Thirsty jazz hits sour note
I have a 2012 1.3-litre Honda Jazz Vibe that is using 10.0L/100km. This compares to the 5.0L/100km I got from my previous Jazz. The Honda people stated that it might improve after 5000km6000km and suggested using premium unleaded for a short period. If this doesn’t improve fuel consumption they suggest resetting sensors. Have you heard of this problem?
John, email Not specifically but the people who told you that it might improve after 5000km-odd are having a lend of you. And using premium for a short period? Give me a break. Take the car back and demand they fix it. Honda claims it will do 6.6L/100km and, while the published fuel consumption is for comparison purposes, the real-life result should be close to that figure. Yours is way off the mark. Something is wrong with it.
Bad Vibe: A Honda Jazz should return nearer 6.0L/100km than 10L
