    Default Honda City Unstable at 120 km/h on Motorway

    Guys i m a Proud user of Honda Cars since 8 years but my recent with experience with the latest Honda City is not good specially on motorway,. I drove Honda CIty 2013 on motorway last weekend and it was unstable on 120 Km/h specially on highwinds area as well on other areas..

    Let me share the details of the car, company tyres euro star are replaced with Yokohama C Drive, Balancing/alignment was done when tyres were changed. but it still gives the feeling driving a plastic made car on 110-120 cause its vibrates while holding steering tightly i still feeled like its going to move side ways....


    Experts advise needed on this issue

    Thanks,
    Umer

    Tyres may be faulty. The city can only be held culprit when you drive it on stock tyres and report.

    your city is shaped like a shopping trolley - tiny wheels on a tall body, the suspension is made to just prop the car up not to be dead bolt stable on highways (for that buy a german sedan)

    You were expecting it to be stable as a Benz on the highway?

    drove my aspire at 155 kmph on National highway and felt fine, i think somethings wrong with your tyres / suspension.
