Good and bad points
« on: August 11, 2018, 10:17:05 PM »
I think the Jazz is a great all rounder
For me - Best features are magic seats and the range of the remote
Not so good - Climate control and accuracy of outside temperature reading

First world problems. If I want it warm I turn the heating up. If I want it cool I turn it down. And if I want to know the outside temperature I open the window and stick my nose out. The joys of owning the base model!

I don't think any vehicle can give a good measurement of outside temperature, particularly in hot weather. The sensor is usually somewhere near the front and vulnerable to (i) being cooked in the sun and (ii) picks up radiation from the road surface which is extra-hot in sunny weather. I think you'll find that it's more accurate in cooler and cloudy weather.

The magic seats are a useful part of the internal packaging which gives internal space similar to many vehicles in a larger size group: Honda's machine minimum - man maximum design ethos.

Worst thing (and about the only bad thing on mine)is trying to check the level in the radiator top up bottle. >:(

I have to unscrew the lid and shine a torch into the bottle. The bottle may be see thru against a bright light, but down in the depths, where it is located, it is all but opaque.

I thought they were "sharp" when I first got the car, not now, they must have trained me well!

I have had my car two years now and they still catch me out, occasionally. You brake, feel they are not stopping as well as you want, apply a bit more pressure, and bam, they are on.
