What I'd like to know is, is the 2017 MK4 1.5 vtec even better ??
1.5 litres with a CVT could be a pretty hot car in the right hands. I hope that option is available although it might attract some of the undesirable types :)

Not sure it’s available yet, the Honda website has a “coming soon” publicity splash for it ...

... but when you click through to the main Jazz website ...

... you just get the old specs and prices.

Honda Jazz Mk1 2002-2008 / Re: Gearbox shot.

Was out for a bit of a run yesterday, so once car was well warmed up I gave it a bit of a - for me - thrash. Several times I took it up over 4000 rpm and even as high as 4400 rpm! A quick blast along the Regional Road at 70+ completed the trip. Well, this morning the gearbox is considerably quieter than it has been. Not fixed by any manor of means but WAY quieter than usual. Perhaps the sudden shock has jolted the swarf out of the input bearing.

Hi all. Thanks for your help so far. My latest news is :-

Paddington Bore ..  I am wrong about it running hot and when driven with the Air Con Off display the fan does not come on every few seconds. With the heater on and not displaying any A/C sign it does come on so to stop this make sure it is showing the A/C OFF on the display. So yours should works like mine. Try it.

VicW.....Thanks and what you say is bang on. I have only had the car for 5+ years and just worked out you have to make sure that the display must show A/C OFF as all other settings seem to have the cooling fans kicking on and off all the time. Thanks again.

harry22673.....I have done this and the car pulls away in harmony with the revs. I have also tested the clutch and it does not slip.

ldd724.....    My latest report is I have had OBD2 check and nothing is showing up. I am going to wait for weather to improve and treat the engine to a good dose of redex and drive it like someone normal and not the tight pensioner that I am. If no improvement then I will be going for a full diagnostics test. I will report back with the results.

Hi all, checking my tyres they look a bit threadbare, well at least 2 of them do. I passed the mot recently so they must be just about ok, however, I've got 2-3 hundred quid to spare, and this weather has made me think about changing all 4 of them for new ones. Would really appreciate some recommendations on what to get? Not looking for budget, tyres but also not top end tyres either. Just mid range, and if poss, best place to have them done?  I'm currently in Stockport. Any help appreciated,. My tyres are 175-65. R14 82T

Try ATSEuromaster.  I have always found then very good - 3 pages of tyres for your Jazz,  After years of doing high mileage and using Michelin ES (which wear well) after I retired I got some Avon tyres for my Civic,  they grip well,  are very quiet but I cannot comment how well they wear,  but they are made by a British company (Avon are based in Somerset hence the 'Avon' - maybe for river Avon)

Honda Jazz Mk3 2015 - / Re: The first signs of winter..

Minus six C this morning, a clear sky, frosty, and a hint of fog. My Jazz started immediately at the first turn of the key and ran normally. The steering wheel was a bit cold though!
I haven't started mine since Friday as I was working from home today. We'll see how it starts tomorrow I suppose. Still - so far it's doing nothing particularly untoward which is nice but I'm curious as to why. I've just checked here and I was still whinging about it last February after my service so it doesn't look like anything the dealer could have done.

Tomorrow will be interesting for other reasons - I'll probably find out how this version of the Jazz performs on ice. Previous ones were a bit 'rev happy' and this one has a torque converter that apparently gives more low-end power which isn't what you want on ice :-/

I do a high mileage, and found Michelin Energy Savers are the best value for grip and duration. I get mine from www.blackcircles.com once you have bought the tyres, you can then choose the tyre fitters that can fit the locally. I pay £70 a tyre, you will find cheaper but will they last as long or grip as well?
