Advice for buyers
What should I look for in a used Honda Jazz hatchback?
The Jazz is mostly used as an urban car, so check for bodywork scuffs and kerb damage on the alloy wheels. Check the seats all slide and fold as they should.
Reported problems with the Jazz are remarkably few. The car has built up a solid reputation as one of the most reliable on the market, and nearly all of Honda’s cars share this accolade in their respective classes.
Honda dealers always get excellent reports, and Honda as a brand is consistently at or near the top of most reliability surveys. In our most recent one, the firm ranked 10th out of 31 manufacturers, and the Jazz came second in the small cars category.
From new, the Jazz comes with a three-year, 90,000-mile warranty.
