2005 Honda Jazz es 1.4 dsi


Really good for this car size!


There is nothing going wrong till now, and don't expect anything because of Honda legendary build quality.

General Comments:

This is a really good small car. 6L/100 km through the town and amazing 4,6L/100 on the road. Pretty good performer and easy to park almost everywhere in town. Practicality is excellent. There is enough space for 4 of us and other baggage.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

2004 Honda Jazz ES Sport 1.4 CVT


Really cool


Still new :)

Some noise from the back door at low revs, but I think it's the license plate holder.

General Comments:

Really smooth acceleration with CVT transmission.

Seats are good, but can get uncomfortable on longer trips.

Suspension is too hard on bumpy roads, but the car handles like a dream on smooth roads.

The car has outclassed anything that I've seen in the super-mini class. It isn't an eye catching sight on the road, but that can also be a good thing. Parks virtually anywhere. The engine response is good for basically a 1.3l engine and the fuel consumption is amazing on the highway.

The space in the back is unbelievable, and is much better than even my 2001 Toyota Corolla liftback. Lots of room for all the little things you always lug around.

With the famous Honda reliability I should have this car for years to come.

I'm eagerly waiting for the Jazz to come to the USA. I could be easily lured into shopping for one. Gasoline is expected to climb and stay at record prices. Honda overall, could do very well as they have done in the past here with a new plateau in gasoline prices.

Learn a lot from this format and wish you all well.

Just an update,

The car is now at around 8000km and still doing well. I managed to get the fuel consumption down to 4.8l/100km on one trip. The CVT really doesn't let you drive this car hard, you actually seem to get better acceleration by starting in D and then switching to S. The 15in rims might not be a good investment, since they scratch too easy (they stick out from the tire), and the stock Bridgestones are very poor (good on dry roads, but poor in rain and horrible on snow). I'm thinking of getting wider snow tires for the upcoming winter. Nothing has gone wrong yet, but the passenger side power window is seems to stick, will ask the dealer to fix at next regular service visit. The only thing that is wrong with this car is that the 2006 civic is out and it looks much more aggressive and sexy and still has the magic seats. Oh well...
