Just to share real driving experience of City '09 that may be helpful to other prospective buyers. No need to discuss the looks, just the driving experience. If you are a Toyota lover, kindly refrain from posting here! This is not a new Honda vs Toyota arena!
My experience is with MT with stock rims and tyres and car has not completed its running!
1- Steering is good
2- Gearing is not very good
3- Clutch feels too close to steering column and sometimes difficult to floor
4- Ride is not very bumpy but road noise is beyond acceptible range (could this be the stock tyres?)
5- Braking is good, haven't tried the ABS though!
6- Seating is comfortable
7- Engine knocking in lower gears specially with A/C On
8- A/C is pretty good
9- Fuel average is acceptible (11 - 12 Km/L in city) and probably will improve
That's it from my side for now. Please share your driving experience and ways to improve quality of ride!
