Re: Juddering trans or misfire???

When the engine is cold under light acceleration from 1500 rpm to 2500 rpm in 3 rd or 4th gear there is a judder or misfire. ......... Today they phoned up and said it was our driving style, we should leave the car in 2nd gear upto 30 mph, ie about 3600 rpm then we wouldn’t have a problem!! My HR-V...

Re: Software update

(note to self next time if it ain't broke don't fix it!! ) :lol: Your experience helps to explain why the dealers normally only do the software updates if the customer reports a problem which an update is expected to fix. These bugs and glitches can be awkward to troubleshoot if they only happen oc...

Re: Hrv diesel EP flashing

Honda's basic engineering is very good and the problems tend to be caused by small components such as sensors which are made to others and the source will depend on the location of the Honda factory. Some of the early Mexican-assembled HR-Vs had problems similar to yours but the more recent HR-Vs so...

Re: 18/68 plate made in Japan?

Having said all that, the performance of the diesel is very good. We get 60+ on a run and c.50 town driving. We don't drive for speed any anymore, only economy! If you need the speed/acceleration on occassion the diesel still has it. Oh! Nearly forgot - we drive it in economy mode all the time! My ...

If you want to know what could be done to improve the sound-proofing then read what someone did to a Jazz [url]https://clubjazz.org/forum/index.php?topic=11128.0[/url] .

Re: Help newbie, road noise

Aside from tyre noise on certain surfaces I've found my HR-V to be quite quiet unless the engine gets revved (ie above about 3,000 rpm). I normally cruise along with the engine ticking over between 1500 and 2000 rpm when the tachometer is the best guide that the engine is running. Tyre noise was the...

Re: Jack and wheel brace

You got me worried when I went to check my HR-V as I struggled to find my jack! It's at the back of the cubby hole in the right side of the boot and the jack is hidden by the compressor. Did you look far enough? I've also got a proper wheel wrench with telecopic handle in the spare wheel well as I'v...

Re: Carpet Issues

I've never had problems of carpet wear either in the HR-V or other vehicles. Have your shoes got square corners on the soles/heels?
