Honda Jazz Mk1 2002-2008 / Re: Rattling sound from under

How would I know that he definitely replaced both of them?
A quick look behind the wheels will soon tell. New ones are clean metal, old ones are rusty. Just turn the wheels, in turn, to full lock, and have a look.

 On a separate subject, anyone know how I can improve the reception on my radio Iím getting a lot of  scratchy sound? I have a metal stub aerial.

They are a dawdle to replace as long as you can stop them turning while you undo them. My mechanic just ground through the fixing.

Thereís a video on YouTube about replacing them as well and it seems really easy.

Honda Jazz Mk3 2015 - / Re: I'm outta here :)

I've been looking at replacing my Jazz for a while (my normal cycle is every three to four year). Not particularly seriously but I'd already pencilled in upgrading to the new hybrid version when it finally appears. But last week I looked at the CR-V and just wasn't impressed. If that's their new hybrid technology then they are on to a loser. It is neither as powerful nor as economical as the Toyota RAV4. If that's what's in store for the Jazz then I'm not going to be impressed.

Then there's build quality. Those who know me know that I've had various (albeit minor) issues with my Jazz. None were critical but they all irked and some continue to do so. I've also never felt that the interior design was well thought out, with everything feeling thrown together. And as for the technology side, well Honda just failed miserably there. It works but it's a sad shadow of what it could be.

Whilst perusing the Toyota website I noticed how good their range was (although somewhat more expensive) so decided to visit a dealer. I had a good look at and a test drive of a Corolla hybrid. It was great to see modern technology put to proper use (it has a colour LCD screen for the dashboard) and hey, their CVT implementation is smooth as silk all the time. No need to fight with an Atkinson mode - although ironically that's because they can run their engine in that mode all the time.

But anyway I've put a deposit down so that's the end of my 18 years of being a Honda customer. Poor customer service. Poor design. Poor build quality. And now it seems they can't even come out with a decent engine. Perhaps they should have rebadged Toyota's drive train since they make it available to other manufacturers.

It's been fun and even educational on these forums and I might come back with a road test report in a few weeks (but I won't if I can't avoid gloating :) ). Drive safe everyone.


Sorry that your leaving,you have provided myself  and others I am sure some very useful information and views
Good luck hope you have  made the right choice.

I wonder why Toyota have gone back to the Corolla label?  In terms of market position, the Jazz seems to lie between Yaris/Polo/Corsa/Fiesta and Corolla/Golf/Astra/Focus.  When I chose my Jazz's in 2008 and 2016, I compared them with the larger competitors, as the smaller ones had insufficient interior space.  In the end the decision was based on price and/or reliability, plus the fact that the Jazz gave me the space I wanted within a 4m overall length, with enough performance for my needs.

But, at risk of raising an old chestnut, I thought, and still think, the Mk2 Jazz was a more coherent offering to the Mk3 and the interior was much more practical especially in the dashboard area.
The Mk2 was great. Part of the problems I have with the Mk3 is that it felt like a step down at least in terms of care and attention. The Mk2 had some great ideas, especially how they fitted out the boot. The Mk3 just gave us a polystyrene filler and flimsy floor. The Corolla is similar in that respect but at least there I don't know what the Auris was like so have nothing to compare it with.

Hopefully there will be no rust issues but I shall keep a close eye on it. I don't know if there's a similarly good Toyota forum as this one yet. You're a great bunch :)

Had them replaced, knocking sound seems to have stopped so thx for that. 

Feel a bit annoyed inlaid £90 but there you go.  Checked with Lloydís motor spares and they quoted £48+vat for the pair.  Not sure if they are better quality than the £13.95 pair ones.  Suppose I would be tempted too.
