I've really been enjoying the car but I must say, the Honda cr-v I just turned in never failed me in 3 years.
Looks like I may have to add some cold weather additive to prevent gelling... let's see what the dealer has to say.
I have Kessy and noticed that when the temps drop into the 20's the system will take longer to engage the starter. Kessy waits until the glow plug light goes out and a second or two beyond before attempting to start. This can take up to 5 secs after I press the start button.
