yeilBagheera,You wrote, Finally the axle broke (in a parking lot, so no traffic problems). DH called a tow truck for the broken car and me for a ride home. I assume that was the old car. What was it?I've had Hondas most of my driving life. The older ones had problems with the boots that cover the CV joints. ( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Constant-velocity_joint ) You had to catch those quick to avoid having to rebuild a CV joint - which is labor intensive (like half a day) and can be expensive. After I had to have a couple rebuilt, I took to personally inspecting the boots every time I had the oil changed. Much cheaper to just replace a boot.These days Honda CV boots are supposed to be much more durable; but I still doubt they stand up to an Alaskan winter all that well.And my mechanic used to tell me that *eventually* a contaminated CV join would seize up and you actually could have the wheel fall off... :-)- Joel
