Review of Used Honda Jazz
The Jazz is Honda’s smallest model to be sold in Australia. Launched here in October 2002, the newest Jazz was introduced in 2014. It got quite a lot of old cars traded, so there might be some bargains when dealers work. to transfer transactions from their yards.
To reduce prices, Jazz is produced in Thailand. We visited Honda’s factory in Thailand and were able to demonstrate Honda’s emphasis on quality control.
Honda Jazz has a high hood to maximize interior space in a relatively small body
The handling of the small Honda is good if the road is smooth, but it can bounce on a strong impact. On the right surfaces, the Jazz is easy to turn around, is fun to change directions in corners and is generally well set up for everyday driving. Enthusiastic drivers may find it a bit inaccurate to drive.
Honda Jazz has a high roofline to maximize interior space in a relatively small body. It can accommodate up to four adults without affecting too much legroom. In Australia it’s likely to carry one or two people, but we talked to families with young children, they said the Jazz met their needs and was more impressed with the car.
Jazz has one of the best folding rear seat designs out there
There is a fairly easy entrance to the rear seats, but some might find the rear doors open a little tight in the original 2002 model. The units sold from the new August 2008 model were much better.
Jazz, actually many Hondas, has one of the best folding rear seat designs of them. Seats slide back and forward to allow you to juggle between people and / or luggage. Better yet, it can be folded neatly in seconds to create a huge luggage area. The backrest of the front passenger seat can be reclined all the way down so you can carry your long items from the dashboard to the rear window.
August 2008 saw the release of the second generation Jazz. It retains the same general styling theme as the first generation, but overall is larger and sits on a longer wheelbase. The result is significantly more interior space, especially in the rear area of the cabin. Boot space is increased and the 60/40 split rear seats can be folded flat without having to slide the front seats forward a few notches as in the original model.
At the same time, the bodywork is stiffer to improve the ingress of the NVH (Noise, Vibration, and Severance) into the cabin.
The Honda Jazz comes with a 1.3- or 1.5-liter four-cylinder engine. Although the engine dimensions remained the same for the Second Generation Jazz, they were a whole new design. Power and torque are both increased, but fuel consumption and emissions are reduced. The torque diagram has been stretched to make more hum at the end of the rpm range.
The Jazz gen-one has a continuously variable transmission (CVT). The 1.5 CVT comes with a sport mode that offers seven preset gear ratios, which are controlled via the steering wheel paddles. The 1.3-liter engine is completely automatic.
Controversially, Honda’s decision to go back to the conventional automatic transmission on the Jazz gen-hai, saying that some drivers dislike the CVT’s traits.
Although Jazz is easy enough for amateur mechanics, there are some cases where crowding under the bonnet is inevitable in a vehicle of this size. Keep a seminar manual by your side and don’t try any safety-related work unless you are qualified to do so.
If you want a Honda Jazz with a larger trunk, you can go with the Honda City
Honda Australia dealership system is widespread in densely populated areas, but not all are established in remote areas. We’ve rarely heard of any real complexity with keeping spare parts, but if you’re worried about this, it might be smart to ask local questions before getting too in love with either of the models. This cute little one. The prices of Hondas parts are more reasonable today than they used to be.
Insurance costs for the Honda Jazz are generally average for the sector. There doesn’t seem to be any real difference between companies in terms of premiums. However, it is always wise to take the time to shop for the best prices.
If you want a Honda Jazz with a larger trunk, you can choose Honda City, Jazz with the rear four-door sedan.
What are you looking for
Check that the engine starts up easily and responds quickly and positively to the gas, even in completely cold weather.
A continuously variable transmission will respond quickly to changes in throttle position and road conditions. Since the CVT gearbox sounds and feels different from a regular automatic, get an expert to drive it if you are not confident that it works correctly.
Make sure the brake stops without being pulled to the side and that no wheels are locked while the other wheels are spinning.
