Bought a used 5th gen Honda City petrol MT to replace my 2nd gen City
My experience with Honda has been good – the service center experience, safety of the car, mileage, comfort etc has made it all great.
BHPian LJO recently shared this with other enthusiasts.
Hi there, I am a fresher on the forum.
Let me share my overwhelming experience of the Honda City 5th gen:
Bought in Feb’22 (2nd hand, initially bought in Jan’21) City VX MT with an odo reading of 10k kms. Absolutely raw and well maintained therefore went for it (checked all company records before buying). Did a thorough inspection, ran it for about 40 to 50 kms and we decided to go for it in a couple of days.
Driven about 20k kms since then on the stock Bridgestone Ecopia tyres and had an inconsistent yet a beautiful experience so far. Driven partially on highways/expressways and partially in city. I had a Honda City ZX Vtec (2008 model) type 3 (10th anniversary) which in itself was a great luxury feeling car which I ran for 14 years with an odo reading of 1.25L kms. Sold it in Jan’22 and switched to this beauty and yes, it was the best decision I could have taken. Considering my requirements I had no option but to go for this category i.e., sedan.
My experience with Honda has been good – the service center experience, safety of the car (will share how), mileage, comfort etc has made it all great.
Service at 20,000 kms was done in 3,800 rupees (air filter, oil filter, mineral engine oil <not my choice>, tyre rotation, brake cleaning, cleaning of cabin filter, some little things which were only marketing gimmick).
Honda mistakenly added mineral engine oil whereas I asked for the synthetic 2.0 engine oil. Service at 30,000 kms will be done latest by Feb’23 and I will share my experience post that.
Also, I got my clutch switches changed under warranty which were creating some noise when I pressed or released the clutch. I will continue some things related to my experience in my next thread (which are extremely interesting).
For now will share some of my City’s (VX) upgrades:
- Nippon LED in low beam – 60w each 6000 kelvin
- Nippon LED high beam – 60w each 6000 kelvin
- Philips 16W Led Fog lamps – 6000 kelvin
- Pair of Aries component speakers in front doors
Rest, most of the accessories/mods I went through were from Honda itself – scuff plates (best of the lot), black Honda leatherette seat covers, front lip chrome garnish, fog lamp chrome garnish, window chrome garnish, mats, door guards, bumper protectors, visor, pillows, neck cushion from AF, screen guard for the stereo, ghost light, boot mat, local chrome door handles.
I will be consistently sharing my experiences with my fam here, for now just enjoy the pics attached.
Drive safe and responsibly.
