Hi guys,
Some of you might be aware I am buying a second hand Jazz... this is AA evaluation report.

I am not a merchanical person so need some expert advise if its worth to get this car.

Particularly these few issues:
- Rattling noise when change "D" to "R" : Is this serious? Gearbox related? Need repair or replace?
- Bottom of gearbox seepage: Can this be fixed? Will it affect my gearbox?
- Possible missing front reinforcement bar: AA told me yesterday they check a newer Jazz model have this but mine don't have. Can any 2005 Jazz owner advise me? Heard from AA it can be quite serious as I dun have any front protection without this bar.

Please also point out if anything you feel is critical (minus cosmetic)...

Thank you so much! sad.gif

Yeah...

Both front and back showing signs of accident repair, sounds like the car buang pretty bad.

And lack of bar would seem to reinforce this (damaged and they never replace)

Gear box is anothers problem. The leakage showed that GB can be faulty soon.
GB repair can be very expensive.

There are many 2nd hand Jazz in the market, look for another one.

Exhaust changed to aftermarket - to me it's a sign owner was speedster or car modifier. Normal driver wont bother to do so.

I always use AA, very detailed report. If the car had been in an accident and repainted, you should be able to tell from the report (ie. paint thickness gauge).

no free lunch. You pay "discounted" price for AA member. Non-member pays higher price.
