    Racks, Hitches and Towing
    I have a 2012 CRV with the Honda roof rack. The rack works well for skis, surfboards etc. However sometime I have the odd large object to rack and the issue is the rack has no way to add left/right stability; only front back. Any suggestions for how to do this? Other cars often have a way to...

    Shoppin' and Test Drivin'
    Am considering a move from a Toyota Camry to CRV. Would like to sit higher, but love how secure I feel in sedan when passing semis. How do crosswinds compare in CRV? How wobbly do you feel when passing trucks? Or when they are passing you?

    Miscellaneous / General CR-V Discussions
    I'm new to this club, and have a question about the electronic stability control in our 2005. We've had a string of snow storms in Denver, and the car has handled them all well. However, my wife got stuck in some snow today for the first time. I had thought the ESC would also include traction...
