    Car Jack Discussion

    I am in need of a replacement tire jack for a 2001 Honda CRV. I can't seem to find this part on the Honda genuine accessories sites. Also, is the stock tire jack a good one, or should I get another type (aftermarket)? thanks!

    I've had 2 jacks bend in half on my recently. Last one was a few days ago while I was with my girlfriend at the movies. I'm not going to be buying another one, I figure I'll check out a small bottle jack at Walmart for 30 bucks.

    yes, I was using them correctly, and no the car did not shift while lifted.

    Do you still have that jack mentioned in 8-13-08? I need a replacement for my 1999 CRV which is now bent out of shape.

    I'd go for the stock one off the VW new beetle. That thing rules, and you don't have to twist on a little wing nut to get it to open and close. You could also get a small hydraulic jack and you can usually use your tire iron to jack it. But sometimes tey aren't very long and you have to set it on a block of wood or something to even jack all the way up to the car.

    VW jacks are called the Widow Maker. Just throwing this out there. From my own experience, stay far away from VW jacks, wait, stay far away from all OEM jacks unless they happen to be a bottle jack.

    This is the way I would go. Bottle jacks are stable, lift much higher weights and are safer.

    The one off the VW this has gives you a heavy screw, no scissor weight, and a crank that allows you to lift the car for very short amounts of time and takes about 30 seconds to lift the car up to working height to get a tire off, change the brakes, and put it back together. Much better than the Cr-v's scissor jack junk.
