We use premium in our porsche carrera and our boxster, and I wasn't sure if the VX requires that as well?

    This is not the place to discuss the topic farther but before you start a new thread here is my .02 cents....

    If you have recently filled up make sure you tightened the Gas cap all the way. I hve had the CEL on numerous times because I am forgetful and do not tighten enough.

    ^^thank you! i'll go out and check it right now.

    i really appreciate the info!

    i know...i should have probably mentioned the CEL part in a diff. thread but thought i'd go ahead and throw it out there in my introduction.

    thanks much...i'll keep my eye on the other threads about engine things!

    dang....it wasn't the gas cap. it was on tight. i wish it was that simple and it isn't something major. =(

    Welcome to family VXGirlie01! Looks like you’re getting around the site just fine. Be sure to always run anything you have done to your VX thru us before you have someone work on it. This site can potentially save you thousands.

    PS: You have great taste in vehicles.
    Cars designed by spreadsheets make sense. Cars designed by engineers make history.

    ps..i took a peek at your link to your 01 VX. nice pictures!!!
    Oh well I am sure you will not do this, but do not take it somewhere where they will charge you to read the code, any AutoZone will read the code for you for free.

    Introduction

    My name is AleX Dean and I live in Vancouver, Washington, which is right across the river from Portland, Oregon (Not Canada). I bought my V-cross 3 years ago. I had never heard of it, but a friend of a friend was selling one. At first I refused to test drive it because I knew that if I did, I would want it. But eventually I broke down, drove it, and bought it.

    Hi Alex, Welcome to the forum. It's nice to see another Vancouver vx'r here. There are several in town but no others on here that I know of. You'll find this is a great place with good people and tons of info.
    I don't think I've seen you around town. What area are you from? I'm over by the hospital/ Mill Plain area.

    Hello my names brian from philadelphia pa i have a 99 silver vx with black and red interior my new VX family i first saw the vx on a tv show were they used them to track down monster,gost and the abnormal,thats when i knew i had to have one. It took me eight months to locate one this was back in 2k,i happen to be lookin through the local paper when i saw a local dealership with one but it didn't have a price listed,plus i guess cosiged for my girl friend to get a new car at that time so i didnt thing no more of it.Then i talked about to my girl friend about she said i should go check out so we did,and the rest is history it had a 75,000mls on it now it has 130,000mls and it still rus good and love and whould't trade it for nothing its an eye cather,head turner and conversation piece.Iam glad i found this website were people understand my enjoyment for the vx .
