    My car

    Bought the 1.4 S from a main dealer in 2005 when it was 9 months old,car will be 5 years old this year(2009). Car has done 60K and has been extremely practical and reliable - Car averages 12000 miles a year for work and transporting a young family around , thus it gets a fair amount of use. Easily accommodates the family and full luggage/Pram to the airport for holidays. In truth boring to drive and slow with no image but I've never regretted buying it.Running costs are pretty good,fuel consumption averages 38 MPG during short winter journeys, 50+ MPG on Motorway trips. Servicing costs are expensive but tempered by the fact I only see the dealer once a year. (service costs vary between £150 and nearly £300 -though some dealers do £99 services & menu services for cars over 3 yrs/37000 miles).Only one thing has ever needed attention ,the drivers door lock failed at 4 yrs , otherwise my only gripes being carpets are not durable-showing some bald patches etc and the seats are also showing wear. Th Front pads/disks changed at 46K and rear pads just changed at 60K -no other "wear" parts needing replacement [bar wiper blades and tyres - which being a common size profile are fairly inexpensive]All in all a good reliable car which i intend to keep for at least another year.

    My car

    I have recently taken delivery of a new 1.4 EX manual and I have t osay the car is magic. it does everything I need it to do and its comfortable and quiet ona motorway and has pace when it needs it. overall its jus ta nice place to be. refinement is excellent and there is hardly any wind noise what so ever. I dont know why whatcar only given the new honda jazz a three star rating as I think its the best super mini about and its alot better that the new fiesta with out a shadow of doubt. At the end of the day with honda's you pay for quality and this car has lots of it.

    My car

    I test drove the 1.2 SE model and was hoping that it would meet my exacting criteria. Sadly that was not the case. I deliberately chose the most economical version, noting that the CO2 emissions have risen to 125 g/km (from the originally advertised 120), but felt it lacked the acceleration, flexibility & all round performance compared to my reliable, efficient and excellent Skoda Fabia turbo-diesel estate. Yes, the 1.4 (1,339cc) version would have offered better performance, but also higher CO2 emissions, without the high torque and associated flexibility, that I sought. I was hoping that Honda would introduce an excellent turbo-diesel version of their new Jazz, but unfortunately that is not intended; only a more expensive, less popular hybrid. Hence Honda will lose numerous sales, including my next purchase. Why Honda chooses not to cater for the diesel market, unlike vertually all of its competitors is a mystery to me, especially as their faster, heavier 2,204cc CIVIC turbo-diesel gives a superior combined MPG than their most economical new petrol Jazz model. Hence I shall look elsewhere, until such time as Honda sees the light & embraces diesel technology for their otherwise excellent supermini.
