I just purchased the new 2012 CRV - EX with the new ECON button. I am confused and the dealer seems to be confused about when it is ON or OFF and there are conflicting statements all over the internet to what the manual says. The manual and a lot of reviewers (who only read the manual on the ECON button) say that you push the button to turn it on. But when I turn the car on the ECON button is already lit on the dash panel which I believe means that it comes on automatically and you have the option to turn it off. But the reviews and manual say that you have to push the button to turn it on? You can't tell by performance whether it's on or off. Does anyone know for sure if it automatically comes ON when you start the car when you see the ECON icon lit on the panel -- or is it ON when you push the ECON button and the icon disappears from the display panel? The dealer doesn't know either -- they were confused.
