hello lovely people,
i bought mine on my birthday 12th november 2013
its honda city 1.5 aspire prosmatec and i bought colour BLACK (its a pain in the **** to keep it clean) but i manage to do it.
the ride itself is pretty lovely. i too never had automatic car before and my parents always kept manual civics and corolllas.
i had option to buy between altis automatic and city 1.5 aspire prosmatec. but i chose city because in islamabad cotolla get stolen in a second. three of my friends lost their GLI corolla this year
so i wanted to secure my investment as i have heard honda city is a nightmare for people who steal cars as its not piece of cake to breach.
second the multimedia system is pretty good BUT
RIDE IS VERY BUMPY AND LEATHER SEATS ONLY LOOK COMFORTABLE BUT ARE HORRIBLE :((( sorry to say. i have this car for a month now and specially the back seats are like a metal bench of a park. the rides pretty bumpy but as i use it in islamabad its not that bad
(any clues which tire should i get to make it a bit smooth) ?
i am getting mileage of 14.6 in isb. i use it very gently i am a wuss when it comes to driving fast
The best part of this car is that it has back vents under the front seats i liked the fact that the driver seat and passenger seats have 2 ac/heating fan ducts underneath for back seats comfort which my grandmother absolutely enjoy when she sits at the back for her weekly medical check up :D:DD:D ( But she complains alot abt horrible so called leather seats in the back)
any clue how city leather seats can be improved?
overall its a decent car and a treat for a 23 year old like me
DO i recommend this car to anyone else?
if your buying it for your parents NO. if you are buying it for yourself to take your friends and your girlfriend for a ride thn YES SIR. This car has proper power. 1.5 engine is nicely done. i find this car far better thn my fathers 9th gen civic because city is compact and fits everywhere and has no un-necessary bumper extension/shapes which could get a bump everyday. (Suspension is hard and is proper racing suspension) my cousin own a mercedes e-class amg and when he changes the car mode to sport the cars suspension turn to hard . thats exactly how honda city suspension is 365 days of the year
Seats are horrible. back seats are absolutely disgusting and no comfort. front seats are bit better thn back seats because of bucket design it holds you right but back seat, my grandmother and my mother if i have to drop thm or take them somewhere they tell me why do i own a bench at the back of the car :///
