Wish there was a plug in hybrid in the CRV’s future.
We're due one in the UK (Q3) as is Europe.Wish there was a plug in hybrid in the CRV’s future.
Me too, but in most vehicles available today, that's a $5,000 - $10,000 upgrade.Wish there was a plug in hybrid in the CRV’s future.
But, potentially eligible for a $7500 EV credit.Me too, but in most vehicles available today, that's a $5,000 - $10,000 upgrade.
I'm still amazed at how differently hybrids are marketed in the UK, vs the US....
As noted many, many times - hybrids are designed to reduce tailpipe emissions first and foremost - not chase MPG.
True...the annoying STOP/START is an emissions thing (tho' it DOES save some fuel, if you can stand it).I'm still amazed at how differently hybrids are marketed in the UK, vs the US.
Marketing aside, most on both sides of the pond will agree tailpipe emissions are the primary goal of hybrids. How that goal is promoted is another matter entirely.I'm still amazed at how differently hybrids are marketed in the UK, vs the US.
Theres a reason they didnt as I explained before. Its NOT an EV nor does it pretend to be.They could have at least added some extra battery capacity.
Not for this thread/section for such discussion - start a new one here.I am seriously thinking of getting an aftermarket Android unit as soon as I go over 36,000 miles and am out of warranty, because the Honda unit is so slow.
The 12v battery primarily runs the electronics in the car. It is not a starter battery, however if it fails, the car will not start, as it wouldn’t be able run all the “pre-flight” checks necessary for the car to start.Hi, I am seriously considering purchasing a '23 Sport Touring Hybrid, and when I visited the dealer, I noticed that the 12V battery is tiny. I couldn't see any markings on it, but my guess is that it is somewhere in the 25-30Ah range based on size (anyone know?). So that leads to some questions:
- What does the 12V battery do in a hybrid vehicle? Is it used for starting or for legacy 12V electronics?
- Does the high-voltage lithium battery obviate the need for jumper cables, i.e. if the 12V battery dies for some reason, will the lithium battery pack start the ICE?
The scenario I'm envisioning is being out camping miles from civilization and someone does something to cause the 12V battery to drain. Will I need have jumper cables or jumper battery pack, or does the lithium battery act as a backup... or is it also the starter battery?
Thanks for the info- the dealer couldn't answer my questions.
Finger wipe before getting in the car?I found the rear backup cam is super easy to get dirty and affect the view, especially at night
i tried with apply some ceramic coating on it, but nothing happen
just wonder if you guys has any solution to improve it?
BD is probably just a designation used by by dealer to differentiate between cars with and cars without. Just wanted to start a discussion and see if anyone else is aware of the change.Got a screenshot?
Looked through several local dealers new-V lists and no reference to BD, even on 'In-Transit' vehicles.
My wife has definitely said she wants a ‘whole’ car. The safety features are the only reason we are upgrading at this time.Just say "No" to the ones without blindspot detection.
Unless you just totaled your car, you can wait. What you ordered was one with blindspot detection - so don't let them swap you out. It would be very tough to retrofit it later.
The ones at my local dealer are showing in the description - which may not be accurate - that they have it included.
Yeah, no kidding!My wife has definitely said she wants a ‘whole’ car. The safety features are the only reason we are upgrading at this time.
Supposedly Bosch Electronics is the supplier and they are having problems with supplying the chips. I wouldn’t be surprised that other makes use the same chips.BTW: This is a thing with other car makers as well... I'm seeing reported on VW/Audi
