We are looking for a car that will last for 8 to 10 years and long time reliability and is very important. Having burnt my hands and pockets with a fiat earlier this is utmost important to me.


Our budget is very very tight, if I had money I would go for sv. My past mistakes in car purchase has taken a hit on my wife as she thinks the Honda would be another fiat. More importantly none of her colleagues and friends are recommending the jazz citing high upkeep cost and low resale value (I know it's false).
We have a Jazz SV petrol too. Since you are intending to keep it for 8-10 years, better to go for SV instead of S since it will be only about 50k more and will be negligible if you consider the duration you'll keep it. The maintenance costs are not much, and on par with Swift or slightly more. The service schedule however is every 6 months, which is kind of irritating. Expect around 8-10k yearly maintenance costs.

Mostly by the next year or so abs and airbags are gonna become mandatory! Why buy a car without them now? Judging by your needs you can always consider the Toyota Etios Liva. It's reliable, cheap to maintain, safe and comes within your budget too as long as you are fine with the looks.

Completed first service today, topped up all fluids and the bill amount was Zero

The washing and cleaning job was not up to the mark. There were some stain marks which they did not bother. I guess you have to live with this if you are sending your car for free service in a crowded service station (Capital Honda - Airport Road, Chennai) on a Sunday.

Any pointers for magnetic sun shades for Jazz in Hyderabad, as the reviews in online forums say incorrect sizes being delivered to customers if purchased in amazon or flip kart. If anyone who purchased online & got the right set, do let me know the model & the site, so that I can place an order as well.

Thanks in Advance & happy miles

You can find universal car covers in Amazon and Ebay. Before buying, make sure that the cover comes with separate provisions for side view mirrors and rear antenna. If cover has no provision for antenna, it will bend in long run and looks awkward.

If there is no major price difference, I recommend you to buy from the dealer, where you can get better quality cover with branding on it.

After evaluating lot of factors I let go the thought. I for sure will miss the super silent engine and comfortable seats. The jazz seats were the very few of the cars i have sat which provided very good comfort.
I am sitting on the fence now, 30 K more will fetch me a swift vdi which will not limit my usage unlike the Jazz.
Car purchase decisions are never easy for us enthusiasts.
Thank you all for the advice.

Didn't you hear mate? Dual airbags have been made standard across all the variants of jazz along with marginal increase in prices.

Did a 1400 KM trip from Chennai - ChikMagalur - Mullayanagiri - Chennai last week and the car did not disappoint at all. One of the best highway cruisers, period. The last 1 KM in Mullayanagiri hills literally did not have any roads and she held her head up well. Will try to start a travelogue in a separate thread.

K&N site has a model search, but none of them matches with the size of the air filter in new Jazz. Any help on this is greatly appreciated.

Thanks,

I've also been searching for this. I found the part number for Honda Fit in the US. I'm not sure whether that would fit in the current Jazz.

Anyone else having the K&N part information for the new Jazz, would be much appreciated.

Thanks.
