I am starting this thread in order to discuss the subject matter, and leave all the information updates on this forum, making this the location that a new person should visit and get the information before making the decision to buy his/her Honda Vezel / HR-V. I will simply list the concerns and everybody may give their feedback and keep the discussion going.

Issue : A delay in moving the vehicle when accelerator is pressed.
People keep complaining that the Honda Vezel RU3/RU4 ( which has DCT - Dual Clutch Transmission ) to be having this issue [ I assume that the editions such as RU1/RU2 that has CVT would not have this issue ]. According to what they say,
- In a situation where the vehicle is stopped/not-moving (Let's say in the middle of a traffic):)
- When the driver presses the Accelerator (to move the vehicle forward);)
- The vehicle doesn't move forward quickly; and a significant delay is being experienced.:(

As far as I know, this is a bug in the DCT system firmware that has been originally released with the Vehicle.

Solution : Firmware updates, time-to-time.
Online resources confirm that the company has recalled the vezels, and has provided a few firmware updates time-to-time; the final update (as per today - 2014/12/24) has been released on September 2014.

Question: What about Vezel RU3/RU4 vehicles manufactured after September, 2014?
I am wondering whether this issue could still exist with the vehicles released after the final update; and whether the Honda is still not confident enough about their DCT technology. The reason for that is, that they are introducing the Honda HR-V on 2015 in USA, and apparently they are only releasing the CVT versions of the HR-V, but not any DCT loaded version. Especially, in a country where people would love to have a Formula 1 proven transmission system, there must be a reason for not releasing a DCT powered HR-V.

I would appreciate if you could add your answers/feedback and any information related to the same matter.

Thank you.

The DCT is only found in the hybrid versions of the Vezel and as far as I know there are no plans to release these outside of Japan. There have been a number of recalls for the hybrid Fit and Vezel related to the DCT's firmware, the most recent being just a few months ago, so it's hard to say whether Honda has truly solved them.

As for the RU codes they are as follows:
RU1 = 2WD gasoline
RU2 = 4WD gasoline
RU3 = 2WD hybrid
RU4 = 4WD hybrid

A honda manual is flawless. Why get an auto? and a Crappy auto at that?
Even more of a reason for going manual is the lack of manuals available throughout the industry, might as well enjoy it here before we start wishing we did!

Hi, I have a honda vezel 2015 Dec. model. I too had this problem during bumper to bumper traffic. I have just spoken to the agents and to said that it is likely an issue with the DCT. Once I visit I will give an update on this. Sorry I am from Sri Lanka and mostly driving in heavy traffic in Colombo. Thanks.

Hi Haresh, Did you find a fix to your DCT issue? I am having the same problem. Dont know where to get the repair done or buy parts. Appreciate if you could share any details.
Cheers,

hi i am having the same problems with the 2015 model. especially when i am at a roundabout and i press the accelerator to go, it doesnot work, instead a warning sign with a pedal in japanese flashes on the screen. (and i am not in japan). After about 10 seconds, it starts working.

when i go uphill, there is a delay in the gears changing and the car really drags. this has also happened on flat, the gears are not changing as they should.

when i go downhill, the car suddenly lurches forward, accelerating on its own.

i dont feel confident driving this car.

Hi all, it's just a few days ago I bought my Vezel type Z sport and the car is a second hand from Japan. All the text and voice are in Japanese language and I was unable to set it in English despite checking some videos on youtube.
After some researches, I found that the language is only in Japanese. I think I have to update the firmware and I request anyone to help me. thanks in advance.
