Can anyone please suggest
Mine came with Goodyear Assurance, I haven't upsized or changed the tyre yet, I will be doing that post 3rd free service or around 20k kms. At 8k kms they have become noisier and a little hard.

Michelin Primacy 3ST and Continental MC5 seem to be preferred choice of BHPians. I have friends with Michelin 3ST but other cars and I can tell that these tyres are silent and ride becomes more absorbant, no experience with Contis. If you really want to swap tyres then do it as soon as you get your car.

I am not keen on Good Years as the ones on my EcoSport are pretty loud and not so grippy ! Thought they would still last for another 20 K as I am already on 41K on the ODO.

I assume Michelins and Continentals would be expensive and not so easy to get. Could you suggest more affordable alternatives like the Bridgestones or more affordable Michelins. What is usually the buy back rates for MRF tyres ?

My experiences have been with Bridgestone ER60 (discontinued) and Michelin XM2 on my previous cars. ER60 had best combination of comfort and grip in all conditions, XM2 are good in comfort but not very great in road grip during corners, braking is good though in all conditions.

My pampered sweet Honda engine (Jazz ivtec VMT) is returning mileage of 17.4 Km/ltr. in city with AC ON 50% of the time. The car is in "run-in" and has completed 400 KM. I am not pushing her beyond 2.5 k of RPM. I expect the mileage to be around 18 after first servicing. Aren't the figures amazing friends ?

Pics below.

that's pretty good considering city driving.
May increase after first servicing. Even I'm yet to find out

It showed me around 18-19 during the first 500 odd kms & after that it gradually reduced as I started pushing her beyond 2500 rpm.I have completed around 4500 kms as of now & the average city mileage i get is around 13.8 with almost B2B traffic.

How's the Jazz Petrol when driving in city traffic conditions? As the review mentions, the car is lethargic below 2,500 RPM, so is it a pain to drive in city traffic or one can manage it after getting used to the car?

I was skeptical about this point when I replaced my 10 year old Swift with Jazz. Let me be honest and clear. Jazz is not as eager as old generation Swift (2006). By eager, I mean Jazz will not dash ahead of everyone when the signal turns green (unless you rev it really hard). But on a positive note, it is not that lethargic either. Certainly it should not be a deal breaker. You will get used to it. Agreed, I definitely downshift more than my Swift, but I do get amazing mileage and super smooth engine. Build quality is also a notch above Swift in my opinion. One more thing..steering feedback was better in Swift than Jazz. Jazz steering though light in city and sufficiently heavy on highway doesn't give you the FEEL of road. But that's ok. Overall, it's a good car with bright interior due to large glass all around, good space, super refined petrol engine, good mileage, good boot space.

I have gotten habituated to it. I drive to work in the worst possible city traffic, and while the poor low end power is irritating, it's possible to get used to it. Nearly 6 months now.

Its been almost 6 months with the Jazz petrol & yes below 2500 rpm its a bit weak in picking up when you are up hill & needs getting used to. But once the engine opens up, its one gem to drive calm & sedate.

I have recently taken delivery of a new Honda Jazz V CVT (Urban Titanium). Thanks a lot to Urajkumar and GKMahajan for their detailed ownership reviews, which helped the decision making process.

I have currently run in around 300kms and am getting only about 10.5kmpl in light traffic. I drive with a light foot. Is this normal or will this increase after the first service?

One tip to drive the CVT is to not keep pressing the accelerator constantly. Once you reach your desired speed, ease off a bit and you can see rpm drop and the car cruising around at 1000 rpm and it returns excellent figures then.

In light traffic I get 12.5 - 13Kmpl in city with AC always on. Do reset the trip meter and the Avg will also get reset and start computing fresh. That way you can monitor it and see if it continues to stay around 10.5

The Gen Next Honda Jazz to get new 1.0-litre turbo petrol power.

The new 3cyl turbo petrol from the all-new Civic is likely to come to other models such as the Honda Jazz supermini.

In the new Civic, revealed at the Paris show, the engine produces 127bhp, and can be paired with either a six-speed manual or CVT automatic gearbox

Dear ashant,

CONGRATS on your new Jazz V CVT!
Welcome to the Jazzy club.

Please spare me the blushes! You are welcome.

One possibility of the low average could be that you and the car have not 'tuned in' to each other.

Just as an example, my wife was used to driving WagonR and switched to Jazz. I had to tell her that - at a signal - you need not keep increasing and decreasing the accelerator - this is not going to stall!
Another thing which both of us had to learn was to NOT to cover the front gap in a hurry. This resulted in sudden braking in the end too!
Yet another example, on a good road, a slow depression of the A pedal gives a higher pickup and higher FE!

The learning trick is to ensure that the ECO light always stays green!

If you see the very good averages which I have got with ACC full ON always, then you will have to accept that the model is quite capable.

Anyway, do not spend too much time and energy on FE - enjoy the car! FE will take care of itself..

Regards,

Girish Mahajan

Update - 5 months after registering my car at MH14 RTO, today I received RC papers by post.

MH14FM27XX is my series, so people after this series should shortly start receiving RC papers.
