Re: Honda Jazz : Official Review

My dear fellow Jazz owners who have installed LED Headlights with external drivers (like the OSRAM ones), could you please share pics of the installation. Thank You.

Re: Honda Jazz : Official Review

I have my jazz cvt in for service at ~48000kms. The service executive suggests that my break pads are good for another 1500-2000 kms, and will need changing after that. The cost will be 4500. The cost for break pad replacement is about 1500 with local mechanic. Is there a difference or is Honda changing a premium?

Re: Honda Jazz : Official Review

2019 VX CVT. About to complete 4 years extended warranty this month. Is it worth extending warranty? My running is like 4-5k per year(17.5k kms currently in ~4 years) and hence servicing once in 6 months hurts a lot (5-6k min bill everytime). If I don’t renew extended warranty, will service only once a year. If it was manual, wouldn’t have bothered but CVT fixing bill is pretty high. So in two minds here.

Long term honda CVT owners, do you see any issues with the gearbox once the car crosses 40-50k kms? If you could share your experience, would be helpful?

Thanks in advance

Hats off to the SA, for predicting brake pad life with the precision of 1500-2000 kms . I'm sure he is simply banking on the hope that you won't really come back for just that, in a matter of 2 months or so. Instead, on your next visit later - there can be more items pushed into the bill. All business gimmicks. (OR - he/they simply don't want to do this work this time around and are pushing for next visit.)

Definitely get it done at local FNG (if known to be reliable). The premium isn't justified if the FNG is installing correct spec pads.

Given a 4-5K KMs per year run - the EW will lapse even if you buy it, before you actually hit 40-50K Kms. EW makes sense only to those who have extremely high running per year. Personally so far I have opted for EW and rarely has it been actually used (in fact never). Going forward - I have more or less made up my mind that I won't be spending that high amount on extended warranties - especially if buying an established product (which the Jazz also is). The binding on pathetic service experience, higher service costs, poor service scedules AND restriction on modifications that I can do in the car (electricals) are not worth what the modern extended warranties bring. And CVTs are more or less reliable. One in a few thousands will definitely fail - its a machine afterall. But there are no known concerns with Honda CVTs. They are known to be reliable.

Re: Honda Jazz : Official Review

I bought a 25000km run pre-owned 2017 VX Petrol MT Jazz 8 months back. I gave the car for service immediately after buying. My car has run only 3300kms after I bought. I didn't give the car for service at 6 months interval but planning to give at 1 year despite desperate calls from Honda dealerships. No problems so far, touch wood. Anyone else following 1 year service interval for pre- facelift Jazz? What are your experiences and advice?

Re: Honda Jazz : Official Review

As a thumb rule; If mineral oil is used for the engine, it is recommended to get it changed every 5000 kms / 6 months. But if synthetic oil is used, oil change can be done once in 10000 kms / 1 year. But even with synthetic oil, it is better to get the vehicle inspected every 5000 kms / 6 months.

In any case it is always better to get the services done as per the company’s guidelines.

Believe me, Honda services are a lot cheaper than even Maruthi. Why take chances?

First noticed it in the Honda Connect app and then confirmed with the dealership.They did not call me for my 42 months service. When i got in touch with them, I was told, that my next service is due only for the 48 month/4th year completion. No more six month ritual,
Since the change is done from their end and is logged in their systems, there should be no problem when it comes to honoring the warranty.

On another note. Spotted not 2 or 3 but 5 Honda Jazz (4 new gen and 1 old) outside an eatery in Chennai. This is a rarity given that I have not seen these many even at Honda service centers/showrooms.

What’s the month of manufacturing of your model? Is it BS6? Mine is BS4. BS6 onwards i.e. April 2019 manufacturing year onwards it is 1 service a year. But for BS4 models i.e. one’s manufactured till March 2019 are BS4 and have 6 month service interval.

In connect app for my model it shows 6 months itself. And I have even checked with ASC folks, they say we have to stick to whatever is mentioned in manual in order to keep warranty intact.

In 2019, it was all BS4. Mine is a July'19 BS4 vehicle. BS6 Jazz came only by June 2020 along with a facelift after a brief disappearance from the market. Not sure if my service schedule change is a one off thing and they get it reversed after seeing these posts.

Yeah my bad, BS6 was from 2020 April. But yours' definitely looks one off case. I rechecked with my ASC again and they mentioned the same thing. BS4 ones have 6 months schedule, BS6 has once a year schedule.

You probably will get to know when some warranty claim situation comes

CYA. Keep screenshots and call logs from honda connect. Great to have written confirmation regarding your next scheduled service and such.

The difference is also present in cost of OEM Parts and aftermarket ones.

What is the difference between them apart from the cost? Is the 2-3 fold price difference justified?

Re: Honda Jazz : Official Review

Guys, the Digipad 2.0 (or that new infotainment unit on the newer models) has got a firmware update which resolves the screen freeze issue when Google Maps is used with the CarPlay. Saw an update from a fellow owner who has got the update installed from the service center (no charges levied) and confirms that this resolves the issue.

PS: Not sure of the bugs that come with this update though!
