Toyota Yaris 2011 and Honda Jazz 2005: Engine longevity
A few factors determine engine longevity, so let’s start with the first of those, the basic materials and design of the engine in question. Both the Toyota and Honda have advanced small-capacity engines that are made from quality materials. So that’s in their favour.
The second factor is servicing. A lack of regular maintenance including fresh oil and filters will kill engines fast, so that’s crucial. And finally, how they are driven will also play a part. An engine that only does long distances in the country will always last longer than one that is subjected to frequent cold starts and stop-start traffic. An engine that is regularly revved to redline between the gears will also potentially die younger than one that is driven sensibly and with a bit of mechanical sympathy.
The bottom line? There’s no short answer. But I have seen small-capacity Honda and Toyota engines clock up 250,000km and more with correct maintenance. Things have certainly changed from the 1950s when the average car engine needed a rebuilt every 100,000km and what was called a de-coke and valve-grind every 30,000km. Ask your grandfather about it.

Honda Jazz shaking
It's a problem with the CVT transmission and one that Honda is aware of and has been rectifying. Take it back to your dealer and have them assess it. They might be able to fix it by changing the oil in the gearbox, but in some cases they have replaced gearboxes.
Honda Jazz pungy smell
Leaving it so long before reporting it was a mistake. Always report a problem to the dealer, so that it is on record should they take no action and the problem develops into something even worse. I don't really think you've got a strong claim in this case; I'd cop the whack and put it down to experience.
Another shuddering Honda Jazz
The first thing dealers usually do when they get a shuddering Jazz is to change the transmission fluid, which is a special fluid for the purpose, and that appears to fix most cars. In some cases it doesn't and in those cases it usually means the transmission needs replacing. Trading the car is drastic, but if that eases your mind then so be it.
