Re: Is there a next generation HRV coming

I was wondering if there's more info about the next generation HR-V and found this https://www.indiacarnews.com/news/all-new-honda-hr-v-coming-next-year-with-a-coupe-like-design-38127/ . There will have to be something new by 2022 to satisfy Honda's announcement that all it's offerings in Europe wil...

Re: Hello from Hadleys Taxi!

Two ways to access some extra power with the CVT are (i) A tug or two on the left paddle as well as a firm push with the right foot and/or (ii) put the gear shift into S. The former is better for economy as the powertrain will revert to what it thinks is the most efficient setting once pressure on t...

Re: Hello from Hadleys Taxi!

Hi, yes our auto I think I can say is more at home making 'comfortable' progress rather than 'spirited' driving. A good description. And you should find that this also gives fairly economical driving (once the engine has warmed up). However, if more power is needed it's there when you up the revs -...

Re: USB Ports Not Charging Accessories

The retractable cable most likely has thinner conductors and hence can't deliver enough power to keep the TomTom happy. If you only need a 60cm (for example) cable then look on ebay. I'm 99.9% sure that all the 12V sockets power down when the vehicle is switched off. Otherwise there's the risk of a ...

Re: USB Ports Not Charging Accessories

I use the left USB port for a flash drive for playing music (as shown in the handbook) while the right USB port has no problem powering my 6" TomTom satnav. It's posslble that the left port has a low power rating. If neither USB port will power the satnav then there's something wrong with your vehic...

Re: Sat Nav inaccurate

I'm impressed by how quickly modern phones can get an accurate position but I think they do an initial fix using the phone masts and also download the latest satellite data so they know which satellites to look for given the approximate location. A simple sat-nav system doesn't have this help. It's ...

Re: Faulty AF2 Sensor Vs ER06 recall (Excess accumulation of Sulphur in the Catalyst)

If the AF2 sensor is in the same part of the system as the catalyst then I think you have a strong case for claiming recompense from Honda as it appears that the ECU settings were resulting in an excess of sulphur which has damaged components not designed for such operating conditions. Another possi...

Re: 1.5l turbo direct injection queries

I recall seeing some discussion which indicated that the oil dilution problem was a consequence of using a rich mixture in very cold conditions (North American winter) which resulted in unburnt fuel getting into the lubrication system. I haven't read about any problems with injectors and valves soot...
