I purchased the HRV EX this weekend. Went to pick it up yesterday- all was great! Drove last night and realized the headlights are not coming on- on the auto setting or using the on mode. High beams work as do the fog lights..


Anyone else experiencing this issue?

How are you liking the HRV otherwise? I'm really thirsty for input from people who've been driving it a few days. Can't wait to hear the experience reports over the next few weeks. They might sway me to buy or not buy the HRV.

Otherwise I'm loving it. I opted for the mid model because of the sun roof, heated seats, and digital dash. Had no problem connecting my iPhone to the Bluetooth either. Averaging 34.7 mpg at this point between highway last night and through town today.

Previously I drove a Jeep Liberty and had no issue transitioning. I opted for the $299 package to cover the interior and exterior for stains, scratches etc and the car looks very sharp with their protectant on it!

34.7, is that with CVT 2WD ?

So, besides not being able to drive at night, whatcha think?

Other than that, how was the play, Mrs. Lincoln?

Love it so far!

Like I said, I opted for this model for the sun roof, heated seats and digital display. The dash board looks very sharp. I got the AWD CVT in Black with black interior. I transitioned from a Jeep Liberty but have been driving a Subaru Crosstrek often as my girlfriend owns one. The HRV is much roomier than the crosstrek in my opinion and I feel it drives smoother. Tires ride loud but not a big deal. Iphone hooked up to bluetooth with no issues and I made a call this morning from the car with perfect clarity, no issue on either end!

In the system you can see combined MPG or recent trip MPG. I drive for work a little bit but this morning prior to leaving for work the screen registered that I had gotten around 30.7 MPG for my trip home on the highway last night pretty simple highway about 2 hours travel time going around 70-75.

Thats what they are there for. What did they say about it?

Did not call roadside. Spoke to the dealer and service department and they would like me to come back in. I explained how unrealistic this was. Theyre currently sitting in the exact car at their lot trying to figure things out...

Could it be a fuse? I know several fuses are removed for shipping the car and the dealer is supposed to replace them before customer takes delivery. Perhaps they forgot in this case? Or just missed one?

Where abouts you located?

So the Honda dealer you purchased from is 2 1/2 hours away and the the nearest one????
