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

Hi everyone,

Upgraded 185/55 stock (Ecopia) tyres on my ZX almost immediately after car delivery to 195/55 Bridgestone Sturdo, which is the relatively new range from Bridgestone claiming to have 29% more tyre life over their earlier B290s. First impressions, car seems more planted, better braking and somewhat lesser noise.

cheers

I shared some experiences from my drive at the link here (Delhi-Mumbai expressway to reduce travel time by 12 hours).

So regarding the cracked windscreen - I gave my car on Monday, the surveyor came yesterday since the Feb-end closing was going on. Got a message from the body shop manager regarding fitment being done today, and I should be able to collect it soon. My conversation with him sparked a few doubts:
  1. He mentioned getting the Fastag reissued. Since it is from ICICI, I think I should be able to get another Fastag sticker linked to the same account right?
  2. Also, the high-security sticker (with the registration number) also needs to be taken again. I have no clue regarding the process, and he mentioned it is needed from the RTO. Anyone has ideas/has done this before and can guide me?

Lastly, with summer around the corner, can someone recommend good sunshades for the door windows that allow for visibility (side-mirrors and general visibility) and yet block out a decent amount of sunlight?
Unlike the Seltos, the rear 2 doors do not come with inbuilt sun shades so will have to buy a set for all 4 doors.

I got a set of 4 from Karol bagh for 200-250. Works great

Can you share a photo of how they look or anything similar online?

I initially purchased it from Amazon and returned it due to quality and fitment issues.

Then, I got it from a Delhi-based sunshade manufacturer. It costed me around 1500 for 4 magnetic sunshades (the front ones are half in size for rearview missor visibility). However, the fitment and quality is next level. I don't have any picture but you can go with my word.

Unfortunately I don't have the access to the car right now but they are the ones which fit in between the window frame (non magnetic). I prefer these are magnetic ones temd to scratch the frame overtime

They are half at the front so the mirrors are still visible.

I'll suggest getting the cheap ones as these tend to fade in about a year or so anyway but since they are cheap, you can replace them without a thought

Can someone help me with the above? Essentially, I am curious whether the 2 stickers (in the image below) are an "essential legal requirement" or am I fine if I don't have these on my newly replaced windscreen?

The non-polluting sticker is not a law requirement. But the other one is. I too removed it by mistake. Though I don't think MVD checks for these and I have seen many new vehicles without that.

Honda Stops Synthetic Oil now only Synthetic 2.0

Wanted to share this and quite forgot about it after my 4th Service. In the 3rd service Id used Synthetic oil. When I went for the 4th service and requested the same as per my HCMP, I was told that Honda has stopped Synthetic oil and only Synthetic 2.0 oil is available. I was worried that Id have to now to shell out more money for the cost difference. But was told that due to my HCMP I dont have to pay any extra and Synthetic 2.0 oil will be used.

One good thing is that even though I had bought HCMP for synthetic oil, Im now eligible for Synthetic 2.0 for 5th Service too if Synthetic oil is unavailable then.

Good job Honda, taking care of customers. Unfortunately, HCMP is now not available. And there is no option to renew also. Honda should re-introduce this option.

Regards,
Lsjey

How can we turn off the car to accessory mode? In a traffic stop, if i press on the ignition button it turns off the car completely.

In my previous car, when i used to turn off the ignition (key based) the ICE unit would remain on but the engine would shut off. Do we have something equivalent to this in a push button start stop system?

In a CVT, while pressing the on/off button when the gear is NOT in P mode, enables the accessory mode. Not sure how is it in a manual

Hi everyone,
Changed my honda city horn to Bosch symphony. Brought pair of horns from Amazon at 600 rs odd, went to local mechanic and changed. It took 15-20 min, there was some problem with earthing but it was sorted by connecting wire with lug connectors.

Next i am planning to use Roger abd suspension boosters for those soft suspensions. Any opinions or advice before i place order.

An update on this for those who are interested or may be facing this situation in the future. Fellow TeamBHPian (@Learner) DMed me the number of the person at Ring Road Honda (Gurgaon) who is usually responsible for getting the stickers sorted. I spoke to him and he arranged it within 3 hours. Got it fixed yesterday, and paid 500 for it.

Many thanks to @Learner for helping me out with this!

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

Hi guys,

I am experiencing one of the worst service for my less than a year old Honda City at Dakshin Honda, Mysore Road Bangalore.

The rear passenger door had a minor denting work to be done and the car is in the service center for over 25 days and no work has been done yet. The worst is their service advisor who never updates nor takes the call. I'm now in a limbo and want to escalate.

I can't help but compare the service I have received at Tata Motors for my Hexa for the last 5 years is absolutely stellar. I never thought I could go wrong with a Honda.

Please guide me how to escalate my issues so I can get my car back at the earliest.

Thanks
