Re: PHEV: Fuel Door Getting Stuck/Not Opening.

Still getting stuck. Today it was 50%. First time it didn't open. Took a picture of the Ready indicator, and then the still closed cover. Second press and it popped open. Haven't taken it to the dealer yet, as I felt might not be a good use of time....

Re: Full Electric Availability

Regarding the trunk glass, is getting a tint an option for you? Navigation updates are found here, free for 5 years, which is nice when compared to other brands: www.garmin.com/honda I’m not fond of the washer sprays being on the wiper arms, but I haven’t figured out how to adjust them yet. I purcha...

Re: Am I doing damage driving with no charge for too long?

Rereading what I said it doesn’t quite make sense. My apologies.

A brand manager for smart at a local dealership said some EV (ED) owners ran the car until it stopped. This ended up damaging the battery.

Re: Am I doing damage driving with no charge for too long?

I have not read of any such concern on the PHEV, only possibly the pure EV version. (I haven't read through the entire manual yet I must confess)...

SCE $450/$1000 Rebate Availability.

Just applied for the $450 rebate even though it’s been over a year since purchase. Hopefully approved as my parents were switched to Clean Power Alliance as our electricity provider, yet serviced by SCE....

Re: PHEV Burning Smell Hybrid Driving For About 18 mi.

I never ended up asking after draining out what I perceived was an excess amount of oil. For $10 here: https://techinfo.honda.com/rjanisis/logon.aspx I pulled up the procedure to check the oil level and found it high. I assumed that was the reason and just moved on. My plan was if it were to smell a...

Re: PHEV Burning Smell Hybrid Driving For About 18 mi.

So far no more burning smell. I did add some more coolant to the EV battery reservoir. It is quite difficult for me to check and add with the cover in the way and is something you’re supposed to bring to the dealer for checking, per the manual.

Had one oil change so far done at the dealer....
