So, yeah...I got my EX-T in Burgundy Night Pearl on the 30th of Dec. and had already put 1000km on it.
There were mostly good things, but some small issues did popped out, and I'm definitely going to see my dealer soon for some answer.

1- Android Auto....It worked perfectly went I connect it for the first time. But at the second startup, it kinda got confused with BT, and tada~ Android Auto says app isn't working well on my phone and BT won't play music (it recognizes my phone tho). After some re-connection BT got back to work, but now I always have to wait a bit when I startup my car... or even worst, I have to manually refresh my phone's connection.

2-Maintenance A.
As I said, only 1000km on it. I got a "A" yesterday. I would guess maybe it's the oil change after break-in period. But I wasn't expecting Honda to add this reminder....anyway, I'm also going to ask my dealer about this.

3- well,this one is more of a design thing. I live in northern region of Canada, and get a lot of snow, salt, slush things. And I have found those thing get trapped on those door steps quiet easily. a strip of 3M clear protection on those areas should helps a lot. (less chance of paint scratch too :)

4- Highway wobble.....tho I have an EX-T, I'm currently ridding on 16" winter with steel. And at some portion on the highway, me and my gf both felt there was some "ass wobbling" which wasn't felt before with any other car we drove (own/rent). I know its suspension is on the softer side and the higher tire wall isn't helping either, but should I feel it that much? I still haven't check tire pressure yet tho. I used to ride between 35- 40 psi, I think dealer would have put about 32psi, is this the reason? I'll see if there is a difference on my next trip back to hometown.

Now, some GOODs :)

1-MPG... I can get about 6l/100km while doing pure highway at 110km/h. and an average of 8l/100km combined 50/50 (always on ECON)

2-ECON sure is slow, but when putted in "S", I do get that smile I paid for, not regretting my decision at all. 2.0 would never give me that pull when there're 5 peoples in the car and a trunk full of groceries. (Mazda3 would have been screaming at 4k and still not giving a good acceleration).

3-Honda Sensing....yes, it works. I still haven't got the chance to use that auto-emergency breaking system, otherwise I appreciate what Honda sensing is doing for me. Especially on highway.

4-Quietness, it does roll quieter than my older 2010 mazda3.

....
I hope those software problems could get fixed soon by some firmware update.
I will get back to this log after seeing my dealer in a few weeks (I live 3h away from my hometown...so... :p)

When have you felt the Honda Sensing kick in? The snow and salt can be annoying but you'll have those problems on a lot of vehicles. The joys of being Canadian :D

I haven't had any problem with it yet. But, yeah, I know what you mean. My friend's car has that problem and he couldn't even turn its "auto distance" thing off... (bmw 5 series)

Why do you keep the psi that high? :surprise:
Is between 35-40 too high? I thought normal pressure would be around 32-35 and since I always had some issues with air leaking I tend to leave it a little above 35.... pls teach me about this

So, for connectivity problems ... a temporary solution would be to reset your radio head unit, by press and holding power button.
restart should take 2-4 mins and BT connection would go back to normal. My settings were kept, so it's not a factory reset.
I was able to delete my phone from BT list and re-add it and also add my gf's phone to it. So long, it's working ok... but I haven't try Android Auto yet.

I still have prob understanding how to set BT connected device priorities. Since we have two phone in car, music and phone should be able to set separately, but those buttons are often not available (darken)...
I'm kinda missing that old fashion trouble-free AUX port...lol
