Best SUV for Towing 1400kg

I'm considering a Honda CR-V to tow my boat. Specific requirements are full-size spare (as some longer trips likely) and electric driver's seat with memory (it's a pain when we swap cars - other car is a Mazda CX-9 Luxury). The ability to tow a 1400kg boat would be a plus, but the CX-9 does that with ease.

Should I Buy a Volkswagen Golf or a Mazda3?

I want to spend around $30,000 on a new car, have driven test Golf Highline and Mazda SP25GT. Loved the ride and engine response in the Volkswagen Golf Highline. The Mazda3 SP25 GT was nicely optioned but left me a little flat with its ride. Not really sure what car to go for. Any suggestions in my price range?

Should I Buy the Toyota RAV4, Mazda CX-5 or Honda CR-V?

I have looked at the Mazda CX-5 petrol. Found it a bit sluggish and boot room seemed a bit too tight for 3 kids. Drove the Mazda6 wagon too - again boot room was a bit small. So decided to look at Toyota RAV 4 as wife is a big Toyota fan. Liked it drive-wise and boot space wise but in terms of internal layout etc was a bit boring. Apparently they also have a diesel which are easier to come by. Drove the Honda CR-V today and loved it to bits. Kids were happy with back seat and cargo space was good too. Wife still prefers the Toyota RAV4 and I prefer the Honda CRV (seems to be better built and drives better plus is cheaper!!). Any suggestions / recommendations?

How Do I Replace My Yaw Sensor?

I hope you can help. The VSA indicater light on my (wide bodied) Honda Accord instrument panel is on constantly. A Honda dealer did the normal "diagnostic " check and quoted $1300 for a new yaw sensor. I rang a wrecking yard and was told they had the right model and the sensor would cost me $200 - except they couldn't find where it was.
