We're estimated to get anywhere from 6 - 10 inches in NJ! I can't wait to go home and play either..... it'll be the first chance I get to "PILOT" thru the snow.... :2:Casanewt said:We got approx. 4 inches in Cincy. I getting all worried looking out the window here at work that the road crews won't leave me a place to play with my Pilot in the snow tonight!! Nah, I will find some.
I have hated snow plows for as long as I can remember. We used to throw snowballs at them when I was a kid because they would clear a path for the school busses. When I got older I hated them even more because they would always arrive just after I finished shoveling the driveway and would dump a few feet of packed hard snow at the end of the driveway when passing.bah -- I see snow plows now... they are ruining my experiments.
I also got a chance to take my PILOT out for some snow fun today. Here in southeastern PA we have about 8 inches and the PILOT handled everything beautifully. I was anxious to drive some roads that I would never think about in my Maxima.ontheverge said:Seven to eight inches here in south central PA! I took the Pilot out on some unplowed dirt roads and steep hills - I am totally impressed! Nothing could stop it. The VTM-4 is seamless in it's operation and handles steep grades from a stop effortlessly. It's amazing as a front drive vehicle after the VTM-4 has done it's job as well. Climbing hills at 20 - 25 MPH after the VTM-4 shuts off is no sweat for the Pilot. Bring on the snow!:2:
I assume this part of your message was in reference to my post.royalairforce said:
Your comment about the VTM-4 disengaging I don't understand. I thought that the LOCK on the VTM-4 would disengage after 18 mph, but if the system needed it above that speed it would kick it in automatically and NOT be able to be locked in.
Is my understanding correct?
If the light does not go out, it might be reasonable to expect the lock to reactivate if the speed drops below 18mph. I haven't yet heard anything definitive on this.jfrano said:
Yes, the VTM LOCK disengages after 18mph. I had thought the LIGHT on the VTM switch would go off after 18 mph. This is NOT the case, the VTM lock light stays lite, although, in speaking to Honda, the VTM lock DOES disengage after 18 EVEN though the light is still lite. The Pilot VTM system does indeed function after 18 mph, however, NOT to the degree that the VTM LOCK provides, which is a 50/50 split.
