I think the HX has power windows and many have a/c...but none have four doors! I'll look for that thread I'd love to see how your MPG economy runs go.
You are right, cruise isn't very efficient but sure is nice on long trips.

Also yes, the HX does have power windows and can have a/c but no 4 doors.

Alright ive been trying to research a bit about my car, if any other hx owner of Honda owner can clarify the markings on my car it would be much appreciated.

From what I can tell the hx had a very limited production run in 1996, or my car was one of the first with a manual transmission as I can only find references to cvt models in car and driver tests

Under side of the hood




On my drivers side rear lower control arm



No idea what the A stands for, it is one the gas tank and rear shocks and B is on the front shocks*

Holy undercoating! LOL, that craps heavy!

This should help your car search. Basically find a dealer link in google and replace the vin number in the dealer link with the vin of the vehicle you want to check

That hasn't worked for me in a long time. I'm pretty sure they closed that loophole.

It looks like only a few dealers use it still, so it may be gone quickly

I would actually remove those posts, someone might be lurking forums for just that sort of info
