    Default Are you happy with your new City? I'm not!

    It's been two months and my experience with the new '09 City has been nothing but hell! I made the mistake of booking the vehicle prior to its launch and ended up paying 1.3 million for a pile of crap. In addition to the dull black interior, the interior space is clastrophobic. I feel cramped in the front. The head space is also cramped. Probably the biggest shock came to me when I was driving on Faisal Avenue on a rainy day and all of a sudden the engine stopped working and there was water seepage all over the front carpet floor and the trunk. When taking delivery of the car, I had expressed my fears of driving the car on a rainy day to the dealer regarding the lack of protective sheeting below the engine but the showroom guy rubbished these claims and asked me to drive away without any tension. The seepage in the trunk was more pronounced as the water had apparently seeped throught the so-called "glued" joints in the trunk. I decided to sell off this vehicle but no one is even prepared to pay me over 9 lacs for this vehicle. Its a good thing I haven't sold off my 07 city. I consider the older city-despite its poor pick up- as more spacious and comfortable.


    I apologise for taking your time but has anyone else experienced the same problems with the new city or am I the only one here?

    @aviatorx


    Sir theres no way anyone is going to believe that a city 2009, just 2 months driven is sold for 925.


    I dont ask for proof as i dont need any. I feel sad for u both ways, even if u had 1 or u have sold 1.
    Stay away!

    Try selling your brand new car that has mutated into a boat and you will get an idea of what I'm talking about. My past experience with Suzuki Cultus was a nightmare but never expected this from Honda. Yes, I sold the car to a dealer. I've had 11 people who inspected my car and they were more prepared to buy my older city instead of this one. The car's boot required repair work and the Honda dealership was not prepared to fix this problem under warranty even though it was a manufacturing default. I've learnt one thing from this ordeal. Never buy any vehicle without inspection and/or before official launch. If your cities are performing well, then I'm happy for you all. This is the first time I've been stung by Honda and it came as a shock to me. The lesson: all that glitters (Locally assembled Honda= Quality) is not gold.

    well this is what i did with my new city

    got the fenders opened, dashboard removed,

    bought almost 2 litres of Silicon Sealent and put it in all the body frame,

    the ******** at Honda ( and i heard even Suzuki) arent sealing the joints with Silicon type material at all, this will cause the car to rust in 3 years probably and my city also got flooded while recent rains in ibd but i spent almost 5 thousand to get it repaired,

    all the new cars are crap,. Period
    i love mangoes, both of em

    @aviatorx I offer u 10, 00000 wthout even seeing the car. Also I would have offered you more if I could afford more than this.. I think you don't own a city and you are a corolla lover and all you did is to create a thread to see what people say... Any way if you are not a liar ...My offer is there for you any time without even seeing the car. let see your response

    zaeemasif, Dude. I'm most definitely am not a corolla lover. You see we have a problem. We're always paranoid. fearing conspiracy theories and stuff like that. The fact of the matter is that we Pakistanis tend to live in a state of denial. People flocked to buy the previous Corolla when it was launched in 2003 despite the fact that it had serious breaking issues. Even with the new corolla, the 1.3L version has a serious torque problem but we're still living in denial. People rushed to buy the new City in 2003, 2006 and then 2009 despite the fact that it was an under featured car. But the people (including myself) were living in a fool's paradise by taking the "honda quality" myth at its face value and flocked to buy these overpriced econoboxes. You see, all locally assembled cars are crap. You can buy BMWs and Mercs with enhanced safety features in this price range in foreign countries. We need to get out of this Toyota-Honda-Suzuki mentality once and for all. And for those who have offered me, 1 million plus for the vehicle which I have already sold, trust me dudes, If you had inspected this vehicle, you would've puked and left without even saying goodbye. We need to change our mentality. Make our voice heard. If we're not getting in return of the amount we have paid, then boycott is the only answer. My apologies if I hurt anyone's feelings on this forum.
