 I would imagine that any car motability centre would be able to help you with what you wanting to do in raising the seat. Must be worth looking into.

Just joined the forum after buying 2012 Jazz with 12k miles, from south coast of England in mint condition.

As Iím in Fife, lím keen to ward off rust starting.

How easy is it to DIY treat ?

Are the companies others have used?


If you can jack up a car, secure it safely, wash a car and paint: it's a DIY job
As you will be near the sea in Fife:
1. wash out all wheel arches/sills to remove all mud and salt
2. Leave to dry.
3. Treat any rusty patches by wire brushing, treat with rust preventer.. and then  a Rustproofer/sealant  (I use Dinitrol 4941)
 Vulnerable points: rear wheel arches, rear floor around suspension mounting points, sills in front of rear wheel arches.

Repeat every 2-3 years.
My 10 year old Jazz has been treated like that  and looks as new.

I also spray exhaust with heat proof VHT exhaust paint.

Looks like new
Honda Jazz Mk2 2008-2015 / Gearbox or clutch problem

Hi everyone,
I am here, because, my mechanic could not find anything wrong with my Jazz so I hope one of you had the same issue.

When I drive on my own the car drives perfectly. Only when I have more people in the car, 3+ people and starting in the first gear sometimes the gearbox will start shaking like on the video and the car will make noise as if the car was stalling. It will last for the duration of the journey only in first gear. Once I drive the next day it's ok again. When it's shaking I have trouble starting, and only giving around 5 k revs helps to start more smoothly and it only happens in the first gear under load.

I was thinking it's the clutch but my mechanic says it looks fine. Do you think it could be gearbox? When I bought my Jazz a year ago it had the gearbox regenerated and it always worked well.

I hope the video will be clear to someone who maybe had this problem before. Thank you.

Yes, I am interested in more information about this.
The current low passenger seat height makes it difficult for me to get in and out of the Jazz.

Just on the alloy wheels thing - I much prefer the appearance but, over time, they can deteriorate and, even if careful, it's difficult to avoid the odd scratch. They can be difficult to clean as well.

Hi all,

I have a 2002 VTi  / auto. When I am cruising along a flat road, as I get to a lower speed limit around 50 kmh, I lift off the throttle, then when I get to the very end of the throttle lift, the car noticeably feels like it engine brakes. So i put a small amount of throttle on to compensate, get back to speed, lift of the throttle gently and the process repeats, so I am on and off the throttle all the time. The gearbox itself has been serviced not too long ago so all new oil and checks seemed good. I have tried it in different modes with the same result (Low/Sports etc). it is most noticeable on flat or slight decline when not much throttle input is required.

Any clues as to what might be going on?

Many thanks

Must have:
Climate control
Alloy wheels
Leather steering wheel
Electric windows all round
Remote central locking
Heated mirrors
Reversing camera, at least on most modern cars
Parking sensors (ditto)
Metallic paint

Nice to have:
LED headlights
Heated steering wheel
Sat Nav
Leather seats
Cruise control

Rather not:
Black alloy wheels

Deal breaker:
Climate controls operated via a touchscreen
