Not surprised. After reading how they work it sounds like they were designed by Mickey Mouse.



Kilmer if I recall has a video says CVT are all crap.

Does it rain everyday there or was that just my imagination.

Yes, but it's a dry rain.

Doesn't Oregon have the highest suicide rate in the country? I want to kill myself just thinking about going back there.

I took this picture with my phone after I parked it. That's the Wilderness of my backyard but I dare not enter alone.



Just turned the radio on for the first time and discovered it's a 7 year old Alpine Stereo with Bluetooth that sold for $700 in 2013. Put in a Sinatra CD and with the 10 speaker system that came with the van and a huge subwoofer in the back it sounds fantastic. Just keeps getting better and better.

You live in Michigan, I can't even imagine why you are still ticking.

I have had my Honda for two weeks and the radio is still on the same station as when I got it. I will eventually figure out how to tune it to AM.

It rains more frequently in Portland than most places in the USA, and there are more cloudy days than the norm, but the overall yearly rainfall amount is similar to east of the Mississippi.

This past April was the driest April on record, however.

Hello, climate change!

Here's a photo taken last fall a couple miles away from my buddy's home near the Oregon coast, outside of Lincoln City:

Note: some rain would have been welcome that day ...
