Agree with you, even I've noticed this since I own both cars. City NVH is a bit worse, probably due to the shoddy noise insulation, hardly any beading on the doors etc, an area in which Hyundai excels.

I know right. City sounds so loud at 100, much louder than a grandi10 petrol also.

Exactly. How I wish it had a 6 MT for much more relaxed cruising on the highways. Almost 3K is a bit much for 100 kmph I feel. Love the engine note though.

I will be taking my Honda city V MT(Petrol) for 2nd paid servicing over this weekend. However the car has run only 3k kilometers from last service done 6 months back. I am thinking of not changing the engine oil as it's not even halfway mark of it's designated range. I also doubt if the fully synthetic engine oil will have any quality degradation over a period of 6 months. I plan to change after completion of around 7k kilometers from last oil change or during the next service whichever comes earlier.

I am planning on asking the SA to check oil quality and top-up if required instead of full oil change. Not sure if this will have any effect on the warranty.

Suggestions are welcome.

Quoting my own post. Checked with SA and he is adamant on change of engine oil as viscosity must have degraded over 6 months. In other words, he accepted that life of fully synthetic engine oil used in Honda cars is 6 months and not adhering to it will affect warranty.

He was trying to sell the usual stuffs like AC duct cleaning, Engine compartment clean which I politely refused.

Estimate is around 6k with a major chunk on labor.

Guys,
I need some expert suggestion. I am in look out for better headlights for night driving and I see a few jazzy options @ https://www.autoglam.in/honda/city.

Anyone tried one of these? Any feedback is much appreciated.

Thanks!

My 2014 iDTEC V hit the 1lakh km mark. A frugal workhorse that will never break down in the middle of the night, but let down by shoddy build quality.

3 years with Osram Nightbreaker Unlimited. I had a pair for the high beams. A definite but mild improvement over stock bulbs. I am back on the originals now and an contemplating going for HIDs or BiLEDs from Morimoto. The standard headlights are just not suitable for highway driving.

Hey guys, I've run into some issue and seeking some help.

Couple months back I got Sony XAV-AX5000 installed in my 2015 i-vtec, in doing so the steering wheel audio controls were lost and I couldn't make the time to have it fixed.
Now yesterday I went in to get it done but have been unable to do so. Apparently for it to work Sony has a cable named RC-SR1 which I have but the problem I am facing is this wire has additional sub wires, Input 1, Input 2 and Ground, I am not able to figure out which wire has to be connected to which (color/pin) wire in the coupler which goes into the unit, according to the manual it should be Ground with Black and Input 1 with green but this hasn't worked, and so haven't other wires we've tried and connected to.

Anybody here who had an aftermarket unit installed has an idea how to retain this or someone who has the knowledge of this can explain me better what needs to be done, thank you.

Attaching few pics for better understading.

I've recently had the XAV-AX3000 model fitted in my pre facelift city, last month. Both models are very similar except one has capacitive touch screen while the 3000 model does not.

All steering wheel controls are also operational.

This task was successfully carried out by Motor Concept in Kirti Nagar in New Delhi. Please give the owner (Aman) a call and he should be able to assist you.

Thank you! Altho the problem has been partially rectified. After hours of trying, the technician decided to check everything with a different stereo and the steering controls worked, apparently the issue is with my XAV5000, will be paying Sony service station a visit after Diwali and if this is the case definitely getting a new unit from them and returning this.

Do we know the size of tweeters in Honda City 2017?

Congratulations!
Yes, 195 would be a good one with a loss of about 0.5-1 KMPL mileage.
I would suggest you Yokohama Earth that gives a good balance b/w "ride comfort" and "longevity". I have been using this for 40K Kms on my City CVT. Going good so far.

+1 to the 195 size.

I have been using the Michelin XM2s from Day 1 and would recommend the Michelins. The latest in the market is the Michelin Primacy 4 ST and I would recommend the same. The quoted price for Primacy 4 ST in Bangalore was Rs.6,700 per piece (without negotiation) when I checked a few days back.

Michelin Primacy 4 ST

The Earth 1s on the other hand are a value for money option and would cost you about Rs.1,500 lesser per tire.

If you are planning for HID then go for the Morimotos. I had recently written about my Uncle's experience with these > URL

195 / 60 R 15 is the correct one. You will also get the advantage of a 5 mm bump in Ground Clearance.

I have a city 2010 Auto CVT, had a question for you in terms of the mileage you are getting. I have read and heard claims about it giving 10+ in the city and 14+ on highway with sedate driving. Unfortunately in Pune i am getting 8.5 Kmpl in the city , have not driven on highway yet so can't say. I am on 195/60/R15 MC5 continental tyres currently. So i understand there would be a drop in mileage of around 0.5 to 1 KMPL. The air filter is clean, engine oil is good and air flter is clean. Is there anything i am missing here. This is my first experience of owning and driving a Honda City. Any inputs or pointers would be welcome.
