Honda Fit/Jazz

Hi guys, I am still confused which one is better to take, Honda Fit / Jazz.
Anyone driving can share your experience?

Is the latest Honda Jazz / Fit 2008 series with new facelift better or before series?

Thanks

Both almost same spec.
Jazz if got major problem still can bring to kah motors.
Fit is parallel importing doubt they will help. If got major recall.
Mine is jazz.

08/09 jazz have a nice rear. (my preference)
10 onwards, they change to a diff rear design.

more on the lights.
10,11,12 all look similar rear design, i guess no different.
but if u google "honda fit" they describe till seem alot of diff.

if u based on older generation.. if u drive City.. u wont bother to go for jazz anymore...

the engine characteristic is the key difference.. unless u choose idsi City...

BTW, the parts are so similar u dont even know its T / J.. if u have dmg parts..and go for any repairs in KM...they also give u T..

i have belt and other wear n tears parts change and they give me J...

to them..its just car parts... what its matter whether T worker take pride in their job..or strong QC...

have both GE Fit (2008) and a GD Jazz (2005), both have pros and cons.

Newer Fit has better handling, slightly better pickup, but slightly poorer FC, front looks better.

Older Jazz definitely has better FC (Even though this car is 3 years older!!), but steering wheel slightly heavier.

overall? I still prefer older Jazz for better FC

Fit or Jazz not much diff i think, it's just 2005 or 2008 model, 2005 using IDSI, 2008 using VTEC.

hi buddies, thanks for the great advice

Is there anything to check for 2nd hand Jazz, 09 model? Not sure what is important to check for Jazz.
