8 fuel octane 87,89,91,92,93 used? - 87
9 fuel brand mostly used or not used? nothing with deliberate regularitiy
10 Has any recalls been performed? - not to my knowledge - but car's been in for service frequently for last year and half....
11 Any previous problems? if not 1st owner please put unknown - brakes grunting after first acceleration of day, jerking started around 13,500 miles, engine light coming on, battery light coming on, engine failing, battery failing to recharge....A/C and heat not working, and always getting around 41 mpg - no matter how/where I drove car.
12 What has been replaced to fix the jerky problem? EGR valve - replaced at 22,400 - eliminated noticable occurances - for 3 months
13 Follow up on ?10 did it fix the problem and how many miles since then? Under 200 miles since then - it's starting again
14 Dealership used? Started at Airport Marina Honda, then went to Culver City Honda - questioned Santa Monica Honda, back to Airport - where different tech was kind enough to help me - dispite poorly compensated by Honda - for warranty work that I represent.
15 Any help from the dealer? Yes or no NO help from dealers - I came in with paperwork - explaining EGR valve - and listing service bulletins - they said they'd never heard of anything I listed as potential problem.

2-CVT
3-A/C
4-70,000 was getting around 50MPG
5-74,000 now around 55-56
6-stock
7-Modile1
8-87 sometimes 93 about every 3 months
9-cheapest
10-emissions recall (no impact from it)
11-no problems other than the front brakes clicking (fixed for some time now)
12-EGR valve and 12 volt battery
13-EGR valve fixed it for around 500miles, then it came back but not as bad. Odd as it may seem the 12 volt battery has had the most impact; it has also helped increase the state of charge on the HV pack.
14-Self done
15-Dealership provided helpful advice (Honda Cars of Columbia)
16-Jason McCarthy
17-no home e-mail address just got filled with too much junk
18-52.1 and should now start climbing again
19-everywhere from 70 to 80, but mostly around 75
20-40% city / 60% highway
21-I first adjusted the valves around 50K and have touched them up since

Hope all this helps, I will let ya'll know if this miracle 12 volt battery replacement lasts.
