05 Honda Jazz it's SOLD

Recommended Posts

Yo shitters,

There may be interest in this, or not.

My wife is about to buy a new car so her current one is surplus to requirements.

2005 Honda Jazz SE Sport
MOT April
103000 miles.

Has been unfailingly reliable but has a couple of minor issues, exhaust sounds like its blowing and there is a clunk of some sort reported from the rear end which has never been there when I drive it. And it's slow, outrageously so, possible EGR issue? Never investigated. Scrape on nsr door and has had paint in the past on rear bumper / quarters.

Obviously nobody wants it as a px, anyone keen at £300 or £5 roffle? Ideal for station car, wife or teenage child or anyone else who needs a car but doesn't really like driving.

Sorry for limited info, was posting from the pub. Its a mk1 so 1.3 petrol, there were no mk1 diesels in the UK AFAIK.


Not sure if its actually broken or if they're just all like that, it is slow to accelerate but will achieve 70, but may not stay there uphill.

Townmate is probably a no, the space would be massive with the seats folded down but not long or high enough I would say.


Here are some pictures from today showing scrapes and also the paint, not sure how well it comes out but both rear quarters/doors have some milky patches like overspray or a badly blended repair.


The plate on it will be removed before sale, the original plate I think was DK05ZNL.


Tax is cheap but not that cheap, think its about £140pa due to the relatively high carbon dioxides.


Location is Brighouse, West Yorkshire, J25 M62, HD6 postcode.


We have failed to buy a new car today as one was sold and one misdescribed, but we still intend to buy one before the MOT runs out on this and not bother putting it in for a test. It probably wouldn't need much/anything, but I reckon with the scrape etc we would struggle to get more than about £500 from the public even with 12 months test so the £50+ to retest it is not adding value for us given available time/care levels.

Should probably also add that these things are well underrated little cars, they really should be the universal answer to "what car should I get for my mate who doesn't car"



Massive inside, small outside

Decent on fuel

Easy to drive and park


The main issue with them is they are not the best driving experience. The steering and pedals feel like you are on a PlayStation 1, before they invented force feedback. So it's light and inoffensive to use but something of a letdown for Ms_Q after an Alfa 147.


I can really see why they are the default choice for someone who doesn't care about cars and just needs something small, cheap and practical. We are only selling because despite ticking every box for her requirements, she just doesn't like driving it, and keep losing it in car parks.

Depends what people want from their driving experience. The motoring press want something that you can go at lightspeed on each corner with every lump and bump felt through the steering wheel.


However the average owner of a Jazz wants a car so easy to park you don't really even have to try. Hitting a pot hole doesn't upset the Labrador sleeping in the boot. Cornering is done slow enough to not cause enough G's, keeping the tissue box on the dashboard stationary - thus no worries about suspension having to work hard. For those people, the Jazz offers the best driving experience.

Any pics of how miserable the inside is ? and engine bay ?

Yeah will get some when it's light. Being the sport it has "sports" seats, think they are black or grey. Despite being a child wagon it's been mucked out semi-regularly so is OK on that front.

      1.8 n/a
      90000 miles
      MOT 19.6.2019, but will have new ticket before moving on
      'Patinated' yet very solid; character dent in front wing; never welded, boot floor perfect
      Sunroof sealed, replacement provided
      Great fun on the twisties but good on big roads too; would drive this anywhere
      Tarty but comfy pleather CTi front seats (originals here too)

      Short version of a long thread
      Bought Nov 17 with a blown engine
      Put new engine in that was worse than the old one
      Put another 70,000 mile engine in out of a 330D that I saw running this time
      It's got loads of history inc recon gearbox and suspension done
      Drives ok , no warning lights on , 2 keys, one needs a battery , 12 months mot, everything works inc AC
      Needs the blower direction box sorting , it's on your feet, could be 5 minutes , could be 30 mi utes then theres a whoosh as something frees off and it's all working normally
      I had a Google and it's something to do with vents, the box goes misshapen, I read a screw in the right place pulls it back into shape
      Inner rear arches behind the back doors need welding , heated screen only demists the passenger side
      It'll come with the original 18" wheels and wheel nuts as well as the 19" that are on it, but the 18" tyres are close to the limit
      Qualifies for modern classic insurance , adrian flux quoted me under £200 TPFT , I went with A plan at £300 fully comp
      I haven't advertised it anywhere else yet
      Original post below
      I've been looking at Range Rovers for a
      few weeks , in the past as I have a very competent/cheap mechanic I've bought a few projects that have worked out Ok but not a RR
      I've found one with an engine problem, not too far away guy wants shot of it so he'll take £1000 for it , it's a 2003 HSE with 150k on the clock, MOT history looks very good, it's tested until next april and he said it's had gearbox work in the last 6 months
      It's a really bad idea isn't it ,put me off with tales of woe, I'm really tempted to go and see it and risk divorce

      I know this is not the usual car to see on here but Tigerfox Jr has a baby on the way and he is discovering how expensive they are.
      It is a 2003 231 version with the 6 speed gearbox and has only done 34k. I looked at loads before finding this one and it is very nice condition
      Starts instantly, recent new battery and uses fuel at a alarming rate ! 
      Mot until July and would expect it to pass as it has only done 500 miles since the last one
      I have more pictures and it is advertised elsewhere for £1795 and a forum discount applies so £1675,  NOW £1500
      Leather interior, air con, working electric and heated seats, bose radio/cd
      PM me if you want more photos or contact details.
      Car is in South Leicestershire

      Brief background to this:

      I swapped my Jaguar for this car 2 and a half weeks ago as I was desperate to scratch my v8 itch, a client who works in my office bought it last September as a winter hack from his father in law. He was always complimentary towards the jag, I've always fancied a V8, so when he told me he was selling it I asked if he fancied a swapz and he was up for it!

      Unfortunately it's came at the wrong time for me, as my hours at work have halved recently and I really need something with economies as I'm applying for jobs with a commute longer than my current 8 miles a day. A petrol V8 unfortunately won't be suitable.

      So to the car, it's absolutely brilliant tbh. Absolutely huge inside, comfortable ride, sits at just under 2k revs at 70 and goes like a fucking rocket with the foot down. 300bhp from the V8 engine. It's the ultimate barge. Gearboxes are a known issue with these cars, this one is smooth AF. selects every gear perfectly and goes through them smoothly when progressing. It has 103,000 miles on the clock, the car has full service history until 92,000 (mostly dealer) which was in 2009, it's barely moved in the past ten years,a couple of hundred miles between MOT'S each year. It was put back into service last summer, there's receipts in the glovey for an oil and filter change and an engine terraclean. Aluminium body on these cars as well so no rust, it scrubs up very well. 2 remote fobs and a spare 3rd key. Has a parrot Bluetooth thingy which is nearly new, it's been properly fitted, I'll leave it in there. Private plate with comedy RFL lettering included.

      That's the good bits, so what about the bad?

      There is a judder when braking above 35/40 mph. Brakes work well but can feel a pulse under the pedal. Will need looked at.

      Rear brake light warning light on,there is a light out on the drivers side, will get this replaced

      This car has previously had a coolant leak from the reservoir bottle and also one of the hoses, the previous owner repaired it prior to me buying it which cost £££ I believe, as access isnt great in the engine bay. It hasn't leaked since. It used to leave a few drips overnight on the ground, but has been dry the last couple of weeks.

      Tires have decent tread but have two different brands on the front and rear,which is a bugbear of mine.

      Aircon needs a regas m9.

      And that's it really. Car is MOT'd until July, and is located in Glasgow. £1750. I know it's not the usual AutoShite giveaway price but it's a beast of a machine. And I need to recoup my jaaaaaag money. A quick glance on autotrader has rough 3.7's and non quattro 2.8's for over 2k. Any questions please fire away. Cheers

      So for various reasons, mainly money and hopefully, impending engagement/wedding (sshhhh) this is deffo for sale, with a discount for shiters.
      Currently, I am having the alternator replaced, as it basically died yesterday. I've sourced a good quality second hand one from a breaker with some warranty, and it's been checked and proven to work perfectly. It arrives in a couple of days, and I am paying to have it fitted. So the car is currently awaiting this in the garage.
      I've already got an alternative vehicle sourced and don't need any PX's, just a straightforward sale. This was purchased from Colc of this very parish, and has been fantastic, alternator issue aside!
      -130k miles, FSH - stamped book, countless receipts and paperwork, totalling thousands of pounds..mechanically absolutely brilliant. Recent stuff like turbo and other bits, engine is sweeter than your proverbial nut
      -Full leather with heated seats, Sat Nav, Cruise Control, dual zone climate control..all working perfectly!
      -recent full service by me approx 2k miles ago involving oil/oil filter, pollen, air..fuel filter included but I ran out of time and haven't actually had time to sit and do it since
      -rust free! underneath it is fabulous. Seems to have had a very recent new exhaust system too.
      -MOT till 19th November 2019!
      No knocks/bangs/ghosts/borrowers/cockroaches. It really does drive brilliantly. Comes with 3 keys, 4 matching Michelin Cross Climate tyres. Only negatives are it has a ding to the rear tailgate, and theres a small patch of paint that flaked off on the rear bumper thanks to aggressive car wash peoples.
      I'm located in Quinton, Birmingham.
