The trends in vehicle paint colors is always interesting.Almost looks blue but its the Sonic Gray Pearl.
new for 2020
Thanks for the reply. I wasn't aware of this feature and at first thought someone bumped into my rear bumper. I know it can be disabled but you have to do it every time you start the car. Sometimes when pulling up to a stop with a lot of cars ahead of you it shuts off and on many times as you approach the stop sign. While its quick to start again I'm worried about the long term impact of this so I disable it. Is the small savings going to cost you in maintenance in the long run? Now if your just sitting in the same spot for several minutes I think it's OK. We should have the option to disable it altogether if we want to per start.I've not experienced this feature in a Honda but I have rented a variety of vehicles that use it. Some are smoother and less intrusive than others but I haven't been impressed by any of them to date. Beyond the actual experience I too would be concerned about the long term impact on the maintenance side of the equation as well as the functionality over the long haul. I suppose if a person knew they would be trading the vehicle off when it had 50K to 75K miles on it the long term issue would be less of a concern as it would become someone else's problem but for any of us that might want to run our vehicles to over 125K miles my guess is there will be an impact.
I understand the need/desire to make all vehicles more efficient but some of the methods currently being used to do so are questionable over the long haul. I still see a considerable number of first or second generation CR-V's and other "simpler" vehicles on the road. I wonder how many of these newer, "more efficient" cars will still be out there plugging along 15 to 20 years from now? Or how much more their owners will have spent to keep them on the road due to all of these enhancements.
my wifes work equinox has it, and it only shuts down for the length of a stoplight change. It will ’restart’ after a set time if you have the brake depressed.Now if your just sitting in the same spot for several minutes I think it's OK. We should have the option to disable it altogether if we want to per start.
There's a hack for the Pilot. Maybe someone will figure out one for the CRV (assuming it's different from the Pilot).
My mother in law and father in law both have auto start stop and they turn it off all the time. I don't understand why but whatever.
sometimes its annoying, sometimes work sometimes not. Especially if you turn the aircon full blast it wont work. You got delayed from stoping to turning it on. You van off this one if you turn it off by pressing the auto shutoff it will turn amber in the dashboard.
Congrats! Love that Sonic Gray color..... beautiful. I wish it were available back in 2018 when I purchased my Touring. Enjoy!
