    Maintenance and Service
    I'm looking to start doing my own oil changes and rotations. I see a few 3-ton floor jacks with ~18" max height on sale here and there. Is this sufficient to clear the wheels off the ground? It's occasionally cheaper than Harbor Freight's 3-ton jack. Thanks!

    Problems & Issues
    Can anyone tell me where the left-hand (driver's side) running light (low-beam) is grounded? I'm afraid if I don't find the grounding screw, I will lose other systems if there is corrosion there.

    Shopping & Test Driving
    I just test drove a euro spec 2001 CRV and I was shocked at how low he exhaust hangs down? Is this factory? Is there a relocation kit on the market? Honestly there was only 6" clearance under the muffler. Is this due to the 4x4 drive shaft location?
