12 ways to zhng your Vezel without breaking the bank

http://www.sgcarmart...es.php?AID=3360

 

 

3360_p1_s_21.jpg
We haven't seen an invasion like this since the Allies stormed Normandy back in 1944. No, we're not talking about war here, we're talking about the ubiquitous Honda Vezel.

These popular crossovers present themselves at every junction and every turn, making it practically impossible to get through two traffic lights without crossing paths with one of them. Plus, with private-hire services like Uber and Grab offering affordable rental schemes, drivers are now able to 'own' a Vezel at a much lower premium.

This leads to a problem for Vezel owners. How do you stand out in a sea of lookalikes? Fret not, here's a list of 12 affordable items you can pick up to zhng your Vezel and enhance your driving experience.

Scuff plates keep the interior of your door sills in mint condition
1. Scuff plates with LED illumination ($180)

Clumsy passengers in high heels constantly scuffing up your door sills will now be a thing of the past, thanks to Premier Auto Pte Ltd's scuff plates. 

These scuff plates not only keep the interior of your door sills in mint condition by protecting them from dings and dents, they also add a touch of elegance to your sweet-looking ride. Bright blue LED lights built into the scuff plates illuminate the flanges of your Vezel's side body panels for a more aesthetically-pleasing cabin.

Premier Auto Pte Ltd is offering a set of four scuff plates at $180, which includes installation. Check out Premier Auto's Honda Vezel scuff plates.

A boot tray allows you to store items like wet umbrellas and muddy boots
2. Boot tray ($55)

Storing junk in the trunk couldn't be any easier with SgGarage's Honda Vezel boot tray. Mud, grease, sand and other nasty stuff are a pain in the neck to get rid of, especially when they come into contact with a car's interior.

A boot tray allows you to store items like wet umbrellas and muddy boots, keeping foreign particles off the floor of your boot and making the cleaning process a breeze.

It can also be conveniently removed and washed, which is a whole lot easier than working your fingers to the bone trying to remove grease from your boot.

A rear bumper protector protects your boot trim from getting banged up
3. Stainless steel rear bumper protector

Are you constantly loading and unloading heavy equipment? Do you have to be extra cautious when storing heavy items in your boot? 

Panel beating and bodywork can be expensive and time consuming, that's why we've got just the thing for you.

Tri King's rear bumper protector runs the length of the Vezel's rear bumper and is machined from stainless steel, which ensures a durable scuff plate that is able to withstand prolonged abuse. It also adds a rugged off-roader look to your Vezel.

Door visors come in handy for times when you have to crack a window on a rainy day
4. Door visor ($75)

Rain drops are fallin' on my head, they keep fallin'. Clearly, B.J. Thomas had no idea what door visors do. These unassuming pieces of moulded plastic keep rain water out while you have the windows slightly open. They come in handy for times when you have to crack a window if you're feeling cold on a rainy day, or if you just need some fresh air.

SgGarage is selling a set of door visors for $75, which come with corresponding clips. These durable door visors are designed to withstand the rigours of driving and exposure to the elements, and are estimated to last for more than a decade. Find out more about SgGarage's door visor.

Side steps provide an additional platform for passengers
5. Side step ($380)

Getting into an SUV can be challenging at times, especially for the kids and their grandparents, due to a higher ground clearance and larger wheels. The solution? Get a side step for your Vezel.

Side steps are helpful for pint-sized individuals or occupants who are unable to muster up enough strength to take that big step.

Besides providing an additional platform for passengers to board a higher-riding vehicle, a side step also protects car doors and side panels from stones and dirt kicked up by the tyres.

The Steelmate TP-S3E features four anti-theft external sensors with an adjustable alert pressure value range
6. Steelmate TP-S3E External Tyre Pressure Monitoring System

It's common for many drivers to overlook the job of regularly inflating their car tyres since tyres tend to be 'out of sight, out of mind'.

However, properly inflated tyres are safer, give a more comfortable ride and reduce fuel consumption. Couple that with the fact that Honda Vezels do not come with spare tyres, and you have a ticking time bomb waiting to blow.

A quick and easy solution is the Steelmate TP-S3E External Tyre Pressure Monitoring System by ZMC Automotive. It features four anti-theft external sensors with an adjustable alert pressure value range, a flexible display for easy mounting and interchangeable pressure units (bar/PSI). Check out the Steelmate TP-S3E from ZMC Automotive.

A USB hub can help with cable management and charge more smart devices
7. USB port ($40-$100)

Running out of USB ports in your car? Too many of your passengers trying to leech off your car's power? Getting a USB hub can help with cable management while offering a convenient way of charging more smart devices.

SgGarage is offering a USB hub, with a choice of three ports, for the Honda Vezel. The first port connects to Pioneer head units.

The second comprises of two USB ports, which can be used to charge smart devices. And the third features a volt meter, which monitors the health of the car's battery and alternator. Purchase one USB port for $40, two for $70 and three for $100.

The StandartPlast is best suited for areas, which experience maximal vibrations
9. StandartPlast Silver Soundproofing ($45)

Road and wind noise are commonplace in less premium cars like the Honda Vezel and can get tiresome. Not to worry, that can be easily fixed with some soundproofing material.

StandartPlast Silver Soundproofing is made from a flexible multi-layered vibration damping material with a butyl rubber-based polymer layer and an aluminium foil outer surface. It comes with a layer of self-adhesive glue for easy installation.

This flexibility allows the StandartPlast to be applied to uneven surfaces while providing maximum vibration damping and doubling up as a sealant. Its waterproof properties prevent water from coming into contact with the chassis, which protects it from corrosion and rust.

The Xado 1 Stage New Car Atomic Metal Conditioner provides top level engine protection for new cars
12. Xado 1 Stage New Car Atomic Metal Conditioner

If your Vezel is still in the running-in phase, or if you're planning to purchase one in the near future, Xado helps make the entire process a whole lot smoother.

The Xado 1 Stage New Car Atomic Metal Conditioner provides top level engine protection for new cars. It ensures the accurate adjustment of a new engine's parts during the running-in phase and compensates for wear-out during operation.

A common complaint among Vezel drivers is the car's slow acceleration, which will only get worse over time. No matter how well a car is maintained, high heat and friction cause a car's engine to become worn, scratched, and misshapen over time. The Xado Atomic Metal Conditioner Maximum Twin Turbo with 1 Stage Revitalizant heals frictional damage that goes up to 0.2mm in depth, thanks to a Complex Adaptive Revitalizant (CAR). CAR provides anti-wear protection, restoration and surface regeneration.

Hey bro

You just posted that you are targeting a New Vezel for 96k, and you also posted that your friend's almost 2 year old Vezel is going for 90k ??

The maths is a bit off leh  [laugh]

I wouldn't buy a Vezel with optional sensing!! This is because since facelift and Feb 2016 manufacturing date, all Vezels should come with sensing as a standard item / standard feature.

Those saying Sensing is an optional item, and want to package it at an added cost, means their fleet of Vezel is old stock.

Old stock, early Vezels, pre-facelift, pre Feb 2016 manufactured Vezels probably had sensing as an optional feature.

Its normal for buyers to want high price. De facto market standard is, the moment the car leaves the showroom, it depreciates 20% from purchase price.

I have seen brandnew Vezel Hybrid selling at $99,500 but second hand ones with 20,000km and 7months old asking for $93,000.

Willing buyer willing seller i guess. But dealers will only offer $80,000 to $83,000 for under 1 year old Vezel.

I just bought a Vezel Z Hybrid yesterday. Dealer also tried to con me by asking me to pay $2,000 extra for sensing. After I forwarded them an article saying new models come with sensing as standard, they withdrew the $2,000 surcharge

So, all post-facelift Vezels (either Petrol or Hybrid) come with Sensing as standard or as an option?

 

Got PI told me that they have Facelift Vezel without sensing and top up $2k for sensing...

I just bought a Vezel Z Hybrid yesterday. Dealer also tried to con me by asking me to pay $2,000 extra for sensing. After I forwarded them an article saying new models come with sensing as standard, they withdrew the $2,000 surcharge

Who is the dealer that con you

I wouldn't buy a Vezel with optional sensing!! This is because since facelift and Feb 2016 manufacturing date, all Vezels should come with sensing as a standard item / standard feature.

Those saying Sensing is an optional item, and want to package it at an added cost, means their fleet of Vezel is old stock.

Old stock, early Vezels, pre-facelift, pre Feb 2016 manufactured Vezels probably had sensing as an optional feature.

Since facelift / feb 2016 manufacturing date, all Vezels come with sensing as an add on feature from Honda Japan. It's possible to buy a vezel without sensing.

Pre fl and feb 2016 do not have sensing as an optional feature. Honda has not placed sensing into its Vezels till feb 2016 batch.

However, the latest vezels from honda jap seems to have honda sensing as standard.

Thank you for the helpful info on checking Date of Mfr.

As I said, I got the info that all newVezels come with Sensing as standard unless its old stock.

I have the latest Honda Brochure / Catalog from Japan, and the brochure list all Vezels with Sensing. It was also announce during the launch of the RS version in Feb2016, that Honda added sensing to all their Vezel models including the facelifted ones.

Yes bought a Hybrid Z version. My true cost is $9,827 depreciation a year.

Z Hybrid is the most equipped of all Vezels.

Additional equipment versus X and RS version are:

1. 4 automatic windows
2. Roof rack
3. 17 Inch rims (this is perfect size), if go 18 inch on RS version, future tyre repalcement will usually cost around $300 - $400 a pc
4. Hard tonneau cover
5. Extra power / cigarette lighter in boot comparment
6. When put in reverse, the side mirror on left passenger side with auto tilt down for parking

Attached is the link and latest brochure. As you can see, all Vezels come with sensing either Hybrid or Petrol.

Those that used to sell in G trim or S trim is discontinued and obsolete. I still see PIs in turf city trying to push 2014-2015 models.

What is the VIN?

The Vehicle Identification Number, commonly referred to as the VIN, is a sequence of 17 letters and numbers that is uniquely assigned for each vehicle. The VIN can usually be found on the driver's side dashboard near or under the bottom portion of the windshield. It can also be found in various other places on the vehicle, including the certification label found on the driver's doorjamb. 

The VIN provides some information about the vehicle. It is typically composed of four sections. The first three digits are called the World Manufacturer Identifier (WMI). This identifies where the vehicle was manufactured or assembled and the type of vehicle it is. Honda has factories in Japan, Canada, Mexico, and the United States. Each factory has it's own identifying code. For example, a VIN starting with 1HG identifies a passenger vehicle manufactured at Honda of America, while 2HG identifies a passenger vehicle manufactured at Honda of Canada. Honda currently has 10 different manufacturing locations. 

The next five digits (4 through 8) are the Vehicle Description Section (VDS). These digits provide information on the engine type, body style, and vehicle model type. The ninth digit is a check digit used internally. The 10th digit indicates the model year; letters (except "O" and "Z") were used for vehicles up to the 2000 model year while numbers are used for 2001 and newer vehicles. For example, "X" means the 1999 model year, "Y" is the 2000 model year and "1" represents the 2001 model year. The 11th digit is the plant code. Finally, digits 12 - 17 are the serial number, which is unique to each vehicle.

Good day all, 

 

I'm interested in purchasing a Vezel Hybrid. A lot of websites i saw said that the hybrid is more expensive than the regular.. But where I am from(trinidad), the government has actually removed all taxes/import fees/duties etc on hybrid vehicles so they are actually much cheaper to import.

 

I just have a question about the hybrid... Due to the cost of it for us, fuel savings is top priority. 

 

I'm concerned about the electric motor/ev mode??? At what point does the vehicle run solely on electric not utilizing any fuel?? Is it that the petrol engine kicks in at about 60km/h? 

 

Is there an "ev mode" button? or is this mode automatically entered depending on the speed you're travelling?

 

I'm also concerned because i have a friend who imported a nissan xtrail hybrid and he said that once he passes 25km/hr , the engine kicks in. 

 

Thank you in advance for your responses!

 

P.S I'm getting the Z model.

In terms of equipment level Z Version is the most fully loaded as mentioned in previous post.

RS is sports version.

RS gets an 18' rims
Seats are suede leather (if you dont mind suede). From experience, suede tends to smell / stink when wet (eg if after exercise and you dont dry yourself before going into the car)

RS also has slightly different body kit (not really noticable)

RS body color n rear bumper is two tone / Z body color n bumper is one solid colour.

RS power steering is also different, more dynamic (will get much heavier at high speed / similar to sports car)

Yes, but that gives it the lightness to achieve it's amazing fuel economy.

It uses airbags and other active safety features to the five star rating, not through heavy solid doors though..

Non-hybrid version? I guess it is reasonable even if it is. Quite cheap if it is hybrid.

I think its market price. Brandnew Vezel X HYbrid now is only $99k. Within first year standard market defacto standard is 20% depreciation the very second it leaves the showroom floor.

Anything more is a bonus.

Any one?

Good day all, 

 

I'm interested in purchasing a Vezel Hybrid. A lot of websites i saw said that the hybrid is more expensive than the regular.. But where I am from(trinidad), the government has actually removed all taxes/import fees/duties etc on hybrid vehicles so they are actually much cheaper to import.

 

I just have a question about the hybrid... Due to the cost of it for us, fuel savings is top priority. 

 

I'm concerned about the electric motor/ev mode??? At what point does the vehicle run solely on electric not utilizing any fuel?? Is it that the petrol engine kicks in at about 60km/h? 

 

Is there an "ev mode" button? or is this mode automatically entered depending on the speed you're travelling?

 

I'm also concerned because i have a friend who imported a nissan xtrail hybrid and he said that once he passes 25km/hr , the engine kicks in. 

 

Thank you in advance for your responses!

 

P.S I'm getting the Z model.

Seems your primary objective of the Vezel / HRV hybrid is fuel economy. If thats the driving force, you would be better off with a Hyundai Ioniq, Kia Niro or Toyota Prius.

The Z version of Vezel is the least fuel efficient because its the heaviest at 1320kg. Avg FC on the Z hybrid is about 16km/L.

The X hybrid and RS Hybrid is more fuel efficient because of body weight. X hybrid could get you 20km/L - 22km/L, RS at about 19-21Km/L

Regarding EV and petrol. There is no fix speed it cuts in or cuts out. 100% dependent on how you control the throttle and the state of charge of the battery.

Honda uses IMA system of hybrid.

Non-hybrid version? I guess it is reasonable even if it is. Quite cheap if it is hybrid.

According to Wikipedia, The vezel does not use IMA but instead uses sport hybrid i-DCD system . 

 

I also found the answer for my previous question:

 

"Honda's i-DCD is a fun hybrid to drive, switching between the smooth, fuel efficient motor-only EV Drive mode and the powerful, exciting motor / engine-powered Hybrid Drive mode, simply by how the accelerator is depressed."
