Honda Jazz Mk3 2015 - / Re: Protecting Keyless Entry?

I find the whole idea of having to use a specially shaped piece of metal to open a door archaic. And even the idea of pressing a button now seems quaint.

Exactly what I think and said to the salesman ... why are we using a piece of metal to open & start the car. I understand the security risk and other peoples preferences.. I just prefer not handling a key if the tech is available not too.

Honda Jazz Mk3 2015 - / Honda Jazz Mk3 USA version...

Just found this review on USA version. Apple CarPlay and 1.5 engine in the standard body... I dont know why in the UK we have to be restricted. That car reviewed minus the leather would be the perfect Jazz for me.  ???

Honda Jazz Mk2 2008-2015 / Re: Jazz discs and pads

Returned to this old thread because I've actually made enquiries about the cost of the parts in preparation for doing the job. I usually opt for Mintex or Pagid, but some temporary cashflow problems have obliged me to look for a cheaper alternative.

My local parts supplier does ADL pads and National discs, and when I said that I'd never heard of either brand, they assured me that they've had no negative feedback. I wondered whether any forum users have ever fitted them, and how they'd rate the quality?

A full set of National front discs and ADL pads is 76.30 inc VAT.

I used to have a motor factor company and we used to sell both brands, never having a problem with either of them. ADL Blueprint are part of the Bilstein group,(of shock absorber fame), and specialise in parts for Japanese and Korean vehicles.
National Auto Parts are a British company based in Derbyshire and specialise in Brake and Clutch parts.

It's a boy racer's car for people on a reduced income.

Basically: It's a toy, built down to a price.

Wow do you realise how snobbish you sound ?

Personally as someone who thinks cars have become too complicated and too expensive (and those two are linked) I would not mind a simpler car with better performance.

He can't be a snob, he only has a superseded EX model.  :-)

As I said above, an improved SE with the bigger engine, my ideal car. The only downside is the bodykit. As you are a self confessed gadget  addict does your EX have the ultimate gadget, a CVT? It is far easier to use and is more efficient than a DIY gearbox.

I think andruec was referring to it being the runt of the facelift models litter.

And sounds like someone who has not driven one.
I don't need to. The official specification shows it to be lacking a number of features available on higher spec models. Honda have clearly removed some features in order to try and keep the price down. It's a boy racer's car for people on a reduced income. If all you care about is performance (pointless on a road car on today's roads) then it's a reasonable choice. But if you want something with features that are actually useful you need to look elsewhere at the better specified models in the range.

DIY Guides / Re: Rough Running a decoke?
« Last post by culzean on May 27, 2018, 03:36:47 PM »
Carboning up, particularly inlet valves seems to be a pretty big problem on direct injection petrol engines, and VAG are some of the worst.  My brother just got rid of his less than two year old  Skoda for this and other reasons to do with its reliability to date, he is getting a Suzuki Vitara as a replacement - I know Suzuki make good reliable engines but am  a bit concerned where the actual cars are made* (they have a tie up with Maruti in India that makes some models).   Modern clean refined fuels were supposed to make decoking a thing of the past, and I am convinced that a vehicle that is never revved much may still suffer from it, and I put my trust in Italian tuneup and regularly going past 3000 revs as a means to keep engine and CAT healthy.

*checked and the Vitara is made in Hungary.
