Honda Jazz Mk3 2015 - / Re: All Season Tyres on Jazz CVT
« Last post by culzean on Today at 05:19:07 PM »
All season tyres are probably OK for Jazz 1.2 and 1.3 with its limited power,  but as for the 1.5 I am not sure.  Bear in mind that all season are a compromise, they are not as good in summer as a summer tyre and neither are they as good in winter as a winter tyre.  I would use all season if my car had pressure sensors built into the rim if only to save the twice yearly re-programming of the sensors to the ECU.  With ABS system of TPMS I use steel wheels in winter with winter tyres and alloys in summer with summer tyres.  This spreads the wear of the tyres and also protects those costly alloys from winter kerbing and salt damage.  Once you have the steel rims the winter tyres are not expensive,  especially if you go for 175/65R15 size,  which are better in snow than the wider tyres anyway, and a lot cheaper because more get sold.  The steel wheels also protect the brakes better from salt and water as there are a lot less open areas in the rim than in an alloy wheel.  The added benefit is that you can use a winter wheel as a spare in summer and a summer wheel as a spare in winter, saving the cost of a separate spare wheel ( or a spacesaver,  I have driven on a spacesaver a couple of times and it is a horrible experience - keep away from spacesavers if you can).

I have driven CVT cars in snow and they cope pretty well because with a light right foot they always select the highest gear they can and put power down gently through the tyres, which minimises wheel spin.

I'm still on my Nokian winter tyres & steel wheels, I found a deal sometime ago with My Tyres and swop over every November to March.
I know of good reports on the more modern cross climates Michelin, Pirelli & Toyo.
The Honda Jazz on 16" alloys is an odd size plenty of winter only

In Car Entertainment / Honda Jazz 2018 Sport Navi - Satnav getting lost.
« Last post by MJD on Today at 01:40:53 PM »
2018 Honda Jazz Sport Navi - Purchased in June (my 7th Honda) is proving very disappointing as the Honda/Garmin Satnav frequently gets lost, taking shortcuts across fields and failing to turn off at junctions when I do.
Please - Has anyone here had this problem and found a solution? as the Honda main dealer in Norwich is unable to solve this and the Honda UK. MD fails to even respond to my request for help.
It is so frustrating as I could never trust it on a long unfamiliar journey.
To make matters worse since the purchase I have discovered that the Map is only updated once a year!
The displayed speed limits are at least 18 months out of date on local 'A roads'
Another problem - The 'My Honda' dongle which sent very impressive reports to mobile phone but then stopped working after a few months.
This all spoils what could otherwise be an enjoyable car.

Honda Jazz Mk3 2015 - / Re: Clutch Pedal Sensor
« Last post by dogbiscuit on Today at 01:00:03 PM »
Thanks for the info. I have had a long standing issue where the parking sensors fail to activate on start-up. My car has been back to the workshop many times to resolve with Honda directing the dealership to try various things. Honda are convinced that the issue is related to the clutch pedal sensor and this has now been replaced and latterly some adjustment made so that I cannot start the car unless itís in neutral. I didnít think this was the behaviour prior to my last workshop visit and I was just seeking confirmation.

Good luck with your car.
Whichever Jazz you choose you will grow to love it.
I'm on my third new Jazz and I have a CVT SE.
My first automatic.
No regrets. Still sometimes reach for the gearstick but would not go back to a manual.
I'm a fan of Diamond Bright also.
Like the others say it's a buyers market so negotiate the best deal that you can.

Honda Jazz Mk2 2008-2015 / Re: Tyre repair gunge

Just reviving older thread rather than starting a new one, I carry one of these on my motorbike, and if I am going on holiday in the car I move it from under the motorbike seat and into car glove box.  It uses a mushroom  shaped plug that is applied from outside the tyre, only thing you need is a pair of pliers to remove the nail or screw.  You can get the kit with or without the CO2 cylinders, ( may not need them for a car if you have a pump) but for as motorbike with no pump they are required.

My wife is just scrapping her 2004 Jazz SE Sports, and it must be one of the last ones which came with a half size spare wheel as standard.
I've got a 2012 Jazz I-VTEC ES CVT (it says here) - does anyone know if the spare will fit mine? Mine came with a bottle of stuff for resealing the tyre which is now two years out of date, an I'd rather have a wheel, anyway...

The bolt pattern will be the same but measure the diameter to see if it is anywhere near the same as the 175/65R15 or 185/55R16 wheel you have on the 2012. Maybe just offer it up to the car and see if it is anywhere near same.  The tyre is probably past its use by date though.
