A question to the experts..
Did 2nd gen Jazz had Exedy Clutch as OEM equipment?
Even if not, is Exedy a good replacement clutch option?
Thanks

Hello,

I had previously mentioned in the thread about noises from suspension and a few more which were unrecognizable for me. Honda ASS never checked the vehicle properly and quoted anything from 40k to 80 for the job. (One SA told me to replace steering rack itself )

Recently got the job done by a local garage in Nasik and am pretty happy with it. Mechanic opened all 4 suspensions, checked thoroughly, checked steering system and suggested to replace few parts of the system.

Bought all parts from a local auto spare supplier. All major parts are Talbros brand products. Hope they are good.
Total spend of spares + synthetic oil, oil filter + air filter = 13.5 k.
Labor charges paid = 4k.

After job car performing quite well. No disturbing noises. Only are the ones coming from internal trims.

Will try to get detailed part list as well. While purchasing spares found out that Old Jazz shares many parts with Civic and City.

Major learning from the job: find a outside garage you can trust and they will do the job just fine. Never found Honda ASS to be techincally sound. I own a City as well and so have a good experience of dealing with Honda ASS in Nasik and Pune.

5 Years - 26000 KMs and still going strong with the 2nd generation Jazz Petrol base variant face lift model in Urban Titanium color as seen below:

Related post here about the face-lift version :

( http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/indian...ml#post2472774 (Honda slashes price on Jazz as well ? EDIT: Launch pics of new Jazz Pg.56) )

Always wanted to write an Ownership review, guess its too late now.

Anyways, will just list out some significant points and the parts that needed attention during the course of these 5 years.

This had only 3 variants but all variants had every aspect of safety & security features by default. Full marks to Honda for not compromising on quality, and safety standards (Unfortunately, no such thing exists now with current generation of Honda's at least in India which is a shame)
  • Dual front SRS Airbags
  • ABS with Break Assist
  • EBD
  • GCON
  • ECU Immobilizer
  • Front seatbelt pretentioner with load limiter
  • Driver seat belt reminder
  • Driver side auto pinch guard
  • Day/Night Inside rear view mirror
  • Rear wiper and defogger

Detail specifications here : http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/indian...ml#post2425834 (Honda slashes price on Jazz as well ? EDIT: Launch pics of new Jazz Pg.56)

Other than the regular service, parts that were replaced or needed attention since purchase :
  • 1 Tyre due to side wall impact during 3rd year of ownership (All of the stock tyres including the spare wheel came with Michelin XM1)
  • Air condition gas top-up alone was done during 4th year of ownership to improve the chillness during summer season. Especially useful since Jazz has a LARGE windscreen.
  • Stock SONIC battery was replaced with AMARON Hi Life FLO-42B20L in the month of August 2017 (at 25344 KMs to be precise)
  • Stock wipers changed were replaced after 4 years & 9 months of ownership ie in July 2017. They were still good for another 6 months but decided to replace them as they have lived their life. Details here : http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/modifi...ml#post4235384 (The 'Wiper Blade' Thread)

  • During the initial 3 years and 8 months of ownership Jazz had covered 21908 KMS (City & Highway drive combined) with an average running of ~16.5 KMs per day. Highway drives have always seen 20 km average FE while in the City it used to be between 13-15 kmpl.
  • However since buying the Scross 1.6 around 16 months ago, Jazz managed to do only 4093 KMs (City drive alone) with an average running of ~8.5 KMs per day.

Odo exactly at 5 years

Just when I was thinking how to pamper Jazz for 5 years of blissful ownership, got a very simple and meaningful gift. Yes and that's the much deserved Live To Drive team-bhp sticker.

Don't know how many more years I can keep her considering the less running per day, but Jazz will Live Long To Be Driven for many many years to come.

Hello jazzers
I have the second gen Jazz (2009) and my key fob has been giving trouble. The lock button isn't working but the unlock works just fine, even at a distance.The battery is also new. I've also been using a leather key cover off Alibaba for a long time, which has surely prevented dust and moisture from getting into the buttons. (WebLink follows-)

Has anyone had a similar issue, and solved it? Help needed!

After ownership of 8 years and 55000km, with the bulk of it in a harsh state- UP, the car has started to give a lot of annoyances now and then.

My last post was regarding a conked out key fob. Sorted it out with an alcohol swab wipe. Dust goes through a leather cover as well

The new niggles with which I require suggestions from my fellow jazz owners are

-a really stiff shift to 1st and 2nd gear. I have no idea how to open up the console and lube it up with WD-40. Also, is it possible to hoist the car up and grease the mechanism from the underbody?

-shredded gear shift boot/gaiter (the faux leather cover in between the gear knob and center console). Again, this requires a dismantling of the center console and installation of a replacement from aliexpress perhaps. Has anyone done the same?

-The stereo system has a button to scroll through track name-folder name-file name-album name in the CD player mode. Well, it doesn't work anymore and I've been stranded on the option where it just displays the track number. Anyone with similar issues and did you fix it? The clock adjust button has also become useless but with a little cruel pushing, it does work. The other button, NEVER

Help me out, I love the car and want it for up to 1,00,000 Kms. Would be difficult with all these annoying niggles, unless someone can help sort them out!

Thanks
