The simple thing to remember is, ANY use of the brakes is wasted energy/petrol and I would suggest that you would, without question use the brakes more in ‘D’ mode, than ‘B’ mode.

My 2020 Crosstar is also afflicted but I won't chase the dealer. September tends to be one of the busier months with the new registration prefix and while they may not be selling many new cars this year, services for those sold in previous Septembers will be due if on 12 month service intervals.

D or B.  Lift off early, loose speed gradually with mild regeneration over a greater distance
This is simply not an option in busy urban traffic if you don't want to annoy your fellow road users.
You'd love following me  :D

I think I'm lucky that I live roughly 1500 km (1000 mi) east of you...  :D

Anybody getting this message when they check the VIN on the UK site?

If that's your VIN in your image, then that works OK now, your car is affected.

I apologise for drifting off topic, but one other subject which is often misunderstood is that of the "Human Rights", which is frequently at the root of complaints about being told what we must do by others, specifically the EU stopping us doing stuff to people citing Human Rights as if it's a bad thing.
https://www.coe.int/en/web/impact-convention-human-rights/how-it-works

The ECHR (European Convention on Human Rights) is nothing whatsoever to do with the EU, contrary to popular belief. As per the link, ALL 46 Council of Europe members have signed up to the ECHR. The UK enacted it in the form of the Human Rights Act (1998), that law which is under review and the government wants to replace with the Bill of Rights https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/bill-of-rights-bill-documents
Now I confess I haven't trawled through that document to see what it changes relative to the HRA, but the very concept of tearing up the HRA does fill me with trepidation. I don't really know why our govt wants to do it. Actually yes I do, the Bill of Rights proposed in essence takes authority away from the Courts and gives it to the Government (in theory Parliament but in practice the Government), basically the Government can over-rule a Court regarding your Human Rights. Hmmm, not sure I like that. Do I want Patel deciding my freedoms and prohibiting me from being able to take it to the European Court of Justice for an independent assessment?

I have read the summary of the ECHR, there are I think 10 basic chapters and another 4 or something add-ons (codicils?). If you read through those, I'm not sure which of them anyone would think are not a good idea, stuff like freedom from slavery, freedom from unlawful execution by the state, the right of children to an education, freedom of religious belief, etc etc.
The very fact that 46 countries are signed up to the ECHR and it hasn't just been dreamt up over night suggests to me that it's probably quite a decent principled document. I don't understand why the UK seems to think we know better. Could it be just a muscle flexing exercise to make it look like we've "taken back control"? Why not just accept what everyone else has signed up to, or are we somehow different? We're the UK, those namby pamby rules don't apply to us?

Yes, me too. I'm booked in for my first service on 1 September (car bought 3 Sept 2021). I will probably contact my dealer re the recall.

Update: Just spoke to the Service Department and they have confirmed my Crosstar is on the recall list. They've added the work to the service job sheet. Good job I saw this on Club Jazz; thanks for the heads up.

Who's running the country while Johnson is on holiday again and Truss and Sunak are fighting like rats in a sack?

Possibly the Deputy Prime Minister?

Brandon Lewis this morning  “You know as well as I do that as politicians and particularly in a role such as prime minister, even when you are not in the office in Downing Street you are working.”

This afternoon No 10 has now admitted that Boris Johnson will only work from his holiday in Greece if it is “urgent”, hours after former minister Brandon Lewis said the prime minister’s work ethic was not waning in the final days of his premiership.
However, Johnson’s official spokesman clarified that he would not be doing routine work as he was “on leave” and would only be contacted if there were “urgent decisions” to be taken.
“As is the way with prime ministers as you know, by virtue of their role they’ll obviously be kept informed on any urgent issues and make decisions particularly those [related to] national security for example,” he said. “If there were urgent decisions that required the PM’s input he will of course be involved in that.”

He said there were no major meetings scheduled for this week that would require Dominic Raab, the justice secretary, to deputise."

It's not as if there was anything important on like a war in Europe, a cost of living crisis, a heatwave, possible flooding -----

Honda Jazz Mk1 2002-2008 / Re: the mystery of the Engine light
« Last post by embee on Today at 04:22:16 PM »
There are generally two types of fault, those which are "latching" and those "non-latching".

Latching are basically serious or significant issues, principally those which will cause emission control to be compromised. As the name suggests, these cause the MIL to come on and stay on (latch) until someone goes in and cancels it. The MIL stays on even if the original fault goes away on its own.

Non-latching are less significant faults, some which may compromise drivability or emission control to some extent but if the fault goes away (e.g. poor intermittent electrical connection, a sensor slightly out of range etc) and the system returns to normal operation the MIL can cancel on its own. A fault code may well still be stored in the ECU for future reference.

 Sounds like you had a non-latching type fault, possibly a hot fuel handling issue for example, which once it cooled and sorted itself means the MIL has gone out again.

strange thing happened saturday .. had to do a 4 hour round trip to Oxfordshire and back to the west midlands.. as we all know it was damn hot.. had a trip to a nice pub by the thames for some grub. but when we left following our son inlaws honda civic 4 years old lol.. the trusty ol jazz had a sudden loss of oooomph . only slightly when accelerating from 3rd etc. anyway i then noticed the damn engine light had popped up glaring me in the face from the dash grrrr.. although the car seemed to run fine apart from a slight sluggish acceleration.. as my cat was stolen a couple of months back i put it down to maybe a cheapo aftermarket lamba sensor packing up.. anyway drove back to shropshire ok even on the motorway.. light was still on yesterday.. this morning refilled her up for the week ahead . as soon as we pulled out the garage i noticed the engine light had gone out.. ? been fine ever since .. freaky ?
