Daily Driver Owned by legend-ary

  • Swapped my 145,000+ miles Yaris with this Jazz on one of my trips to Yorkshire. The car did show signs of neglect but I always wanted a Honda of some sort and thought of Jazz as a clever super-mini and it didn't disappoint. I found the ride of the Jazz much better than Yaris as it is firm yet comfortable. Electric power steering was a bit unnerving in the beginning but I like it now.. So far I have done about 1500 trouble free miles but the car does need a bit of attention.
