I never received a letter, so I assume it was sent to the previous owner who no doubt ignored it... like they ignored everything else with this car  >:(

If that is the case, you need to inform Honda UK to tell them your the new owner of the car, possible same reasopn with mine and my parents jazz, not one letter yet!

I spoke to Honda and they said they are working on sending the second letter.......

I would check on the Honda website and go to the recall section, input the VIN number and see what needs addressing.

Failing that just go to a  Honda dealer and ask them.

Just got my jazz in late November and came to the forum looking for views on premium unleaded vs regular. So glad I did because I saw this in the news section.

Obviously didn't get a letter because Honda didn't know I owned the car. Booked in for 2 weeks time.

Thanks Club Jazz!

You're welcome :)

If anyone else reading this has just purchased a Mk1 Jazz (51 to 09 plate) within the last few months and is unsure if the work has been carried out, phone your local Honda dealer or Honda UK (http://www.honda.co.uk/contactus/) with your registration number (and VIN just to save time) and they should be able to tell you.

The recalls page on the Honda website (http://www.honda.co.uk/cars/owners/you-and-your-car/updates-and-recalls/) will probably only tell you if the car is recall affects your car (which it will), not if the work has been completed.

That's odd. I had the switch done a couple of months ago and inputting the number into that link was expecting it to show appropriate recall, but it says no work required on your car.

So perhaps they do know when work is done.

cars setting on fire is not solely a Honda problem - when we lived in Oz a friend had his Ford Laser spontaneously combust and car was totalled (luckily he wasn't in it).  Also Ford USA have seen recent problems with their eco-boost engines.

To be fair to Honda, this problem can show up if water has got into the drivers door window control switches,  which can happen if water is spilled onto the switches or if the window is left open in a rainstorm - both pretty unlikely.  Basically this problem may also exist on other car makes as well,  as car makers buy in electrical parts from specialist makers and this circuit board is liable to appear in quite a few other cars.

Quite right. At least with Honda (and Toy**a) they are honest enough to do a recall, unlike certain European and US makes. Both our window switches have been done quickly whilst we waited and with polite and pleasant service.

Didn't Renault deny the Clio had a problem with it's bonnet until it ended up on Watchdog?

i think that Fords problem with ECU on Focus also ended up on watchdog about 10 years ago, seem to remember that the engine could cut out suddenly at any time, and after a few crashes and a tragedy (may have been on Porlock Hill in Somerset) where the engine cut out and brakes also lost power and a car went off the road - Ford would not admit any problem until Watchdog forced them to.  Also VW - Audi had a major problem with ignition coils failing and stranding people and they had to be dragged kicking and screaming to admit this as it would have involved a recall and millions of coils being replaced.  The Japanese seem to admit they have a problem voluntarily and do recalls. I also think that BMW have quite a few outstanding problems that should have triggered recalls - but did not.
