    Honda City 2009 onwards has a hard suspension. But since you were ok earlier - any chance your tyres are older now? When was the last time you rotated your tyres? How many miles on them?

    hard thumps are usually due to

    bad strut dampers
    saggy springs
    bad control arm bushings
    bad strut hats
    bad ball joints

    if you get your car oiled from underneath, your bushings are shot, If you ever had any work done and the lower arm bushings were tightened whilst the wheel was free hanging in the air - your bushings are shot now - they need to be tightened with the wheel in normal drive position only. The factory manual heavily instructs this - and they recommend to use a jack under the hub so the car lifts onto the jack then tighten everything.
