they car is back from the repairs and i will click the pics today in about 10 mins and upload to my older thread

the list of the parts changed i have already posted on the thread

the nhc is a cheap car to run but not a cheap car to repair after a accident

the FE i get from all three are 13 without a/c in city and with a/c i get around 11

so its a cheap to run and not cheap reapir

Do you own one ! Is this out of personal experience or hearsay !!

Personaly I think Honda makes great cars. Their srvice centers are not that good. But the car more than makes up for it.

i agree. i owned an ohc. the car is absolutely amazing and there werent any problems. but the spare parts were on the higher side than say, a baleno.

...And I always thought OHC was OverHead Camshaft!

(which is in the list of abreviations.)

Thanks for the explanation, thanks for the link

Is the NHC type I's A/c not so effective for the back seat passengers ? This summer my dad travelled about 400 kms to and fro in my uncle's 05 NHC ( warm silver) and was complaining that the A/c was not so effective on the rear seat despite of putting the blower on full blast.

the a/c problem you are telling is not because the a/c is not powerful enough it is because the nhc has a huge glass area so it heats the cabin up
so its takes some time to cool the cabin down

Manikjeet,

I don't think the cooling time was a problem, coz the journey was from Mumbai to our native place before Goa and all the while the a/c in the rear seat didn't seem so effective
