Re: Range indicator malfunction in Driver Information interface

Two bars HV gas, 52 miles HV range: Went to gas station, added about 1 gallon (car off during filling). Some time later (and after several on - off cycles), still have two bars gas and 52 miles HV range. I added another gallon, should be just over 3 gallons total now. As per the previous poster (sai...

Re: parking sensors?

Meh. Overall, I like the Clarity Touring quite a bit. But, the back up sensors just beep (beeper in the rear close to the trunk) and not all that loud with the volume at max setting. There is No interface to the infotainment system or to either of the displays. Check out the installation pdf https:/...

Re: 12v battery and using accessories - how does it recharge?

If you want to run the dashcam while the car is off (parked), you need to get one of those little interface boxes (all the dash cam stores sell them) that monitors the battery voltage and shuts off the dash cam below some preset voltage. It is not clear (probably not) that the Clarity would run the ...

HONDA "Tech Line Summary Article" HV Range Error - Re: Making suggestions to Honda and software upgrades

I see your point about a public website and possible adverse impact on new car sales; here is another possible approach. The HONDA Clarity reddit subgroup posted a link to a HONDA "Tech Line Summary Article" Fix coming for funky range estimates for the PHEV https://www.reddit.com/r/Clarity/comments/...

Re: Range indicator malfunction in Driver Information interface

Hi Geno88, Welcome! The Range Indicator malfunction mostly applies to the "HV range" on gas, and the total range. For those who do a lot of driving on gas, after the EV battery miles are used, both of the EV (battery) and HV (gas) range numbers are pretty good. But, for those who drive primarily EV,...

Re: Making suggestions to Honda and software upgrades

HONDA needs to have a Clarity web page which lists known bugs and problems. For each problem, HONDA could indicate if a fix is in the works. A common public web page would save HONDA a lot of grief and unnecessary and duplicative communications. HONDA needs to understand that their talk to HONDA onl...

Re: Range indicator malfunction in Driver Information interface

The plug-in EV range may drop in the winter temps to 30 miles or less (full re-charge), especially in colder northern climates. This is completely normal and to be expected. In summer temps (by about 70F), many drivers will see EV ranges over 50 miles. It is surprising (or, maybe not) that Honda dea...

Re: Price paid on your Clarity

I bought my Clarity Touring 2 weeks ago. The dealership gave me $250 credit and said Honda was giving a $2000 credit. After listing the accessories I wanted, they came down an additional $150. I negotiated $150 more to get the monthly payment where I wanted it to be. I live in Western NY. Did the d...

Honda Clarity HV range and Total Range "Errors"

HV Range error, HV range and total range estimates of a 1,000 miles are common now. Honda PR says the HV (gas) range is determined by past driving style, which apparently means that it is based on effective (lifetime?) miles per gallon. If you drive primarily EV, you may have a HV (gas) range that i...
