Are you a current or recent car shopper who bought an EV and then installed solar – or who had solar already, making the decision to go electric easier?
Are you a recent EV buyer (past 3 months) as a result of manufacturer incentives and dealer discounts on these vehicles, including year-end deals? Were you convinced to buy an EV after finding a good end-of-year deal, or due to uncertainty around which EVs will no longer qualify for full/partial EV tax credits in 2024?

I just purchased it and it did not come with an owners manual. I put in 3.5 qts. and the dipstick shows its full, is that all it holds?

    My 2001 Civic holds 3.4 qts. I realize there might be a difference between the 2000 and 2001, bit I suspect that's not the case.

    Thanks for the feedback, I drained out over 4 qts. , I suspect the dealer had overfilled it, (bought it from a Nissan dealer) and did not know the correct amount to put in. Anyway, there's Amsoil in it now, next I'm changing the auto trans fluid and filter. Don

    Mine has the D16Y7 (plain ole 4 banger non V-TEC) engine and the docs say 3.6 quarts with filter, 3.3 quarts without. D16Y5 & Y8s 3.3 with filter, 3.0 without. The engine & transmission type is stamped on the block and is part of the VIN (when decoded) To get the most from your car RTFM (read the fine manual) hey I could be in marketing. Happy New Year !
