Hello,
yes you're right, it's a real shame, I didn't know they existed,
now I have looked at the Japanese catalog and actually I am surprised that in Europe it is not available, also because there is a problem possibly with customs if these things are only found in Japan

Like Sportse, I can confirm it does happen, but mainly when you need to pull in close to the verge to pass another vehicle.
I also now disable RDMS every trip, as I consider it to be a dangerous function and certainly get a wake up call when I sometimes forget. :o

The Problem with RDMS is that at any moment on a country road it could pull the steering and send you head on into oncoming traffic.
I find this very hard to believe. I have had mine for 16 months and approaching 5k miles. I have not experienced anything like that. Yes it can vibrate the wheel and sometimes it seems a bit premature but steering into oncoming traffic, no. I have noticed that the vibration happens a lot less now than when I first had the car. So maybe my driving has improved .
From your statement above shouldn't you be reporting this to Honda, NCAP and the DVSA.
As it’s an optional system you switch on they are unlikely to do anything unfortunately- I took the car back to the dealer and they plugged it in and said all was working as it should.

I disable RDMS before every drive, never use LKAS and only use ACC on a clear road and disable before it does anything unwanted.

Honda Jazz Mk4 2020 - / Mileage at first service?
« Last post by sportse on Today at 02:51:46 PM »
My dealer told me 12500 miles or 12 months whichever comes first , but you are allowed to go up to a 1000 miles over on mileage ,or book in for service  a month early or late without affecting the warranty. 

He also said that due to complaints  about early service reminders  the system had been disabled on my car and I would be reminded by their service department.     I think he said it is now Honda policy to disable this by default.  .   There is a tick box printed in the  service book  which shows whether or not the system is disabled on that particular car.  (next to the pre delivery dealers stamp)

My only concern is whether the system will still warn me if the oil level is getting low (not just  the oil pressure warning light ! ) Of course I can use the dipstick  but the handbook says oil consumption can be up to 1 litre per 1000km (625 miles)  I have been known to do that in a day.  (To be fair my Toyota Yaris handbook quoted the same oil consumption but never used much oil.)

The oil is not available everywhere.  Should I buy a litre, or  a 4 -5 litre container?
I was able to get a top up 1 litre bottle from the dealer.

After 4000 miles, the oil is still at the top of the dipstick so it hasn’t used any.

It’s very difficult to read the oil level though , particularly when the oil is new and clear as it doesn’t really show well on the plastic measuring part of the dipstick.

Exactly the same issue on the Civic and dealers mostly didn't activate it.

I'm sure if it does start to nag before the due date or mileage you can reset it.

Mine will be one year as I'm very low mileage now.

I bought my Jazz 2 months ago, the mileage was 8 and showing 360 days to service…

Now, 2 months and 4000 miles later it shows only 170 days left until service.

Probably 80-90% is motorway driving at 70mph (113kph.)
