Honda Jazz Mk4 2020 - / Re: Car Reviews
« Last post by richardfrost on Today at 08:49:09 AM »
Very fair, informative and useful centre spread review of the Mk4 in this weekend's Yorkshire Post motoring section. A bit late to the party but worth a read if you are interested and able.

Update - Honda told me to get in touch with Garmin. (Nice example of slopey shoulders there!) I did so and eventually was given a case number and "we'll get back to you when the next update is available."  Quite why I couldn't be given the most recent update ... mystery!

I'll let y'all know what happens!

Honda Jazz Mk2 2008-2015 / Re: tailored rubber mats

There’s loads on eBay, full sets for 30 quid,  but I suspect the quality isn’t that great. Be interested to see if anyone has any other recommendations as I wouldn’t mind some rubber mats.

What's worrying is that 'they' are going to force us all on to electric heating as they outlaw gas.

I've got a very good built in warm air system and my house isn't engineered for radiators.

The boiler cannot stay where it is. The bulk of the kitchen is 1950s, with the sink and units around it 60-70s. The central heating was originally run off the coal fire and back boiler but the combi was put in several years back under a grant scheme and the clowns who installed it fitted the boiler over part of a double socket!
A new fitted kitchen is a must.
The house is well insulated with full double glazing windows and doors, cavity wall insulation and generous loft insulation. The loft had been insulated, but at the time the combi was installed new thick insulation was placed over the top of the original insulation. The radiators are not microbore and are all fitted with thermostats, though manual and not programmable. Mum used to have the house like a hothouse and her monthly gas bills were never that high.
The technology for an electric combi boiler is anything but in its infancy. It appears to be a tiny self-contained immersion system for the central heating, with a flash boiler for the hot water system. I am currently waiting on a Fischer catalogue arriving but there are several other makes I am looking at.
When I had my own house we only ran the heating in the lounge, downstairs hall (the one that was on continuously), and bathroom. The only time heating was on in the bedrooms were if someone was in bed, unwell, or when my daughter used her room as her study.

This all sounds very expensive to me  if the boiler and general heating/hot water are and have been working ok, Why  not  wait a while to get an idea of existing costs whilst proceeding to cost up the work possibly needed with estimates and possibly any grants available.
Anyway good luck in your new abode  hope this all works out ok for you.

Honda Jazz Mk3 2015 - 2020 / Re: 1.5 Sport
« Last post by monkeydave on Today at 03:03:16 AM »
its got a direct injection engine so may carbon up on the intake valves at higher mileages

also the top speed is the same as the 1.3 even though the 0-60 is quicker

the engine is still used in the mk4 hybrid but is de tuned to 108hp from 130hp

We've had the 1.5 Sport for a while now and it is very good overall, performance compared to our old 1.4 Mk1 Sport is noticeably better. It's no hot hatch but there is certainly enough power and torque is decent enough for a Jazz, definitely better than all the other Jazz's I've driven so far.

Fuel consumption is on par with our old 1.4 MK1, not noticeably more thirsty though I'm sure if I worked it out properly it might be slightly worse but given the better performance and driveability its definitely not an issue for us.

Insurance, we're on a multicar deal paying around £400/yr.

There are a few things to be aware of that are small annoyances for us...

1. Squeaky clutch pedal - We had this problem for a little while but then after spraying some lubricant on it it seems to have gone away.
2. Engine hesitancy at just below 2k rpm - Sometimes at a certain rpm below 2k, there seems to be a sudden dip in power which is a little annoying but not a "problem" as such.
3. Rear head room - As the interior trim on the roof curves in, some people will find it touches their head when sitting up straight. I think the car is not as tall as the MK1 so there is definitely less head room because of this compared to our MK1 Jazz.
4. Crosswind stability at motorway speed - This is a problem for all lightweight cars but it seems a little worse compared to our old MK1. When fully loaded with passengers our MK1 was actually reasonably stable whereas with our MK3 sport, it seems a bit more susceptable even when fully loaded.
5. Dash reflection on windscreen - On sunny days, you can see the textured plastic dash reflected on the windscreen which is quite annoying and sometimes distracts you. But we've learnt to live with it.
6. Driver seat, I get a slight backache with the seat after a long drive but doesn't seem to affect my wife so it might just be me.

Other than the above, we love everything else with the sport, the looks, the way it drives, the little gimmicks and so we plan to keep it for quite some time.

Honda Jazz Mk1 2002-2008 / Re: Backbox just dropped off.

Kwik fit, 2 year guarantee. New one identical. Pipe corroded at the joint. Rest of box like brand new (still with label intact).

Where the spring bolts are? Could it be they were too tight and not allowing the necessary flex and movement?
