    this weekend i used clay to remove all the rough feel of the paint. I will wax before calling it a day So far love the way it drives. I have been in the CRX forums for many years, but let it go a couple of years ago after 10 years of tinkering with the CRX. I guess I now graduated to the WRX forum

    after this weekend, the car has just over 121,000 miles. So far I have owned only 2 cars to reach beyond 200k on original motor. But since the place i purchased it sold me an extended warranty 36 mos / 75,000 mi from time of purchase, I'm covered until approx 195K. I think I got one heck of a deal.

    Thanks for the compliments. I only thank the original owner for taking such good care of it. I can only take credit for finding it and buying it.

    Congrats, welcome. Beautiful car, sure doesn't look like it has 120K. Looks great inside and out, previous owner obviously has taken good care of it, that's reassuring. Nice to have the warranty for some peace of mind too.

    Check Engine Light

    Boohoo , i started it up today and the CEL was lit and 'Cruise' light blinking. Has anyone seen this? I'm going to google to see how to check for the code. Any help would be appreciated.

    She drives fine, just cruise control does not work.
    As far as I can tell, no mods on her what so ever. Since i got her I drove 500 miles, and waxed her.

    I bought a OBD code scanner and found that #4 cyl misfire detected. As I listened to the engine, it did not seem to occur too often. I just deleted the code and no problems so far.
