    Woohoo!
    AnthonyW wins the Clarity Pulitzer Prize for reporting this first.
    And kudos to everyone who took the time to make a ticket with Honda.

    I like that they admit it's their error and note that the Sales people should be aware of it (yeah - they don't even charge the cars before demos).

    This is good news, my wife and I were really perplexed how such a simple calculation could be overlooked. Both being engineers we were wondering how on earth this could get pass quality control. Honestly probably needed to meet a hard deadline and the engineers just thought we will fix it in rev 1 to get it out the door.

    OMG - great job @AnthonyW - any chance you can get them to fix the SiriusXM disruption when you use the pre-climate control on your Hondalink or the fob (where you lose control of SiriusXM after pre-cooling or pre-heating)?

    I may have missed it somewhere - has anyone gotten a firm answer on how we will get these (non-navigation/infotainment) firmware updates?

    I'm betting these are dealer installed only - not OTA - too much risk of screwing something else up (you know, like a Microsoft Windows 10 update that busts something else while fixing a minor issue).

    Agreed - bricking your smartphone or notebook sucks but bricking your car would take it to a whole new level.

    May 2018....That's 5 MONTHS late! They should be aware of this as soon as the first fill up happens, either on their test course or by early customers.

    Still waiting for that to happen with our 2015 Model S, it's updated regularly OTA. I don't stay awake nights thinking about it, but it's always a consideration. The fail-safe is that the owner can determine whether or not to begin the update process. I'm sure we're not the only ones who get the notification and then wait a few days to see if the sky falls before pressing update.

    Awesome, this was an irritation and had to rely on gas bars alone.

    I encountered this a couple days ago. Glad to see it's a known issue, I guess, and not some fluke thing I'm seeing. Has anyone reported this to Honda? What's the best way to report something like this to hopefully get a fix.

    I did, and they sent me to the dealer. But they first wouldn't let me show a tech because I needed a separate appointment, and when I dropped it off they could not reproduce the problem...
