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

After the wait notification and progress bar is complete, there is a "Ready" notice. Unfortunately I confirmed it said "Ready" when the door was still stuck closed. It wasn't consistently stuck so I just lived with it. (I did bring it to service attention when it was there for recalls and free first...

Re: When to service/oil change?

Just an FYI, as soon as I reset the tire rotation it said Service Due in 5 Months. Wonder if my wife will be annoyed...

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

Like a fine wine ripening over time, this stuck door is now extremely rare or dare I say no longer happening. Definitely happy...

Re: When to service/oil change?

I got in the car last Sat evening and it said "Service Due Now" for "1" which is tire rotation. 25,5xx miles because my wife does not notify me exactly when it changes. Rotating at 25,565 mi. Want to keep track of next time. Will be interesting as I have the different service intervals staggered now...

Re: Weird behavior while in Hybrid mode

I actually thought these Claritys have normal automatics. (I haven't gotten a chance to research whether I'm right or wrong yet). I forget what conditions, as my wife drives it mostly, but yes I've noticed at times the engine seems to scream foul while accelerating. Knowing I put in quality oil when...

Re: TPMS sensors acting up

If you don't check the tire pressures, the service technician probably noticed how low they'd become and pumped them high to account for that. It is safer to go higher than it is to drop lower than recommended. In fact some sports cars have a higher pressure to set tires to if going above 100 MPH as...

Oil Choice for DIY Changes.

Last January the local dealer offered a free 1st service. This last Sunday I changed the oil for the first time, my oil of choice Mobil 1 Annual Protection 0W-20. Might be a placebo effect but I feel the engine is running/starting smoother. Just thought I’d share...

Re: When to service/oil change?

115xx miles from last service car said A 0 1 2 is due. Replaced the cabin filter and reset 2, still due. Inspected all inspection items as best I could and reset 0, still due. Replaced oil and filter, reset A, and service (1- tire rotation,) due in 2 months. Last tire rotation was about 4300 miles a...

Re: When to service/oil change?

Yesterday I drove the car a little and noticed we are nearing 21300 miles. Still says 6 weeks until due. It will be interesting to see how far mileage wise it will go beyond 10k, which I thought was the original demarcation. One year will be this January sometime...

Re: When to service/oil change?

Looks like we may pass 10k miles since last oil change this month, which is roughly two months early from 1 year. The car says 6 weeks left as of last night, and we are about 100 miles from the 10k mi point. I will report what happens as we may finish the 10k miles by early next week....
