RE: how to get spare key?

Don't know about Subaru dealers, but my Ford dealer cut a plain key for me. Near as I remember it cost about $5, but that was three years ago.

RE: Which State Has the Best Drivers?

I belive Texas has the friendliest drivers but the best i think are in Oklahoma Well, I guess you haven't spent much time or lived in Oklahoma. If it's got an OU sticker on it, you had better watch out. It will either run you off the road cutting you off without a signal, or run into you going too fast. 9 years there was enough... Is there a good speed to have people run into you?

RE: Little Farm on the River

For those of you who have stayed here ... If we stay at the rivers edge sites, is it a long walk to the bath house? Thanks! They have a bath house on the river edge part of the CG, around site 150. If you reserve a site in that area, it's a short walk. The web site does have a CG map with site numbers you can look at on littlefarmresort.com

RE: 2015 CRV and Towing

I bought one of the last of the 2014 models last month. If you check around, you should be able to find some still on the dealer lots. Good catch on your part, read on here someone bought a new Jeep Cherokee with wrong transmission and it would not tow 4 down. They were up a creek. Thanks. There have been rumors printed in various car magazines that the 2015 was going to have a CVT, and currently no car with a CVT is flat towable. Hubby and I decided to get a 2014 while the selection was good. ..Minor correction, but: The Ford Cmax and Fusion hybrids have a CVT transmission, and they are flat towable, with full factory support (although they are probably about the ONLY CVT transmission vehicles that can be flat towed, haha). Thats what we have (a 2013 Fusion Hybrid), and we are very happy with it. Will Thanks for the correction. This gets corrected about once a month, several times by me. No one ever seems to remember the Ford Hybrid CVT is the exception to the rule.

RE: 2015 Honda CRV....... not towable

A steel belt driven CVT is not towable on all four wheels, with the increase in popularity in belt driven CVTs in small cars there will probably be fewre flat tow options available. The Ford hybrid's are power-split CVTs, the CVT feature is provided through a planetary gear set as opposed to a steel belt, this architecture is easier to design for flat tow capability than a steel pusher belt CVT is. Wonder why they don't all do it that way. Our Escape Hybrid had been great as a toad, CVT and all.

RE: KY, OH, IN or TN

Little Farm on the river in Rising Sun Indiana is nice, has full hookups, and you can reserve sites on the river. Not very exciting camping, but it would do for a shakedown trip. They have a web site. I don't remember the name, but it comes up if you do a search for Little Farm on the River.

RE: How is I-75 in Ohio?

We came south from Toledo to Ky on I-75 last week, and except for construction on about a 30 mile section south of Toledo followed by construction through Dayton, and then the section in Cincinnati, it wasn't bad. Lane restrictions all over the place and very rough pavement, but it didn't really delay us much. Maybe 475 in Dayton would have been better, but we didn't try it. Good luck.

RE: Grand Canyon Skywalk

Thanks for the post. The article was very interesting.

RE: Ford C-Max Plug-in Hybrid

.. It is also really, really nice to have at campgrounds and parks, since you can ride around almost totally silent (and emission free), without bothering other campers as much. Its almost like having a big, very comfortable golf cart to ride around in, haha. :) Gotta be careful with that silent thing. We keep running over walkers who didn't hear us coming.

RE: Beep Beep Beep

Our Aspect has always had a slight beep beep problem. About twice a year it beeps and the red light comes on telling us the jacks are down, so I go back to the HWH control panel and hit the store button and it stops. The dealer never could fix it. Wonder if he knows about the day of the week thing?

RE: Note to Self

Note to self. It doesn't do much good to write notes if you forget to read them (or forget where you put them).

RE: 2015 Honda Fit

We've been towing our Escape Hybrid with CVT for 6 years, so I'd disagree with the blanket statement that CVT's can't be towed. It seems to be a matter of design. You have to check the owners manual.

RE: C Max Towing in key off position

You can say that again. (This is an unnecessary post to check my current status)

RE: cumberland parkway or another route?

80 is also no problem. It has some hills, but no big curves. Easy to run the speed limit.

RE: Ford Escape & other options

I believe that even with the Remco Tranny pump that some Escape owners have still had issues with tranny failure before and after the so called cut off date. Since you like the Escape that much, you might want to look for an Escape Hybrid. We have a fully loaded 2012 4WD Escape Hybrid Limited which is great. As you already know, it is quiet and comfortable plus it tows well. Nothing to do but turn key to accessory and put it in neutral. Towing speed limit is 75 mph and you don't have to run it thru any tranny circulation procedures. Also NYC has been using the FEH in cabs and they have routinely been going over 300,000 miles with any drivetrain or battery issues. We love our Escape Hybrid too. Sad that Ford no longer makes it.

RE: Pondering Interstate Highways

I-74 is another off and on interstate. It comes from the west and ends in Cincinnati, then it picks up in North Carolina. No idea how it makes that jump. Also the NC segment seems to run north and south, at least the part I drove.

RE: walmart

I bet that if this thread was about the parking area at Cracker Barrel or Camping World, it would have dies after one page. Nothing like the name "Walmart" to get a....ah, spirited debate going. The plural of die is dice, not dies.

RE: Automatic trannys four down

Kyhawk, you say in your email that any 4x4 with transfer can be towed 4 down ,is that for sure on all of them, I am trying to find if anyone has done that with a Nissan xterra and had no problems, I hve done that with acouple other cars I had andit worked ok, but before I do it with my xterre I would like to hear from someone that has done. Not me! I only posted about our Escape Hybrid, and did no E-mails.

RE: Automatic trannys four down

There is no automatic transmission car (other than 4x4 with neutral in the transfer case) that does not have to be periodically run to relubricate. There are few manual transmission cars that don't have to periodically run for lubrication. If you make that a requirement, almost nothing is towable. Hehe, you need to do more research before making statements like this. :) Ford's Fusion hybrid and Cmax hybrid works exactly that way - Flat tow it all you want up to 70 mph, no need to ever stop and crank the engine to relubricate. The eCVT transmission keeps itself lubricated just fine. 'Tis why I said in previous post, that IMO these vehicles are some of the easiest, most simple automatic tranny vehicles to tow. Will Our Escape hybrid works the same way. Too bad they no longer make it.
