Honda Jazz 2008 Q&As
Check out real-world situations relating to the Honda Jazz 2008 here, particularly what our experts have to say about them.
Honda Jazz 2008: What's the difference between models?
There’s a bit of detail missing from your question, Peter, but I’ll take a stab in the dark and guess that you’re talking about the Honda Jazz city car. The MY06 Jazz was, in fact, known as the GD model, while the GE you’re comparing it with was released in 2008.
The GE was an all-new model Jazz, so fundamentally they’re entirely different cars. Yes, they share a similar mechanical specification and share a place in terms of their market segments, but beyond that, the GE is a newer design with better dynamics and superior safety levels.
If you can afford the later GE model, then it would definitely be a better car.
Should I buy a used Honda Jazz?
Well, if you’re looking for a fuel-efficient car, then a Honda Jazz is a very good choice. With an official combined fuel-consumption figure as low as 5.7 litres per 100km, and the ability to run on the cheaper 91-RON unleaded, the Jazz’s weekly fuel costs will be among the lowest around.
But $15,000 is a crazy figure. The entry-level Jazz was only about $16,000 when brand-new, so even though the kilometres showing on this one are extremely low, the price being asked is astronomical. The most expensive 2008 Jazzes out there are asking around $8000 (and that’s too much) with plenty out there for $4000 or less.
The difference would be if you meant to type 2018 instead of 2008 (which is a better match with the odometer reading you’re quoting) at which point $15,000 starts to look like roughly the right price to be paying. Either way, the Jazz is nicely built, drives well and will be very economical.
Honda Jazz gearbox troubles
Hopefully you have kept a record of the times the oil has been changed and the result. I would take that to the dealer in the first instance and present a claim to have the gearbox replaced, as has happened with some other Jazz owners. If that doesn't get the result you want, move up the chain, and if necessary go to the consumer affairs people as the last resort.
