The handbrake could be better (or is it just me?).
See other posts regarding getting the best out of the disc handbrake.

I agree. But disassembly of the pads and greasing with suitable grease all contact surfaces - as I did when I changed the rear pads- transforms it.

Good point - the roomyness inside the car despite my 6'2" size.
Bad Point - the rear view mirror seems its almost too low down on the windscreen...

So far, a lot of good point. I have the 2015 EX CVT without the paddleshifters.

The good, roominess and magic seat. I am surprised by the mileage I get from my fuel cost.

The bad so far is that the rear wheel arc does not have plastic cover/lining. I noticed it as I was walking around after having it washed. The front wheel arch does have plastic liners but the rear ones does not for some odd reason making it more susceptible to rust
 Okay, maybe there is a very little part of it that does but it is almost negligeable as it is so little.

For me, the good points are the reliability, practicality, ease of driving, safety, and ease of parking. Bad points? I guess the engine is a bit course at high revs, but if driven smoothly even that isn't an issue.  This is my second Jazz, and it's a wonderful car. I wouldn't drive anything else now.

The worst feature of my Mk 2 Jazz was the reflection of dashboard glare on the windscreen which was discussed at some length a while back. The extent of this problem appears to depend on the driver's eyeball position which in turn depends on driver's height and seating position. I just happened to be unlucky.

I just ordered a new HR-V (for delivery 27 January 2019).  Do you still get the issue John?

My glare problem is much reduced with the HR-V - a consequence, I suspect, of a steeper windscreen changing the angle of reflection and the dashboard also being shorter. I also found the glare on the Mk 3 Jazz to be less than the Mk 2 but the big improvement came when I got the HR-V.
