Re: DontSettleWithHonda.org RE: '06-'06 HCHs

Here's my plan (as of today):
I have a 06, so I get 2 x $100 and 2 x $500 rebates that can be transferred (sold on eBay for around $400 apiece)=$1,000. This plus the federal tax credit ($2,100) that...

Re: Has this happened to anyone elses 06HCH?

Dealership just told me that I have to wait for the IMA light to appear before he can do anything. He said he expects Honda to do something about all the bad IMAs out there. Either via Recall or...

Re: Has this happened to anyone elses 06HCH?

The dealership was more accommodating than I thought. It helps to have MPG stats to back up my claim. They were especially concerned that the battery would drop down to 2 bars after a mile of...

Re: Has this happened to anyone elses 06HCH?

Thanks H! I had to clear off the window to see the red dot with blue around it. I think the software fix just reduces the amount of assist is provided by the hybrid battery. I'm basically getting the...

Re: Has this happened to anyone elses 06HCH?

I didn't get LRR tires. I can't imagine that tires can account for ~15MPG. 0-1MPG I'll give up for more traction in the winter.

H-what are u talking about sight eye showing blue with a red dot?

Re: Battery crash / no regen braking??

I just noticed it this morning. Started it up and watched the battery level sink like a stone. I have an 06 with 24k miles. I'll be watching more closely because it's killing my MPGs!

Re: Tax break two years in a row

I thought I read once that the car has to be held for a min. of 3 or 4 years for the tax credit to be 100%. Otherwise a prorated amount would have to be refunded to the IRS. You might want to check...

Re: First Year With A HCH2 & Without A SUV

7.5k, 9.6k with the tax credit. It was a 99.5 Pathfinder with a 30k sticker. The sticker on the hch2 was 22.5. A no-brainer for me.

Re: GM shows Chevy plug-in concept

What a great concept! If GM stuck with the EV1, it would have evolved into the Volt and be in production today.
Now we have to pray that GM can be profitable enough to realistically take on the...

Re: Initial Impressions

I've driven the 06 HCH for almost a year. I've applied different techniques. My conclusion is that it's impossible to prove the effectiveness of most of the techniques, due to the fact of constantly...

I'm a bit disappointed in that it doesn't drive on electric-only under 30 MPH like the brochure says.
