Some mats have this weird fitting issue of getting the foot pedals (A/B/C) stuck. Please ensure whatever mats you instal dont have this problem.
Or are rectified by altering the part that comes directly under the pedals.

But then, we had already set our eyes on the Jazz, so was not a deal-breaker and we ended up with the Select, albeit overshooting our budget But had no inkling a simple parcel tray would cost so much...may be you could get a non-OEM one from elsewhere?
Even the OEM parcel tray might not be a right fit for Base version. While i am yet to take a complete view of the Base model, the parcel tray covers ( with some gap still - you can spot it in my ownership report), only when the seat is in reclined position in the Select Model. So without reclined position in Base model, not sure how its going to work. I think the tray positioning slots would anyways be there. So please check this out.

I had gone for PVC covering of the floor for about 3k after which the carpet mats provided would itself suffice except for rains. however i need velcro strips to keep the mats attached to the pvc floor. And ofcourse rubber mats for Rainy season.

Hi guys,

Could any Jazz owner give their input on the Rear seat recline feature on Select model during long drives.. Is it a good enough reason to choose Select over the Base.


And what is the waiting list like in Chennai area?
Thanks in advance.

Cheers,
D

Cheers,
Although I haven't been on any long drives yet, nor have I had the pleasure of sitting in the back, my co-passengers have definitely found the reclined state more comfortable to sit, compared to a rigid upright position!

The brackets that hold the rear parcel tray seems to have issues. I have removed the tray and do not hear any sounds now. But a small cling can be heard from inside the seats, my only irritant with the car after 15K kms.

Hi,

I know there is a separate thread for Insurance / Honda Assure but posting it here as I've received some timely and well meant advices from few people here. Counting on their advice once again
Deccan Honda (in Pune) is charging me 22k for Honda Assure. I was advised by a friend to get my insurance from outside (Tata AIG, BA etc). While I understand that it'll result in some much desired saving for us, I was a littel doubtful about the treatment given by other Insurance cos. at the time of claim.
Also, what kind of attitude do service center guys have if we don't have Honda Assure?

All the best! I really hope you like the car!

But, I recommend that you take your mum along as she would be the best judge of her comfort level! The front seats offer excellent cushioning as well as support on all sides though!

Thanks for the heads up xstream_nos! Turned out, I'll have to wait nearly 2 more months to get the ones for the new make!

selfdrive, thanks for the guidance, but unfortunately, they didn't have the ones for the latest Jazz!

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I went for my first service today. The cost was, as expected Re. 0/-. There has been nothing of note, not even a sign of getting my "X-kit"!! I was promised that I will receive it by the 3rd week of July! I wonder why the company that is making the whole damn car, can't produce enough of those spoilers and grills!!

I did tell the Honda service guy that I felt the car's "pick-up" (acceleration from 0) wasn't good enough for a 1200cc mill! I felt it was pretty sluggish compared to my experience with the 100bhp Honda City ZX Vtec's 1500cc! Of course, I expected it to be a tad lower, but not so much!

He seems to have got it fixed! So, the car feels even better to drive! And, the surprising part is, that my earlier "average fuel consumption" was 11.6kmpl according to the instrumentation, but today, after more than 50kms of partly stop-go, partly smooth traffic (even Saturdays aren't a smooth affair in Bangalore), it is reporting 14kmpl! Not a bad upside to getting the car's "pick-up" improved!

I got the same reply in Bangalore too. X-kit hasnt come yet and will take time!!

Dude, Honda Assure is a farce.
It took 15 days for my car to get repaired after the rear windshield was smashed. The dealership had a glass in stock and ideally all work would have taken not more than 2 days. But the dealership waited for insurance company surveyor to come, approve claim and post repair, 1 day for settlement.

The surveyor came 4 days after the car was taken to service station and then there was a weekend, post which a 2 days time for approval.

My insurer here was Royal Sundaram (under Honda Assure) and I already had a 35% NCB which was transferred on this new car. I also had opted for a Zero Dep cover. Since i was planning to claim for the glass i also asked them to paint some minor scratching on the rear door (earlier instance) and cover it under the claim.

The dealership informed me after 10 days that they are still awaiting an approval from insurance company and it make take 8 - 10 days more for the car.

After pulling some strings and presurrising both the dealer and the insurance company I got my car back (both claims settled) after 5 more days.

Take my advice, an online cover is going to cost you upto 40% less and processing time / claim settlement is the same as Honda Assure.

Please feel free to PM me incase you require any details.

I had a recent claim to get a dent fixed on my Jazz. This ran across the left side and covered the rear bumper. The insurance I had was from Oriental Insurance.

So I asked Crystal Honda for a quote and they said around 20K of which insurance will cover only around 11K. Apparently either the bumper work or the left rear door panel would be covered by insurance and the rest to be borne by me. I checked with our friendly neighbourhood garage and got and estimate of 11K (panel and bumper), of which 9K to be reimbursed by insurance claim.

The paint job is a perfect match and this guy did a wonderful job. The only downside is that this insurance policy is not cashless and I need to pay first and collect later. This is still ok for me as I am saving at least 40 - 45% over a similar Honda Assure policy premium. And I am sure you will get better deals online based on your requirements.

So I would not go for Honda assure shield (this is more needed for manufacturers like Skoda I think!) and I am not getting my cars repaired from HASS either. Hopefully no more such repairs

feel free to PM for any details
