The past 8 years of my life have been spent, living with Catherine's elder sister, Honda city diesel, and I have been married to my wife for 5 years literally.
I have learnt to live with it. No sound dampeners used.

Amazing review
I was looking into buying these mats for my City ZX MT for quite sometime now, but was holding off as I was not sure of the quality and fitting. Don't think I'll buy it now, the fitting does not look good. I'm so glad you posted pictures of these

I had bought the DDPAI mini2, it is not great either. Can't really see vehicles number plates. But I was looking into buying the Mola N3 with GPS. Is the video quality good of this camera, can you read vehicles' numbers at night?
The DDPAI app is pathetic though, super laggy and not really user friendly.

Dear Kids,
My beautiful wife and I decided to buy a new car. But before I tell you how we decided which car to buy, I would like to tell you how I met your mother, my wife.
Absolutely loved the write-up. The analogy is beautiful. Burst out laughing when I finished reading the first section.

Congratulations on finally marrying "Catherine". Wish you many years of happy married life!

Night - Only if the vehicles ahead are stationary or maybe under 15-20 kmph. No such luck with the oncoming traffic though, even at lower speeds.

Brought laughter. Nice innovative narration.

Honda City known for long-term reliability. Wishing you decades of happy miles in your beautiful relationship

I had love-hate relationship with Honda city as it was the first proper sedan that i wanted to buy so much many many years ago but cursed honda for not sorting the bottom scrapping issue at that time, which they had fixed in previous generation, finally. Otherwise, its a gem of a sedan.

Has anyone tried out these GFX mats?
https://www.amazon.in/dp/B08P5CG5MJ/...5ZNMP3M9H43F1X

Finalizing accessories for a V MT buy. The Honda mats that are part of the Basic Kit, don't seem to be a snug fit, especially at the rear. The test drive car had quite a bit of sand on the carpeted floor, between edge of the mat and the door. It is surprising that a Honda supplied mat does not have accurate contours to fit the space!

The other accessories being considered are the front and rear bumper protectors and side body molding. Apparently these come in a neutral (black?) colour and will be painted at the dealership prior to fitment. Costs about Rs. 500 on top of the Honda accessory pricelist, supposedly for the painting.

Right now I have installed Elegant’s Cord Mats, these are good fit for CVT where there’s dead pedal but not for MT. There’s a significant space left behind the clutch which the mat doesn’t cover.

Re: The 5th-gen Honda City in India. EDIT: Review on page 62

I gave the car for a third free service, I thought of getting illuminated scuff plates from honda's genuine accessory and after installing that car started showing smart key entry issues.
I already had the city logo projector installed and the scuff plates coupler was added to the same socket.

Car is still with the service center folks at honda. They will diagnose deeper tomorrow and I am expecting a revert by afternoon.

Anybody else who is using both illuminated scuff plates and city logo projector together facing such issues.

Re: The 5th-gen Honda City in India. EDIT: Review on page 62

Hi Friends, need some inputs for two issues I face with a 5th gen City CVT that I own. The car is just 2 months old and in stock including tyre and has done 2k till now.

1) I hear a squeaking noise from driver side brake when moving the car from stand still with brakes applied. I had mentioned this to Service Advisor during first free service and he mentioned that this is normal in all CVTs. I didn't pursue it because I thought it might disappear after few months of use. But the noise is still present. May I know if any of you with CVT has this issue? What could be the reasons?

2) For the past few weeks I feel a low intensity but high frequency vibrations on the driver side floorboard. I feel this only when the car is in motion. And even when in motion, I don't feel the vibrations either on accelerator or brake pedal, but only on the floorboard. But this is not noticed by the co-passenger on her side. And it is pronounced when the road is not smooth.

It is not too bad that my foot lifts up from the floorboard, but this low intensity one is causing a tingling feel in my left foot now. It is like keeping your foot on top of a phone in continuous low intensity* vibration mode. I don't know if this was present from beginning and I noticed it only now. May I know if this is common in other City as well due to the road undulations felt on floorboard? If not, any pointers for troubleshooting?

I face this too. But I've figured out when and why. I believe it is because the wheels are trying to push forward when the car is in standstill with D mode. And the brakes are holding them in place. The moment I let go, it squeals. It only happens when I brake the car in D for a long time or press the brakes hard.

The same doesn't happen if the car is in standstill with N mode or I press the brakes lightly. That is how I've somehow managed to get rid of this brake noise. Had highlighted this issue during first service and they cleaned the brake pads etc. but not much help otherwise.

Yes that brake squeaking sound is there in my car too. when you brake it to standstill, move the gear to N and there is no noise when you shift back to D and start moving. If you hold the brake in D mode, it squeaks when you let go of the brakes. I guess it's because car is trying to move while brakes are applied in D mode.

Update on the issue of brake squeak and humming sound @80kmph- After spending 2 weeks at the service centre the good folks at Courtesy honda diagnosed the problem to front right wheel bearing and hub, replaced the bearing as well as the bearing assembly front rhs under warranty, and i am happy to say that the sound has absolutely vanished, also no more squeeky squeeks from the brakes, total pin drop silence in the car. Giving the car some tender love and care today will share a pic of the happy katana once its been pampered

Thank you mAndArk & Nav-i-gator. So looks like the SA was correct in saying that the noise is present in all CVTs. Bit strange that I haven't faced this squeaking noise in other Automatic cars.

For the second issue, I have booked an appointment with the Service Centre tomorrow.
