Do your headlights shutoff automatic after vehicle is turn off...

I don't use this feature all that much with my Honda Accord.....

When you turn the vehicle back on, the lights come on automatic again.....

Great for those who leave their headlights on.......

Do you have this feature which is quite common in vehicles today and do you use it much...................

patbold says " This is my first vehicle that has it. I like it myself. It doesn't just turn itself off but has a delay. I have some light so I don't have to worry about tripping over something in the dark when I get out of the car. "

I know how you feel patbold since both our Hondas also have this option....we enjoy it very much.....

Never a dead battery ................

This is my first vehicle that has it. I like it myself. It doesn't just turn itself off but has a delay. I have some light so I don't have to worry about tripping over something in the dark when I get out of the car.

davisadm says "don't like it because it makes me lazy and when driving cars without this feature, I may forget to turn them off or on. "

I can understand where you are coming from since my wife's last 2001 Honda Civic didn't have this option and I left her headlights on by mistake and killed her battery....

I don't have to worry about making this same mistake twice since my wife's new 2014 Honda Civic LX has this option........great option to have....
