I'm not very fond of the GK Jazz standard centre armrest console and closed storage under it. I like more lower and open console so that it's easier put and get stuff and it'd be possible to reach rear floor when driving.

I found out that Canadian DX trim GK Fit has such console with par number 83401-T5R-A01ZA as seen one on the picture below. After rather long research I finally found a source and way to get it to Finland with reasonable shipping costs. It will take several months, but it should be here next spring. I just need to invent a smart way to mount the seat heater switches to the new console.

After couple of days the shop informed me that the part is discontinued so they cannot deliver. Search continues...  :(

Some days ago we made a 800 km (500 mile) road trip with trailer to collect some timber from eastern Finland. Here is the combination ready for the trip, just need to unplug the block heater.


And this is the load. 6,5 mē of 50 mm thick hand hewn timber panels. Total mass of the trailer and load is about 450 kg, which is the maximum un-braked trailer mass for the Jazz.

That's a real trailer load, I'd have had to think about towing it twice even with my old Subaru Legacy. Great photos once again.

As I mentioned the load is within Jazz's allowed towing mass and I tow stuff quite regularly, so it's not any problem. Especially in summer conditions.

Only thing why this wasn't my favourite trip was that you need to remember in every crossing and roundabout that you are towing a trailer. Take it super carefully during and after every turn until the combination is straight. Otherwise the trailer starts sliding and it can endanger others or even hit the rear corner of your own car. I learned it from one crash years ago when my empty trailer hit the rear corner of a parked car.

Originally I planned to collect the timber with my light truck, but it's in garage waiting for spares to arrive from abroad.
