Nice report, RAGG! With the 2 final contenders, i.e. NHC and Adventure, you simply could not have gone wrong. So you pick what suits your needs best.

Great written review I must say. The whole before purchase program that one undergoes is been totally written. I'm also in the same mood as yours except for the fact that mine decision is for my first car and a compact car.

I truely look forward for more such reviews from your side bro... Cheers and have a nice time with your new car.

Hi RAAG,

Can you please post your mileage details on the Honda City in city and highway driving?

Hi KC,

Mileage after first service in Delhi City is 12-12.5 without AC using octane 91 petrol. My office is about 10 km from my home. It takes me about 30-45 minutes to cover that distance due peak traffic. I am yet to take it on a long trip. I understand the mileage will further improve after second service. Will keep you posted.

All the best

You don't need to use Octane 91. It will do your car no good. Instead, use System G or other additives, which will cleanse and keep away the carbon deposits.

Very very nice writeup RAGG. Certainly beneficial for first time car buyers.

I love this forum for the detail it carries, one word, awsome !

Hi,

Good write up and analysis.
Personally, i have an axe to grind with the Honda. I owned one for four years. I have had so many problems. The fuel pump, The lamps, The a/c...Anyways, all the best to u...
Agreed the accoustics are good but safety factor is a big question mark.
Also, they have internal tie ups on with ICICI for vehicle financing which are so fixed.

You sure are one of those rare species. I very rarely come across one like you. Japs are known for quality than anything else.
