  2. I left Honda for Chevrolet and I paid the price

    New Member Introductions
    and I'm in Thailand. Chevrolet SUCKS. I had a little Honda City here that gave me 0 issues. WE wanted something bigger so we went with the Chevy Cruze. Gave up our little Honda for it. Worst decision I ever made. Not only does the Chevy Cruze suck, but the service is atrocious. Cruze was fine...

    Drivetrain Problems
    I bought a new 2012 Honda Civic LX and sometimes when waiting at a light or turning into a parking lot the gas pedal does not work at all for approx. 2 or 3 seconds. It happens when I am making a U-turn mostly. I took it in and the Honda dealer ship said they can't duplicate it so I know I am...

  13. Low fuel warning light

    Fuel/ Mpg Discussion
    Since I'm also monitoring fuel economy with a Scanguage II (ScanGauge - Trip Computer + Digital Gauges + ScanTools), I thought some people might be interested in knowing how much fuel is left in the tank when the low fuel warning light comes on. I've gone thought three tanks so far, and it's...
