Honda Jazz Mk3 2015 - / Re: New owners.

I agree, some people don't like change, even if it is an improvement. I don't understand why some people buy a car because of the name on the car. I think a purchase as important as a car requires research and an extensive test drive before a decision is made. The only thing I did not like about the 1.3 was the Atkinson cycle but that can be driven around. I put my money where my mouth is an solved the bit I did not like by buying a 1.5. Having the facelift improvements was a bonus!

It saddens me to read the comments of some of the new owners of 2018 models. I get the impression, from reading the various threads, that there is more than a modicum of disappointment being experienced by many of the purchasers. Maybe this the norm when owners update from an earlier version of the car. Instead of revelling in the better features, and enjoying the new car, owners only see the things that are not as good as the old car. Perhaps it is an argument for always changing models/marques when you change vehicles.

Having bought one of these new in January (1.3 S), I've got to say I love it, compared to my mk1 which I run alongside it (and also appreciate), it's bigger, faster, better equipped, better on fuel, better technology, only problem was er' indoors complained it was underpowered (after a hyundai i30 1.6 turbodiesel). Once I told her to ignore the dashboard economy lights telling her to move up gears and don't be scared to rev it to get the power, she then began to enjoy driving it, I've found you have to be precise with being in the right gear at the right revs or it can be sluggish, I enjoy getting that part of driving it right (sometimes!), others might find it annoying, I'd guess this is what people are disappointed with about the mk3, on the other hand that's what makes the fuel economy so good, can't have everything. If it proves to be as reliable as my mk1 has been over the last 12 years, I'll be more than happy.

So in the mk3 cvt 1.5 sport there is normal drive and lever right back s mode where you can use the paddles or let it change for you, if this is so its like the daihatsu yrv turbo cvt 7 step ratios 130 i had and in sport mode paddleshift it was so quick and as good as any dsg i have had before the 0.60 was 7.8secs but mostly it was the acceleration that was good.

You can use the paddles to "change gear" in Drive or Sport modes.

In Sport mode the car stays in the paddle selected gear, but in normal mode it will change out of paddle selected at the slightest excuse. This is how it is on the Mk2 and Mk3 (1.3)

Is the 1.5 different in this respect?

On local, usually quiet when I use them motorways, I run at 60 or 70 depending on how I feel. Out of my area on a long journey I run at 70 or what the traffic will allow if it is busy. Being retired I don't drive for more than two hours at a time or four hours in a day. This makes Edinburgh to the London area a two day journey each way although I used to do it in one day when I was younger. Fuel consumption is only of passing interest to me because of my motoring anorak tendencies and as an indicator that the engine is operating correctly, brakes not binding etc.

Hi sky have you done many miles in your jazz sport yet have you put it in s mode much or just drive.

About 2,500 miles, I have only used sport mode briefly on a couple of occasions. Motorway on slip and A road overtaking.
