Has anyone noticed another stuff related to rolling up rear power windows? If the (stock) music player is on, I can hear a squeaky noise when the rear power windows reach the top. The SA told it is present in many (all, according to him) VTec City's. He said it is something to do with a relay cut off. Hard to believe explanations.
Your SA is misleading you here. I have no such Issues in my car(though it is DTEC, door and window mechanism would be no different from VTEC). Also I remember someone having this same issue and on opening the door pad it was found that one of the metal parts was touching the window mechanism sue to which there was jerk in his front door window. Suggest please insist on the SA opening the door pad and checking the clearance for the window mechanism.

Am at currently 13K Kms and touchwood no issues as of now in my 6 months of ownership. Get the normal 3rd service done with oil change. Should be about 2.5 - 3K Rs for the service. Also my suggestion get only the alignment done from Honda. Balancing of tyres you can do outside (I did this).

Hope your friend got the tyre pressure checked post delivery. I had checked in my car immediately post delivery and tyre pressure was between 50 - 60 PSI (varying in each tyre). Have driven for 13K + KMS now on stock tyres/rims on varying conditions and I find it settled.
