HONDA FIT Test drove Yaris sedan 5spd Fit base auto Civic LX 2dr 5spd

First off...Ive driven the Fit Sport 5 spd a couple times already. There wasnt any in stock at any of the dealers though. Today I was considering trading in one of my cars. Heres my thoughts on each -07 Toyota Yaris sedan 5 spd - almost no options only the All Weather Package which was priced 133XX. It was the only one on the lot and the salesman was nice but not pushy. He asked if I wanted to drive

didnt help) unlike the Yaris which is able to cruise at 160kmhr on a good day. Interestingly the Fit felt as nimble as my slammed 98 civic at low speeds but when the going gets tough its quite obvious the Fit aided by its electronics is a poser while the old civic is the real deal (granted even a similarly tweak Yaris would not be able to match my old civics handling). However the fact that honda

HONDA CIVIC Brake Switch Recall

I was on Owner Link the other day and I always check the recalls and found a safety recall on my 2007 hybrid. I found it interesting that its dated in September 2007 but I never received notice in the mail about it. Maybe the mail is just slow. Anyway I just got back from the dealer where they replaced the brake switch under warranty. They also checked my tire wear when I inquired about the camber

HONDA CIVIC VIII 2010 Honda Civic runs cold in winter

My 2010 civic has a digital water temperature gauge. The gauge does not display numbers rather it has a LCD bar graph. During the spring summer and fall the gauge displays 9 bars when the engine is fully heated which is just shy of the halfway mark on the gauge. In temperatures below 32 degrees Fahrenheit the gauge only rises to 4 to 7 bars even when the car has been driven for over 15 minutes. An

My 2010 Si has been run in temps as low as -36C and my temp gauge goes up slowly but it goes up. I drive for 30 minutes to get to work and on the really cold days ( see temp above) it takes about 20 mins for the car to reach full operating temperature. Try shifting at 3K until the second bar shows up then bump your shift point to between 4 and 5K. It allows the engine oil to heat up at a steady rate

Hi 97emsedan Radiator cap and coolant are original as shipped from factory. My other two hondas a Pilot and CRV do not have this issue of taking 30 minutes to completely warm up on cold days. After about 5 minutes their temp gauge is at full normal temp. While on those same cold days my civic will never reach full temp even after 30 minutes. It just seems odd to me.

HONDA CIVIC Timing Beltchain Intervals

Hey Guys I Received Your Comments About My Mpgs. Thank You I Am Now Getting 47 Around Town. I Am Very Happy With That. I Can Not Wait To Take It Out On A Long Road Trip. Now For The Question. What Is The Interval For The Timing Beltchain On The Hch2 I Could Not Find The Information Anywhere. My Vw Tdi 06 The Info. Was All Over The Place Help

I just appreciate the sterling tips Yes that list does look expensive with most requiring cylinder head removal. As far as just getting the valve cover off getting a wrench on the end of the drive shaft (at the wheel well) and cranking the engine through the 4 positions and inspection with feeler gauge (adjust only as needed) I found that took a lesuirely 2 hours at most at least with our older hondas

HONDA CIVIC third gear issue official discussion thread (3rd grind etc) - INCLUDES ACTUAL TSB from HONDA

TSB from honda released 41208 regarding this freakin issue. my personal experience with this fix is toward the bottom of page 3. long story short the fix is legit and my car is fine now. TSB HERE I have made this to compile what has been said so far and to encourage any and all info to be in ONE thread. Alot of users continue to start threads rehashing the same or similar information same questions

trying. callgo to different dealerships. see who knows a service writer or tech etc. that is just how it works. its always been like that and most likely it always will. do you know what would happen if the car companies had to order recalls for every service problem andor believe the owner when it came down to whether or not the car was doing something that is specifically detailed in a TSB our hondas

to try and do thought is change my shift back to the stock hence its lighter and you can have a little more feel when shifting gears other than having my circuit hero being a heavily weighted having shifting gears with out forcing it.. well see what happens hopefully it all works out.. hmm im not entirely sure i understand your post however... i can suggest that you try to contact your area honda

HONDA CIVIC Driving related question...

With all the talk over the years of the 06 block cracking issue I just have a question. Im one of those drivers that doesnt really beat up on my car in my daily driving. Car is completely stock execpt for a K&N drop in filter.Its an EX sedan with a manual. Just had tranny rebuilt and new Exedy clutch installed. Will shifting a rpm higher than 4k make my block more prone to cracking Has 150k on original motortranny.

shifting in the higher RPM range will not crack the block. Just dont let it live up there often. If honda didnt want you to rev up there they wouldnt let the engine go that high.

HONDA CIVIC 2009 SI - clunky shifts

Hey guys I apologize if this is a double post as I have been gone for a while and now changing cars I am not up to date on the new models and their transmissions. So my shifts in my 2009 4dr SI (80000kms) are clunky. It sort of feels like I am forcing it into gear like it doesnt naturally go smooth seamlessly especially from 1st to 2nd and I notice it sometimes from 4th to 5th and 5th to 6th. I am

I used 90w Amsoil this summer and a lot of my hard shifting went away. Granted 90w oil in the cold months sucks. My trans hates life below 10deg F till its warmed up.

My trans hates life below 10deg F till its warmed up. 90W is nowhere near correct for that transmission. OP simple things first. Are you sure they used honda MTF and not gear oil or motor oil when they changed your fluid 5000 km ago Using motor oil or thick

Also I heard a lot people that had similar problems with how it felt weird shifting say that the hybrid shifter does a world of difference and the gears go in like butter. Its a much better shifter then stock that is for sure...

HONDA CIVIC Civic D15B 3 stage Vtec hesitant on low rpm.Help..

Hello everybody.Well i am having a serious problem with my car since i bought it 6 months ago.The car seems hesitantshaky taking off - particularly noticeable in 1st2nd3rd gears - Now I know she runs in 12Valve mode at low revs but even with this I think it should be smootherstronger taking off... Things changed and verified with no result Cam timing is aligned to marks. Ignition timing is set at 16

I remember that on mine if Im stepping on it in first gear to 7500 rpms and shift to second gear is like I was starting on a long gear it feels like if I was shifting from first gear to third I dont know if it has to do with the gear ratio or the stupid lost of power some where lol.

HONDA CIVIC Can someone help me review im still new. 96 Civic CX.

Hi I just bought honda civic cx 96. i wanna put some stuff to it but im not sure whether its good or not. i have couple links that im looking at. can you guys give me info about it. thank you brakepads Amazon.com Akebono ACT273 ProACT Ultra-Premium Ceramic Brake Pad Set Automotive Amazon.com Akebono ACT273 ProACT Ultra-Premium Ceramic Brake Pad Set Automotive short shifter SKUNK2 Dual Bend Short Shifter

The Akebono pads are nice daily driver pads. Check pricing for those on rockauto...and while youre at it check their rotorpad packages. They have powerstop Evo pads...which work great too. Theyre very similar to the Akebono Ceramic. The Skunk2 short throw is the only one I actually like because its made from steel AND not overly short. So shifting is still smooth. Skip the Yonaka catback. Save a little

HONDA CIVIC auto trans slips to false neutral when warm--torque converter or sensor

first and foremost i did a pretty extensive search found nothing conclusive. 98 civic dx 160k auto never has had any mods or overhauls. i bought it with the bad trans from a friend of mine with the intent of converting it to a manual but if i do that my POS 94 wont have a transmission (it runs but the engine has a warped head) and it will be a much bigger pain in the to sell. SO. when you start it

Quote the speedometer doesnt work. it quit working about a year ago. That would suggest that the vehicle speed sensor has had it - full explanation here here . Id guess that this is consistent with there being something seriously and fundamentally wrong with your gearbox as others have explained above and that this problem essentially took the speed sensor with it. I had an occasional fluctuating speedometer

MERCEDES BENZ SLK R170 Guys...i barely able to passed a little Honda civic with my Clk 430.................................

br when we both enter on to the freeway and i FLOORED IT It because the damn so called Full Logic driver adapt transmission picked 3th gears (felt like it) at 15 mph rather 1st gear when i foored it it yesterday. This happen alot in an emergency when i need to floor it Mercedes should seriously need to re-tune the software that controll the transmission. I guess for now i need to get use to shift manual.

br me a little more time to get used to the side way shifting instead of the common sense up and down in most car or steering columm shifting left hand(down shift)and right hand (up shift). I really like the manual it kick it really quick. Now my only problem is watching the RPM so i wont redline...lol.

HONDA CIVIC Question about specific Exedy clutch kit

I installed the HCK1002 kit. Before I say anything else does anyone else have this kit installed in a 06 ex sedan

Main thing is just seems like its got sorta jerky shifting is the best I can describe it. Could it be my motor mounts maybe The one back by the tranny was replaced late last year.

HONDA CIVIC VIII 06 HCH MPG -- test results

Since this has been discussed in various threads I thought Id start a new one here for the 06 HCH mpg. Filled my new 06 HCH up once at the time it said 43.4 for the fillup. Am now on my 2nd tank of gas. My mileage has been as low as the low 30s when doing start-and-stop street driving. However it goes higher on the fwy. Seeing someone post that she got in the 50s for highway I thought Id try an

Ive filled my 06 HCH tank six times now and the lowest MPG I had for one tank when I purposely didnt try to maximize milage was 46. My best tank was 52 MPG MPG and the others all being around 48-49 MPG. I drive 80% highway in the LAOC area during regular commute times. I have found that I can coax higher MPG numbers if I constantly try to adjust and anticipate for traffic conditions road incline etc.

HONDA CIVIC VIII HCH 06 Question

The gearshift has P R N D S and L. What are the S and L gears If its CVT I cant understand how there is a low gear. The Prius equivalent is B where the brake is applied. ------------------------------------------------------------- 06 Prius v. 06 HCH

My 2003 HCH also has the PRNDSL positions on the transmission. Remember almost everything you do do in the cab talks to the computer Accelerator brake...and shifter. Putting it in S or L simply tells the computer to stop shifting at a certain (lower) level). I can testify the S and L work well in downhill mountain driving saving the brakes and in snow driving.

HONDA CIVIC VII 05 HCH auto stop wont restart

On several occasions our 05 HCH has failed to restart after entering auto stop mode. When this happens I try shifting into first a couple of times and nothing happens then I try the start position on the ignition switch - nothing happens. The only correction is to turn the car off for 5 seconds then restart it. Im interested in hearing if any others have had similar difficulty

HONDA CIVIC Way too hiigh idle (engine full warmed)

For the last 34 days weve been having the intermittent experience of abnormally high idle. This is with the car full warmed up. Come to a stop usually all is ok it either idles normally or Auto Stops. But several times the rpm goes through the roof Up around 3000. shifting to neutral and it jumps another 400500. A firm foot on the brake pedal is required... I will call the dealership on Monday but in the interim any one experience this Any ideas

HONDA CIVIC Going up Hills - too low of revs

Hi I have a honda civic hybrid 2005 and the low revs are driving me crazy. If there is even the slightest hill it makes like a low rev sound like it is trying to get enough power to go up the hill. This happens either when it does the economy mode where it is off then I press the gas pedal or in regular mode from a stop (engine not off). I dont know car lingo but maybe it is a sound from the transmission

On the uphills is it like its not down shifting Is it like rattling bolts in a tin can At a stop is it like a low idle or is it like a slight engine rev My guess is that it may be a timing issue or an idle speed issue.

HONDA CIVIC my new experience

I have had my civic hybrid 2 weeks and 1 day. It has me a little confused. I got up to 61 mpg on the hwy at 60 mph. I travel 61 miles one way to work. It doesnt seem to be consistent on the same road at the same speed. I almost always use crusie control. The car doesnt seem to know when it needs more power because it still tells you to shift up. Im not disppointed at all. I just need my own adjustment

You get a 2000 Federal tax deduction if you put the car in service in calendar year 2004. I dont know about any NY deductions (I live in CA and I dont get one for my HCH). I cant speak to the shifting thing since I have an automatic.

As far as the shifting thing and mileage thing goes you have to consider the weather. Specifically the condition of the air that the car is driving through. The cars computer is designed to calculate the best mix of air and fuel based on several different sources of information. The cars speed the rpms of the engine what gear the car is in and the position of the gas pedal (throttle) are some of the

HONDA CIVIC driving tips to optimize MPG

I just bought a 2007 HCH with nav and would like to understand any special tips or methods people have to optimize the MPG. I commute about 50 miles daily 40% back roads 40% highway 20% city Thanks for any tips

Some ideas in no particular order 1. Raise your tire pressures. Keep under the max on the tire sidewall and inflate the fronts a bit more than the rear for the extra weight. Maybe 38 front 36 rear. The ride will be rougher so adjust to your tastes. 2. Someone above mentioned cruise control. Ive found it detrimental to mileage to let the cruise control set my speed I prefer to let speed fall off a bit

HONDA CIVIC Cold weather experience

I am buying a brand new car shortly and an looking for advice. I have it down to either a 2008 honda civic or a 2008 honda civic Hybrid. I live in Winnipeg Canada and have some concerns regarding a hybrid in the cold winter months. I would qualify for 4000 in rebates from my Provincial & Federal Government which makes the price difference almost nill but have concerns about using the hybrid at -30. Anyone with experience Thanks in advance

A 10 to 15 minutes commute is not long enough for the engine to warm up especially if the front grille is not blocked. So blocking it during the cold days will do wonders. My daily commute is also roughly 15-20 minutes as well but I also avoid harsh accelerations especially when it is cold and that means I try to always keep my RPMS below 2000 when possible. Gliding the car is also key to great fuel

HONDA CIVIC Verifying HCH is working correctly

Im at the dealer now because I noticed that my HCH does not seem to shift automatically when accelerating. No CVT lights etc. But something doesnt seem right about a fuel efficient vehicle taking me to 6000 rpms withouth shifting - and Im not trying to go up a big hill or pass a truck on the highway Anybody else have that The service managers says Ill have one of my guys drive it. But without any codes

NISSAN Document Shifting issues and RPM hanging

I spoke with Nissan Consumer Affairs and they said that the only way we are likely to see any sort of fix for the rough shifting on the manual tranny and the hanging RPM issue is if enough owners complain. So heres your chance Call 1-800-NISSAN1 (1-800-647-7261) - select option 7 to speak to a rep - then select option 3 for warranty issues (or 4 for everything else.) Once you get a human on the phone

KIA RIO I DC C123 Should I Buy This Hard Shifting 2001 Rio

Hi folks - just signed up to the forum here. Am considering buying a 2001 Kia Rio that appears in excellent condition with only 74K miles. Plain jane version with automatic. Only problem I can see with the car is it sometimes shifts pretty hard from first to second - you can definitely feel it one time it even kind of jerked me. If you baby it the hard shift lessens. Other times not as noticeable.

a car with no AC is WORTHLESS seriously that car is worth 1500 retail even an 04 ac delete car here is selling for 2200.

JEEP WRANGLER down shifting for a stop light

How do you go from say 4th gear to a stop at a stop light I usually immediately go to neutral and then brake. Does anyone downshift to 32 and then stop I read that some think it is better to wear the brakes rather than wear the tranny but I am wondering as I just had to replace the clutch after 110k on my first manual tranny. Thanks no joking please just a question.

MAZDA 6 I GG GY Clutch letoff shifting into 1st 2004 wagon V6 MTX

Hi guys I didnt find any problems like mine using the search. Anyways i bought a used 2004 Mazda6 w 59000 miles. Its a V6 wagon with a 5 speed manual transmission. Everything about the car is flawless i just find shifting the car into first kind of nerve racking. From a stoplight or any stopped situation where i shift into first and let off the clutch in gear and start slowly gassing it kinda coasts

and at about 1500rpm...floor it. If the clutch is ok the car will accelerate very slowly as it should until the rpms rise higher into the powerband. If the clutch is bad the rpms will rise much faster than they should in relation to vehicle speed...thus a slipping clutch which needs replacement. In 4th gear at 1500 rpms the car accelerates slowly (normally). Then again if i did this in my 1997 honda

is a really nice car in a lot of ways but it has some serious flaws too. On paper you can make any car sound better than any other car. For example my Yaris gets better mileage has more ground clearance and more trunk space than a Mercedes SL500 Hey Id be happy if these reviews kept people from buying the Yaris... then our cars will be more unique. If you want to be like everyone else buy a civic.
