The engine firewall area should cost about 1.5-2k in Wurth mats. This will reduce engine noise. For the wind noise, usually the rubber beadings on the windshield and the beadings over the body are the culprits. Also, check your door alignment etc. Its not easy to fix, currently my car has this issue after A.S.S. had made some adjustments :-(

The windows do not rattle to be exact but they vibrate a lot.

Update- The car interior was stinking a lot today morning. Found a dead rat in the spare wheel compartment. Wonder how it got there since our area is free of rats. I can safely assume that it happened at the service center.

The remains are out but and the cabin has taken up half a can of room freshner but the stink remains. I have opened up all the windows for the night. Should be ok by tomorrow.

I loved the way Jazz has replaced my WagonR. Due to diwali the Goods haulers were off duty. We needed to carry a 150 kgs box to the airport.

Viola! Honda Jazz came in use.

It indeed is a very versatile car.

I do think though that the lower lip in the boot luggage area should've been flat. I have seen this in one car but cannot remember which.

I had the opportunity to drive a White Jazz Select bought by a colleague a couple of days ago which has done just 350kms. Took it out or a spin of 10-15kms and these are my thoughts :-

a) The best view from inside a car. I felt like sitting inside an aquarium, so much visibility felt almost surreal

b) Gearshift is puny to hold and not that great to slot. I mean it does not give a pleasurable feeling when you slot a gear

c) Ingress and Egress is fantastic. I am 6.1ft and it was a breeze

d) Steering wheel look and feel is terrific. Felt great to hold that steering wheel and feel is also very nice

e) This is where it disappointed me. It's power didnt impress me at all. It didnt look like 90bhp. I tried with AC on and off and there is a difference in these modes

f) Nothing happens until 2K. After that there is a gradual increment in power. I went up to 3500 rpm and power was just about alright. Darn, maybe i am totally spoilt by my car's brutal power. For that matter, my i10 Kappa feels more peppier. Probably due to power to weight ratios

g) Didnt quite like the music system. Very ordinary and also the center console could have been done up slightly better. The knobs are chunky and old fashioned. Otherwise, interior plastics are very good indeed.

I couldnt really test the handling as my colleague was already on tenterhooks so didnt want to gift him a panic attack.

I was totally bowled over the aquarium feeling and is indeed a futuristic looking city car

Yes, the visibility around is really nice.

Update: I have noticed myself reaching for the pilot lights everytime to find the place empty. Really bad. Even the WagonR had it.

Also the magic seats are working out nice for me. On my way to work I flip the seat to carry things on the floor instead. There are also hook like things on the seat bottom to hang bags.

PS: Comparing the Jazz to the WagonR I definitely feel the need for the reclining option for rear seats. But then you get some you lose some.

Overall I am getting adapted to the much hated H.

Update: Yesterday morning for the first time Ahmedabad was chilly. On my way to tennis, the door open warning light came up quite a number of times. The same problem has not happened again since.

PS: Does anybody know if there is an ECU update for the Jazz around?

9000 kms running repairs update:

I have had to go to the workshop twice to get the running repairs. Not good. On my last visit, I had to wait 30 minutes. Again not good. But the car was repaired properly and returned to my home. Also feedback calls made twice. I am happy.

1. I had problems with the windows rattling when only 1 inch down. Problem solved.
2. The rear left seat had started to rattle like many other Jazz users had mentioned. Problem solved.
3. I got my second 3M coat using the coupon which was part of the deal. I still have one more coat to go.

The car has settled to giving 17kmpl in the city with a/c. I can extract more but it is a pain in the leg. :P Factoring in the highway cycle, the Fuel Efficiency is 20kmpl in total.

The speakers sound better now and I assume it is because they have burned in/ calibrated properly.

I was informed that it happens due to misalignment of the seat lock and the hook.

I think my car may also have the above issue will report the same during next free service which is 15 days away.

Also 17kmpl is very good in City i noramlly achive about 13.5-14.
Does average tend to improve after 2nd or 3rd service?

THe rattle seems to be a universal issue in the windows and seats. So we can call it a defect.

I haven't seen a change in the mileage yet. But then our driving styles and city conditions differ.

Honda Jazz has a manufacturing defect


Was this a common defect Jazz owners come across?

Checked. Doesn't happen with my jazz - the cover stays locked.
