These days, with internet etc. people will travel fairly big distances to look at the right car, having read enough of your posts I'm pretty sure your car will be accurately described, their choice (and risk) to travel so far, they aren't doing you a favour, don't let it influence your negotiations over price.

Finding "normal" people with a reasonable attitude to sell a car to seems to have become harder over recent years, when I sold my Vectra (advertised at a reasonable £400) on gumtree, a buyer was outraged I hadn't changed the cambelt, I pointed out it was chain drive engine, but this wasn't good enough for him, he demanded to know when the chain was last changed, my answer only elicited more outrage from him, entertaining as it was, I eventually tired of his company and asked him to leave the premises, the eventual (normal) buyer, drove it, made an offer and we settled at £380, easy. The point being, you may have to deal with a few clowns before your serious buyer comes along, hopefully not! Good luck.

I like the Mk 3 cvt, great for town driving and even cruising on the motorway.
Motorway slip roads and overtaking need planning if you are put off by the sudden raw of the engine when putting your foot down suddenly to speed up.I don't use the paddles.  Best to just put up with that noise occasionally because at other times its so smooth and quiet.
Not having to change gear is a huge bonus and great in stop start traffic. I even like the stop start function as it starts very quickly and surprises the driver behind at traffic lights. The 50 PLUS MPG is miraculous for a petrol non hybrid car. Noise is low as it hardly ever needs to get to 3000 rpm, most of the time it is below or just over the 2000 rpm. Unlike more powerful cars it's dead easy to keep at 20 MPH in a 20 MPH limit. Once you get up to 70 MPH it will happily stay there. Hills are more of a challenge only because it needs more revs like any car and that means more engine noise,  the noise seems out of character because generally it is so quiet and relaxed. On balance that seems a reasonable compromise to me. The real issue is what MPG do you want. The engine is designed to discourage speeding and save fuel. Honda have therefore done a very good job with the 1.3 as most small petrols won't get you much above 40 MPH I reckon. The 1.5 engine has lower MPG (10 MPG less ?) as you would expect from a more sporty drive.

If you look at NGK spark plug number the last two digits are normally the the gap in mm,  so if it ends with 11 it will be 1.1  - plugs are already gapped when you buy them and I have checked but not had to adjust an NGK one for as long as I can remember. Not sure if other makers numbers include the gap in such an easily understood form, or if it is  coded in some way.

Siri eyes free works with the infotainment system via the steering wheel button (long press on the voice button) imho its better than apple car play as itís entirely voice control so no fiddling with touchscreen.

The aircon is auto climate controlled so I just set and forget

Cruise control has to be switched on via the steering wheel Ďmainí button first

You have to press the button on the door window switch panel to fold the mirrors

As for the seat material I donít know how long it will last but on my last mk3 after 2 years and 20000 miles it was still like new

I test drove a 2017 JAZZ EX CVT 1.4 unaccompanied for 1.5 hours on my usual routes and I REALLY LIKE IT  :D

1. F the reviews. I like the car and its now on my buy list. Im going to check out one more different car maybe - to put my mind at rest - but I doubt it'll beat the Jazz overall.

2. I didn't find the CVT a problem at all. Perfectly fine for my life and driving style. I took it on the motorway and its fine cruising at 70 with rpm around 2500 - no noise issues. Only maybe 1-3 gears some rev noise but nothing that bothered me. On the town roads and traffic - great.

3. The driving position 'feels' higher that my Mk1 Jazz - which is good (maybe the seat is just more plump) and the car 'sits' on the road more. I like it. Drove it like my Mk1 at times and it did well - but mostly ill just be driving it easy.

4. I do think the infotainment is very weak. Wish they put Apple CarPlay in or be able to retro add it as thats all you need. Otherwise its very redundant as you can switch between radio stations via the steering wheel - what else do you need the screen for? Im not paying for nav when my phone will always out perform it. I turned the screen off.

5. And the aircon touch buttons aren't ideal. But is it climate control? I didn't get around to working it out if it is. Climate control being the ability to set a temp and it maintain it automatically.

6. I also couldn't get the cruise control to work.

7. To fold the mirrors do you still have to press the button or is there a way to set it auto fold when the car is shut off?

8. How hard wearing is the seat fabric? Seems like it wont wear well - will need a good cover on the driving seat to ensure it doesn't wear out over time.

9. Might try the 1.5 in CVT if I can so I have experience but I dont think I need the extra power but lower mpg and want the smart keyless stuff rather than black alloys.

I don't if things have changed but the CVT versions were always higher geared then the manuals.
Manual about 25mph/1000rpm in top gear.
CVT about 32mph/1000rpm in the equivalent of top gear.

Well i have ordered my jazz cvt sport today and im surprised that honda has cars available in uk as my last car was a seat dsg leon and had to wait for factory  to make it.

When will you take delivery?

Im thinking of buying a Jazz and in a prelim discussion the good salesman said its probably likely most of the range would be available for pick up within a week. I need to check tomorrow. Good incentive if you are in the market for a Jazz / Honda.
