Honda Jazz Mk1 2002-2008 / Re: What MPG are you getting from your Mk1 Honda Jazz ?
« Last post by Jocko on July 22, 2017, 09:42:07 PM »
More ScanGauge info for today's run.

Distance travelled: 93.9 miles.
Average mpg: 57.2 mpg
Average speed: 34 mph
Max speed: 57 mph
Maximum revs: 3431 rpm
Max coolant temp: 85C

This was mainly dual carriageway with come B road and a bit of town driving. Temp was about 18C
but it was windy and heavy rain with standing water. On the return journey the traffic was really slow, mainly I guess due to the heavy rain. That always slows the traffic down (no bad thing). I was really quite pleased with these figures, though I find it rather difficult to get the mpg up on dual carriageway/ motorway driving.

Hi Madasafish; I don't do 2.5 miles a day, trips vary and some days I don't need use it. I can't believe you're saying short runs are going to cause a good disk to wear down to a 4mm ridge and break pads to within a few thou of the warning strip because of that. It must have been very close to those measurements when I bought it. Guess they thought it would do a few thou more so didn't bother to replace them. At least it had two new tyres on the front and two almost brand new ones on the back.

The reason for only short mileage per year is that I need the car for my partial disablement, can't walk far, so have it for convenience in my retirement; very pleased with it actually, reliable and good mileage even on short runs, and being auto, no clutch strain on my dodgy leg.

Well I guess they took longer to put a tick in all those boxes than it took to actually check the car.

After 14 months and doing around just 1000 miles after purchase the front brakes were binding on a short outward journey; lifting off to normal on the way back. So I dropped it in to my mate who owns a local garage. Very reliable guy who has been looking after up to 5 cars in the family for around 40 years, and only does what's necessary.

Rang me and said I needed new pads and disks. A bit surprised as I couldn't have worn down good ones in 1K miles as I'm very light on the brakes with my driving.

Collected the car and he showed me the old ones. A 4mm ridge on the disks and the pads were within just a few thou of the warning strip. Edges of the pads rubbing on the ridge of the disks. So definitely needed doing.

So basically the Honda Approved Used Cars -  Multi Point Check is a complete waste of time.
Honda Jazz 1.4 CVT SE 2008

1000 miles and 14 months is less than 2.5 miles per day. Which is not enough to warm the engine up let alone clean the brake disks from rust. As they are unpainted steel they will rust and such a low mileage is insufficient to clear all the rust away.. hence the state of the disks.

I suggest you are being unfair to the scheme.

I'll double check the air-filter again but I did pop it up when checking the car over and it looked as new (on the upper side), this was confirmed in the December service receipts as well.

Sorry for the tardy update.

Tried the washers in the car yesterday and the drivers side was almost spraying as it should.

Tried covering one side at a time to increase the pressure and this did appear to help slightly.  Still not exactly spraying per the '02 model but acceptable.

Got in the car this afternoon and it's back to the meagre stream again!  :-\

Should be on the main VIN plate, ending in M for metallic or P for pearlescent.

Azure Blue = B568M
New Sporty Blue = B593M
Cerulean Blue = BG53M
Sherbert Blue = B549M
Deep Sapphire Blue = B548P

If you guys that buy new or nearly new cars from Main Dealers just told them you were unhappy and will never buy another car from them (and stuck to that promise), things would maybe change. If I go to a shop, and buy something that's passed its sell by date I would complain to the manager, and never shop there again. The choice is yours.

On our Jazz there's a metal plate in the driver side door jam. Not sure it's the same at a UK car, but look at both door jams. ;)

I 'stole' an image from internet to show where the color code is located.
