Re: 3-years with a pre-owned Honda City Diesel

Ours is the same car (MY 2016) in the same trim but white in color. Our car has done 120,xxx kms and the engine has been dead reliable and I agree with your parents comment, it is pretty comfortable and the mileage is great! I am curious though, why did you got it repainted?

Pretty same situation here too. Ours is 2014 V MT in Wine color. We just bought a Kushaq 1.5 DSG. Kushaq is needed because dad can't drive manual anymore, so the City has unofficially become my car to drive around in!

Good to know that you too own a City iDTEC and the engine is reliable despite doing 120k Kms on the odo. Why I got the whole car repainted because the car was filled with a huge dent on RHS quarter panel (thanks to TSRTC bus), minor dent on running board and suddenly, the car was starting to look old. Hence, we got the whole car repainted including removal of dents.

Firstly, congratulations to your dad on getting the Kushaq 1.5 DSG. While the Kushaq might excel in terms of driving pleasure and performance, but still lacks in terms of comfort and space when compared to City.

BTW, is your City Diesel or Petrol?

And, on the other hand, we picked up another preowned City iDTEC albeit 2017 ZX for my cousin recently replacing his 2015 Celerio AMT and this very City has run 72k Kms on the odo when we picked it up.

Ours is a Petrol MT. Hardly run, only 45k km in 8 years.
Surprisingly, my whole family prefers the Kushaq in terms of comfort than the city. Sure, the seats might be plushier in the city, but the stable and compliant suspension of the Kushaq feels better than the somewhat bouncy(especially in the rear) suspension setup in the city.
I think the difference in our opinions comes from the fact that the Kushaq has noticeable plusher suspension than the Taigun

Re: 3-years with a pre-owned Honda City Diesel

Nothing like a reliable diesel engine if you want to clock hundreds of thousands of miles. I wonder how the batteries on contemporary EVs like Nexon and Tiago will over similar miles and potential replacement costs. This generation of City is the best looking.

Re: 3-years with a pre-owned Honda City Diesel

Got the car serviced at 156k Kms today at my usual Honda ASC and costed me close to ₹14k and the regular service itself costed me around ₹7k while engine mounts costed me around ₹6.6k.

And, also got the engine mounts changed as they were showing signs of age.

On the other hand, the car has run 11000 Kms since last service in Dec 22 and 6000 Kms since last update as this is the only car at home for now till we get a new car to complement along with City (sold off the Taigun recently).

Re: 3-years with a pre-owned Honda City Diesel

Got the tyres changed to MRF Perfinza 195/60R15 yesterday and did around 160 Kms post upgrade.

Had to replace the present set of tyres (Yokohama Earth-1, bought in Nov 2020 during covid), as it has run nearly 60k Kms (58k Kms to be precise).

Felt these tyres are silent and also, at the same time, got impressed with the grip it offers and drove the car on 100 Kmph, didn't feel any noise filtering into the cabin. Hope these will last for around 60k Kms just like Yokohama Earth-1 did.
