    Rainy Day Blues

    First I will say my wife (her car) loves this new 2013 CR-V. She drove a Honda Pilot for 10 yrs and did not want to change but now that she has tasted the V she is in love with it.

    One pet peeve- On rainy days when you open the door or roll down the window you get drenched. The door, locks and window switches get excessively wet. I tried to dry it off with a tissue but needed to get a couple paper towel sheets.

    I am hoping that over time this does not affect the window switches and other electronics wirings that are in the door. I am sure this must happen on the passenger side but haven't tried it yet.

    I don't think you will have a problem. I have owned my oldest CR-V since September 1999. It has seen 176,000 miles as my work vehicle. I open and close the door at about 15 stops per day, many times getting VERY wet (welcome to Flood-rida). Nothing has stopped working to date. I did replace the driver's side door lock actuator a few years ago, but that was due to me locking/unlocking the door about 40 times per day ... just flat worn out.

    I usually keep a small MF cloth in our Gen 1 for the very same reason. if the rain (snow in our case) build up is too heavy, I'll give it a quick wipe down after settling into the car.

    Yeah VT, I have adopted that same strategy- Couple of wipes with the MF and all is well- but still think it is something that I shouldn't have to do when it rains. Other then that I am finding myself more and more asking permission to drive the wife's car. It is a fine ride.
