You can't imagine how happy I'm to read the quote below:
Finally, Honda has fixed the weird behavior where the engine would re-fire from Idle Stop after shifting into park. It was really annoying pulling into a parking space, having the engine shut off just as you stop, and then restart as you shift it into "P". Now it stays off for a more "intuitive driving experience".


Now I just hope Honda does that for every single car they have in the lineup, because that's been a true nightmare for every model I've sampled since the 2nd gen Insight. To the point that sometimes I just switch the engine off before putting it into P when reaching destination (just so that I don't have to hear it come alive when parking...).


PS: I've always wondered about the reason for it (being emissions, engine longevity, whatever), but never accepted whatever it was as an excuse (The Toyotas I know have never had such problem), specially for hybrids (because going around on the motor only to fire up the engine when you park is unforgiveable).
