The ban on such cars was also revoked sometime back.

Faced a situation yesterday evening when I found all 6 windows to be completely fogged up. Since I have never used a defogger before I actually wiped all of them with a cloth.
In such a case 1st thing to do it turn on AC at full speed and windscreens will get clear.
Rear defogger takes time to clear and should be put ON whenever there is lack of visiblity. It takes around 3-5 min to clear off.
Tip - Glass catches fog whenever there is a major temperature differnece between inside and outside temperature. So best thing to do is intake outside air and keep fan only, don't turn on AC. Turn on AC when you have more occupancy in car as with more people in car air inside is always hotter than outside.

Jazz CVT vs TUV300 AMT

From the thread of Rajeevraj (automatics under 10 lakhs), it was clear that CVT gives better driving experience in terms of speed and smoothness compared to AMT. But, is this a considerable difference to give away the SUV-ish features (good road view, tough & masculine, less bouncy ride etc) of TUV300 AMT and go for Jazz CVT?

There is approx 1.5 lakhs difference between Jazz V-CVT and TUV300 T8 AMT.

These two cars are really not comparable as they belong to different segments. Honda has a track record of proven engines and transmissions, plus the Jazz is car which is well established across the globe. M&M's new vehicles usually have some niggles which take some to get fixed.

You are trying to compare 2 different mills here...Jazz CVT is Petrol vs TUV300 AMT is Diesel. They both are in different leagues. So it all depends on your requirement, usage, purpose, etc. I would strongly suggest taking multiple test drives of both and pick the best one that ticks off all or most of your boxes.

Also consider the ASS and dealerships available. Typically, Mahindra's are prone to some minor issues but they might be cheaper to maintain compared to Hondas. In this case the difference in engines might offset the lower maintenance cost of Mahindras over Hondas.

I feel there should be speed sensitive Auto lock in Jazz and which is missing. Its a safety issue for kids if they play around with the door handle and should be present in all cars.

Can some one write this to Honda people and if they can program the ECU for this, I am sure there is not much of work to do this. I am not good at writing so I'm asking if some can do the same.

Sorry if i sound harsh, but, child locks have been provided in cars for the same reason mentioned by you. Small children should never be seated in the front seat, and rear doors can have the child lock enabled.
I do agree that speed sensitive locks should be there, for front occupants safety, so that doors cannot be opened from outside, incase we Forget locking manually.

I am with you on this. Honda should have given it in all models. More over they even skipped lock/unlock button. That is too much cost cutting. I wonder what does top management thinks before skipping on such things. I will surely write and would want everyone to send an email to Honda to make them realize how stupid they have acted by not giving it.

You cannot have child lock on everytime when you dont have kids. Also this was just one of the reason and further you dont want your car unlock at the traffic signals or some traffic jams.

Yes you can lock it manually but you will have to get used to it, but since my all other cars lock automatically so people like me will tend to forget to lock the doors.

+1
I test drove the CVT. I really liked the combination of CVT with paddle shifters.

The turn off was no magic seats in CVT Topend. Jazz is knows for its versatile seats and Honda decided CVT customers don't deserve Magic seats.

Auto lock was another glaring omission.

Add to all of this, I didn't find the plastics to feel like a 10L OTR car.

The lock unlock button is right next to the manual central locking on the driver's side. Hence having two things doing the same function is needless.

On the other hand, the lock/unlock button also had central locking programming inputs. (hold the key down for five seconds, we could change the way lock/ unlock works while driving),

The automatic locking convenience is lost.

Hi T-BHPians,

This is my first post. I am in the market for my first car, with a budget of 8lacs OTR, DELHI. I always wanted to drive a modern machine which coupled looks, practicality and decent performance. Like a host of other informed readers/potential buyers, I was a fence sitter on the Jazz v/s Elite i20 debate. Although i have to admit, my heart always said Jazz (as i have always been a fan of this car from its earlier avatar in India), but the head had its doubts (especially after pouring through the reviews both here, and the video reviews on youtube (autocar India, NDTV etc) in which the i20 just nosed ahead of the Jazz. However, after TDing the Petrol Jazz, my head was convinced to JAZZ it up , since my preference was for a petrol car (given my daily commute will be less than 50kms) I have gone ahead and booked a Jazz V (golden brown metallic) (I just thought that the V MT variant made the most sense, and VFM proposition) and have decided to take delivery on Diwali Now i have a couple of nagging questions regarding the insurance part. Although I want to go for Honda Assure, but the quotation from the showroom is almost 10K higher than the offer online (I want to go with the base insurance+Zero Dep. +RSA plan). I am confused, as what should i choose, since i am a first timer w.r.t car purchase, request all Honda car owners to guide me on this one...is the Assure plan worth such premium? I am also looking for advice on accessories for my new car (reverse parking sensors, door mats, mud flaps, arm rest, seat covers etc). I am keeping my fingers crossed that the upcoming festive season will help me get some goodies free from the dealer but dont think that will happen, as the Honda Jazz is quite a hit given the 2 months sales report
