Honda Jazz Mk1 2002-2008 / Re: Snow test
« Last post by jazzway on December 13, 2017, 10:16:55 PM »
In the Netherlands we also had winter weather with more than enough snow to make nice xmas photos.
And when the neighbour was still trying to get his bmw from the driveway, our Jazz was already long gone. While finally on the road he needed both sides.  He - big alloys with summer low-profile tires for the looks, we - 15" steel wheels with Michelin Alpin tires. I really don't understand those people, he was a danger on the road!

Honda Jazz Mk2 2008-2015 / Re: Tyres! Winter or All Season?
« Last post by Defender on December 13, 2017, 08:16:09 PM »
Well my Cooper WM SA2's are still doing a sterling job, I didn't even bother to swap them over in the spring for the 16" summer set, as I'm doing fewer car miles now, much less than 2k since the MOT in May.
Still unsure as to what to do when they wear out, but judging by the performance over the last couple of days I'll stick with a full winter set, my nextdoor neighbour was well impressed with the grip, where his Q3 Quattro failed to work at all!
The only slight issue was found clearance, as the undertray was scrapping on the snow.

Lets have a survey about the Honda UK will impose on customers for this version of Jazz Sport ...
My estimate would be + 1.5k
Will it be popular 4% of sales

Hello!

I own a 2017 make Honda Jazz in India. I am interested in trying an HUD for my car.
However, I am not even sure it is possible. Could you kindly let me know if my car is ODB2 compliant? I have read many posts and articles and they all say it is but haven't come across any official document yet.
Next, if it is, is there an OBD2 port under the steering wheel (like most articles on the internet have claimed) or somewhere I can access? I tried looking for one and could really not find it anywhere.

And, finally, if my car does have an OBD2 port and if I attach an after market/ unbranded HUD device which claims to display tons of things on the windscreen, are these devices just read only? I mean, they just receive data and display OR do they also try to act smart and change some things in my car? I have read people say "the initial pickup increased, the mileage got better" etc and that got me worrying.

Thanks for your help.

As I understand it when this was brought up, the excuse was that the 1.5 engine did not meet EU emissions. Is this new 1.5 a 'new' engine or have they just fudged around with the existing unit.
Also was or is the 1.5 unit available in the Antipodes along with the USA?
My guess is that it will be the 1.5 litre engine as in the HR-V, perhaps slightly de-rated. The HR-V's engine is a big contrast to the 1.3 in the Mk 3 Jazz. Combined with the CVT transmission it's a very smooth motor without the Atkinson cycle tweak.

I found GD Jazz pretty good on snow with 175/65R14 summer tyres,  Wifes GE with 185/55R16 wheels was not nearly as good,  about the same as my Civic with 205/55R17 summer tyres (more power in Civic was also problem, although easier to pull away in second gear).

Wifes GE and my Civic with Nokian WR-D3 winters are absolutely great,  used pretty much every day we had recent snow in Shropshire (and we had a boatload) - on one run over Shropshire hills only other vehicles I saw were Landrovers Defenders and tractors,  I could re-start on snow covered hills no problem - I went up roads I would never have attempted  with summer tyres (in fact I would probably have stayed at home).    Saw a few 4x4 obviously over confident on their summer tyres with wheels spinning but going nowhere,  and laughed at some BMW's LOL........

Been an eye opener for me about difference between summer and winter tyres.

Honda Jazz Mk1 FAQ / Re: The infamous EGR valve problem (Honda Jazz 2002-2008)
« Last post by basquejazzster on December 13, 2017, 03:31:40 PM »
I have blanked off the EGR valve with a blanking plate. I am selling my car and twice after canceling a p1491 error - insufficient valve lift - it has come back. I have now cleaned the valve and am worried it will come back and show the engine error light. Has this happened to anyone else, any tips? Maybe the solenoid is stuck and the egr valve needs a good knock to dislodge the valve? The judder I had was definitely the egr valve because when I unplugged the valve it went away immediately and it seems to runs really well with the blanking plate on. Thanks!

When Honda were building the second generation Jazz at Swindon, alongside the UK market production line Honda were building a 1.5 engined version for South Africa, what was a bit like rubbing salt in the wound was that it was being fitted with a proper automatic transmission.
As I understand it when this was brought up, the excuse was that the 1.5 engine did not meet EU emissions. Is this new 1.5 a 'new' engine or have they just fudged around with the existing unit.
Also was or is the 1.5 unit available in the Antipodes along with the USA?
I would imaging it is a derivative of the L15Z range of Honda engines, used in many vehicles since 2014. Engines tend to have extremely long runs due to the cost and complexity of design and development. Like the BMC A series engine, produced from 1951 - 2000 or the B series from 1954 to 1980. Or the Ford Kent, from 1959 - 2002.

For most of my motoring the current engines are fine. If I did a lot of motorway work I'd want more power. I guess the 1.5 will widen the customer base a bit.

Unfortunately with more Scots Porage Oats between my ears than grey matter I could well have transposed 's for cents. Sometimes he speaks in Canadian and sometimes in English so Kilometres and Miles Dollars and Pounds etc.
I will Email him  and ask him for the latest price. It might be few days as he travels quite large distances. He sent me earlier this year photos of a 'Dude' ranch where was shoeing in the Rockies. He lives on Vancouver Island and I think it was a commute of about 200 miles each way. On the other hand he might be snowed in.
He told me the fuel is cheap as it is produced from the Alberta tar sand fields so it is a home grown product and as an aside my late Father in Law lived in a log cabin in Alberta Canada on a 'farm' which his Father got from the Canadian government, where the land had to be cleared in one year. Seen photos etc  He used to tell us of the oil in the water where he lived. He was born elsewhere but three of his Brothers were born in the cabin. He came back to the UK in 1922, I say back as His Mother was born in England and married an German in Canada. Real out back days. Snow, he said in 1969 when a large dollap fell on Cornwall, he had not seen snow like it since Canada.
