    just make sure to bring coolants, brake fluids, towing ropes, tools and reseved tire is properly inflated. OE manufacturers tortured the car first before releasing them: 2 days straight driving..

Lucena, Subic, Zambales, Baguio travel would be just fine.
    wow! umabot ka ng northern samar w/ your jazz? grabe! kinaya ng auto mo iyong freakish bicol roads!?? kami nga we went to rawis, northern samar ( an hour or two further down the road) last summer in a nissan van and man, was i plastered and i wasn't even the one driving!

    it's true though, the jazz's suspenion is bit tough when the car is not packed. but some owners/enthusiasts say a little tweaking (on its suspension) will soften things up a bit and remedy the so-called harsh ride

    My wife has a 2004 1.3 CVT Honda jazz. We brought it to baguio more than 30 times already.Texas Instruments was one of her clients. No problem whatsover. Very responsive and fast. Powerwise, I'd say more than enough. You just have to know how to properly use the CVT. We usually bring along our two kids and with the rears seats folded flat they just sleep all the way there. Through all kinds of weather yan. There was even a time we passed by Kennon road at 10 pm typhoon and all. My kids didn't even noticed the raging storm outside. But I just noticed medyo mahina liwanag ng headlights better install proper foglights kapag long drives saka yung NLEX at 1 am super nakakaantok mag drive. Kaya etong jazz 68k na mileage 3 yrs. old pa lang.

    I don't like the seats of the Jazz... it's too stiff and lacks lumbar support.

    Congrats drey...how does it drive? what variant did u get? how much na. may discount ba cla ngayn? and regarding rust proofing. i don't think its necessary kasi meron naman yan fm. the factory. u only need it cguro if u drive ur car on the beach or in snow areas (with road salt) i don't see that happening for 99% of pinoys. so save ur money and leave it as is....

    I drive a 2005 GD1 Honda Jazz 1.3S with the manual gearbox.

    It's actually surprising how this car generates its max torque from very low RPM---this should silence Honda haters that say their engines don't make any torque. As such it's a very good car for twisty roads, matched to a firm stock suspension.

    The twin-spark Jazz suffers when going faster than 120 km/h though. Not only does its 82HP become insufficient for very high speeds, it also gets a lot thirstier. For this kind of running the VTEC Jazz will suit you better.

    Best fuel economy I got was achieved with a drive from C5 to Baliwag, Bulacan, then back. The Jazz hummed along the NLEX at 100 km/h, overtook a lot of cars going to Baliwag town proper, then overtook more cars on NLEX southbound at 120 km/h.

    I made 28.024 km/L!

    I took my Jazz 1.3S MT to Subic this summer. I had a full load of people with me and their gear. Okey naman siya, yun nga lang medyo hirap sa mahabang diretsong akyatan, so I suggest avoiding Marcos Highway if you're going to Baguio.

    I avoided the SBMA area and took the twisty Olongapo mountain route. It was fantastic to drive! For such twisty mountain roads the engine and suspension are well-matched.

    For overtaking and cruising at 100-120 km/h, the twin-spark 1.3L engine is sufficient; you have to remember that its max torque is developed at 2800 RPM.

    It's in those full-speed 150+ km/h banzai runs that the VTEC Jazz has an edge. I've taken mine to 155 km/h, but it's a noticeable strain on the drivetrain...not to mention very heavy on the fuel
