Why is my new Honda Jazz so uncomfortable in the back?

Why is my new Honda Jazz EX CVT not remotely like the car you reviewed on your website? The ride in the back is atrocious.

Possibly the rear tyre pressures. Honda are sometimes delivered on storage tyre pressures. Try reducing the cold pressures of the tyres to 30PSI all round. If that doesn't fix it, you may find that the dealer left the delivery transport spring compressors in the rear coil springs and they need to be removed.

Unrivalled practicality and versatility. Plenty of room for four adults to travel in comfort. Surprisingly fun to drive, especially 1.5iVTEC Sport model.
