Honda Jazz Mk3 2015 - / Re: RE HONDA 1.5 JAZZ SPORT CVT
« Last post by Skyrider on May 22, 2018, 12:12:33 PM »
I agree that cruise control can require intervention in the congested South to the point that it is not worth using, but I live well north of all that hassle. Driving to road conditions will dictate  whether it is worth using. Being a regular user makes it easier to use, a bit of practice makes most things easier. :-)

Honda Jazz Mk2 2008-2015 / Re: 2012 EX - best tyres?

It is cheaper to get 15" alloys (or certainly no more expensive) and buy 175/65R15 tyres which are much more widely available,  much better choice at half the price of 185/55R16 expensive lumps, and every time you replace tyres in future you save 50 or 60.  As a bonus car rides much better on 15" tyres.   Why Honda chose to fit such a funny size tyre is beyond me.

We run our older EX on 15" wheels with Michelin Alpin winter tyres year round.  I think the tyres were about 60 and they last well.

Looking at the choices for 185/55 16 on one of the online sites I must admit I was amazed at the choice - when we got the first EX there were literally only 3 choice.  Now tyres from many of the "mid-range" brands are there - people like Vredestein, Kumho and Kleber. 

I'm running All Seasons on my Merc from the first two (it has different sizes front and rear and no one manufacturer did both in All Season).   I can't tell the difference between them and the Michelin Primacy's I had on before.

Honda Jazz Mk1 2002-2008 / New to CVT transmission - need advice...
« Last post by JazzMan2018 on May 22, 2018, 12:01:49 PM »
Hi,

2006 1.4 Sport CVT

Very pleased with it but sometimes notice minor judder when geer changes (or adjusts? - do these actually have any gears - CVT after all!)

Normally very smooth so if this usual then I can live with it. Asking in case its a potential sign of trouble/cost to come

Background - 88k miles. 1 previous owner. FSH (mostly Honda). Last serviced 24 months, 15k miles ago.

First thought was CVT oil?

Cheers

Alan

Yes, ice thawing from the air-conditioning, nothing to worry about.

I'm like John A. I put mine on recirc when starting off in the heat and once car has warmed (in the engine) and cooled in the cabin change to fresh air coming in.

Well I had that and it was aircon condensation. Sure that's what it was unless it has screenwash or antifreeze in it :)

Drove up the Cat & Fiddle yesterday (quite a long haul), with aircon on. Stopped at the top for 1 hour. Went back to car and found a small pool of water under the car. Backed up the car and could see a small drip coming from the car.
 Carried on driving another 30 miles home with no warning lights coming on.
Just had a small Honda service 2 weeks ago.

Should I be worried? Could this be condensation from outside air going into the aircon.

2000 Jazz i vtec 99bhp.

Hi Jocko
Do you find the Hazard Perception Test a little strange. When I looked at them I did see the tractor pull out in front of me :) which was correct but I'm not supposed to see the mud on road, blind side turning, horse etc. I saw about 5 hazards before the one I was supposed to report on. It's like stating the obvious as a hazard when after a lot of experience you see things on the road which potentially can be a hazard. I think I would find it hard because it misses so much. I have been an HGV driving assessor, an HGV Driving Instructor as well as a car driver and motorcycle rider.
The old question I used to ask "wet leaves and ice on the road, which will cause the accident?".  :)

Usually use Costco for tyres which suits as I prefer Michelin but they haven't got the Energy Saver in the EX size (185/55R16) and the system wont let them order it.

I looked at a couple of the online places and there are various speed and load ratings available but only one place had the 83H and they were 130!

Bit flummoxed now - usually I don't have to think about, just buy Michelin.  Costco did offer Goodyear.
