I took my Jazz for a 1200 Kms highway crunching drive and what a joy it was. It feels absolutely fantastic both on 100 kmph highway cruises and on twisters at some of the minor ghats that are present on Mumbai-Kolhapur-Goa route.

Overall mileage: 18.4 kmpl and this includes some 200 km drive within Goa itself.
Total passengers: 4 including myself (I am the driver here)
Luggage: Boot utilized to the maximum

Dear All,

I am taking delivery of my white Jazz X during the Navratra's. I want to get the 3D Kagu mats for my beauty. Can anybody please suggest some outlet or any number for the same. Also what is the approximate price to expect for the same. Thanks in advance.

Default Used Jazz - 7.5K run - 6.4L - good deal?

Guys, an acquaintance is selling his 1 year old Jazz Select (7.5K on the odo), since he is relocating. The car is Bangalore registered and apparently well maintained. No significant accessories have been fitted (only a reverse sensor).

He is looking at a price of around 6.4L. The on-road price for Jazz Select in Bangalore is ~7.6L. So, this is around a 1.2L discount over the price for a new car.

Do you guys think this is a good deal? Do let me know your thoughts.

I think you can get a fair judgment using car valuation tools offered by some Indian portals like "Carwale", the price of 6.4 lac seems to be on the higher side as petrol vehicles are not in demand.

IMO try to seal the deal around 5 lac mark...good luck !

Has anyone faced a sticky clutch on the Jazz? The pedal would go all the way down and remain stuck. Will return after a press or two.

The clutch release point is also way down. The service center bleed the clutch and feels better now. My car has run 17500kms.

no issues at my end. I presume there is no obstruction like aftermarket mats such as those 3D Kagu mats etc.

Do you (or the person who drives the car the most) drive with a heavy foot on the clutch normally?

I don't think 3D Kagu mats can be the cause for this. They should not obstruct the path as they are designed according to the contours of the car.

You may be correct, I dont have the specifics of those mats or how they were installed.
I would not know, I dont have those. I mentioned them because I dont know any other aftermarket types.

Just when we had started enjoying our Jazz, had gotten done with first servicing etc, we are to travel abroad for 6 months. It hurts. We're leaving the beauty in a friend's care.

I can imagine how it would feel staying away. However, the car is typical Honda. Leave her alone for a couple of weeks and she will still start at the first crank. In essence, a short ride once in a while is ok enough. Now that would be a bit challenging if it were a diesel mill

It should be fine though, my Jazz has done hardly a 100 kms in the last 6 months due to some other reasons.

selfdrive! that was quite reassuring, I must say. We've requested our friend to take her for a spin once or twice in a month and get the servicing done at regular intervals.

I have been assigned duties to spin around an i20 and a WagonR once in a while too. I am hoping the next guy who goes onsite has a diesel car which I can drive around every day.
No issues though as these are the people who kept the wheels turning for my bikes when I was not around. What goes around, comes around

If you need any info while you are not around, feel free to PM me

There is a mat, but that doesnt cause any obstruction. I do not ride the clutch. My Alto's clutch lasted me about 30K kms. They still had life, but was hard. Does Honda clutch last lesser?

IMO Honda clutches are one of the best. In my old City, it lasted more than 50k km 6+ years with tons of revving/downshifting. Could still make the tires squeal in 2nd gear after that time. Sold it off with the original clutch.

That's way too short, my Santro Xing's clutch is yet to be changed (~ 70k kms, that too in Delhi)... it only little bit harder lately as compared to newer Santro's. Not sure what's incorrect in your case.
