I have always thought maybe its the price of the Jazz that younger buyers dont buy? The problem is that older people buy for the reliability, the flexibility then its marked down as one for geriatrics which is unfair on Honda I guess

Just joined ClubJazz after buying a 2014 Jazz in Sweden this week. Primary residence in the U.S. and currently have a 2014 Honda Accord Hybrid and wife has a 2007 Fit. As noted in my intro, started buying Honda products in the late 80's. Have owned a 1991 Accord wagon, 1994 Accord Coupe, 2000 Insight Hybrid, and a 2005 Accord Hybrid.

Bought the Jazz because of the efficiency, flexibility, and assumed reliability of the vehicle. Not in a hurry to get anywhere, particularly during visits to Sweden. At the same time, don't want to be bothered with service appointments etc. Look forward to detailing my sight unseen new to me car next week. Should keep me out of trouble and busy for awhile. Also look forward to driving a five-speed again after many automatics over the years.

Will seek advice from this Forum if problems arise and update with any surprises.

regards

tim

Greeting ClubJazz.

I am 42, and have never been a boy racer or a car fanatic of any kind; it's a means to an end for me.

I bought a 2014 Jazz almost three weeks ago. I spent weeks looking for something significantly more economical than my 54 plate 1.6 Vauxhall Meriva without venturing in to diesel territory. I no longer needed the room or the ride height afforded by the Meriva. I found online reports for various cars to determine real world mpg, usually being disappointed by my findings. Eventually I made what appears to have been a sensible decision. And I've had some ribbing at work regarding the impending blue badge and disability conversion and so on  ::)

Interesting read! In Hong Kong where I was born, many Jazz have rear spoiler and body kit etc. I have put a rear Mugen roof spoiler myself two years ago , painted the brake caliper yellow and upgraded the steering to the leather one! When the current generation came out in 2015, I felt it was really boring and commented that to Honda UK. Luckily, the facelift version looks more younger, black alloys etc. Hopefully people in their 30's will buy it- it's a really good car.

But then again, I am not sure Honda UK wants to go that direction to upset their mature customers-after all, do they want to associated themselves with "boy racer"?

I brought the 2009 Salbert blue ES i-Shift in 2012 and I was 45! Would I have considered a Jazz in my 20's probably not. Probably due to cost.

I remember, back when I was a lad, the only people who could afford to buy, and more importantly insure, "hot" saloons, were old duffers as I am now.
Those were the days of the HA Viva SL.

Wow! Nice.

Mind you, in my 20's, I brought a new Honda Civic 4dr Bel-Air on finance!  We had a VW Jetta 1.3 E reg but after six years was really unreliable, coped with horrible service from VW dealers, enough was enough.

I saw the New Civic Coupe and was going for it but I lived at home at the time and my parents kept saying it's better to buy a 4 Dr with air con. So that's how I was introduced to Honda and we had that car for 17 yrs until I replaced it with my current Jazz!

I am 46, and drive a very quick Lotus.  I've had the pee ripped a few times because I drive a Jazz.  Little do they know eh lol.
The Jazz has it all, I love the drive.  Being a petrol head who likes fast cars, yes, more power would be beneficial, but its fine to be fair, as long as your willing to rev it. ;)

And if you add premium petrol like Shell V-Power, it does go quicker. PS. I don't have shares in Shell! Lol!

I am female 25, turning 26 and my 2013 Mk2 Honda Jazz is my first car. Bought a 2nd hand and low mileage.
I get teased a lot from my friends for having a grandma's car but I think I made the right investment. I did a lot of research and got a lot of advice from learned people telling me this is a solid and reliable car if I don't plan to be a racer girl wannabe.

Hi Babyjazz

You won't be disappointed with your Jazz. I run the same and 70,000 odd miles with no problems / failures.

Had it for over four years and never regretted it. Zoom off to S of France a couple of times a year, 35 miles a day for work or travelling up and down the country also for work upto 500 miles a day. Best car I've ever had.

Wait until your friends want to move house and you are going to help and turn grandma's car into an estate. ;)

That grandma/pa car is just something here in some European countries. In Asia and the US the Jazz (Fit) is very popular among young- people and families.

I was 23 when I bought my first Jazz.

Some guy at work in his early 30s has a Mk2. He's from a Asian country originally though where clearly the Jazz has a different image.
Please do not email or PM me about Honda Jazz issues - search or post in the forums. Thanks
