    Shoppin' and Test Drivin'
    Just wanted to let any potential CRV owners know. That those head rests/restraints, even though they can be uncomfortable, do actually work.

    okay here are the most common problem causers with cats, this is brief because its pretty simple. number one on my list is fuel additives, they say safe for cats and sensors, that's because the actual additive is safe, and may clean the inside of your motor, but all that stuff has to go...
