No, what we use is even worse than salt. :( My Ram's undercarriage looks like I park it in the Ocean :lol: The Honda, I swear, didn't even feel like the bolts were torqued enough on the passenger side.

Pulled into a restaurant for dinner last night, started hearg clunking from the driver's side. Thought, "Oh, shit" checked my bolts, found one of the swaybar end links a little loose. Nice and quiet again :thumbs: On the road in a minute, wish me luck!
Stay safe and good luck! :thumbs:

Magnesium Chloride and Calcium Chloride. They don't plow any more they just spread that shit. Ruins everything! They use that shit here now

Made it down here, almost 10 hours on the road. Didn't hit any traffic until we were coming out of DC, a bit more around Richmond. Car rode like a dream, tighter than it's been in years. Splurged on new tires as well. Nothing fancy, cheap Firestones, sorry I don't have time to start a tire debate thread :D

Get to drive back tomorrow, rented a chevy Malibu. Lucky us, it's got a satellite radio:thumbs:

And today I get a phone call. In tears, she tells me she swerved away from a car coming at her and hit a sign. She's OK:))), still waiting on word about the car :(

Well, she's back. Flew down Saturday, drove back Sunday. Virginia traffic was ridiculous, NYC not a whole lot better, took close to 12 hours to drive.The Ol' CR-V chugged along just fine. Transmission still makes a bit of shudder when taking off from a stop, might look deeper into that.

Rolled into the driveway 30 miles shy of the 250K mile mark. :D

Rustproofing might be quite overengineered to withstand the salt mist in Japan :D2

But anyway, I don't understand why Hondas have such a high oil consumption.
