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

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.

On another thread I mentioned a trip, as a passenger, I had taken in a CVT Jazz. In short they seem well suited to driving in an urban setting but I felt it struggled elsewhere and was a bit whiny. I am pretty sure I wouldn't have one although I guess you need to drive it rather than just being a passenger.

I notice Toyota are having a big advertising campaign for the latest Yaris Hybrid (also CVT) and it seems very heavily slanted towards urban driving.

More than ever, and I guess it's a good thing, we have cars aimed at specific situations and markets. The choice out there is better than ever.

As an update on this - I had both of my Jazz's airbag inflators replaced 12 months ago by Honda under the Takata recall.

Had another letter early last week for another airbag inflator recall for the passenger side air bags now on both Jazz's again.

Had work completed yesterday on both cars so both have had drivers and passenger airbag inflators replaced now.

I suspect there may be more recalls to come on this for the side air bag inflators... as it seems the works are somewhat phased e.g. phase 1 being drivers airbag, phase 2 passengers and maybe suspected phase 3 of sides...

Just thought I would share my 2 cents :)
