Honda Jazz Mk1 2002-2008 / CVT transmission oil
« Last post by Yasir on Today at 12:15:08 AM »
I bought my car from a small car sales a week ago. Can I get cvt fluid directly from a Honda dealer?

Sorted, thank you very much.

Honda Jazz Mk3 2015 - / Re: Boot Measurement

When I changed from a Mk2 to a Mk 3, I found the Mk 3 boot to be rather shorter front to back, but deeper to the parcel shelf.  I think they increased the legroom in the rear seats by slightly shortening the boot.

Thanks both

Yes, full service and two new tires before I left.

On the first day I was driving the speed limit (about 80mph) but slowed down today as I realised that wasn’t too sensible so kept below 60mph all day. Do you think that I would benefit from going slower than 60?

The aerodynamic drag increases with speed squared so, for example, 70 mph has 60% more drag than 55 mpg. Combined with the extra drag from the roof box this could also mean the engine working outside its most efficient range. Potter along at lorry speed even if it takes a bit longer and you might see 40 mpg.

Maybe not realising that full power is beyond the resistance accounts for some of the incredible mpg figures claimed.  ;D

Just seen your post re try the limiter, I will have a go tomorrow, if I can figure out how it works, I am a cruise control user.

It works for me and I never use the speed limiter. Having looked at the manual, it only mentions depressing the accelerator fully, it does not mention going beyond the resistance of the detent.
I'm not sure what you mean "It works for me".  And surely "depressing the accelerator fully" means just that.

It works for me means it gives me more power after the increased resistance although I don't use the limiters. I still think it is an economy stop which many drivers will never discover as they will think they are at full throttle when they reach the resistance.
OK I see what you mean.  Just out of interest try the speed limiter some time (the manual one will do) and you will see what I am describing.  I think you may find that with the limiter set it wont try to change down until you go past the indent.  I don't have a CVT at my disposal so can't confirm that myself but I would be interested in your findings.

Speed makes a massive difference as drag increases dramatically so drive as slow as is bearable.  What speed are you typically doing?

Only other obvious thing I can think of is make sure the tyre pressures are on their max.  Hopefully you did that anyway.

It's certainly possible. A pity there's no mention of it in the Jazz manual.

I just did a Google search for it and this time it found quite a few hits (I thought last time I tried it didn't find anything):

https://www.google.co.uk/search?q=accelerator+pedal+notch+at+bottom+of+travel&rlz=1C1CHBF_en-GBGB782GB782&oq=accelerator+pedal+notch+at+bottom+of+travel&aqs=chrome..69i57.5272j0j7&sourceid=chrome&ie=UTF-8

Lots of opinions, no-one seems to know for sure :-/

Maybe we could ask Honda. On the other hand why bother? I know what they will respond with:

"There is a notch at the bottom of the pedal and pressing past this point will make the car go faster."
