Thank you praveen_v.

As I have said - I will discuss with my wife and daughters and take this further.

We are democratic - you know! So, this will require a 'vote'.

Dear k.sumit,

Thanks for the prompt and detailed reply.

As I said to praveen_v for his response, I shall have to share this with my wife and daughters. Then there will be the customary vote.

I had actually thought of the same. Let me discuss with wife. My feeling is she will say 'pay more go Honda'. Let us see.

Ouch! I hope that since the car is white and the moulding is white - I may not face this issue.

I agree. Again I feel I might land up with the OEM ones.

This might be easy to decide. One look on-site should be enough - one way or other. I know that I will need some mats - which ones - I can decide..

Looks like I will take this!

You must be a good teacher! You have done your study and are making me do 'homework'! Anyway, I do totally agree with you. I will check up outside too and then decide.

Actually, I prefer light and not all black interiors. I like the roomy feeling and 'enlightened' atmosphere.
Again, can be decided on the spot.

Ah! Ha! I had missed this! Thanks for the heads-up.

Congrats on your Jazz. I hope you are enjoying it and will keep doing so for a lot of kms.
In my case, since I am coming from a Honda City, the cost actually seems 'easy' - well not exactly - but still not a stretch! On the other hand, I prefer to take a factory fitted - fully loaded car so that I do not have to put any additions. Unfortunately, such a version of Jazz is not available!

Anyway, thanks again for the useful suggestions.

Don't worry. Just inform the dealer, you will buy the car from them, but you are gonna give them a feedback of '1' in a scale of 10. This matters! They will fall in your knees!

I got an SMS from Honda which states the following
Jazz up for Festive Season. Book your Honda Jazz now & get assured delivery during auspicious Navratras. SMS <JAZZ> to 53030 for a call back.

Not sure what's happening!! People are waiting from more than 3 months for their jazz delivery and Honda sends these kinds of text messages !!

Both the Honda dealers in Pune have offered us immediate delivery for a Jazz V CVT booked in the family, and 40 days wait for the colors/variants not in stock

70% of the Jazz'es I have seen on road are white.
No doubt white is the most preferred choice for Jazz as it looks fantastic in that color.

But, in spite of that, white is the color which is mostly readily available (along with silver) while the darker colors like Red/Brown and the Sunset Orange have more waiting periods. Seems like Honda is producing a lot more white Jazz'es and very less of the darker colors.

Also, there seems to be delay in the delivery of VX in particular while other models are much easily available.

I had gone to the dealership last week to fix some damage in an exhaust pipe. I saw 7-8 Jazz'es ready for delivery and all of them except one were V variants while only one was SV.

I had a chat with the SA and Manager at Infinity Honda today here and they are so hell bent on levying the Handling charges. And I am even more determined to not give in to this demand. The manager said that High Court has ruled that these charges are legal and hence cannot challenge it, which I found highly dubious. Is this the case?
I also believe a fellow Bhpian got these charges waived off by shooting a mail to Honda, but cannot seem to be able to find his post, mentioning that he could forward the format of the mail.
I really do not want to pay these charges, hence any help would be appreciated.

Hey, that's me who got the charges waived off. Pm me your mail id. I will mail the format. The process I followed was like this.

1. Informed the dealer, other dealers are offering this and that and promised them to give mats, mud flaps, teflon etc
2. Asked them politely to waive off the handling charges which they did not agree
3. Shot a mail to honda, honda forwarded it to the dealership and i was contacted by their quality supervisor who asked me what was my problem
3. As my dad already went ahead and booked the car, I had to lie him that I was a new customer and wanted to take the jazz but the handling charges is standing between my decision making skill.
4. Immediately he asked me to go ahead and book the car and make a call to him at the spot to remove the handling charges
5. Called him after a delay of 2 hours to inform him we have booked the car and provided him the agent name, booking name and number
6. Problem solved + got so many freebies.

NB: Most dealers thrive for the highest level of feedback from the customer side. If they think they wont get that, they will surely try for that. I have read stories of customers who booked other honda cars and left a low level feedback for the showroom. They were receiving follow up calls from the dealership offering free services, free teflons etc to make up the mind of the customer for a higher level feedback.

I have booked Jazz V-CVT Silver scheduled for plant dispatch on 11th Oct and promised delivery on Dussehra 22nd October. I have not paid any advance for the booking. Everything has been confirmed on mail by them.

No freebies, no discounts, I opted out of RSA and agreed to pay the handling charges of 3500. I am planning to buy the center arm rest as the only upgrade for the car. I will only upgrade the tyres if it comes with MRF else I am fine with Goodyear or Michelin. The car is for city use only.

O.T: I am getting verna 1500 kms driven July 2015 model VTVT S AT almost new car for 10 lac OTR which is really tempting. Its of a known person who is having to move to another country.

Verna will be a better car except for the single digit mileage figures.
For 10k, that's an unbelievable offer. Btb why is he selling it?

For Bangalore buyers, would suggest Brigade Honda, Trident Honda. They are new dealers for Honda promising early delivery within 25 days + 10 days for loan and RTO processing. Brigade Honda has readily available with him Carnellian Red VX MT Petrol Aug and Sept 2015 models.

Made a call to Perfect Honda Trivandrum to enquire about the possibility of adding auto/speed sensing feature to central lock and no proper response till now. The lady at the reception seems to be the only person alive! The transferred call doesn't get picked and proper follow up is also not being done. Its been 2 days and I am considering getting it done somewhere else. Will this void warranty in any manner? Is upgradation of the existing unit to autolock possible? And how much will I have to shell out for the same? Also thinking about swapping the horns with that of the VW polo. Any inputs?

Read older posts for knowing about how to replace the horn. A tutorial was added by some one.

Doesn't Jazz come with speed sensing door locks? The official review does mentions that somewhere Edit: Post no. 7
