Disclaimer-read this carefully:
  • This is a call recording between me and a dealer salesperson of the "H" brand.
  • I call him as a customer of the jazz and ask him to try and convince me that why should I purchase the jazz, why not an i20 or the punto diesel.
  • Of course, the sweet voice is mine but due to sour throat, you may find sour at times.
  • Privacy of customer's name and salesperson's name is assured as NONE appear in this recording , so I hope that it is not against team-bhp rules.
  • Listen to it carefully and see at what lengths people can go to claim that jazz is not a failure and why should I buy a jazz.
  • My motive is not directly/indirectly insulting anyone or bashing but just to give you some real truth at the topic. So I hope that you will not find it objectionable. Heck, why should I bash the car that my parents own?
  • he does not call the jazz a flop yet says that the car is selling less..segment is different etc..
  • In the call, at the end I did recall two sedans as ugly but please owners do not take this personally as opinions may differ from that of mine.
Listen to each and every minute detail of the call maybe to understand that what kind of a buyer type I am.

Kindly excuse my acting skills, and I hope that I receive decent comments on my purchase awareness. Brickbats are also welcome.

Excellent SID. Eventhough I could not understand Hindi fully, understood your point. As expected Sales guy was clueless.
I think this thread will make HONDA to get up and tighten their loose areas and launch a top one in their next hatch back..

All the more reason to hunt for a used Jazz, IMHO.

After hearing the clip, I felt sympathy for the sales-guy. Must be a tough job to convince people to go for the Jazz at those prices. And if it is a tbhp-ian at the other end of the line, all the more tough.

Great job Sidindica!

I guess the sales-guy is cursing Honda everytime a prospective Jazz customer comes in

To every question about the car - the sales guy replies about Honda's brand / reputation (instead of replying about the car)

But it has to be said to his credit that he is ultra-patient and ultra-persistent. I would hire him any day.

Hello Bhpians,
I bought a Honda jazz about 2 months back.i noticed a distinct rattling sound from my Left boot area.we couldn't exactly locate it.i reported it to the dealer,and for some time the drive was smooth.Now again i hear the irritating noise,especially when i drive in unrubberised roads/a little bad road.i informed the dealer again,and his reply to me was"to drive for two more days,and then to tell him,exactly from where the noise is,and he would rectify it!".now if i knew from where the sound is,i would have never called him! Anyway i am giving it to the dealer tomorrow.let us see.Has any other Jazz owners noticed any rattling sound?
with regards

@Sidindica

Man you are wonderful !

Now you have created another problem for HONDA. They will find it very difficult to recruit salesperson for JAZZ. Even the existing sales force would like to be reassigned to CITY etc.

Cheers

Well the "magic" will not wash away the dirt that the rains will bring us. So better to have at least the mud flaps. Wonder if they are made of "titanium"?

So things have come to such a pass after you rightly chose to buy a Jazz for your parents ! (http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/test-d...onda-jazz.html (Twing-o-twing, I want all my world to sing, I got tupi tupi twing. Honda Jazz) ). Infact many of us had used your thread as input for our decision to go for it.

Well only you can answer to that !

I am still wondering what you have achieved by this ... except maligning a car whose only flaw is its pricing.As regards the Jazz - I am sure you know better as your buy was not one on the spur of the moment, but a well thought one after various TDs and a detailed study of available alternatives.

Is Honda listening? Reading this thread? I hope so because there have been a lot of positive ideas which they could use to their advantage.

Anyway we here have noticed a marked improvement in the sales guys who have been persistent and convincing. There were also visits of the Honda Marketing people where the dealer invited us to share our views /give feedbacks .
