      Agree with you also on the Blue Driver scan tool. Bought one about 5 years ago just to keep in the glove box in case I ran into someone needing a scan tool while traveling. Excellent choice for the price!

      So Scotty, I am a wheelchair user who has a Chrysler town and country that has 105k miles on it. It has a ramp system and hand controls. They don't make this model anymore and I was considering a Honda odyssey, but not after seeing your videos on the Hondas. What would you recommend? Are the pacificas any good?

      Scotty Kilmer very true Honda is going down and now with 1.5 sewing turbo engine not so sure...

      I’m done with Honda I’ll stick to Toyota as always had Love the 2.5 liter engine no wonder why taxis put half milion kilometres on them👍🏼👍🏼👍🏼
      Why change if it works little improvement yet not overhaul

    2000s have not been kind to Honda. First the transmission issues with the vans, the designs of the Civic in 2010 and now this CRV issue is a concern. They will fix it, but it is a bit concerning

            Welp, I've recently bought a 2018 Civic Sedan with a 1.6 Diesel engine and automatic transmission... Okay folks, I hate CVT just as much as the next guy, but living in Istanbul you end up having a pure hate for manual transmission. My left leg will never be the same

                  I never liked Honda’s except for the Civix Si, Type R and SE. The Prelude, Odyssey and the Passport. Nothing else. But mainly I’d rather pick Toyota, Subaru, or Mazda

                                Even Toyota blew it some years back when they decided to overtake VW by volume, worldwide. They cut quite a few corners. After many new vehicle owners complained about quality, saner voices prevailed and they waited for volumes to go up at a more measured pace

                                  Honda first mistake was turbo charging the engine. Who in the hell keeps poking Honda of this whole Turbo Chargers is the way to go? My guy... What's wrong with N/A Engines?
                                  Does anyone tell you that adding turbo or super chargers will make any engine more fragile.

                                  Looking for a Civic this year? I suggest getting a Acura ILX. otherwise buy Type R, Si are ok. Avoid 1.5T like a plague. 2.0L will have a higher chance of survival. A/C is a huge problem for current gen civics.

                                    Best car to buy is obviously a lease, or something pre 2005 maybe.

                                                                Most mechanics including scotty and Honda do not understand what really causes the dilution issue in any DI engine. high pressure Fuel pump which is operated by a cam shaft leaks gasoline right there. The high pressure pump is reciprocating type that's why i leaks gasoline.

Is it the pressure at the injector inside the combustion chamber in proximity to the cylinder bore actually spraying atomized fuel by the oil control piston rings because cold engine tolerances?

Since then, it's been on a gradual downward slide. CVTs? Direct injection? Small-displacement, highly-stressed turbo engines? Not for me.

I absolutely love it! But after watching this video I want to run to Toyota to trade it in. Thanks for keeping us informed. I gotta check on that extra year on the warranty too. I bought mine as a pre-owned certified warranty vehicle. Not sure I got that offered. At any rate I’m going to start looking to trade it in I guess.

Toyota is the best if you ignore every bad thing that they have ever done, and the murder lol.

                                                                                    damn blood suckers. Lets just start building are own cars
