It might also convince Honda time is up in UK,

Once my new house DIY is complete I'm selling mine, hopefully before next insurance due date in April 25

The whole car scene is now a nightmare with new prices and insurance and some dealers arguing there is no underlying problems ala our MK4 Jazz and the 2017 Civic rubber timing belts

"You're the only one we've heard of" "Wear and tear, you'll need to pay"
The belt in oil is used by several companies, and they are all turning out to be utter disasters. They should stick to proven technology. As you say, wear and tear and they're off the hook in Europe. I think they've all looked long and hard at how VAG have got away with building some appalling machines (early dsg, timing chains, EA189 fiasco, Columbus head units etc the list is very long!) and treating their customers poorly outside of warranty to no detriment to their market share. BM and their N47 engine timing chains is another text book case of same.

Into the mix has to be the change in how people buy their cars nowadays. I understand less than 5% of punters buy their motors cash, the rest are on the never never monthly. Therefore, the long term engineering and quality of a car is of no concern to the majority of buyers and manufacturers are only too aware of this. Disaster and terrible for the planet. 

Either way, come on Honda, get this sorted!!

Maybe all forum members should email Honda UK ( info.uk@honda-eu.com ) and complain. Surely 100's of complaints from current and future MK4 owners would make a difference? Just a thought.

Does social media activity not get the most response these days? I don't do social media, but maybe those that do?

I've just renewed mine via a comparision site and it's gone up by only £7 ..   
Nice one! You are very much in the minority from what is being reported. Good to hear. Maybe the market is levelling out premium wise? There can't be much more £ to squeeze from us poor motorists!

Excellent.  :)They are brilliant little motors. Love the colour of yours.

Out of interest, what do you make of the window wind deflectors you fitted? Would you recommend them?

There are 3 USB connections on the rear of the Joying. I connected 2 to my Honda loom supplying the 2 onboard USB sockets, the remaining one I ran one of the supplied cables into the glovebox. Neither of the onboard sockets supplied enough power to charge an iPhone 15 Pro and TBH I havenít used wired CarPlay so canít help there.
You are only supplied with one cable that connects directly to Honda USB loom,so if you wish to use both onboard sockets you need to order another cable.

In case you're interested, I contacted their support team and asked for another Honda usb connector to allow both factory USB sockets to work with the unit. Expecting a no, they said they would include a second one. I'd be amazed if that happens - saves me £10-20 just on that connector!
Yes, their customer service is very good

Impressive! Yes, warmer weather will always boost the economy no matter what car - warm up is where you are getting 15-20mpg until it's up to temp. I don't know about Honda but on Toyota cars they have designed them so they warm up faster by recirculating the exhaust gasses to warm up the coolant which in turns warms up the engine quicker.

If Honda employ the same, then explains why the blue light goes out so quickly.

It's really good on long runs.
In town i'm getting anything from 41-53 mpg depending on hoe much traffic I encounter and the outside temp sems to make a difference. The warmer the weather the better the cars economy, I don't know if that's because the enigne warms up quicker or what.  Strange but tue ! ..

Yep same here.   I'm on my 3rd Jazz.   ( I had 2 MK1 Jazz Manuals ) and now on my 3rd Jazz which is a MK3 2017 SE CVT Auto  ( As I work in London so it's a lot of stop start.  ) .. Love the car. £35 VED and great economy. Half decent on a motorway as well.  Done a 4 hr trip the other day and got 72mpg out of it on the motorway @ 68mph ave.

I'm amazed you get such good economy out of your 1.3 CVT? We recently bought one and the best we're getting is about 50mpg which isn't that bad either. It was between the Jazz or the Yaris and while we would've liked the Mk 4 Yaris, it was just a bit too much at the moment (though economy on that is unreal).

Unfortunately we also got a late 2017 so missed out on the cheaper VED!!  :'(

I've just renewed mine via a comparision site and it's gone up by only £7 ..  The renewal from my current insurer wanted an extra £125.. Hence why I switched and moved.  Mines a 2017 SE CVT Auto ( 1.3, UK Car )
