Re: xm ready??

Exactly!
This is why I have learned to do alot of the work on my car myself.
Simply put, especially in new models, the "techs" are reading the same manuals for the first time like I am.

Think!!

Re: Cruise Control Freeway Mileage in 06HCH (Experiment)

I'm in San Diego too and drive 80+ MPH all the time so this is a bit dissapointing but what you said about the FE to speed relationship is backwards.

The relationship between drag and speed is...

Re: Just Curious, Why 2006 HCH and not Prius?

Thanks for post Terry!

Yup, I kinda agree that GM keyless ignition sucks (no offense, I own one in my Caddy). It works 'most of the time' which is totally unacceptable.

But Toyota's version...

Re: Just Curious, Why 2006 HCH and not Prius?

Style is a big motivator for me to get the HCH, but I really wish Honda offered all the options I want like the keyless ignition, HID lights, back up camera, bluetooth......

Re: xm ready??

Correct.

The install is overtly difficult and requires too much dissasembly to make sense for me at this time. 880 bucks to have the chump at the service dept hack up your ride!? No thanks. List...

Re: To NAV or not to NAV?

THATS cool!

I hate it when it locks you out when cars in motion.

Like lucien says, the passenger wants to do some navigating but cant....very frustrating.

Re: What are people paying for their 2006 Civic Hybrids in CA?

If we assume they actually pay invoice for their cars (which they dont) they still make 2000 bucks on everyone of these they sell.

For the most part I think getting MSRP shouldnt be too hard. If...

Re: Cruise Control Freeway Mileage in 06HCH (Experiment)

I've been following your great reseach!
Looks like the sweet spot for mileage is closer to 60 MPH.
I wish it was faster since like most people here in SoCal, I drive around 75-85.

So at that...

Re: How-Many-Think-The 06 HCH Is $ Expensive $

Well I added XM and Extended Warranty and did not count the deduction....either way its still pretty expensive for a Civic. (but pretty cheap for the technology youre gettin):confused:

Re: Hello Everyone ! Newbie needs advice!

Yeah, thats what I think as well.....except the initial installed price of 880 bucks is a big chunk of change!

BTW how is that Bass Speaker that goes in the spare tire? Worth it?

I was thinking of that pair Long HMC/short GM but GM is already at its low (actually bounced) and not quite sure exactly how much downside/how fast is left.

Also there are huge convertible bonds...

Re: How-Many-Think-The 06 HCH Is $ Expensive $

I think its really high....for 27G's there are a lot of choices out there.
For me the draw is good for environment, satisfaction of 51mpg, tax credit, car pool access, and I just really like the...

Re: To NAV or not to NAV?

Re: To NAV or not to NAV?

Does the Nav have a 3D mode?
All the pics on Honda.com has birds eye (classic) view only....I really like the 3D view I have with my portable Navman PiN.
