#64 of 374 History of Trip A with Refuel Reset
Dec 18, 2012 (4:17 am)
Today I refueled and instead of starting the car right up I did this instead and the system dropped down the miles and mpg information.
On last refuel I got back in and just turned key to start.
Today I stopped at on and let it load. It didn't reset. Then I started.
The system reloaded. Reset trip to zero due to refuel and dropped down the mpg and total miles for that tank.
So now I have one tank with no mpg info and one with on the previous section of screen. Seems like an easy work around!

If we overlook the jerky trannys, body panel gaps, paint problems and electric whines-it should be car of the year!

The car they submit for review for that award will probably be very well tested and perfect! Assuming Motor Trend doesn't just go look at any one out there when determining COTY Award.

I have the same problem - first my phone connection will say "audio not available", then my volume will freeze and my phone is muted, and sometimes I hear the static and buzzing too. The only way to stop it is to restart the car. I would be interested to hear what your dealer says, I called mine and they said they have not heard of this.

Thanks pgm17 for discovering this workaround. I'll use it.
#69 of 374 Paint defect...
Dec 25, 2012 (3:03 am)
Recently took delivery of a CVT Sport. A couple of days later, while washing it, I discovered, what seems to be, some small debris caught under the paint during the manufacturing process. Unfortunately, with how I tend to fixate on things, it's not allowing me to enjoy my new car completely. After Christmas, I will be contacting my dealer to let them know about this issue. Although I'll expect the typical dealer response, I have no intentions of repainting any part of the vehicle or letting the dealer try to "fix" the problem. Tell me what you think. Should I just let it be and try to enjoy the car?

Hopefully as time goes by you will be able to ignore this defect. Sloppy work though.

maxgts1, I notice from your previous posts you are in S Florida as well. Who did you buy and/or plan to use for service?
I used largo for sale but may use braman for service.
I would say leave it. Don't want to mess with original paint.
On our LX which I got weekend before thanksgiving we scratched up the bumper taking/putting the baby stroller into the trunk.
On a couple day old car I thought I handled it pretty well. And still haven't even put touch up paint. Sometimes have to let it go and enjoy the sweet ride you got on the sport model.

Hi pgm17. Not sure yet where I'll be getting it serviced. I took a drive by Jap Tech in Broward to get a price sheet. They've been around for quite a long time. Met the owner, who was very friendly. Mostly positive reviews. I believe they have a location in Dade too. My closest dealer would be Rick Case Honda. My only fear is the detailer at a dealer hacking up my paint job with the free wash that's included with service.
