#72 of 80 Are HOV stickers still available for the Honda Civic GX?
Jan 26, 2010 (10:31 am)
I'm looking at a new job with a commute through the SF / SJ bay area.
If I purchase a new Civic GX, (Natural Gas) can I still get HOV stickers?
Do I have to trade in a clunker to get the tax credit?

HOV stickers are still available for 01-current GXs.
#74 of 80 40mpg is possible, and update on bridges?
Jan 27, 2010 (7:18 pm)
i'm replying to someone asking about my 40mpg statement many months back. yes, i often got 40mpg on a tank and that was commuting in the bay area (including across the bay bridge). i was often able to go over this on all highway jaunts. i had an 07 GX with no modifications. on open road, i always drove 75-80, but usually was doing more like 45-50 due to traffic (but in the HOV lane). i was just always very gentle on acceleration and tried to do my best at not braking ... ie. thinking ahead as much as is possible. it's true that mpg varies will fill, etc ... but over 50,000 miles i averaged 37mpg total.
i've sold 'natalie' to a friend, so am no longer checking the site ... but today was wondering if there was any gossip on the status of the silver sticker bridge access now that they've announced increases in tolls (including for carpools)????
#75 of 80 value of civic hybrid with HOV stickers

I may have to sell my 2006 civic hybrid---I got too many dogs and need a bigger car. Does anyone know whether or not having the yellow HOV stickers on a hybrid increases its value? I've heard that it does. If so, by how much?

I just bought 2010 GX and DMV is saying it will take 60-90 days to get my HOV stickers, due to furloughs and backlog. Wow, seems like it took me just a few weeks when I did this with my Prius 4 years ago.
Would be interested to hear other wait times for those getting HOV stickers for the GX.

I bought my GX about a month ago but haven't received my CA HOV stickers yet. However, I started driving solo in the HOV lane from day one, and haven't encountered any problems despite having been followed or passed by California Highway Patrol officers on at least two occasions. As you know, the CNG sticker is prominently displayed on the GX. If I get pulled over, I plan to pull out my copy of the HOV sticker application and be ready with an apology...

Having a qualified vehicle isn't enough. You have to have the stickers on your car. You'll need a lot of luck if you get pulled over.

We have an original 1998 Civic GX and have the while HOV access sticker. We had to replace the original, because it was not designed for longevity (unlike the car) and had no problems getting it.
