    Hi all, I've read the previous threads comparing these cars that I'm considering, but they 're dated already so I'm starting a new one.


    - 1 st car (buying it cash)
    - to be used for city driving to and from work
    - to be used for nearby out of town trips as well
    - will be lady driven (never owned a car but knows how to drive MT and AT)

    - planning to purchase before February 2010
    - considering those 2 cars mentioned above mainly because it's eye candy SO this is where you car enthusiasts will help me decide. My BF is no car tuner so he can't help me decide on this.

    Thanks in advance! Looking forward your responses!

    These are my questions and concerns -

    1. I'm buying brandnew, when (# of kms and or years) should I expect wear and tear signs for AT? (no judgement please just becoz I'm a lady driver )

    2. Which has better after market service?

    3. I'm considering resale value after 5 yrs (the most) as I don't wanna be stuck with problems for AT. Which, in your honest opinion has better resale value in 3-5 yrs?

    Get the Jazz 1.5 A/T instead.

    Why not the Swift 1.5 AT or Jazz 1.3 AT?

    -Swift is a very small car. Seats only FOUR normal sized adults.
    -Swift has practically no trunk space. Only enough space in the back for your purse.
    -Suzuki has one of the WORST service casa in the local market.
    -Suzuki aftersales/afterservice relations is even worst than the service because it is non-existent.

    -Jazz has a much bigger interior than Swift. Great for bringing friends out of town WITH bags in the back.
    -Jazz interior volume is also much bigger, fold down the rear seats and you can transport a whole sofa chair like a Lazy-Boy or your bf's dead body if he ever cheats on you. hehehe.
    -Jazz 1.3l feels very slow, especially accelerating from 60kph to 100kph and beyond.
    -with a price difference only P60K for the 1.3 & 1.5 versions, you get a better car with a more powerful engine, better wheels, etc.
    -1.5L engine will consume roughly the same in fuel as long as you keep a light foot on the pedal.
    -Jazz 1.5L gets more goodies like: side mirror signal lights, power folding side mirrors, paddle shifter, car alarm, etc. (Jazz1.3 doesn't get those).

    -resale of Honda is very good. Lots of demand of 2nd hand honda cars including the Jazz.
    -current Jazz A/T tranny seems to be problem free since it's a traditional a/t system.

    Haha that BFs dead body part is hilarious!

    Thanks Ghosthunter for the tip. I've read some of your posts in Top Gear forum as well. Thank you for pointing out the more logical reasons of getting the 1.5L Jazz. I was just looking, considering and comparing 1.3 and 1.5 based on the the interior specs! 1.5 offers height adjuster (which will come in handy given my 5'2" balingkinitan frame) PLUS the driver vanity mirror! I'm so totally clueless!

    Since you'll test drive vehicles today. Why not include the Toyota Yaris 1.5L as well ?
