Anyone want a jazz? 2004 / 136k / MOT sept Offers?

Recommended Posts

Swaps/offers welcome - see last post. Bit of gearbox noise in 1st I think.

 

http://autoshite.com/topic/31587-anyone-want-a-jazz-2004-136k-mot-sept-offers/?p=1483272

 

Afternoon all. I've accidentally bought another mk7 civic, and 4 shit old hondas won't fit on my 3 car frontage, so I need to shift one and this is the one other people are most likely to want. 

 

It's a very good blue colour, does a rattle occasionally in first/second but it's not the gearbox bearing type noise **edit: it might be, although it's not the whiny one I've had experience of on civics, although from everything I've read the gearbox bearing thing doesn't actually matter, it just makes it sound a bit like a mini. Other than that it's basically spot on. Everything works ok and it's an eager little thing to chuck round town, it's also nicer on the motorway than either of my 1.6 Civics on account of its longer legs. 

 

It's on ebay, obv, but...

I hate these, but my Sister-in-law has had a53 plate one for about 6 years and has never serviced it. It only gets the oil checked when I notice it rattling when she visits- the thing is unkillable, she's had two lots of write off money when people have crashed into it, just keeps on going dents and all.

Surprisingly spacious too, under the back seat took a 4 man tent and other camping shit a couple of years ago when she came to France with us, it even kept up on the Autoroutes.

Still don't like it.

Oh, I sanded/polished the headlamps the other day (and the accord ones, and the civic's) and they're very clear now. Forgot about that!

 

Christ, I've not read the MOT history since I bought it, I forgot it's fuggin war and peace.

 

Tester likes his unnecessary advisories.

Like the Ford Ka the front top mounts are conical, so they are supposed to slop around when unloaded, shouldn't even be an advisory.
The brake pipe last 4 inches of the O/S/R - TADTS.
Bit of clouding of the lenses TADTS too.

We had a rental one of these around three years back when the missus' old Golf was written off by a Transit carrying eggs for a local ice-cream company. The broken egg juice was oozing out of the lower edge of the back doors at the accident scene.

Anyway, the Jazz in question was a 'Sport' model. Never in my life have I found a stronger case of going to trade descriptions to argue misrepresentation.

 

Sorry if this doesn't help. Good luck with the sale.

I'm ashamed to admit that this is one of the cars I'll never let out of a side turning due to the fact that I'll get stuck behind it doing 23mph. A shame really as they aren't a bad steer but they're wasted on the old.

I do the same, these and Kia Picanto's

I used to have a Picanto - you’d probably find it overtaking you shortly after not letting me out ;-)

 

:mrgreen:

 

Its quite funny really, I meet one every morning, if I don't leave the house at exactly 6.50 I end up stuck behind this bloody Picanto that does 20mph all the way through town and 35-40mph the 3 miles up the A road where I can finally get past it, it's a guy from the next street and he works near me, if I end up catching him before the last 7 miles of my journey I get stuck behind him again for those last 7 miles, its infuriating!

Guess what! That other Civic turned out to need a gearbox so I'm back on another train heading home and I don't really need to sell this anymore. Arsebags tho, cos I was really excited about the new one. Bloody hell.

 

Also last minute train tickets are expensive. Ffs. I did at least get my money back.

Aye. Well, a gang with a portacabin. I got about 300 yards, turned round, explained the problem, took one of them out, they convinced me it was something not too sinister, I shrugged and set off again, got about 5 miles, decided I was definitely right, called them from a lay by, eventually explained to them what was wrong with a bit of background (IE, I already have one of these at home and I know what noises it makes), drove back, had an amicable enough chat, apologetically explaining that it was no use to me and much as I don't want to spend another 3 hours and £££ titting about with trains and I'm not trying to be awkward, but... and they counted out my pennies, took the V5 and key and we wished each other well. Which could definitely have gone worse.

 

I don't think I've ever taken a car back anywhere ever under any circumstances before, I'd always just soldier on and suck it up, it was only £450ffs, but I reckon I'm out £70 for trains (the pre-booked one there was £9) and insurance fee, and much as I wish I'd stayed in bed and saved myself £70, I've saved myself whatever it would cost to get new* gearbox bearings or a gearbox (with labour, it's way beyond me) and I'm unusually content about it. Although I still wish I had a nice 3 door EP civic with a sunroof. AND it means I've got to do Durham and back twice this weekend in the Jazz cos the Accord sticky caliper has re-stuck itself within 5 mins of me filling it up with petrol. Ah well.

 

*I filled the car up with petrol, not the caliper. 

 

**The car's petrol tank

Anyone want this? Open to offers as that noise is probably the gearbox bearing thing. Couple of Vids on YouTube of it, not sure you'd notice it if you weren't listening, and supposedly they go on forever anyway, it's just a noise, but still. 

 

 

 

I was hoping for north of £500, as it owes me more than I'd like, but...

 

Swaps/px welcome (anything with a sunroo/convertible considered) although I have barely any money so money your way for an interesting p/X will have to be small. FWIW it's been doing that noise for months and I did 700 miles in her last weekend up to durham and back twice.

      My Compact is up for sale again, MOT until November.
      Manual, 2l turbo diesel, 165k miles.
      £750

      I've replaced a load of stuff over the years, been meticulous with servicing. Brand new turbo, crank pulley, injectors, inlet seals, handbrake mech, vortex filter etc). It had a new BMW battery from dealer a couple of years ago. New black kidney grilles. New spare wheel, toolkit, books, wallet, first aid kit box etc
      Swirl flaps in the inlet have been blanked. Has black M-sport alcantara interior, with bucket seats (fully adjustable) and leather bits. It's really clean inside and out. Cool fold out rear windows like old Japanese cars but they’re auto electric powered
      17" E90 alloy wheels with four 5 month old Landsail tyres
      Two keys, service/manuals, dealer keyring, etc.

      The only things wrong with it:
      the glow plug ECU is reporting a fault.
      The front bumper is stone chipped.
       It has always started first turn of the key in whatever weather in the four years I've had this, so I'm sure the glow plugs are working, but it's just giving an error. It has had this fault in INPA since I've had it.

      It shifts quite well with 150bhp, I've managed 70 - 80mpg on a gentle run over 200 miles, but always get an average of 60mpg. There's no rust on the car, it's pretty mechanically sound I've done close to 70k miles in it I think. Only the crank pulley has failed on me in that time.

      First some background:
      I was brought up with no car interest, a car was transport and nothing more which resulted in a selection of poor cheap cars being the cars of my youth.
       
      Fast forward many years (just over 9 years ago) and I have a wonderful* Vauxhall Vectra estate to carry us about. Unfortunately it is crap and throws fault codes at us with nothing being there when it is checked (even at Vauxhall)
       
      As Mrs T is the main pilot of this chariot with the two little miss T's on board, it has to go.
      The hunt is on for the new steed to safely and comfortably carry the family around. I have a company car at the time so big journeys are not an issue.
       
      ebay is my weapon of choice to find the new family car. It has to be good value cheap for no other reason than I am tight.
       
      Weeks of research with lots of cars that are too expensive and too far away for easy collection end up in my watch list.
      Finally a possible is spotted in Fife. I go and have a look and find a poor looking but solid car. One previous owner and lots of history.
       
      The auction was to end on the Saturday at midday, we were going to be out! I decided on how much I was willing to gamble on it and on the Saturday morning I put in my max bid but straight away it went to my max bid, I was winning but it had three hours to go with no room for me to go up! We went out anyway.
       
      I spent the next three hours kicking myself for not bidding more while we were out as it was the first car I had seen that fitted my criteria. Fate was in charge.
       
      On returning home I go straight on ebay to find 'Congratulations.............'
      For the grand total of £500 I had just won this fine vehicle!
       

       
      It has 5 months MOT and after fitting seat belts in the rear for the girls car seats it is pushed into daily service.
      My gamble and subsequent use results in a perfectly reliable car that actually does what it is supposed to do.
       
      Even more importantly Mrs T loves it so a win all round.
       
      All my cars have names (most are earned over a bit of time) and this one is called 'Gwendolen' ( G reg car and from Wales originally. I hate the name but I am not going to argue)
       
      That sums up part one, more will be along later (probably much later)

      Copied over from Shite In Miniature...
      Note for future reference...  I've decided most of my Matchbox (-sized) cars can go.  It's a vast collection,   Most have been repainted at least once - by me, obviously.  My eyes and hand aren't good enough to do them again.  I've got way too many to list so ask if there's something you want and if I've got it, we can do a deal.  Most will be 50p each plus postage, so it'll make sense to build up a parcel.
       
      I thought it best to do this, then I'm not clogging up the main thread.  This could well go on for months.
