So here's what I'm driving at the moment.......the utterly unexciting Honda Jazz!
This one I got in August - it's a 1.4 ES with 37k on the clock in very good condition, one previous owner with full Honda service history.
Since buying it I have invested in a full size spare wheel fitted with a new tyre as there was no spare when I bought it.
I've also had a Nextbase dashcam fitted, and invested in a set of LED headlight bulbs (https://www.classiccarleds.co.uk/
) - these are a good build quality and well worth the money.
I'm getting 49.4 mpg on mostly rural B roads, and although it won't pull the skin off a rice pudding, it's easy to see why so many have been sold - very easy to drive, excellent build quality and tardis like interior space.
It replaced an ageing Suzuki Swift diesel that was starting to cost money, so it was time to move it on. I chose the Jazz ( my son has one too) as I know someone who has an 05 plate one with 180k on the clock and it has proven to be completely reliable.
Our other car is a Suzuki SX4 1.6 2014 and the wife drives that - she loves it.
