  1. Farewell and Thanks, It's been a pleasure.

    Well, today was the day. After a lot of reflection and considerable test driving I have, after 40 years, left the Civic Touring Coupe and the Fit behind. Traded today for a CRV EX-L in Platinum White Pearl. The Civic's 40 profile tires and harsh ride finally got to my 73 year-old back. My wife...
  2. Tinting In Pennsylvania, What's Your Experience?

    Living in Pa, would really like at least a light tint on my Civic Coupe (& our Fit too). If you live here it's illegal as far as I can tell on most cars unless you have a medical exemption. So, fellow Pennsylvanians, what's your experience? Have you done it? Gotten away with it? What % have...
  3. Very Expensive Trip To The Eye Doctor

    Well, had a very expensive trip yesterday, went to my Opthalmologist for a eye exam, during which he dilated my pupils. Driving home in my 19 Civic Coupe Touring with somewhat blurry vision, I misjudged a turn and REALLY curbed my right front rim, also scratched the lower edge of the front...
  4. 93 Octane push by Shell & Exxon/Mobil

    Have noticed lately at my local Shell dealer, as well as Exxon/Mobil, some rather aggressive advertising for their Premium fuel, indicating that it's better for your engine, causes less friction, higher mileage and, of course, cleaner. I guess conventional wisdom says that an engine set up to...
  5. Is it possible to roll up the Windows without starting the engine?

    Read the book, can't figure out a way to raise the windows without turning the engine on other than using the key in the fob. I have a fob cover that makes getting the key out a PITA, any other way? When we had "ignition keys" the windows worked in the "acc" position, now w/PB starting, the acc...
  6. Leather Care - What Works Best?

    Ok, we now have 2 cars with black leather seats, Civic & Fit. What's your recommendation for a good, simple product to keep the seats in good condition? I've used a lot of Griot's products in the past, tried the 3-In-One Leather care, kinda sucks, disappointing considering how well their stuff...
  7. Updating the Garmin Nav Maps?

    2019 Civic Touring, I have the latest Garmin map updates on a USB stick. I know the usual update procedure is to select the upload from the menu, connect the USB, and let the car run for the 2-3 hours it takes to update. My question is: instead of letting the car idle in a well-ventilated area...
  8. Question for the Amzoil guys?

    Ok, question ( actually more than one) After years of using Mobil1 & Mobil1 filters, I'm taking a serious look at Amzoil, specifically the Signature Series 0W-20 , the OEM 0W-20 and the Amzoil filter. My concern is that the Signature Series is not API Certified, the OEM does have the API...
  9. Wrong Forum, but need some Assistance

    Fully aware that this is a 10th gen forum, however, I'm looking for some information for a friend who has a 2015 SI sedan. He's looking for the correct Honda part numbers for the JDM red H badges (front & rear) for his car, local dealer can order if he has the #'s. Appreciate any help with this.
  10. New Honda Oil Filter?

  11. Factory Navigation (Garmin) Updates

    Recently purchased a 19 Civic Touring Coupe, has the integrated Garmin Navigation. Used a dash-top Garmin for about 5 years, always got notifications on my computer when Software/map updates were available & updated 3-4 times a year. With the built-in Navigation, how does the update process...
  12. Is it my imagination?

    Went from a 2016 EX-L Coupe to a 2019 Touring Coupe, had it about a month, now at 1500 miles. I don't know (Obviously can't make a direct comparison) but the 19 seems significantly quieter, less engine noise, road noise, less wind noise. Did Honda add more insulation or make some changes with...
  13. 2019 Civic Touring Coupe tires

    I'm taking delivery of a 2019 Touring Coupe on Monday, when I test drove it last week, noticed it came with Continental 235/40/18 ProContacts ? I have not had positive experiences with Continental tires in the past, so for a nominal price the dealer offered to change them out for Michelins. Got...
  14. HondaCare pricing

    On a 2019 Civic Touring Coupe (new) what is a fair price for the 100k/7-year HondaCare?, The "finance guy" who I took an immediate dislike to, says he'll give me a break @$1600+tax, I think that's high, what should I offer? I was expecting $12-1300, are my expectations unreasonable? Thanks Phil

  17. Maintainance for us with OCD

    As a retired Biomedical Technician, due to the nature of maintaining Life-support equipment, I'm (admittedly) a bit OCD about maintenance. As a long- time Honda owner, and blessed with a Honda dealership that does excellent work (have friends there) that I trust, I am trying to determine a...
