Can petrol Jazz owners check and revert back?
Will definitely check this and update.
But yes, the reply I got wasn't from the dealer customer service.
It was from Honda India.

Well it does seem petrol customers are inferior for Honda.. This image is from my petrol V model.

Since it says 'Takata', it means Jazz petrol has seatbelts with pre-tensioners. As I suspected, customer service guys are misinformed.

But unlike the image you posted, this does not have any marking saying "PRE" to indicate that it does have pretensioners?
Even the model numbers are different.
And Takata makes seat-belts as well. So I'm not sure we can just assume that they made this one with pretensioner.

Am I missing something here?!

Yikes! I guess this mystery will be solved only when Jazz diesel owners check the tag on their seatbelts.

Note: The pic I posted is from my Honda BR-V

As per the email I received from Honda customer support, the diesel version on the Jazz has pre-tensioners only for the driver side. Its not present for the co-passengers side even in the diesel variant.

We'll know for sure if any of the diesel Jazz owners could take a pic and share for comparison.

From the above two pictures (One for BRV though), looks like PRE does indicate the tensioners.

I tried searching team-bhp for mention of Over-The-Counter sales of HONDA genuine spare parts, but couldn't find anything. Does HONDA really sell them or H*A*S*S is the only option for us?

I finally received the armrest yesterday and had to pay Rs.320 as customs duty. It is of decent quality and looks pretty good for $55 that I paid.

On the accessory part as arunmichael said, you should be able to get Mud flaps and Floor mats (Yes! with Honda written on it) free of charge. I got them by default without any negotiations. If you negotiate, they can probably throw in the reverse parking sensor as well. No harm in trying.

During my purchase of Jazz VX, I got floor mats and reverse parking sensors free .

4. Reverse parking sensors - I had preferred to install outside. I went to an accessories dealer. He realized that the standard units would point upwards - due to the profile of the car. I went to Honda Dealer - their unit had the sensors at the right angle. It cost me 4,000 Rs - but are really good.

4. Get this from your dealer. Modifying electrical system can breach warranty if done aftermarket.

The car is ready for delivery at the dealership and I did a brief PDI and am planning to take delivery sometime the coming week.

On the accessory side

I am getting the Mud Flaps, Reverse Parking Sensors and Floor Mats for free.

Mud flaps would be fixed post delivery at around 5th of Oct as they are currently out of stock

Reverse parking sensor was a bit of a tough selection, as I wanted both the camera and sensor on one screen. Totally dislike looking at 2 places for the same with the Rear View Mirror and infotainment display. Managed to get a sleeker though basic 4 point sensor with a small unit on the RH corner near the windshield in front of the the steering wheel.

Floor mats are not 3D or washable ones. Would really struggle keeping them clean.

Will have to depend on Ali express for the Armrest

Got the underbody Teflon treatment done for 3960. Bit expensive for me.

But my real challenge is going to be the Tyres. They are MRF ZVTS. Which I am not at all impressed with. Did you face any similar challenges. Any way of swapping these with the Bridgestones. I know the Michelins are a bit old.

Can anyone please suggest

My Jazz came with Michelin tyres. But as per personal experience MRF's are not bad. My swift was riding on MRF.

A quick question. Does any variant on the jazz come with isofix points for car seats?

AFAIK the Indian spec Jazz doesn't come with ISOFIX points. You may consider installing a child restraint system.

can you elaborate on the child restraint system please. I have a car seat that came with a base to be installed to ISOFIX which I am currently using on the X1. I was just wondering how it would fit onto the jazz seats.

Just booked the jazz CVT this morning in Pondicherry. The only offer that Honda has for the CVT is a gold coin and the SA agreed to invoice at the old price. They were trying to push hard for the Honda assure and zero dep insurance through them but a quick online quote was 8k less than them and they refused to budge. So have decided to get insurance outside.They refused to give even the mud flaps and floor mats complimentary.

Now my hunt for an armrest starts as the OEM one that my cousin got cost him 18k

Typically, the car seats which can be fixed via ISOFIX also have arrangement to be used with Adult seatbelt. Please check if you have lap belt guides at the back, usually it's marked with Seatbelt through here or similar stickers.

Pull out the length of belt, and pass the lap belt through the lap belt guides, then click the belt in. Once you have clicked the belt in, firmly pull the shoulder part of the belt, so that it tightens the lap belt.

I use my car seat with an adult seatbelt only as my Figo does not have ISOFIX points.
