As soon as I got home on Wednesday, I gained access to the car via the key, got under the bonnet and disconnected the car from the negative battery termina...

Re: MyHonda+ App - What's the Point?

Even worse is when the app is constantly misreporting that the car is unlocked and the windows are open, when it's locked and shut. I'm more concerned for when the reverse happens. At least 90% of the time the app is slow to use and unable to provide updates. Why Honda believe this is acceptable is ...

Re: Manchester to London

@CDot and @Minky92 How did you get on with your journeys? I hope and would assume relatively fuss free, quiet and comfortable.

Re: Charger schedule or Car schedule?

Re: Nissan Ariya

The car was cordoned off, but I did manage to stick my head inside. Looks good. Absolutely enormous though!

Re: Hi from Brisbane, Australia

Definitely the best colour! The air-con is pretty good too, very useful, unlike the app which most likely won't work at all, but honestly I don't think it's a big deal. I'm interested to hear about the EV ownership experience there. So far I've heard it's an utter nightmare.
