My dissatisfaction started on the day I drove the car off the lot when I heard the engine revving for the first time. I was totally enamored with the electric drive and my driving patterns allowed me to drive almost exclusively in EV mode, so I was able to ignore this. There were minor issues and some tech omissions which I was able to compensate for and I continued to love my Clarity. Then my driving patterns changed. I started regularly driving beyond the EV range and the love affair quickly went south. For the past few months, I have had to mentally calculate just how far I could drive before putting the car in HV mode in order to avoid getting too close to full battery discharge. Even with loads of charge, the car revved and was no longer fun to drive, but I continued to analyze and monitor it and tried to maintain a positive attitude. And then, one cold night when I was climbing a hill with the heater on and the engine revving (with adequate battery charge), the car lost power. I have read the other forum members' experiences, but nothing compares to having it happen in person. I was thankfully able to regain power by turning off the heater and putting the car in EV mode. I got home ok and it never happened again, but I never trusted the car not to do it again, either. So, thanks to all of you for the support and advice, without which I probably would not have lasted as long as I have. I am not sorry that I bought the car, as I have learned so much this past year, but it will be awhile before I venture back into the world of EVs.
