Honda & Other Honda Models / Re: Honda e

Not happy at all with the single pedal control.

After 65 years of driving, it is an automatic reaction to step on the brake in an emergency situation.
Can you imagine the result of doing that in a single pedal car? it's the the exact opposite to a conventional car and in my opinion extremely dangerous!
What happens if you slide your foot sideways off the pedal, do you get maximum braking, limited maybe by ABS?

As Jocko say's, it's a throwback to 1979 or thereabouts, too expensive, not impressed at all.

I don’t know about the Honda but the Nissan Leaf single pedal system still has a separate brake pedal for emergencies and stopping quickly. It can also be turned off and used like a conventional automatic

Honda Jazz Mk1 2002-2008 / Re: Washer Bottle Leak?

Water level constant overnight, presumably this means there's no problem with the pump seals or connection to water bottle.

Gave the washers a good blasting and all working fine.

Refilled the water bottle to the top to see if there's any drop in water level.

Fingers crossed!  ;)

Almost identical apart from the smoothed edges.

I've picked my one.



It is only available in Black, Gray, Blue, Yellow, and White. Yellow is the standard colour. The rest attract a 500 premium.

I must say that looks almost identical to my first Honda Civic in 1979!

Honda & Other Honda Models / Honda's latest catalogues of cars

I see that Honda's latest catalogues of cars still includes the Jazz Sport, as well as including the new Honda e.

Dealers & Insurance / Re: Lots of Honda dealers to close.
« Last post by Rory on September 11, 2019, 10:11:22 AM »
At a time when they're expanding the range you'd think they'd want to keep as many dealers as possible.

Not surprised they have to pay though - in a survey of franchise holders, Honda was voted the worst one to have.  Honda UK MD went absolutely bonkers and I noticed recently they were "most improved" - I wonder how much the dealers were lent onto provide the right answers.

Honda Jazz Mk1 2002-2008 / Re: Gearbox Oil Change - Important or not?

If I recall correctly you need a 17mm socket for fill plug ( full hexagon socket is better then the 12 point ones as less likely to round off the nut ) and the drain plug is 1/2" square ( you can use the end of a socket wrench directly ).  As said above remove the fill plug first as if you drain oil out and cannot get fill plug out you are up the creek without a paddle......  with car on the level you just need to pour oil in until it starts to dribble back out,  the bottom of fill plug is the oil level...

Dealers & Insurance / Re: Lots of Honda dealers to close.

I popped into my local Honda dealer, this morning, for a look round (I had an errand next door), and I was talking to the salesman about the number of Honda dealers closing. He said it was to do with the switch to Hybrids and EVs, and the expensive training required for staff. It would appear the dealer has to pay for that, not Honda.
