GC is an issue - but not a big one. I have scrapped in some innocous looking bumpers due to speed and load. But again the area that gets scrapped predominantly is the horizontal beam that s a supporting structure and hence not such a big issue.

While every car can scrap at few bumpers, jazz scraps a few more as well. Just be careful.

I have a Jazz Rallaye Red. I mostly drive the car alone and have not had any GC problems even with the ridiculous Bangalore bumpers. However, with family (read 4 adults including driver) in the car, I kiss every bumper on the road (well almost!).

There was a suggestion on one of the Honda City threads about driving at an angle to avoid the bumpers. So far, that has not been able to help me much. Heard through a friend that increasing the tyre pressure to about 35 psi helps. I am keep all the four at 30 psi as suggested and I am not sure if the tyre pressure idea is really worth trying or not.

Any thoughts?

I don't know about the Jazz, but my fiesta used to scrape the road hump when fully loaded. I increased the tyre pressure to the manufacturer recommended and after that I rarely scraped any. Yes, there were a few, but those humps were really huge. So tyre pressure might be the issue here. Why don't you try going to the recommended pressure when fully loaded and observe if there is any difference.

I agree with shiva. 30 psi is too low for 5 people/fully loaded. Recommended for normal is 32 front and 30 rear. I suggest you increase it to at least 32 all around and see. If you are yet scraping, then increase it in stages till 34.

My Battery packed up after 25 months. Started giving issues few months ago and now completely dying on me. Unusual for Honda. Was a SF battery.

It is usual for OEM battery, especially SF. I have never had any good experiences with any OEM battery. My battery was also weak to begin with, it seems to just manage.

Any idea where I can get good quality seat covers for my Jazz. I feel the original seats are bit too hard. I want seat covers that can give some cushioning too (only a little bit of cushioning).

You can get it from the dealers themselves. Dakshin Honda on Hosur Road had a few options of which I selected the faux leather ones & am very happy with the same. I was also looking for a little bit of cushioning and find these working for me. Check them out for yourself.

Check out seat covers from auto form as well. Really good quality and provide a bit of cushioning as well.

My friend is very keen to put an arm rest for the front seat for his Jazz.
Is it possible and if yes where to get it in Chennai?

thanks

Generally the OEM Seats are good in Honda Jazz. However the beige getting dirty is the issue. The problem with seat cover on the other hand is that if it slacks out then it would give problem in long distance driving.

To put it in perspective - how much would it cost to replace entire seat vs seat cover.
I am happy with the OEM seats and could live with it if its not more than thrice the cost of seats.

The OEM seat covers have a Zip and is removable and washable,so you don't need to replace the entire seat.
I hope honda just sells the existing stock seat covers.

Here you go. Though they are not easily removable, but they are something that you'd call skin fit. They feel like factory fit seat covers.

Try Imperial Leathers near IIM Bangalore. Check this link (Seat Covers: Imperial INC (Bangalore))in the forum on Imperial leather, their contact details.

Shivakumar 9448685679
Imperial Inc.
#387, 11th Cross,
Vijaya Bank Layout, Bilekahalli, B.G. Road (Behind IIM Blore)

I had installed seat covers for my Jazz from them. They remove the OEM seat cover and stitch a new one in leather or art leather depending on your choice and install it.
Dont have any pictures of my jazz.

hope this helps
