Honda Jazz Mk3 2015 - / Re: Tyre and Alloy insurance?
« Last post by Skyrider on September 22, 2018, 04:17:34 PM »
It's the first time I have heard of that dealer money maker. In 50 odd years of driving I have wrecked one tyre and scraped the odd wheel.
The damaged wheel was totally ignored at trade in time. Any insurance is a gamble weighted towards the insurance company.  Whatever you do make sure you read the small print, it can render the policy worthless. I am sure I could manage quite well without it.

When I bought a new gas boiler I stopped the maintenance contract, I could buy a new boiler every four years with the money I saved.

In 15000 miles and 16 months it is feasible your tracking could have gone out of alignment due to any knocks the wheels have taken from potholes, kerbing etc. If they charge you or not is down to any company policies they have on it and pure goodwill.

As far as half the tread being half-worn on the rest of the tyre, partly depends on the rubber compound of the tyre, softer rubber grips  the road better (so are safer) but wears out quicker, more expensive (and sportier) tyres like continental and pirelli tend to use softer rubber compounds for the better grip. Cheap tyres tend to last better as they use harder rubber compounds but don't grip as well particularly in wet weather, also, I've noticed the cheap ones tend to crack on the sidewalls earlier due to UV light damage earlier than expensive ones.

Wear also depends on driving style, conditions and vehicle (power, weight, tyre pressures, steering and suspension set up), so it's impossible to say if it's reasonable or fair, due to too many variables, I wouldn't consider it as outwith the realms of acceptability. As front tyres wear out quicker than rears on front wheel drive cars many people have them changed round to even up the wear.

Sorry, there isn't really a definitive answer, every case is different. Good luck.

I'm buying a 3 year old SE, dealer wants to sell me " Tyre and Alloy insurance". Is it something I need? Should I turn it down and get it elsewhere?
I've signed a contract so it may be too late. Picking up the car Tuesday Sept.25.

It must be a random issue, ours doesn't seem to drift between changes for BST & GMT. That's the only time we have to mess about with it.

I'm rather intrigued by mine at the moment. Due to a road closure I'm having to divert my commute and instead of 12 miles of A road at 50mph it's now almost entirely dual carriageway and motorway at 60mph with some delays at the A43/M40 junction where the idle stop comes into its own.

Although this has increased the distance by nearly 50% to 20 miles it has improved the reported fuel consumption. It had been showing around 54mpg over the summer but is now showing 58mpg. What's intriguing me is that after a week the fuel gauge is currently showing just under three quarters (for 200 miles) and the remaining distance is showing as 280 miles.

I thought 500 miles on one tank was unlikely.

I thought the 500 miles estimate was silly. Orange light came on at 410 miles with two bars on the fuel gauge. Finally filled up with the car saying 4 miles left, put in 35 litres. Pump to pump mpg was 55.9.

Bit of a pain. That means a full tank only has enough fuel for two week's commuting plus visiting two local golf courses..and even then I have to drive several miles with the warning light on. The sooner they fix that bridge and re-open the A422 the better :(

I have a little pot of touch-up paint for such occasions (you might find it cheaper elsewhere).

Had 4 new continental tyres fitted 16 months ago and 15000 miles extra on the clock. Just notice today front's have worn on outside and about half all other tread gone, is this fair ??

Going back later to ATS ( who are very good) to have 'tracking' re done, do you think i should be charged ? It was done when new tyres fitted.
