Honda Jazz....

My mate just bought a Jazz today....

Does anyone know of a decent (like this one) Forum for Jazz owners???

I've already Google'd it, but didn't come up with much.....just the usual Yahoo etc. crap.....

I think the Saga website is the nearest thing to it. Or there's this http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Blue_rinse_brigade

There's a site at www.smallhonda.co.uk.

They don't like us very much though for some reason.

As for 2Talkabout - well we don't get on either

The smallhonda site did have a Jazz section, but the owner has just lumped all the different car sections into one. So it looks like he's kind of given in with the whole Jazz thing.

Should I make a new forum section for the little Jazz? Does it need some love?

In last week's issue of Auto Express, they did a 60000 mile strip down on the Jazz.
This is the repair log of it during their tenure:-

It is a great little car! I had one! Just that every other Jazz owner I encountered had a zimmer frame stashed in the boot and was about 50 years older than me Honda are smart though, if the new Civic has scared away older folk, there's always the Jazz to tempt them!

As long as you don't kill the youngster inside, you don't have to be afraid of the possibility to consider conservative designs!

I spent a week or two with a Jazz in march, and I quite liked it. The visibility was superb, and it was a pleasure around town.

It big big downside was on faster roads. It was very unpleasant on motorways, but I feel it might just be a trait of small cars. Way too noisy and uncofortable for me at that kind of speed.

Which engine did your Jazz have Bungle, 1.2 or 1.4?
While I totally agree with your 'about town' comments, I have to disagree with your findings regarding faster roads. We had a 1.4 Sport version for a couple of years and I was always amazed by its motorway refinement for a small car -happy as the proverbial sandboy at 70-80mph - we always arrived at our destination feeling very calm and relaxed.
It's no wonder it scores so highly in all of the surveys.
Also, I reckon there is more room for a front passenger to stretch out due to its deeper foot well legroom compared to the Civic.(or a CR-V for that matter)

I do not think that small car necessarily equates to poor high speed refinement.

This week's Auto Express features the new Mini Cooper and I quote "In fact,whatever type of driving you're doing, the MINI excels, with refinement at motorway speeds being especially impressive"

I had ther 1.4 I think. No, I did.

Most of my family have moved from SE London/Kent borders to the medway towns, so it is a regular trip. When I had the Jazz, we took it as we had fuel to use up (the garage won't get any of our fuel back!).
The car had 4 in it, and we all agreed that it was not nice to be in at 70mph, it was noisy and uncomfortable. This is in comparison to the last generation Civic Sport 3 door, and an Accord.

I don't understand that, then.

The Mini is an great little car, and supposedly handles just like a small BMW, which it kind of is. We seriously looked at one, but the boot space and specs on the lower trims were laughable.

Most of our longish trips were only two up which may have helped - certainly never found it noisy (hearing is okay) nor uncomfortable (nor a masochist either)
If it was that bad it would not rate so highly in all of the surveys, that's for sure - and of course, it's DSI engine is the same as in the small engined Civic.

Be ever grateful to the Jazz for those wonderful 'magic' seats.

I have driven both the 1.2 and 1.4 jazz as courtesy cars, by the end of it I was desperate for my Civic to come back.

I found my foot was too long for the clutch pedal it seemed to push up against the footwell, the boot was too small and I sat too low down but although it was noisey on faster roads I was suprised at how nippy the 1.4 is.

I had an FRV for a couple of weeks too now that was nice it was the sporty version with the blacked out windows and extremely fast.

Never had a clutch pedal Topcat - our's was the CVT transmission and it was so smooooooth.
Our Civic is the nicer car - but I did prefer the Jazz to the old style Civic .
