    Yes, after researching and waiting for the right time I final got my clarity. I got the touring model and of course the car battery was completely dead. I am charging the car but other than that and reading the manual what should I do?

    Connect the car to the HondaLink app but you might have to wait a few days until after the dealership has submitted the paperwork to the American Honda before you can activate.

    You need to make sure the dealer has and submits your correct and valid email address. This is needed for registration with HondaLink. Our local dealer appears to make up and submit a dummy email address with the paperwork. This made it impossible to sign up for HondaLink after our February purchase. The issue had to go fairly high up in the Honda food chain to get the issue corrected and took over a month to get done. What finally got Honda moving was pointing out that a HondaLink connection was an advertised feature of the Clarity and that the car was returnable if HondaLink could not be established due to the dealers actions.

    Check your tire pressure. Mine were at 50 psi. The decal on the door says 36psi cold.
    Also read up on safe charging practices. The Honda owners website has a PDF downloadable owners manual. I would also check into the proper use of the tire repair kit/compressor because you have no spare. I also carry a plug kit for temporary tire repair. Don't be too aggressive on the accelerator pedal for the first 600 miles or so. I also would run the ice (gas engine) during break-in period by using hv (hybrid) mode.

    My tire pressure was 48 psi. I also cleaned all glass with a magic eraser and 409 cleaner. then with Meguiar's glass cleaner.
    I also used a tip from a post here and used 303 Protectant rather than Armor all. Looks fantastic, not too shinny.

    Is there a display in the car that shows tire pressure?

    I agree with JDonalds, drive and enjoy it.

  20. Yes, broken linke. Try this one...

    Yes I saw those caps, but don't know if I want that cost. :-(

    I'm wondering how low the tire pressure has to be before the TPMS triggers? Somehow, I love to *test* it. Maybe intentially deflate a tire to 30 lbs?

    Once someone discovers the threshold for TPMS triggering, we could probably back into what the fuel economy 'cost' is for running a suboptimal but not TPMS-triggering level. I'm sure those who think it is important to only carry around 10 lbs of liquid energy instead of a full tank would need to know this.
