HR-V is one of the 'other manufacturers' vehicles under scrutiny over emissions as a result of VW cooking the books (well incinerating them really by pumping extra urea into DPF when software detects 'testing mode').

Some people will only consider you an expert if they agree with your point of view or advice,  when you give them advice they don't like they consider you an idiot

I get that you don't like diesels. Not sure how this would affect me as a private buyer. I drove the petrol and the diesel and the latter was just more responsive and pulled better on the steep hills where I live. I have driven diesels since 2001 with the exception of my current Jazz, and I have had none of the mechanical issues you mention elsewhere, so I reckon I'll take my chances. What's the worst case? My Road Tax might go up from 20 to 110 like it is now on my Jazz?

If it has to be adjusted to meet emissions it may lose some punch and fuel economy may suffer slightly.
I will be surprised and disappointed if Honda are involved in the scandal.

Story isn't over yet,  after Volkswagen-gate governments may well introduce a NOx tax,  and guess what no diesel engine yet made (or likely to be made) will be able to meet even todays lax standards (maybe in the laboratory,  but not in real life) - when huge car makers like Toyota and Honda label Diesel technology as 'a dead end emissions wise'  and Europe (which ignored them and went head first down that dead end) excludes them from emission talks because of their 'bad attitude' - well 'Houston. we have a problem'.

I can think of only one reason for you to keep raising this in this thread, and that would be to take the edge off my shiny new car. Well, thanks for that.

The U.K. Government have said they will not punish UK car buyers for anything a manufacturer has done. Why don't we leave it at that and discuss diesel technology in a diesel technology thread where people can find the subject, rather than here where we are discussing our new cars.

Hi,
