    What does this car say about you?

    What do your friends / family / neighbours think of the car?

    For a "small" car they are surprised by how big it seems especially on the inside.

    Would you buy this car again and why?

    No, but only because with a 2 small kids and a MIL I have outgrown the car. By the time I need to downsize I would prefer more power and refinement than offered in the Jazz. However for a small family on a budget I would definitely recommend the Jazz.

    Honda CR-V (purchased).
