    Honda CRV owners,

    We recently purchased a 2003 CRV and what has happened a couple of
    times is either the engine or muffler sound rough after driving
    through a lot of snow. The first time it happened, I let the CRV sit
    and it was back to normal, the second time it only did it for about 10
    minutes... Can this be something related to water getting in the
    muffler/Catalytic converter?? it starts feeling like you have a
    stinger tailpipe on it and idles rough.

    Thanks in advance for any info.

    You have discovered one of the many Honda quirks!!! Actually this is the
    thing with Civics and Accords also, and it is just getting the muffler wet
    and then it drives off and is okay. Kind of sounds like a Ferrari a little
    huh? I told the dealer about this and they looked at me like I came from
    Mars, but yes this is a Honda thing. I think its 'normal'.

    This happened with the 2001 Civic I used to own and it happens sometimes
    with my 2002 CR-V.
    We had couple days under -25 C recently and the exhaust sounds rough until
    the car warms up.
