Re: Battery Upgrade?

I'm just now coming up on 60k miles on my '06 HCHII, and even with a change to standard radial tires, haven't seen any significant drop in fuel economy. The batteries seem to be just fine, but I'm...

Battery Upgrade?

I was reading the improved specifications of the new Insight's batteries, and wondered if an upgrade/retrofit would be something that Honda might offer someday for the Civics. More output and less...

Re: Anyone in CA received their HOV lane stickers?

Well, I understand the Govenator signed it, and those of us with stickers are good till 2011! Woo-hoo! And those of us without have another shot at it!

Re: 2007 model info up at honda.com - any changes ?

I looked closely at all the pics on the HCH pages, and simply can't find anything cosmetically different from my 06 HCHII. Typically Honda doesn't mess with designs for a couple years or so. I...

Re: Gen 1 Rulz!!

OK, good point on the FE with the Gen1, but how about that air-con during the summer when you've got auto-stop on? Not too cool, eh? Funny, my car still blows cold air at a stop light. And.......

Angry Re: CA Clean Air Sticker - What Number?

That reminds me -- the other day on the 405N around Long Beach, we saw an Accord Hybrid with a clean-air sticker on it:angry:. If I'd have been driving, I'd have sped up and written down their...

Re: I was very surprized by this MPG

Yep, that would be EV mode. Pretty elusive on the HCHII, but attainable. Waaaay easier to do in the toyotas, tho.

Re: When to do first oil change

I stand corrected regarding the technology for determining when an oil change is needed, but I also don't think it's on the Civic -- When I got close to 1,000 miles, it started reading 90% and went...

Talking Re: When to do first oil change

Oh, my God :eek:-- that is such utter bull! I bet after work that salesman was having a beer with his co-workers and laughing his a$$ off.

Can anybody top that car saleman lie???

Re: Anyone in CA received their HOV lane stickers?

Here's something funny: In the last week, there have been two times where the person riding my *** in the carpool lane was another solo driver in a Civic Hybrid. I tend to go about 68-69 and...

Duh -- that would 'void' the sticker. Just kidding about the 'duh', but you get my point.:)

Re: Honda Music Link (for iPodŽ)

Just makes me nuts when instead of saying "I don't know, but I'll find out.", they just make up any old crap and spew it!

Re: ima battery replacement

I'm not so worried about the battery in my '06 HCH for two reasons:

1) If I drove the car long enough for the battery to go south, I'm fairly confident that by that time the cost and efficiency of...

Re: Anyone in CA received their HOV lane stickers?

I'm finding that, when I use the carpool lane, my fuel economy takes a hit. That's because it's not safe (or sane) to go 65mph in the carpool lanes in So Cal. Seems the minimum I can get away with...

Talking Re: When to do first oil change

I don't think there's any magic to the oil life indicator. It's set to go down 10% every 1,000 miles until you reach 10,000 miles just as the manual recommends.

Re: How much did you pay for your hybrid civic?

I paid $2k over MSRP and took delivery of the first one to hit the lot in Southern California.

Now, how many people feel really, really GOOD after hearing that?

Re: Article about Slow Hybrid in Carpool Lanes

The only situation in which I would use the carpool lane in my HCHII is if the traffic was very slow in the solo lanes. Then, usually, the traffic in the carpool lane isn't going even the speed...

Re: Anyone in CA received their HOV lane stickers?

IIRC they add a "penalty assessment" onto the fine, so you're really in it for over $500. Anyone can verify?

Re: 2006 Civic Hybrid - Electric Motor Only?

Yeah -- I agree -- check the other thread. However, it's darned tricky to get into EV-only mode with the HCHII's at first. Dodgy even if you've had it a while, too. For the most part, I just gave...

Red face Re: Ethanol -- Can HCH I or II Run on It?

While I don't necessarily WANT to run E10, my original post simply inquired whether the HCHI or II COULD run it since we're being steered toward ethanol.

However, after watching the last 60...
