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

Dear all, if one has to mandatorily take accessories from dealer itself of 5-10k, which ones would you recommend. Front sensors I am not sure, are they really useful given car is not that big like SUVs? Any others. How is Honda genuine car cover quality?

Cheers

I ended up getting the boot mat, door protectors, front and rear bumper corner protectors (essentials). These in addition to a tail lamp and boot chrome garnish. IIRC this came to around 12K. I did not feel the car cover was worth it

Thanks.

Also is it advisable to take 5 year extended warranty? My usage is not much and Honda is generally reliable so wondering..

Front sensors - useful as overhang is bit more. I took front sensors and underbody coating from dealer.
I did not like Honda seat covers especially after seeing top Z variant factory seat cover. I have V variant without seat cover. I clean once in 6 months using Dazlo Carpet & Upholstery Cleaner (available on Amazon).

3 year warranty is standard. You can take 2 years additional warranty by paying around 14-15K. You can extend it later if required.

I, as a principle, take maximum extended warranty for all car and bike purchases. Specifically, given my City is a CVT version, it made all the more sense to take the extended warranty.

As a side note, Honda service costs are fairly reasonable and I intend to stick to ASC post expiry of standard warranty, for peace of mind. An extended warranty is very helpful in this case where you stick to ASC as there will be no bottlenecks in case of a claim

I did not like Honda ....

Front sensors have been discontinued as an OEM accessory. This is what was communicated to me at the time of purchase in Jun 2022. This could be due to the humungous effort required in tearing down the dashboard for electrical fitment

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

Is the Honda City now available with wireless android auto and apple carplay ? I have just now checked the website and it tells that we can connect it wirlessly. Or is it for bluetooth ?

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

So a Honda rep called me today randomly and said that my RSA card has arrived, and I should come to pick it up.

I never bought the RSA lol, so kept the phone.

Seems like scamsters have got hold of a Honda RSA client database.

I got a similar call last week and I told the chap unknowingly that Iíll collect the card from the showroom. He asked me to pay 3.5k INR and thatís when I got suspicious as RSA was included when I bought my car.

Remember there is a thread reported for the same activity. Be careful guys. Incidentally the call is for a Honda RSA

I was scammed by a Road Side Assistance fraud | Scammers mentally harassed me as well

Why is it mandatory to take accessories worth any amount?

Are they saying they won't do the sale unless you agree to buy the accessories?
If so, do scout for better dealers.

Also, if I may ask, which variant are you considering?

Well if there is one word to describe this, it would be: bland.

Somehow feel the earlier one was better. Even the audio head unit seems to be the same - so that’s a bit of a shame.

The new Verna (yet to be launched) seems to have stolen a march over the Honda city at least when it comes to the exterior design. Post the gen3, the city design seems to have gone backwards.

Well I hope they've found a new supplier for the rear camera module. If they are serious about customer feedback, this really has to be corrected.

think its for bluetooth. HERE IS THE PIC:

They have removed the facelifted car and have brought back the non facelift car in the website. I'm sure these pics are accurate. I did a vr experience in the website too. What I couldn't find are the buttons for ventilated seats. I guess honda has omitted this feature this time too.
