The vehicle has acquired some scratches here and there, got some dents. Nothing major.
BHPian aaren recently shared this with other enthusiasts.
In 2011, I bought Honda Jazz X edition and after a lot of thought process and learnings from this very forum. And soon after I published it, gave my initial ownership report followed after a few years.
Now recently the car completed 12 years. What a vehicle it has proved to be!! It has been my family’s faithful companion to lots of travels. However, some of the long term travel did not happen, as I thought it would.
What has worked well:
- The engine is a top notch one – as smooth and as silent as it was when I bought.
- The A/C as good as it was.
So far didn’t have to touch or change anything in the car other than:
- A / C filter
- Engine Oil change – as recommended. And except once, Honda recommended oil.
- Wiper rubbers
- The driver side outer rear view mirror
- Someone vandalized the rear wiper
The vehicle has run about 78000 kms. (covid and thereafter not much of running, as working from home). The sound system is working as good. The vehicle has acquired some scratches here and there, got some dents. Nothing major. Importantly, in my view, the vehicle has not “aged”. I think this edition of Honda Jazz along with the first edition of Fiat Punto are two vehicles that have remained as attractive as ever.
Recently, some foul smell was coming when we started the fan / A/C of the car and gave it for internal cleaning, A/C duct cleaning and detailing at Honda Showroom.
I must say that this Honda Showroom at Indore has been a very helpful one right from day one and have taken care of the vehicle very well. According to their Senior Technical person, this car is good to go for another 5 years with, of course by extending the registration.
Yes, am thinking in terms of moving to a newer vehicle. This could possibly boil down between Honda Elevate Vs. Kia Seltos Vs. Toyota Hyryder. But the change could come sometime in 2024 as there are other priorities. Keeping my fingers crossed!
