Will have a look at the Forces discount discount, ISTR Marshalls Cambridge weíre doing this for LRs, they may do similar for Hondas.

Re LRs, we ran LRs solidly since the late 80s, prob had over 20 in our time but those days are past.  After I sold my Disco 4 2.5 years ago, and my D3 died a grizzly death 2,200 miles from home when the engine ate itself, we just ran two Jazzes until I bought my 4x4 Karoq last year, and wouldnít go back to LR.  Iím officially now enjoying a stress free motoring life!  ;D

The discount comes in 2 flavours, depending on where you served, UK or Overseas.
The Overseas version is considerably more, so much so, itís unlikely that most dealers would be able to honour it.
Mine was the UK discount, but still ran into 4 figures.

You can browse the stock of ex-demonstrators at https://usedcars.honda.co.uk/en/honda/jazz-crosstar-hybrid in case there's something nearby that ticks the right boxes (a minority have the service plan included).  I recall that the service plan can bought up to 6 months from first registration.

Many thanks, had a mooch through those.  Some pretty ouchy prices cf buying new, only a little more for unmolested looks like our way to go. 

Anyone else think the Crosstar in black looks a bit odd?  Canít put my finger on it but it looks good in all the other colours but looks bloated in black.  Unfortunately MrsDSL has ruled out the light blue, Iíd go grey or white if I had to make a decision.

Hi I am new Crosstar owner here.

Quick question when I approach to the car ahead closely there is no warning alert. Does is it only works when Adaptive Cruise Control active?   

Thanks

Check the Whatcar prices and also run some numbers through Internet sites. At least it gives you a bargaining point with dealer.

Yes, but needs to be switched On from the Driver Assist  System Screen on the Centre Info Panel, (page 353 of the On-line manual)

Hi happy MK4 Jazz owners,

I have a question regarding battery charge level. In town I usually drive on "B" gear mode and "D" when I am on motorway.

The battery charge level never exceeds 4 level. I usually drive very calm and normally dont floor the gas pedal. I read that battery level usually stays at 70-80%   

Am I doing something wrong?     

I would appreciate the help.

thanks

Going down a steep hill my battery goes to 100% and regularly goes above 60 in normal urban driving. On motorways the battery stays lower so it could be the type of journeys you're doing. If you have climate and/or other things on then that affects things too.

I agree, I can reach 100% going down a hill and usually it hardly ever goes below 30%, maybe averaging around 40% to 70%.
Climate Control is on Auto permanently, set to 19c

I just wonder whether when driving in B mode, your giving the car a chance for B mode to work.

By that I mean when approaching a normal junction/stop, let the regeneration do the braking and only use the foot brake for the last few yards. Almost 1 pedal motoring ! 

I accept that it takes a bit of practice, but it does work. My mpg over the last tankful is 70.5 and as total mileage increases it seems to be getting better.

Iím a bit lazier, mine just get taken off and bunged in the shed.  Then put on in the spring.  Iím not sure if the winter wheel on SWMBOís 9 year old Jazz have ever been washed!

Good point re TPMS system, do these Jazzes use valve sensor units or the wheel speed sensors?  The former indeed makes a 2nd set a pain.
Wheel speed sensor. 100% confirmed by my direct experience when I mounted the winter tyres

Honestly, I like it very much in black. It makes the car a bit classier, given the contrast of chrome details like roof rails, mirrors and front grid.
