Jocko, what are your suspicions exactly?
Basically, that I wouldn't have one in a gift. I have never driven one or been in a car with one, but from what I have read and seen on the net, it is not something I'd like on a car. Fine for a milling machine.
For me a hydraulic automatic transmission with torque converter, Borg Warner style, is the way to go.

There's a 53 plate Corsa with "This car is worth 2000" graphics on a stand at the Vauxhall dealer I regularly pass; as said by others if the money is coming from above then maybe the dealer can be a little more flexible but these schemes are certainly not a true discount.

I do remember the glut of 2008 BMW 520d that were offered for less than 20k after being parked in an airfield for nearly a year.  My car leasing neighbour bought over 50 of them.

Quite interested to see what price ex-lease vehicles are fetching at Manheim / BCA, after 12 years of planning this may be the year I replace the Jazz.

When I started driving, in 1965, petrol at our local garages (no supermarkets then) was 4/4d a gallon (0.047/litre).
We had 3 garages and a filling station selling petrol, in a small town of 5500 people. Now their nearest one is 6 miles away!

Check the wiring on the OBD socket.  The other systems can be read/written but on a different pair of wires on the data link connector.  Easiest method is to buy Honda HDS copy like this.

OBDII only carries minimum basic information.

I recall that as part of my job, I had to regularly travel from our Landrover plant in Solihull, down to our satellite plant in Cardiff, a round trip of roughly 220 miles. At the time the Rangerover had a 18 gallon fuel tank and if we pushed it hard, we could not get there and back, without a top up. Mind you if I remember correctly, fuel was around 4 gallons to 1, a might different to today!

I hope they give me a CVT Jazz. May shift, or confirm, my suspicions about CVT gearboxes.

I used to use the long screwdriver to just below the ear. I think the mechanics stethoscope was a later idea.

I had a Triumph 2.5 PI which had iffy injectors. When I sold it I told the guy that I had to be honest and that I had had 16 mpg. He said that they could be thirsty. What I didn't tell him was 16 mpg was the best I had ever achieved, with 12 being nearer the average and once even 8 mpg!
I used to change the plugs on a daily basis.

All this only applies to men of course. If you are a woman you remember everything, forget nothing and never let him forget it.

You can say that again,  My wife can remember stuff for ever, but it is selective and she only remembers the times she was right and the times I was wrong,  Funny stuff memory.
