You can currently buy the Toyota Mirai here in the UK, but the price puts it in Jaguar I-PACE territory.

Hyundai ix35 was available here but no longer appears to be on sale.
Hyundai ix35 FCEV

Honda Clarity FCEV is supposed to be available in the UK very soon. It was supposed to be available, late 2018, but that doesn't look likely! I think we could be lucky to see it in 2019, unless Honda's BEV knocks it into the long grass.

sounds like the clutch is on the way out, all models have a hydraulic clutch so no adjustment is available

I really like the Mazda CX3, if I was ever in the market for a compact SUV it would definitely be on the list.

The Seat Arona looks too narrow, Seat's current styling is all about the proportions, that's why it works in the Ibiza/Leon. I like the idea of no options that Seat is now taking, makes the cars more attractive to those who normally buy Asian cars. VW spent too long trying to convince us Seat was a sports brand when really they should be positioned it against Kia and Mazda - makers of stylish and well-equipped cars.

The current 1.5L engine/trim combo rules out another Jazz for me. The Civic is a contender though. Nothing will change my love for Honda, but sometimes we have to be realistic about what cars suit our needs.

Honda Jazz Mk1 2002-2008 / High Clutch Pedal?!

Hi All,

2002 MK1 Se Sport.

It seems my clutch pedal bites high because it takes forever after placing my foot down all the way and then releasing it to find the bite point. I was wondering if I can adjust this myself to make it bite lower down?

Thanks in advance.

Add to that the problem of storing Hydrogen at high pressure at the filling station and  in a vehicle it becomes a bit of a nonsense.
Compressed gas is currently stored by industry, all over the UK, and daily transported by trucks, vans and cars, up and down our road system, so I don't think that is a valid reason for not having FCEVs!


Hydrogen fuel cell cars have been around for a long time, most motor manufacturers have produced concept cars, and some even leased them to people ( would not sell them ) but they have never been more than a testbed.  Lots more ways of storing hydrogen than as a pressurised gas though https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hydrogen_storage
but fuel cells run incredibly hot and hydrogen tanks on vehicles could easily explode - there is also energy required to compress hydrogen, normally 10% of the energy contained in the hydrogen.  Specific energy of hydrogen is also a lot less than hydrocarbons, ( as is pretty much everything except plutonium ).

UK may have their own GPS system by then and not the EU one
GPS in the UK is currently owned and operated by the US

From the OS web site: GPS (Global Positioning System) is a satellite-based positioning and navigation system owned and operated by the US Department of Defense. Access is free for all users and the service is available 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. GPS is an all weather system that works anywhere in the world. GPS can give an instantaneous, real-time position to within approximately 10m using a single handheld receiver.

Well aware that we use American satellites at present but EU has plans for their own system that we are already involved in and have contributed well over a billion Euro to, but EU then said UK could no longer access the more secret parts after B..X.T - so UK is looking at building their own system, but Americans say we are more than welcome to continue using their infrastructure, at least we found our who our real friends are  :o
