Honda parts if you buy from Honda are bit expensive because these are No 1 and reliable. But you can't say about toyota it's my experience that toyota guys b choona laga sakty hein by giving you No 2 parts.
Honda city is known for its fuel economy and it s proved in PW as well. However lots depends on driving style.
I would recommend honda city instead of xli.
11 km/l is impressive !!! and that too from an automatic. Your average is making me think about cars average.
Are you quoting the reading of your car's odo-meter/multi-meter ? Or you calculated it ?
Because my car tells me it is giving 12.6 km/l ( fluctuates b/w 12.4 - 12.8 ) but actually when I calculated it was giving 11.5 ...
I am calculating it tank to tank.
car is showing 11.9
I am getting 10.7 easily with very stable drive, no hard on throttle will do the job for you!
cleans the air filter every week.
Yes, Auto is no doubt one hell of a comfort specially within city, that too Khi, Lhr specially!
just consider you are sacrificing around 2-3 KM/Ltr for the sake of your comfort If you get this mind set, you are good to go with Auto tranny Else, go for manual if eco average is your first priority. mine was comfort though
