Default Jazz

I subscribed to this newsgroup to learn a bit more about the Jazz, but
nobody says anything about it!

Please tell me anything positive and negative that I should know before
buying one.

Ernest,

I have just bought a SE Sport; very pleased with it - seems to be a quality
car.

Plusses:

- amazingly versatile luggage space
- good visibility, you are quite high up
- excellently rated reliability

Cons:
- poor ride
- little too big for a small car
- no rubber strips in bumpers or doors to prevent parking damage
- needs a 1.5 VTEC engine
- expensive and dealers won't haggle - cos they can't get them
- I find front passenger seat uncomfortable after 20 mins

hope this helps. New 2005 models avail soon; search internet for details.

Davy

Hi Davy

Thanks for your feed-back. Is there a difference between the driver's seat
and the passenger seat? Or their adjustability?

What is your actual fuel economy?

I assume the model you have is the 5 speed manual not the CVT. In South
Africa we have only two choices. Manual or CVT. All cars have the same
trim level with only metallic paint and leather seats options.

Regards

Ernest

Doesn't seem to be any difference between seats so don't know why I find one
less comfortable.

33 miles per gallon around town; nearer 50 on long journeys.

5 speed manual.
