    Default Bad Jumps Honda City New shape

    My suspension makes a lot of noise even in the lightest of bumps which you would never even feel in a corrolla. its not just noise, the whole car bounces. any solution to this? i really like this car but this thing im beginning to hate. any way around this issue or a "jugaar"?

    I am also facing same type of issue in civic 07. Most of the time I drive a charade lowered on HKS coilovers so was thinking this behaviour of civic normal but now I am sure there is something wrong, it bounces a lot and sometimes I also hear a low squealing sound.
    I am thinking to consult some specialist.
    Car is on 205/55R16 Dunlop Direzza and rims r original Honda (gulf model).

    its normal, its suspension is setup very hard with minimum amount of wheel travel. Cheaper to produce and lots of room inside.

    Hondas have always had harder suspensions as compared to Toyotas. That's just the way they are setup. Honda tunes suspensions for slihhtly better handling but results in a bit more understeer.
    As far as City is concerned, they have always been uncomfortable. I don't know why people give it the least importance when they are buying a vehicle for their family and comfirt should be very impirtant. I guess "resale" and "badge prestige" are more important to people.
    The civic in question has bigger rims with lower profile tyres which could be the reason.

    Honda's suspension is not that bad, infect handling is much better. Mine ride use to be fine, recently we got one foundation and some bushes replaced since then feeling difference. soon ll get it inspected.

    I'm using Bridgestone 15 inch along with alloys. It's still an unbelievably hard suspension. Even my cultus is better. Any fix for this?
