good buy and welcome to the club. Please post your feelings on 'upgrade your car' thread. Clean looking car.
Still i wonder why almost all the pre owned OHCs (that bhpians have bought) have mileage of aroud 45k?

Congratulations on getting a very clean car. The interiors look great too. Black with the beige interiors are a good match. Enjoy your OHC AT

Lol! I forgot to post back about the car!!

1) The car is a good one -- automatic gearbox works really well!
2) Rear Seat Comfort is ok -- could have been better
3) It returns fuel economy of 10 KPL in the City with Air Co ON and returned 15-16 KPL on a trip to coimbatore
4) Good reliability -- no major issues even after 5 Years/45000+ KM

All in all its a good car -- I'd definitely recommend it to anyone out in the market for a second hand automatic!

sorry for going off topic,
i drove an diesel Audi A6 automatic once...
so diesels do come in auto trannys.
but it is in line with the policy of all car makers in india of not offering all options to the customer and making him beg for his crumbs.

Ideally they should fit into your Old Honda City.

You can do a quick check, call up the Honda Spares section over phone and check and verify if the stock steering can be replaced with a different one with the specification. And is there any specific requirements.

Hope that helps.

Thanks,
Vivek

Please Note that few of my friends have replaced the Steering wheel for OHC with MOMO steering wheel.

I hope Fiat, Toyota, Ford, GM, Tata and Mahindra are reading this potential business opportunity.

Well i am sure many of us (including me) are on the lookout for a good Diesel automatic car and Yes the Fluidic Verna AT is here, BUT reading comments from Team-Bhpians about the Verna on various threads.....Here i quote ' The New Verna handles like 1. A drunk Rhino, 2. you will get sea sick, 3. gets wobbly at 80kmph...4.low rear seat, 5. Car for Anands, 6.boat like handling '.

Would any car enthusiast then touch this car ? Expect Verna users and Skoda baiters to skin me alive. Don't get me wrong. I still respect the Hyundai Santro, which so faithfully served me for 10 years.
The Verna AT ticks all the right boxes otherwise, but loses out on handling big time.
