    This is a great car, which is easy and fun to drive, with some imaginative ideas.

    WHAT A CAR!

    This really is the pinacle of small car motoring. It is a fine-driving, practical machine with everything you could ever ask for.

    Well done Honda. You are certainly the power of my dreams.

    My car

    I have driven the Honda Jazz for 2 years and 38,000 miles. I really can not fault it. It offers exceptional value to buy, insure and run.

    The drive is also excellent with sufficient firmness to make it feel like a car and not a wallowy people carrier. In case you think I've never driven any real men's cars, I drove a TVR Cerbera 4.2 for 3 years and loved it in different ways.

    I have been thinking about purchasing a car of late and have driven any number of cars in the £18-25K bracket and come away feeling they are no better than the Jazz.

    My car

    I have had this car for 10 days now after having a Yaris 1.3 T3 3dr for two years, and so far the quality inside the Honda is a step up. And since the list price was £8600 I found it more economical than the 1.4 (the list price has been increased by £125).

    The ride of the Honda is also better, more composed on corners and less wallowy around the country lanes. The 1.25 engine is a downsize for me from the more powerfull Toyota, but more smoother and less raucous. Saying that though, it copes well with all my driving in the Welsh countryside and dual carriageways where the legal limit soon comes up.

    I am still running the engine for another 300 miles and after that I expect the Honda engine to open up nicely. The car has practicaly won me over.

    I can get my mountain bike easily in the back with the front wheel off. I have heard that some peple put two bikes sidways with the back two seats up. I have also had a tow hitch without lights and a Thule two bike carrier to keep the muddy bikes out of the inside.

    To sum it up so far no problems and the Honda dealer has been faultless, The Toyota was a great car but the Honda is better. There is a new Yaris out soon so it will be interesting to see if the plastics are improved in that car. And it would be interesting to see how the Mitsubishi colt compares to the Jazz, but as there are less dealers and a lower score in the JD Power srvey, time will tell.
