I tried, this morning. Held the brake pedal down, hard. The engine kept on running......

Seems, I've been driving correctly. And, stop start isn't fitted to my car!

I'll find out tomorrow when I pick up my CVT. From what you say Mike, presumably there is no way round, on the Honda system, the blinding of drivers behind with your brake lights if you use stop start?
In my experience of rush-hour driving most of them deserve to be punished anyway  :P

Really bad attitude alert  :o  :o

I was always taught to treat others as you would like to be treated....

The VW system, or so it would seem, would allow you to hold the car on the handbrake rather than keeping the footbrake depressed.
The only problem I see with that is if you just want to creep forwards. At least with the Honda system you just release the pedal and it creeps and your foot can keep the pedal covered ready to stop again. With the VW system there could be a risk of over revving and rear-ending the vehicle in front and most drivers would have to move their foot from the accelerator back to the pedal to stop the vehicle.

Still - that seems to dispel my idea that it's a universal design resulting from a universal problem with automatics :-/

My Jazz, at 100+ K miles and 12 years old just cost 324 for a gearbox repair. How many years warranty would that buy?

Honda Jazz Mk3 2015 - / Re: Servicing

I have used a non-Honda garage twice, but they couldn't reset the CVTF service interval, so I had to go back to Honda with my tail between my legs and request that they reset it, which they did, much to their amusement.

Not on a Jazz but I've been using Michelins for 4 years.  It came with Energy Savers which lasted 30k but I wasn't happy with wet grip (it rains a lot here in NI). Changed to Cross Climate and immediately noticed much better wet grip (did I mention we get a lot of rain in NI?) 10k further on and it seems they are wearing a bit faster but ought to last at least another 10k, except I won't know - taking it in for my new Jazz tomorrow :D

Seemingly not....I am in the group that accepts this as part of modern driving.
