  2. Seized Brake Caliper

    Problems & Issues
    So yesterday my front right caliper seized, getting very hot and causing the entire car to vibrate. Do you think I will have to replace the caliper, or is it usually just the slide pins that seize? How will I tell the difference? I plan on tackling this myself.

  7. CRV 2015 is Unsafe

    Problems & Issues
    The extremely high rev turned out to be the new CVT transmission downshifting on a small hill, or just heading up another. Drove the vehicle with the Honda Canada engineer. He recorded 3000 rpm (it must have been 4000 rpm for me, driving alone earlier). Any such rev is quickly calmed by a touch...
