Unless you can afford a Tesla!

Even if you can afford one they can't deliver one.

I'd like cargo nets in the boot like the MK2, and a radio with buttons instead of a touch screen.
The head unit makes the interior look much more modern  :)

Full EV for me!

Totally useless for travelling any distance. OK if you only want a shopping trolley.
Honda Jazz Mk1 2002-2008 / Remote fob problem
« Last post by fisherman on Today at 07:28:38 PM »
Following the cold snap our Fit had all the doors stuck fast with ICE, and even though the fob opened all the buttons entry was not possible. Later we gained access through the tail gate, and then had to thump the drivers door from the inside to break the frost hold. Engine started no problem, so I re locked with the fob, All doors including tail gate locked I heard them, the buttons went down on the front passengers and both rear doors, but the drivers door did not lock. I used the fob to re open the car, again all but the drivers door opened, I had insert the key in order to open. I am able to open ALL DOORS with the key, and LOCK ALL DOORS with the key. The fob refuses to open the drivers door. Ideas please.

They should have a hybrid option.
There's one now but it's not particularly exciting. To be honest I have kind of said to myself that my next car should have some form of alternative fuel power train. So I'll add my vote along those lines.
Honda Jazz Mk1 2002-2008 / Re: Replacing the front quarter window.

If you do want to save your excess and a claim against you, it can be done. Bear in mind that a windscreen claim has to be declared for 5 years if you change insurance company, and whilst your NCD remains intact, it does make a difference to your premium, no matter what they tell you! You get an insurance quote, then tell them you have had a glass claim in the last five years, see what happens... and don't ignore it, as all claims are logged on a central database.

The hardest bit is removing the glass without damaging it, but most decent scrapyards will remove them for you, or try eBay. The small quarterlights aren't too difficult, but you need the right tools. To remove the small windows, a cutting wire, handles and a wire inserter should suffice, and there are videos on youtube, etc.,  showing you how to use them. If you were cutting a glass out for reuse, you could do with practising first, but it doesn't matter if you are removing the old damaged one.

Carefully remove any plastic trims so they can be reused. Try to leave a thin skin of sealant on the car body, as any bare metal needs to be primed with the special primer. Carefully trim down the thickness of the old sealant after removing the glass, if required. Wipe the old sealant on the body and the glass with IPA or thinners and apply a proper polyurethane windscreen bonding adhesive such as Dinitrol or Mannol to the glass, or at a pinch, polyurethane seam sealer. Cut a 90 vee into the nozzle to guide application. Carefully fit the glass in place, taking care to set it in the same position as the original, and fix in place with tape until it cures.

It's a fiddly job, personally I would try to find someone who fits windscreens and ask how much they would charge to do the job if you supply a secondhand glass, it will still probably end up cheaper than your excess. I've done them before, but a friend of mine's nephew now works for one of the big national windscreen fitters and will fit a windscreen on the side for twenty quid!
Having almost the whole system falling off ( very very noisy ) on our last Jazz, decided to invest in a new one as soon as I bought this 12 plate EX.     Saw a Kwik Fit one..... Wouldn't have put it on a moped, every bend was flattened. So the pipe bore must have been severely restricted .  Fast Fit in Basingstoke made one one the car in stainless steel.
A real Work of art.
