Hi ,

Could you please help me in choosing best car out baleno petrol manual or cvt / dzire zxi AMT / Jazz V Manual. My favorite is Jazz but CVT price is 1.30L more than manual.

But people around me were trying to scare / warn me that Honda maintenance cost is high & resale value is low. I am in total confusion. finally choose Dezire ZXI AMT over Jazz (since price difference is same ), but i am interested in Jazz only thing where i am worrying is maintenance, as every one saying is Honda maintenance really horrible and high ?

could you plz suggest honda jazz vmt vs dezire zxi amt. I found space in jazz is more than baleno , i20elite (dezire and i20active are little better )

Hello,

If Maintenance is what your concern for Jazz Petrol - then here are some facts

> Service Schedule is 6 month or 10000 Kms whichever earlier

> Despite bi-annual service interval, Honda Jazz has replacement of
1. Coolant - Once only in 10 Years effectively
2. Fuel Filter - Good enough for 80000 Kms
3. Brake Fluid - Once in 3 Year
4. Air Filter - Good enough for 30000 Kms
5. Transmission Oil - Once in 3 Year (Manual) / Once in 2 Year (Automatic)

Most of the services would be Engine Oil Change, Cabin AC filter, Spark Plug, Alignment and Balancing
Even Engine Oil recommended is Honda Idemitsu Engine Oil which along with Filter change and taxes costs around rs 1500 only.
Do note that Oil Companies do recommend in Engine Oil change every 6 months if using Mineral Oil for Engine been in best shape

Its not required to deviate from service schedule
Refer - Service Myth

> Honda Cars India is offering in Extended Warranty for additional 2 years and anytime warranty for 5th, 6th, 7th Years - defining highest warranty coverage

Although yes - some items like - Suspension, Clutch Plate Assembly, Brake Pads are costed slight higher., Details on Honda Spare Parts
But expect overall good reliability

So - will suggest to not to be wary of Honda high Service cost
As long as you follow on Honda Owner Manual and MyCarHelpline - trust your ownership costs will remain in control

Hope should help !!

Hi ,

Thnx for your reply. i am getting Dezire ZXI AMT for 8.7L and Jazz V Manual for 8.3L (after negotiations ) / Jazz V AT for 9.6L

1) b/w Dezire AMT and Jazz V manual which is better (already you have give clarity on maintenance ) . If jazz hits some other car vice-versa then i want know about passengers safety which will be effected more jazz or deizire ?
2) Difference b/w jazz manutal and VAT is 1.3L, that huge difference in price is worth-able if i go with CVT , i drive jazz in weekends and go out on high-way trips once in a month or every 2 months.
3) Air bags and ABS response time in both dezire and jazz

Please suggest me jazz manual or cvt (with 1.3L diff) and dezire AMT . need bumper to bumper security, suspension comfort for senior citizens, need completely family car

Hi,

Maintenance cost will certainly be high on Jazz if someone intends to use it for any purpose other than what the Jazz is intended for. Suppose someone wishes to use Jazz on path meant for Jeep at inconsiderable speeds then maintenance will certainly rise. As the Admin has rightly pointed out, follow the maintenance schedule of Honda and drive the Jazz to its capability, there will not be any issue unless it is used like a tractor.
Quality comparison & perfection in craftsmanship between Maruti and Honda are space-years apart.
Two of my friends own a Baleno(early 2016 model) and Jazz(2011 model) each. The baleno guy drives his car in such a respectful manner that Maruti Company might honour him to be the safest driver in India but still has regular maintenance issues and visits the service centre every month. whereas the Jazz is driven like a NASCAR/WRC rally car and no maintenance cost issues arise except for regular servicing and normal wear and tear cost.
The choice is yours, choose between either India's highest selling car brand or the World 's.

@ Swaroop,

Pl find details on further queries as asked

> New Dzire Crash test rating yet to be announced
But - as the same build on same chassis as what Baleno is - so expect build quality to be similar

In terms of comparison of Honda Jazz and Baleno safety (can be taken same for Dzire too) - refer Safety Rating Comparison

> CVT Automatics are best if driving maximum in city ride for convenience in traffic / city rush
In highway drive or occasional city drive - no need as such to spend high on automatic if one is looking for value buy in budget

> No as such response time but expect it to be in micro-seconds as Global standard

Hello,

Brake Assist acts as an assistance to make car stop even more quickly when the brake pedal is depressed fully

For instance one driving on high speed and suddenly due to emergency situation - press brake fully then
> Although ABS will help car not to skid
> Brake Assist will provide extra vacuum to stop car at a relative shorter distance by some meters over cars without Brake Assist

Hope should help !!
