The beastJazz GD (2001-2007)
This car takes an absolute beating. From a person who's had numerous big engine sedans changing to a fuel efficient car I have no regrets. This thing is outright fun to drive. The 5 speed manual gear ratios are perfect and means this thing is super quick off the mark but acceleration is slow above 60km/h but only due to the engine size. It's not slow if you thrash it but this car begs you to thrash it. The engine winds up quick, sounds great and the clutch is so forgiving when thrashed its almost like it was designed that way. Steering is great... Read more too honda did a perfect job of 1x full steering wheel rotation for a 90 degree corner meaning your hand always finishes on the top of the steering wheel when turning a corner and gearing at the same time. This is a drivers car through and through but it has been victim to the hereditary ailments of this model being bad ignition coils and rear wheel bearings but other than that I love it. Best brakes of any car I've ever had. Huge interior space, it's more spacious inside than most sedans.
Best in ClassGF VTi Manual (2014-2023)
I bought this 2019 GF Manual Honda Jazz January 2021 from Formula Honda I have waited till now 20 months in to review this car in case it turned out to be rubbish. I have been delighted with this car, I can answer a few questions that I have seen people puzzling over. The uncomfortable seats are too flat for a while but as time goes by, they do conform to your body shape and feel very good. The notchy manual gear shift was annoying but after getting the gearbox flushed with fresh oil to remove the assembly oil from when it was produced, its act... Read moreually an amazing gearbox, very easy to shift. It is a pleasure to drive, I love manual cars and I do love to drive this one. The clutch is the best, it is light and no shudders at all. I get easily 6 litres per 100k, even better if you cheat and knock it into neutral down hills. The room is side is bigger than many SUV's, I have carried 2 wheel chairs in the rear with seats folded. It is quiet and the road manners are delightful, not sports car but predictable. The best thing about this car is the absolute effortless way it can fly up hills as if they don't exist. I travel the Golden Way in South Australia daily and I'm sure if it was legal it would do 160 k's up the hill. My only regret is that these cars will no longer be available, it will be a sad day when we all have to drive boring CVT or electric cars, this vehicle can satisfy an enthusiastic car lover. I have no regrets in my purchase.
I'm not a big fan of this carGF VTi Manual (2014-2023)
Feel free to dislike my comment but if u do i would do too!!
I have to tell u the honest reason why i hate this car because it's light and floaty, i barely can feel the clutch pedal, i'm a big guy, i prefer a car with a stiffer and a harsher ride to it. The 1.2 2017 Jazz baseline model performance wasn't great, it was losing power on the uphill, also felt sluggish in the highway.The handling was ok though but i had driven this car for 2yrs. Some like it some don't, however it is spacious and good on fuel. My opinion, my rights so deal with it!Show details
Simply a fabulous carJazz GE (2008-2013)
We bought this car brand new back in 2012 and have been using it as our main family vehicle ever since. We have clocked up 325,000 km so far and have never had a single problem with it. All that it has required is the usual maintenance as per the recommended service schedule. We started using premium petrol in it somewhere around the 250,000km mark but before that used plain unleaded petrol. The interior is bigger than you would expect from a small car, so we are able to fit five adults in it quite easily when required. The car still runs ve... Read morery well so we are wondering if it may yet have a lot of life left in it. After such a good experience with this car, when it came time to buy a second car recently we chose another Honda (a Civic) and we have been delighted with that too. When our Jazz finally runs out of steam, we'll be replacing it with another Honda Jazz.
Love, Love, LoveGF VTi Manual (2014-2023)
Best car I have ever owned. Drove Sydney - Perth - Darwin - Brisbane - Sydney without missing a beat. Just had 90,000km service without a problem. Third Honda I have owned (including a 2000 Integra) and definitely the best.Show details

small car but bigger spaceGF VTi Automatic (2014-2023)
I like the design of the car internal space. It's a small car but bigger internal space comparing other brand car at the same level. I used to ship a brand new top load washing machine home so you can imagine what you can do with this car. The car has everything, like cruise control, which won't be available for other cars at base model. The downside is the maintenance cost is a bit high, 6 months service interval at minimum $249 is what you are going to pay. But overall, quite reliable car.Show details
Not a perfect car but for normal driveGF VTi-S
Bought brand new 2017. Used everyday for work and everyday life. Drive thru states and rough road is not an ideal car, you can feel the bump even the road surface slightly rough. Service every year, after SECOND YEAR, the squeaking sound of the break just annoying. Brought the car to Honda service but the dealer said cant do anything about it. Brought to another honda dealer and same answer, but a bit of extra “if you want to fix it, it will cost money”. The bluetooth system started to turn on/off randomly sometimes
I had car accident and the problem was my car got written off while the Ute behind just a tiny dent.
Paid extra for the seat cover protect and the external coat protect….useless
Put a Smile on Your FaceGF VTi-S
After much comparing I went for the Honda Jazz. As a second car its perfect. Not a car for long trips if you have something more comfortable in the garage but a fun, super practical little work horse. Yes the seats are magic as Honda claim. Its also surprisingly quick if you use the revs. The CVT transmission works perfectly and certainly helps the lively performance. Space inside is exceptional, the Tardis of small compacts. One niggle and its a big one, its the only Honda that expects servicing every six months! Not sure I would have... Read morebought it had I known in advance. No one at the dealer can tell me why so its obviously a money making ploy. As Honda have a super reputation for build quality it can only be a cash grab. This together with sacking most of their dealers just after I bought it did not enhance their reputation in my eyes. I believe mine was the last year the Jazz was sold so pick up one with low mileage in good condition and enjoy a fab little car that really does put a smile on your face.
Excellent little mover!GF VTi Automatic (2014-2023)
This car was used to go shopping, do errands, meet friends and family and much more! Perfect little size to squeeze into any parking spot and also a very good looking car with handy features!Show details

Nippy and fuel efficient with great audioGF VTi-S
Bought my car new in Sept 2019 and have not been disappointed. It was a tough choice after owning Mazdas for more than 8 years but it is roomier inside than the Mazda 2 and the pull-up back seat makes it very useful. It holds Mum's walker and great for holding the pet cage for taking my cat to the vet. Also find the blue tooth audio has great sound (I love listening to audio books and music whil travelling). Highly recommended.Show details
Audio/Blue tooth/GPS console - rubbishJazz
I am very disappointed with aspects of my Jazz. the console containing the radio/phone/GPS is rubbish. So many things have happened with it, including total black out, including no reverse camera. The phone system is not good, the number listing and call history disappeared for days then suddenly reappeared. I had to pair my phone again and it took seven attempts. Sometime the Bluetooth connects and sometimes it does not EG: yesterday a call came in while I was driving and it did not connect, I pulled over to call the person back and it co... Read morennected. Totally unreliable. The radio has changed stations without me requesting it. The GPS is hopeless and can't be trusted, Honda Artarmon, removed the GPS and uploaded again but I'm afraid it is still terrible, sometimes telling me to turn right as I travel on the M5, there was no right hand turn!!!!!! It gets totally confused. There is also a poor design feature with the drivers seat, I like the seat raised, but the seat in my car keeps going down, so I am constantly pumping it up, the dealer told me is is because I touch it getting in and out of the car, well I can't help that it is in the wrong position, its positioned where you sit to get into the car. I'm very disappointed, I had a Mazda prior to this and bought the Jazz because of the great storage, thought it was a quality car but I'm afraid it nowhere the quality of my Mazda.
Honda no longer means quality.GF VTi-S
2016 Honda Jazz 3 year warranty
Starter motor fails at 3 years 3 months and only a Honda starter motor can fit in the space.
2 years later the 2nd starter motor starts to have problems (Honda brand)
The push button door lock/open failed before the battery in the keys needed replacing! I have a 20 year old Toyota thats push button on the key still works.
I will never be touching a Honda again. They are just cheap garbage these days.
Poor Quality GPS IN HONDA JAZZ!!GF VTi-S
Honda Jazz is a good car except for its GPS. The GPS has major flaws in its logic and algorithms. It gets the destination wrong, the route wrong. Instead of travelling on a main road, the route directs you to make a detour to local road then go back on the main road.
The GPS in Honda Jazz is a disgrace and does not worth a cent!
If you are thinking of buying Honda Jazz and relying on its GPS, PLEASE DON’T BUY.
Honda Jazz - A perfect Small Car with Big Space.GF VTi Automatic (2014-2023)
After all my research, I was still confused. But the moment I stepped into the Honda Jazz, I had a feeling it had to be this car. It's a very unassuming car from the outside, Small. The inside is very spacious, in fact it's the clever way in which the Jazz has been designed. It has one of the most spacious boot in its category. The driver and front passenger space is superb. Even the rear passenger has a lot of gap between the knee and back rest of the front seats. Drives like a Honda . Perfect. It's this very nice feeling whenever I drive this... Read more car. Milage is okay I got 726kms from 40 Litres tank that amounts to 18kms per litre which is good. Used only on paved roads. Services are done timely. Mainly I like the front shape look of the car and bold tail lights that make it very visible on the roads at night.
