Honda city is VFM. One of the best vehicle to drive. If you get it then hop it. I don't know what GURUS of this forum might say.

Honda City is the machine!
it has the reliability of honda. Whereas SX4 has many niggling issues, which keep cropping up. Moreover, city has been in the indian market for quite some time. The people who have it become fans of honda and have not regretted their decision of choosing one.

NHC Zx is a good model... way better than the SX4 (actually i dont think its comparable) as Honda City engine is far more superior and probably you will enjoy the drive even after 100,000 kms - but cant say the same about SX4. But since, its done 36k in less than 2 years, please make sure the car has been maintained well and in good condition... alternatively keep looking for more NHC deals, i am sure you will be able to find a low mileage car somewhere ! Also, somehow i dont like "No insurance" cars for whatever reason !

Also, why dont you look around for a low mileage Elantra as well... you might be in for a surprise, cheaper deal and in better condition !

Good luck

thanks nandans,abhijeet and shishir..
my one another concern is the service intetrval,honda needs to be serviced every 5K kms or in 6months,whereas SX4 10K kms or u guys think honda will pinch my pocket.
Any idea what is the avg charge per service for HC.
aslo anywher i can get to comapre the spare parts price list b/w HC and SX4.

I see a lot of people recommending the NHC out here, however you still need to ascertain whether it will meet your needs.
You are looking for a FE car that is low on maintainance and comfortable, and both of these cars will not disappoint you.
Now about the SX4:
- Cheaper to buy
- Cheaper spares
- Niggling Issues might crop up
- Not the best for highway runs
- Comfortable
- Newer model

The NHC:
- Much more reliable
- More FE
- Will outlast the SX4
- Superb to drive in the city
- Slightly underpowered on the highway
- Ride is a bit stiff though the rear seat is superb
- More expensive spares (but much more reliable)
- Body dents easily

Now looking at these factors, you need to decide on what you want and go for it.
Between these two, the NHC looks like a better deal in the long run.

Honda City. I drive the same car and I can vouch about it. Its easy on your wallet to maintain and is a great car to drive in all conditions.

Is the price justifiable
NO!!! Thats the price for a Single owner car in very good condition. I have come across such cars.

3.2-3.5 lakhs is what I would like to buy one such car provided it is maintained well at around 60K km genuine mileage. I suppose that the RC reflect the current no. of owners as 2.

PS: Have a look at the tyres and battery, if they needed to be changed, you have to consider its cost too(around 15K). And oh! insurance, what about that? Another 10,000/-.

IMHO 8.5 lakhs for a 5 year old Ford is a bit too high. according to me it should be around 7-7.5 depending on whether its a 4X2 or 4X4.
