comment Slower Engine Start When “Cold”
Very interesting answer, and one that definitely makes sense based on my admittedly limited knowledge of the fuel system. Do you know if this is a problem, short or long-term, that should be fixed? Aside from the fact that it probably wears out the starter faster than it would if fuel pressure were always maintained. And for the record, my fuel pressure regulator and fuel pump are OEM, never been serviced. I've only had oil, filter, and tire related service on this particular car so far.

Sure, I could probably try this. What made you suspect the battery, though? The engine sounds fine when it cranks up, and I drive my car for long distances every day back and forth to work so that should be enough to keep the battery charged. The little ~1 second hiccup is what concerns me... if it's the battery struggling to provide enough juice, wouldn't that make it sound like a crying baby when cranking (and crank slower)? I've heard a car trying to start on a dead battery before and it doesn't sound anything like that.

My spare is just that -- a spare, emergency tire -- it's not meant for continuous use. It definitely isn't the same model of tire as the original 4.

Good info, but I never do anything but use the car on reasonably well-maintained, legal, public asphalt roads to get from point A to point B. I usually go the speed limit or just a few mph over.

comment Engine revs up when braking
Yes, I think the 2012 Civic does have some form of engine braking and that may be the reason. So it's a safety feature because I can slow down extremely fast, even going down an incline, if needed -- right? That's fine and dandy, but I go down a very steep incline (steep enough to make my ears pop) at about 60 mph every day on the way home from work, and the incline is a very flat paved road (nowhere near any cliffs, thankfully) about 2 miles long. I often have to brake because people often slow down to merge rather than speed up, and there's an exit at the bottom of the hill.
