2005 Honda Jazz I-Dsi 13.L Gas from Philippines
Great city car, needs more power for faster roads
There is a cover in the back hatch lid that keeps falling out when you open the back hatch. I expect it will be fixed today.
The inside rear view mirror tended to vibrate considerably on bad roads. Dealer adjusted it and it's much better now, but every car I drove had the same problem. Our roads here are very bad tho.
The Jazz is a really good City car, good economy.
The 1.3L engine does not seem to have enough power for passing, outside the city. Hills can also be a problem if you come to a full stop, it has to be revved fairly high to get going again.
I drive 90% in the City, in medium to very heavy traffic, so these problems are only on fast moving roads with a lot of traffic.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

Honda Jazz is a really nice car. It's economical due to IDSI technology, and the design is optimized for space. I previously owned a Honda civic 92 hatchback before I decided to buy this new car. I hoped that this car would revolutionized the small & economical car category due to the increasing gasoline price. Frederick V. Barroquillo.
