I agree with this point with your low usage pattern, i would also recommend not to burn extra moolah on tyre upgrade. I have a 2 month old city clocked almost 4000 kms on stock tyres and all on national highways, they fare pretty well with my sedate driving style. I always keep the car between 80-90 kmph at 2000 rpm and have had no trouble with stock tyres in the last 4000 kms.

I have a Honda Amaze which I service with Crystal Honda Wagholi center. I'm satisfied with their service. Service Advisors would try to push for add-ons but we can ask them to stick to the schedule per service manual and they would oblige.

Here is what I do. I drive my car to the service center and stay till it gets serviced and drive back. During the service I request to be present to see the engine oil change. Times when I'm unable to take the car myself to service center, I ask SA to record a video of engine oil change and send it in WhatsApp.

I did not opt for any external insurance. I just got a few quotes from policybazaar, added the exact features what Honda was offering and showed those quotes to the Honda Sales guy. He matched the price for Honda Assure since it was lesser than what was originally quoted to me, so I purchased Honda Assure in the end.

How did underbody coating help in covering the wheel wells? I assumed it is just a black coating which would still attract dust/mud to get stuck onto it.

Also, did the coating help in reducing tyre noise?

I got the coating done from the showroom before delivery. They used Wurth coat and I must say it does dampen the road noise to a small extent. The wheel wells donít look ugly anymore too. However, if youíre looking to minimise tyre noise, changing to Michelin Primacy 4ST is your best bet. I changed mine after 700 kms and there was a drastic difference in road noise.

My bad. It does not cover, but helps hiding the ugly paint job and bad finish of the wheel well. I did not notice major difference in road noise.

Hello Guys,
I have also been thinking of getting the underbody coating done for my 15 day old City. Would you recommend getting it done from a Honda workshop or from outside? If so which workshop would you recommend in Pune if you are aware?

I used abro rubberized undercoating just for the wheel wells. I feel tyre noise has reduced.

My main issue was loud noise when driven over loose gravel. Improved now.

It is easy to DIY. I suggest only coat the wells unless you live in coastal areas.

I am not sure if anybody has noticed but the Honda city Hybrid comes with a black cover below the boot, this might have been added as an additional protection for the battery in the boot, does any body know if this black thingy is available as an accessory ? it would look nice on a white coloured car and provide additional protection to the under body as well.

Honestly could not find time to read this thread long since as I was busy in Office.
Also missed few updates here as usual. Meanwhile my City will be reaching 20k Kms by this weekend.
But still made some time to make a quick dash to Yercaud & Kolli Hills in June with my school friend.

As usual City CVT performed flawless and also it was a good test of driving skills.
Since I was accompanied by a very seasoned hill driver learnt few tips and tricks too.

Hello,

My Honda City is due for the third free service on 05-Aug-2022.
Will not be able to get it serviced on the mentioned date, due to my unavailability.
If I postpone the service, would the warranty or any such thing get void ?

What are the chances of Honda launching a 6th Gen Honda city (for the ICE versions) or atleast a facelift in 2022 ?

I am in process of shortlisting City CVT, could you please let me know how it performed in the descent from Kolli hills as it has nearly 70 hairpin bends.

In general for automatics how we are supposed to take care of Descent's to avoid breaks from overheating, for manual's I use Gears to reduce speed. Not sure how it is done here.

Couple of weeks delay is ok, but try not to delay the service especially during warranty period.

They normally launch facelift after 3 years. Current generation was launched in 2020. So, you can expect facelift in 2023.
