Re: Troll: feeding Msantos

Few people bother to discuss Honda Civic, unless they're modding/racer and/or young. Much less the hybrid version. It's a reliable and efficient car that doesn't need all the hand-holding. He kept...

Is sciencerevenue.com scripts slowing down greenhybrid.com topic views?

Index pages seem fine, but recently whenever reading a topic, which is usually done by looking for the newest posts or the last, the page takes a long time to complete. I captured something from...

Re: HCHII v. TCH

What I have observed is that Camry Hybrids tend to never auto stop their internal combustion engines during cold weather. This is from watching steaming car exhaust over a long stretch of road with...

Re: HCHII v. TCH

How is the pass-through clearance for the rear folding seats? When perusing these in a dealership I noticed that the rear seats are the split-folding type but the opening is so small -- and only on...

Re: Finally breaking down and buying snow tires...

I'm in my second Winter too with the OEM Dunlops but I haven't noticed any difference in traction quality.

Re: Seeking Comments on My Winter Performance.

You're living in extreme Winter conditions. Don't blame the car for that.

The OEM Dunlops are fine for Winter, but proper snow tires are wise in some places. Learn to start the car from a stop...

Re: Wow, we need Traction Control.

I suppose the extra 20% weight of the midsize Malibu and the bigger tire patch also had something to do with traction.

Re: Hybrid Emblems on Non-hybrid vehicles.

The highest-volume Toyota dealership in Canada is not above exploiting the look of the Hybrid Synergy Drive emblem for their own means. Don Valley North Toyota sells the following emblem for $18,...

Re: FE World Record

How can they use this kind of news? "Here is some anecdotal evidence to fuel unrealistic expectations of the car." You yourself said you couldn't get that kind of mileage even in ideal conditions. If...

Re: New 2009 Civic Hubrid -- Disapointed in mileage

My first tank was 46 MPG (USA), which to this day is still one of my best. Getting to know the car, taking it easy, and so on. Just common-sense driving, nothing systematic. But that was in the...

Re: Auto Stop feature questions

Front windshield defrost, with its dedicated button on climate control, pumps out dry, hot air with the blower on high. That's for serious Winter conditions. It is a high-drain feature.

Re: New 2009 Civic Hubrid -- Disapointed in mileage

I'm not one of those anti-Goldilocks types who will tell you the manufacturers are wrong and everything is set wrong on the car. It is a cruiser, not a sports car, and it handles a little different...

Re: New 2009 Civic Hubrid -- Disapointed in mileage

To the original poster (melzzz), your initial expectations seem to be way off from the reality of the car. Maybe you were a poorly informed consumer. Any ways, 37 MPG isn't bad; What did you want to...

Re: 2007 HCH Road Noise

Bullshit! It's only scandalous in the minds of the unusually anxious owners. You know that there are documented symptoms to look for; If they don't exist then there's nothing to be done. That's it.

Re: Hybrid civic versus vw diesel tdi 2009 and New Hybrid Honda Insight

Let's do some comparing then, shall we? Without the new Insight, I drew up this compare at fueleconomy.gov, using the HCH-II, Jetta TDI Auto, and Jetta TDI Manual, all 2009 models. Open the attached...
