I wish I could point to just one issue and say "this is it" but when you are dealing with the rear suspension or rear end are too many potential candidates to look at. For example, have you had the rear shocks checked? It might be the bushing at the top or it might be that the nuts and bolts at the top and bottom need adjustment. Or it could be that the exhaust system is loose and banging against the body. It also might be a loose rear suspension member that is banging against its carrier. Or, it could be something as simple as flat-spotting on your Jazz's rear tires. So, what do I think it is? I am tempted to say it is likely related to a loose bushing on one of your Jazz's shocks. The bushing is a hard-rubber piece at the top of the shock. If it is loose, it could be banging against the cover and creating the sound you hear. If you feel competent to check this problem, you will need a good pneumatic jack to lift the rear end and keep it up safely. Never use the scissors jack that came with your Jazz because it is not designed to keep your vehicle in the air so you can work on it. Use it only when you are changing tires. This is a problem that should be addressed when you have time as it should not affect your car's handling. It is more of an annoyance than anything else. To see if there might be other issues affecting you Jazz, look at http://www.safecar.info.
check front-end out, immediately, could be a bad bushing/ control arm, this would need attention, asap, you could lose control of vehicle, or somethingelse is broken, shock, but the control arm / bushing is my bet. get it repaired, unsafe condition !!!
If you mean the mechanic plugged in a code reader and didn't get any codes, some engine troubles won't make the light come on. You can't fix what you don't know is wrong so try this. Does it make the noise if the car is NOT moving? if it only makes the banging while driving then I would be looking for a loose body part. If it makes the noise while sitting still then you need to find a mechanic that can "listen" to the engine noise and determine if it is coming from the "top end" or "bottom end' of the engine.
It is possible that the fault can be due to the suspension or the dampers.
So you need to check all the suspension parts , check the action of the dampers to confirm this fault. Rigid suspension can cause this noise and it needs to be confirmed only after the parts is examined closely. Also you can check the strut and fittings, the steerring and also look out for loose ends.
Get your front end inspected. I bet something's binding in the suspension or in the steering components. Also, have someone make sure the frame isn't bent, which could cause your wandering. Lastly, get an alignment done. If tapping a curb while parking gently can mess up your vehicle's alignment, imagine what crashing it into something/someone does. Chances are you have front end repairs and an alignment ahead of you.
