2004 Honda Jazz LS 1.4 petrol
The best little car you can buy if you're looking for reliable car
Nothing went wrong so far. It works perfectly.
Small but practical and spacious car. Very smooth driving at low and medium speeds. On highways at higher speeds it's a little bit noisy and it feels like jumping a little.
Unstable on turns at higher speed (slides sidelong) and it feels like front wheels touching the ground only with edges - this is the reason why edges of the tyre are wearing faster (although the geometry is OK).
It has problem with misting windows, but turning on the air-conditioning solves the problem.
Drivers seat cannot be moved backward enough for tall driver.
If you're only looking for a reliable little car that will serve you perfectly, buy it. Comparing it with the VW Polo, the Jazz is of higher quality, but the Polo is much more stable on the road if you drive aggressively.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
