Just watched Nicola Sturgeon being interviewed by Naga on "Breakfast" this morning. She acquitted herself very well and Naga's argumentative interview style didn't phase her at all. She is a very accomplished public speaker. Not like the deer in the headlights approach of Oliver Dowden on last nights No10 update.

Hi to everyone.
I've been silently watching these forums for a number of years but I've finally got myself a Jazz EX CVT to replace my 2016 Civic 1.4 Sport. We also have a 2016 CR-V 1.6 iDTEC SE which we bought new and the family love it.
I originally wanted a Jazz in 2016 but the Honda salesman gave me a really cracking deal on the Civic as it was due to be replaced by the current model. The Civic was fine but it was a little underpowered, especially loaded up so I finally got the Jazz I wanted. Loving it at the moment and due to following the forum I was aware of the little niggle areas, the only problem I have is the start/stop doesn't work even after charging the battery, disconnecting the battery but as it's a pain I'm not too bothered about it.

Welcome to forum, plenty of good advice to be found on here.

The 1.4 Civic was always going to be under-powered with same engine as Jazz in a heavier car.  My sister in law got a 1.4 Civic as well ( against my advice ) and was less than overwhelmed by the 'performance'....

If I had a stop start car I would love it if the stop-start did not work,  I find it so annoying ( but I also find other tech in modern cars annoying ) - I guess you need a pre-flight cockpit check list like a pilot goes through to turn everything off before every trip - its getting a bit like those ever more tortuous pop-ups on websites where you have to disable cookies that you don't want .

Can't really add much to the above, especially if you are capable of doing the servicing yourself - at least you can guarantee it's being done correctly. I'm not sure what a warranty on a 10 year old car will cost, or what it would cover, but they have to make a profit in the long run... I know the I-shift has its problems, but as far as cars of that age go, the Hondas are about as reliable as it gets.

For recovery, we use AutoAid, 60 for full cover anywhere within the UK, including recovery to any destination of your choice, home start, accommodation or onward travel, etc., and covers both you and a spouse/partner in any vehicle. No haggling every year, like you have to with AA/RAC, everyone pays the same price - new or existing customers.

My Mk1 has plastic fixings all round. As long as you know what to do they are easy to remove and even easier to replace.

Yes, I tried charging it with the CTEK MX5.0 connected to the earth strap (I had do this with the Civic from time to time so I knew about the battery sensor). A few days later I disconnected the battery and charged the battery again, it only took a couple of hours to charge right up.
I have a similar battery maintainer which I use with my HR-V (same stop-start system) but leave it connected for several hours after the green light shows. I found that only giving a top-up until the green light doesn't put enough juice into the battery to satisfy the stop-start system's requirements. It's designed to be very fussy to ensure instant restarting in traffic.

Hi John

The Civic used to stop working for weeks then just start working again when it felt like it. I'm hoping the Jazz might do the same eventually.

Welcome.  :)

Did you charge the battery a second time after the disconnection / reconnection? Also don't connect the charger directly to the -ve terminal but to the earth strap. That rectangular box between the earth strap and the terminal is the "intelligent" battery sensor which tells the ECU how much power is flowing to / from the battery.

I have a 2009 I-shift, 102000 miles. The gear box broke down needing a repair at 80k miles. Thanks to members here, was recommended to a specialist for 340. Otherwise, nothing has been changed apart from wear and tear items. So rather than spending on a warranty policy, save the money and use it for servicing. I used both Honda and independent garage for servicing. I find the former not trust worthy, saying my shocks needing replacement when they didn't. The latter seems more honest and better value. Ask the dealer what the final service involves, but usually the Air Filter, Pollen Filter and brake fluid change may be included.

I m.using GEM Motorassist which is good value as it covers home start, amongst other services. They use local garages but this means they arrive quickly and were friendly from past experiences.
