Hello guys! Im realyy close to buy a brand new CVT Honda jazz 2013 production year. Im not sure if that is a problem or not but the dealer told me that they have one car available in showroom with CVT automatic shift only that is made in China... What do you think? Is the myth still standing everything that is made in China wont last? I read about the factory and it is practicallyy a japan factory with full quality control placed in China. If i want to wait for another car im looking at 1-2 months... Sry for my english and i will fullyy apreciate any clear facts about China vs UK vs Japan.
Btw i got the best price @ 14500 Euro with metal colour jazz cvt comfort :popcorn:

I though the jazz was made in the UK/ Japan but I have read that depending on model and country some are made in china for the local market but tbh if the car is made in china or anywhere else it should be built to Honda standard Shouldnt be really any worry

it'll be fine. come next year, they will all be made there as the jazz production is being halted in the Uk for the new Tourer and SUV that are coming. Plus there's a new jazz on its way in 2014.

Jazz, "US" Accord, Civic sedan, CRV for Australian market have been sourced from Thailand for a while now. No need to be concerned about build quality from any Honda factory. BTW the VIN prefix for Thailand is MRH.
