Dear suzuki san,

Let me try .....

Very difficult to answer. For a three year old car, that seems a bit on the higher side. I would suggest that you drive it (if possible, also take a friend along who has some experience with automatic petrol cars - better still if he has experience of CVT cars), use the TBHP checklist and finally use your gut feeling. Sorry - I can't do better than that!

I guess not. My guess is that if the car is as well maintained as claimed then you have very little to worry about.

If at all, you must try to find the 'real' reason why it is in the resale market so soon!

Thanks for going through my thread's pages. Actually, I have no issues with the pickup - it is really good pickup - not sluggish at all!

The ground clearance of 165 mm is more than enough. The worst speed breakers that I encounter are in and around Thane. It goes over without a protest - even when fully loaded. Not that I don't hold my breath!

I think so. I just got an email for my 2015 Jazz. So, I guess you can!

I had this Jazz with me for about one year only. Now my wife 'owns' it. Believe me - I am not allowed to touch the steering!

If she uses it sparingly for a month or two, I get a chance to 'run' it for a couple of weeks - mainly Pune - Mumbai - Pune - a typical run of 350~400 km. This happens about once a year only.

I will have to go through my credit card bills to find how much I have spent on it. Off hand, I would say - very little. Of course, it has been used very lovingly by my wife. It has run mainly within Pune. However, it has done quite a few inter-city runs. The FE is impressive even now. The smoothness is it's main USP. Also - please note - the total running has been about 25,000 km or so only!

My wife says that she will 'never' let me sell it!

Just as a by-comment : my son-in-law was looking for an automatic. My wife let him use the Jazz for a few days. He fell in love with it. My wife does not let me drive it and she told him to keep it! Anyway, he landed up doing test drives of various cars and bought a new Amaze V-CVT!

If you do not find any major issues with the particular car, then go ahead and buy it. The vitamin M involved is a question of perception only!

Regards,

Girish Mahajan

Hi,

I sold off my 2016 Jazz V CVT to a second hand dealer for 5.4L couple of weeks back with 36k on the odo. 11K odo looks bit less for a 2016 car but some users have genuine less usage. Usual things to check are the vehicle service history and get the insurance policy details (From 2016) and see if any claims have been made. Check the tyres. They give an indication of actual Kms run.

Also when inspecting the vehicle, get down and check for any signs of rusting all around and inside engine bay. Pay special attention to the lower areas of the door and areas where door frames are bolted to the body. Also note that Honda had made some minor feature changes since 2016.

Thank you GKMahajan for a very comprehensive and unbiased account of acquisition, usage and maintenance of Honda Jazz CVT.

We were on the hunt for an automatic to replace our decade old Wagon R.
Japanese companies in general, and Hond in particular were the serious contenders.

Finally zeroed in on Honda Jazz , and frankly speaking you sold the car better than the showroom folk.Honda better feature your thread in their Honda Jazz web-page.

Cheers

We, in the family, feel that this was a great decision! The Jazz is a precious possession!

Still, let me be fair about the write up. My feelings are reflected in it. However, the mods - specially GTO - contributed in a big way to make it take proper form. I think this is mainly due to way that TBHP, overall, has contributed to the community.

I hope you are enjoying your Jazz. Are you going to put up your review soon?

Looking forward to it....

Regards,

Girish Mahajan

Finally pulled myself to put up the review.

https://www.team-bhp.com/forum/test-...vt-petrol.html

Please go through it and do share your 2 cents.

Also did you hear about the additional warranty that Honda is offering for its cars? Car can be covered upto 10 years. But i wonder if there are any changes in the Terms and Conditions after the 5th year. The dealer at our town doesn't seem to know the full details.
