    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?

    Well this may be a shocker coming from me, but I was disappointed with the new City.


    It just doesn't look like something Honda Pakistan would've done, major cost cutting, feature removal has been done on the car.


    They removed a couple of things from the Civic as well, like the steering wheel controls, original deck (which they added recently) and cruise control. But gave us other goodies like a good interior fabric (talking about Oriel here) & extra map lights.


    However I don't believe Honda Atlas compromises on build quality, at least they did not with the new Civic; and I've had my car for 2+ years now without a single issue Mashallah.


    BUT as far as the new City goes-- I don't think an engine sheild should have caused this. An engine sheild really doesn't keep "water out", its more like a splash sheild built for keeping the bottom side of your engine & transmission clean.


    Quality control has always been the highest with Atlas, the quality of the City seems fine but the the car certainly looks starved of some extra goodies like the Indian version. Anyhow, I wouldn't buy the car at the price of 1.3-1.4 million, I probably wouldn't buy the Corolla either.


    Anyhow, I believe the OP has been sold a lemon, too bad our country doesn't have laws to protect consumers in such cases.

    there is a lack of consistency among every local auto manufacturer's quality standards.. despite honda has always been on a higher side as far as QC is concerned but i have already heard a lot negative about honda QC in recent times, particularly the city. sad to hear what happened to the thread starter.. i can imagine how it feels when you spend a hefty amount of 1.3 million and still experience things such as this. sadly there is no such thing as 'competition' in our market while things can only improve when there would be no monopoly, there will be a healthy competition and most importantly the consumer become wise enough to spend the money.

    man go to honda ppl and ask them for claim of this fualts which u encountered... they will fix them for free and even can change ur car with a new one if the problem is with a chassi... well i would suggest u not to sell ur car, wait for atleast few months, maybe u will regret it later.

    my friend works in the factory of honda here on multan raod and he told me tht in the past years only 7 customers claims were intertained as major faults in the chassi and they got new cars from Honda. one customer had sued honda in the consumer courts in lahore, there was some problem with the engine and the honda ppl refused so he had to go to the courts, anyways he won the case and the court ordered honda to replace him with a new car, after tht the court also told honda to change their claim policies which covers replacement for major faults.

    as far as ur city is concerned i think its a major fault, so go buddy get a new one. and keep it to ur self dont sell it...
