Icon2 Question for all the M/T CRZ owners

Hey guys. Ive been thinking about the CRZ alot lately. I have an 08 Fit and i would like to have a crz. I have a couple of questions about the manual transmisson.

1. When coasting in neutral, approaching a red light, does the engine shut off?
2. If the engine does shut off, does your A/C get weak?
3. This is an example. Let us say you are dropping off your girlfriend at her house, and you pull into her driveway. You put the car in park. Does the engine cut off? and if it does cut off while you have the A/C on, will you notice it?
4. What if you go to a drive thru, will the engine shut itself down?
5. My fit is rated at 27/34/31combined. I can usually pull in doing all highway around 35. what can i expect from a 6spd crz. would you recommend the automatic? I am getting tired of manuals.

I know it's a lot of ?s but thanks for taking the time to read and answer

1. depends on what speed you are going
2. a/c shuts off once engine shuts off
3. yes you'll notice it
4. if you come to a stop in the drive thru, yes it'll shut off assuming you have enough hybrid battery power
5. roughly 40-45 depending on how you drive. automatic takes the fun out of driving

thanks do you know what at what speed for number 1? Does the engine turn off in econ mode only, or across all three drive modes?

It really depends on how the battery is. Once you're used to the way the computer reacts, you'll be able to coast and the engine will shut off at speeds above 5mph. I rarely drive in anything other than normal, but in normal it does shut off, so i would assume it does in all 3 modes.

I've only noticed the engine shutting off at nearly a complete stop. If you leave your foot on the clutch and keep the car in gear the engine will stay on. If you put the car in neutral the engine will shut off.

Regarding the A/C cutting off: you can force the engine (and by extension, A/C compressor) to stay on (not auto-stop) by taking the climate controls off 'auto', and putting the fan speed up high, temperature settings will also affect it.

There are a few other conditions that control how much the car auto-stops as well, like driving mode, windshield defrost, battery charge like hotboxn said, and more.
