Latest from "Fully Charged", a Range Rover conversion. I would love one of these.

And some serious off-roading, near the end of the video. A descent I wouldn't fancy, in the Jazz!

Deffo doesn’t work, warm enough today to tell.  SWMBO doesn’t want to play parts roulette so just going to live with it for now.  Worse case senario it gets super scorchio, SWMBO uses my 11 year old GD and I use my Disco.  Now that’s a hot summer guaranteed!!!!  :o

We have a number of engineering bods on the forum and I wondered if there is an engineering definition of "unreliable" for any given piece of technology?
We used to measure Mean Time Between Failures. MTBF would be measured in Hours, Miles, Cycles, or whatever was appropriate for the piece of kit.

When I sold the Volvo, the guy told me he would try and get there on time, but if he was a little late it was because he had two buses and a 15 minute walk to get here. It wasn't 100 miles, but I was fairly confident he was interested!

As to the cvt you have to pay more on most motability aps and i remember even the jazz used to be over the thousand mark so they have come down a lot whereas other aps for many are a lot higher.

It certainly is if you don't want a CVT and more height. Straight forward Jazz is nil upfront. Unfortunately CVT does require payment.
Given it's reliability record it should be a no brainer.

Well the honda jazz is no sports car in seating area and is pretty high driving position unless you need to climb up but for most disabled even in wheelchair its just right.

There’s another thread about “reliability” that’s worth a browse:
Some comments in there about what we mean by “reliability”, eg some contributors felt that only defects that actually immobilised a car would be reason enough to call the car unreliable. Some surveys use data from warranty companies, ie if an owner has felt strongly enough about something to get it fixed under warranty then that gets factored into some quantitative measure of “reliability” (doesn’t work for manufacturer’s warranties though, they don’t publish that data, nor for defects that aren’t covered by the warranty).

Personally I think there’s a missing piece of the puzzle, which is the methodology for translating a list of defects into a measure of reliability. That would involve making assumptions about the severity of any defect, whether it affected safety, performance, environment, and any number of other things. That’s going to be very subjective. It’s probably possible to base something around your drug analogy but I doubt there’s a universally-agreed way of doing that.

Regarding your TPMS issue, it’s undoubtedly annoying for you and I wouldn’t belittle that. But it only occurs intermittently, it doesn’t prevent you driving the car (after manually checking the tyres, of course), and it can be reset easily. Should that brand the car as “unreliable” ?

I’ve had my cvt for a month having swapped from a 6 speed manual jazz, on a daily 40 mile commute both urban and motorway driving it is a revelation so easy no more swapping cogs for me! I tested a sport and would have liked one but I can’t live without climate control so plumped for an EX it accelerates faster than my old jazz on both urban and motorways and revs are lower on normal motorway driving. If you want to get a move on pushing the loud peddle past the notch at the bottom of travel revs it to the red line and surprises many bigger rep mobiles  ;) coming from a motorcycling background I love high reving engines
