« on: January 29, 2020, 08:58:24 AM »
Jazz still in warranty until May then going into used car warranty whatever that means ?   However need to replace pads and was wondering if I fit Honda pads and get a local mechanic to fit will it void the warranty?   Ty.

Hi Roddy0000

I can't answer your question re warranty, but I'm just wondering why you need to change the pads on a 3 year old car.
How many miles has the car done?
I usually change at around 3 years old with circa 30k miles on the clock and have never had to change pads on any of the 4 Jazz cars I have had.

When my warranty ran out a year ago, the dealer did an MOT for 35 in conjunction with a service (5 year plan), and then offered continuing roadside assistance cover (AA) for a year.  I have just done the same again after 4 years.  There was no mention of used car warranty.  Brake pads OK after 40,000 miles, with front marked "50" , % I assume.

I am pretty sure you can get an extension of the new car warranty but you have to pay for this. The used car warranty is what Honda offer on all their approved used cars that are out of the manufacturers warranty period. Sometimes there is an overlap. My 2013 Jazz was just under 3 years old so I was covered by the manufacturers warranty for 6 months (iirc) then it merged into a used car warranty for the remaining 6 months.

This is my 3rd jazz and have never replaced the pads, this one has only done 21000 but did not have it the first year so could have been a heavy footed driver on the brakes I guess.   Think I want 2nd opinion before change.

Take it the dealer told you they needed replacing.

Rang the dealer for clarification, got to pay 400 for one year extra warranty or 700 for 2 years but after a bit of digging asking the right questions offered me free breakdown for a year as I have my car serviced with them.  Not interested in the warranty of course at that price.

FWIW when I looked at Honda's used vehicle warranty there was clear cover for mechanical problems but no mention of cover for the electrical / electronic problems which are the main source of unreliability in recent vehicles.
