Honda Jazz Mk4 2020 - / Re: Crosstar picked up and thanks
« Last post by 5thcivic on March 24, 2023, 02:04:07 PM »
Honda asked me to take part in a zoom call some months back for customer feedback on the app, and (one of the!) most annoying things was on boot it always showed the last condition before switching the car off, and you have to wait for it to load and then manually reset it top left to see the current condition of locked and windows closed in the garage! Why does it not do the condition at time of app loading automatically?

Yes, there a lot to learn and tweak to your liking.

Interesting point about sound insulation and Japanese roads. I find the Mk4 very quiet, and even flooring it is not really noisy, just the same kind of accel noise you'd get in a gearbox ICE taking it to high revs, and even then pretty muted. Perhaps just more noticeable because of the normal quietness.

I do find a difference in roads though, in electric mode and very noticeable in the E the quite "roar" of tyre noise is the sound you hear until you come to a section of road near here where brand new soft tarmac has been laid for a few hundred yards. Then there is almost an eerei silence, literally no noise at all, then the normal concrete mix starts again and the tyre noise coming back in is quite alarming because so very noticable after such "floating" silence. I wonder if that road ride in Japan is much better and the UK therefore needs special sound insulation?  :(

Picked my crossstar up yesterday afternoon and the rain gods won’t work with me. She drives beautifully and has had some great comments on how nice it looks including a few who couldn’t believe it was a jazz.

Like to say thanks to the forum for all the tips and advice, it actually made picking it up painless. Have Honda+ telling me the car is unlocked even though it isn’t. Thanks all.

At 6:27 it shows over 70 to be hybrid only, not just engine

That's why I responded (and quoted) only this ;):

.../... it is direct electric motor drive until +/- 70 mph then direct enging drive.

Not sure what you mean but all drive until approx 70mph is via electric drive, even if engine running surely

The Honda explanation is an outline reallly to explain the users of the car new to the hybrid idea . When the petrol engine connects to the drive still depends on the load required . At 90 mph you can still be in direct mechanical drive and the electric motor can add to that power . However if you go up hill on a motorway at 60 and floor the accelerator the mechanical drive will disingage as the system then needs the electric power from the generator to match the demands of electric motor which will try and take the battery HV energy if it can . The controlling PCM system is far more sophisticated than anything simply speed related!

The dealer you used to use was/is an example of how not to do it.
The Honda dealer in my hometown has really made a name for itself in terms of top service.
We (and not only us) are very happy with their way of working and 'customer treatment'
