For me in bumper to bumper traffic also I am getting 12.5 kmpl. Strange that on highway my car is not doing great. Maybe I will calculate again. (hope I made a calculation mistake or my last tank full wasn't actually tank full)

I really think you must have made a calculation mistake or you must have used some seriously bad fuel. My highway average has always been close to 17kmpl with AC and pedal to metal kind of driving.

How much is your ODO reading, check the owners manual if spark plugs have to be changed. But as far as i remember, Honda uses iridium type plugs which last around 100k kms. Also check for clogged engine air filter. Does your clutch feel spongy? If yes,it might be slipping,in such case,check if it can be adjusted.

With respect to your problem of brake pedal having vibrations while braking, i dont have any such problems. Check for brake pad and disc wear. If its not uniform, the pedal will vibrate. I suggest you take it to the SVC and get all these problems sorted out.
Wishing you many more happy miles with your new Jazz

Soon I will be getting it serviced. What things should I ensure to improve it?
Also when I apply breaks urgently at higher speeds, break pedal gives a feedback (noticable vibration). It is normal or is there something I need to get checked?

Any suggestions are welcome.

Thanks in advance.
As stated by fellow BHPians, the mileage seems to be pretty low from highway standards. If I treat the throttle nicely, the mileage easily comes to +/- 20 any given day.
You must state it explicitly in your next service schedule. Or I suggest you prepone the servicing instead of waiting of waiting for "The" schedule.

Vibration in high speeds is what (I think) ABS is all about. It has that alternate breaking pattern/system which prevents the wheels from locking up. I experienced it with mine and the the vibration came to me as a natural phenomena. However I am no Honda engineer, hence get it clarified by the service professional.

Cheers and wish you safe driving with the beauty!

Has anyone faced issues on the driver side power windows? My windows seem to be sticking and the one touch feature is erratic. All other windows seem to be fine. This is the only irritant currently.

My cousin had a similar problem in his jazz (even I had one in my swift). The problem in his case was a faulty motor. As it was constantly used, the window slowed down when it was pulled up and the driver side motor had to be replaced (not sure whether it was replaced but it had something to do with motor).

I have the exact same issue. It developed around a month back. Took the car to SVC as i had a free wash coupon also. SA checked and said master switch needs replacement. But during the cleaning process, they blew high pressure air and the problem has never happened again and i decided not to get the master switch changed. Suggest you to give it a blast of high pressure air to remove all dirt and dust. Its probably a contact problem. My window up down function worked properly,only auto up-down function was not working sometimes.

Greetings,I am planning to get an used jazz. Will I find it difficult to get the spare parts in the near by future.
Also in what price range could I fetch an used 2009 base model with around 50k on the Odo?

I recently got a second hand Nov 2012 Jazz x for 4.5 lac (including dealer commission). 2009 Model shouldn't cost more than 4 lac.

Also I got my first servicing done. Parts too shouldn't be an issue as they are available for 15 years the model is taken out of market.

Will monitor for mileage now, hope it improves.

Im not very sure about the price. But Spare parts come easy if your at a Honda dealership. Some parts like door panels,windshields,etc(which you can call are "not running" parts) may require a time of 7-10 days for the dealer to procure. Ive never had any issue with parts like air filters,oil filters,which are to be changed at regular intervals.
Any honda car that you buy,will have a service history at the dealer level. You can note down the registration number and tally the service records present with the dealer for complete peace of mind.
And the Jazz is a wonderful car, you can opt for it with your eyes closed.

Can you please post the snapshot of the invoice, or just share what all was changed and for how much. Will be helpful for other owners.

Mods: Sorry for making back to back posts,will use the multi-quote option from next time. I forgot about it while making the first post.

Has any one faced issue with defogging during rains?I have a Dec 2012 model. Last year i didn't drive much in rain and hence had ignored this problem.
When it starts raining the defogging system doesn't really work well as the fog stays on the windscreen but is most of the time from outside. This results into less than good visibility. I keep the air circulation on the external air as indicated, with AC on cooling mode. My earlier super old (2000 model) Santro did the defogging pretty quick.
This has been the case since day 1, as I had observed the defogger to be less effective when I drove the car on day of delivery, but thought I haven't tuned the knobs to best position.
Thanks!

I have this outside windscreen fogging issue and have not been able to solve it after 4 monsoons. I tried all possible combinations and even tried wurth wash liquid. Its fogs up when I use the wipers, but clears immediately after the wipe is done.

Any suggestions? I also suspect my windscreen sun film, I have the 3M CR70 on it.

Pickup/acceleration/torque is definitely not a Jazz's forte. I think it is just about adequate. Even on the highways, it engine feels sluggish.

However, I think it makes up for lack of power with fuel economy. I think in the end its a great balance and definitely suits fuel conscious customers.

One thing that I really don't understand is the ground clearance. I think it has been a problem with almost all the Honda cars. Especially in Bangalore, its heart wrenching every times you have to go over a bumper and listen to the bottom scraping against the road.

I think the 2014 model especially the Diesel is something to look forward especially if they fix the ground clearance issue. In terms of the rest of the things, I think its a great car with amazing seating space, and the dashboard is quite futuristic.
