    Cooper CS5 review

    Have a H-rated set on a '03 CR-V with 20K miles so far and there was certainly a MPG hit that hasn't fully gone away. However, the tires have great grip due to the rubber having a bit more flex than comparable tires. I'll gladly trade sure footing for a small loss in MPG.

    M1 made our '03 CR-V the quietest it has ever been.

    Automatic transmission longevity: fluids & OCI

    Vehicle is a 2003 CR-V. All I've ever heard about Hondas are to use OEM fluid, be it Z-1/DW-1 for the transmission or the specific power steering fluid. Since the power steering fluid on a Honda is an entirely different beast than regular ATF or PSF, I did a turkey baster drain and replaced the...

    Castrol Import Trans Fluid A Good Substitution??

    Did a drain and fill with Castrol on an '03 CR-V and it shifts better than before.

    Troubling Oil Report

    These TDIs can take quite some time for the break-in to occur; I've seen it go as long as 60,000 or more. Stick with a VW507 oil and drop back to 10K OCI.

    '12 VW Passat TDI - Pennzoil Ultra Euro L 5w-30

    I'd stick with the Euro L on 10K changes for now. It's shear stable and TBN retention is strong (must be all the long drives!). I don't believe aluminum tracks with mileage so their suggestion of upping to 12K miles might not be a bad idea given the condition of the oil. Maybe try Mobil 1 ESP...

    Continental ControlContact Tour A/S?

    I have not had personal experience but I have heard the same thing that it's a America's/Discount Tire exclusive version of the TrueContact. The tread design is very similar and both carry the 90,000 mileage warranty with LRR.

    Opinions on Falken Ziex ZE329 tires at Pep Boys

    If you can wait a couple days, America's/Discount Tire is likely running in-store sales. Their July 4th sale is usually loaded with rebates on top of manufacturer ones.
