On my RAV4 you push the light stalk forward for main beam, and it is automatic if the lights are already set to automatic. Thereís a full beam with an A icon that shows up on the dash, and an additional blue light to show when full beam is actually on. If your lights are on manual then main beam is also on manual. Makes sense really.

First impressions:Very, very positive.

She handles well (far better over bumps) and has quite noticeably more poke if you ask for it. Very comfortable to drive and everything feels just that little bit better put together.

Things I like: The electronic handbrake, especially since you can have it come on when you stop and leave the car in D - no more blinding people behind with my lights. The dashboard - a geek's paradise. I broke my own rule and went with built-in sat nav and it shows the next turning in the middle of the dash when you're close (it can also appear on the main screen if you want of course). Otherwise the dash shows whatever you've got as your preference (I went with fuel consumption information). Adaptive cruise control is wonderful.

Things I don't like: Nothing really. I wasn't able to work out how to turn on automatic main beam. It looks like the cruise control switches off every time you stop the engine. So you first have to turn it on then set the speed. View out of the rear window is a bit restrictive. I had to rearrange my garage because although it fits width/length the bonnet is longer so I need to get the car right up to the back wall leaving no room for my shelves in order to clear the support pillars.

Fuel economy:A little disappointing perhaps with a reported 61mpg on a practice run to work and back but it's a new engine and if that figure manages to hold up when doing the journey for real in rush hour that's not bad. My Jazz would probably manage 50mpg doing the same journey at the moment.

Auto Trader has 15 (only one private sale), from £3.9K to £6.5K. £7K would need to be extra special for me.

The ignition barrel is the only real issue & that doesn't stop anything working. I tried today & I can actually remove the key in EVERY position.. Yes I can take the key out with the engine running??

Not sure where that stands with an mot but it's just passed one with no advisories.

the 6 seat belt bleeps when the ignition it turned on.
Don't be tempted to remove the key when the engine is running. Once you remove the key the steering lock can come on!
Ignition key has nothing to do with MOT.
Fasten your seat belt before you turn the ignition on!! Problem solved.

Hi all really need some advice am upgrading from 08 plate as itís had itís day. So local Honda dealer have 1.2 engine 2013 plate up for 7k with 3 year servicing and 5 year guarantee. Iíve been looking at other dealers prices and there no more than 6k. I am generally happy with the offer but I worry that after 5 years the car is not gonna be worth much and I canít decide what to do

Thanks again fellas.. The car had a service just 20 miles prior to going sorn.. Everything looks & feels fine. The brakes were all replaced (discs & pads) prior to sale & they look like new. It brakes well & the tyres are like new too. In fact, I can't imagine it driving much better when it was new... For what I paid for it, it's an absolute steal. The ignition barrel is the only real issue & that doesn't stop anything working. I tried today & I can actually remove the key in EVERY position.. Yes I can take the key out with the engine running?? Not sure where that stands with an mot but it's just passed one with no advisories.. It's averaging about 50mpg combined.. The only thing I wish it had was air con, as it was warm today... & the only thing I wish if didn't have, is the 6 seat belt bleeps when the ignition it turned on... A couple of nice chimes would be better..lol..

I think the EU will do what it has to do to survive
Yes. Preventing, at all costs, stopping the UK from leaving.

If the UK insists on leaving, I can't see how they can prevent it.

I never expected that they would facilitate it.

It certainly looks like EU, especially Eurozone economies are on a downward track from which there is no recovery anytime soon , if ever.  The EU is mired in bigger problems than Brexit, the Euro is one but over-regulation and uncompetitiveness is another, as I have said before the EU is a 1950's ideology trying desperately to survive in the 21st century

I don't disagree with some of that, there are significant problems within the EU. Where we differ is that I think the EU will do what it has to do to survive, even if it has to reinvent itself, which it may eventually be forced to do.

As things stand, the credit agencies seem to believe that the EU economy as a whole is more fundamentally sound than the UK, and there seems to be a reasonable concensus that not only will the UK need a further fiscal stimulus package in the event of a no-deal brexit, credit ratings for the UK will also be adversely affected.

Thanks very much for that link.  I have been told by a ex-Honda mechanic, that he had never replaced an alternator on a Jazz. In fact he said they 'never' go wrong. I  will now try looking elsewhere as changing the alternator is a big job.
