Ive done the run there in my other rides and i know the Jazz will give me just as much fun and excitement.

    you should also try out PILILIA, back end route when going to QUEZON... technical twisties and smooth asphalt roads! be it by car or by bike, this route always pulls a smile in my face.

    swift ako. parang mas cheaper ang maintenance in the long run ang swift.

    Plus mas ma aksyon pa din ang typical gearbox kaysa CVT.

    at mas maganda Daw ride ng swift.

    At mas macho dating ng swift.

    Mahilg pa naman ako sa macho! ahahahay!!!

    sorry mods, medyo OT

    the route will be antipolo - teresa - pililia - famy, its best if you would check out the map.. this route is confusing for first timers.
    i woul'dnt advice testing your skills on a sunday though.. lot's of big bikers and scooterista's hone their banking skills during this day there (including me lols)

    Swift for me. I'm not very fond of Hondas. But for the money, I'd just take an APV home. hehehe.

    i'll probably go for the swift if only for the novelty factor (for a personal car, obviously for a family, the jazz will be the better proposition). hehehe. based on a very brief drive of the jazz, i'm not too keen on it.

    For me its the Jazz 1.5 VTEC! What a lovely car. I bought one and I'm literally very very happy. Its an absolute hoot to drive and in fact I've stopped driving my X3 3.0 because in terms of bringing that smile to your face in CITY driving.... the Jazz just delivers so much spunk. Its got an econo driving mode if youre stuck in traffic (10km a liter in city bumper to bumper traffic EDSA, C5, Katipunan, Mandaluyong , Makati ), a sport mode if you want to be a little bit aggressive and that wonderful, sweet singing 7-mode Manual CVT mode for being absolutely naughty!

    I know the Swift has a great following in this board and it is a great looking car. But the Honda just delivers more driving fun IMHO. They both have the same HP and torque. But the Jazz has much more space in almost the same compact size, the honda service band and reliability, its easier to change the sound system (yay) and its got the killer CVT multi-mode transmission. From I guy whos used to driving an E46 325 and an X3 3.0.... I'd choose the Jazz anyday over my other rides for pure fun city driving. Heck I've taken it to 170kmh (south super going to the merville exit) in short stretches of road and its VTEC heart still got some left to give.

    This JAZZ was by far the best car i ever bought (even over those german brands that I mentioned). Its gonna be my baby for a long long long time.
    Please don't be one of those paper reviewers or driving expert when u haven't even test driven both cars. i know Jazz is a nice car too, but do yourself a favor test drive them both, then only then u can give a non-bias opinion.

    IMO - the jazz/city has an overboosted power steering & neutral suspension feedback. not really that confidence inspiring since you wouldn't know what the car is doing. good for driving in the metro but not really for spirited driving.
