Thanks outdoor...this will be informed again to service. I will make sure that this is rectified.

Does Honda specify the duration of running-in for a new car? Either by kilometer or months? Like, 1000 kms, 5000 kms, 1 months, 3 months or something like that?

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.

If any one has completed their 10k service kindly post the bill here so we can get a fair idea of the things done.
Thanks.

He has had the car for a month now and he feels the car has had a rough ride ever since he bought it. Definitely a bad sign considering the beautifully contoured roads of mumbai in the rain

This is mainly due to the reworked and stiffer suspension. I had a test drive of the car yesterday and since the rains have created bad roads, the car seems to be a whole lot rougher to drive

I have heard such issues crop up during monsoon. But nevertheless, unexpected on Honda's part.

I booked a VX-CVT variant with Magnum Honda, Bangalore on 12th April with the Sales Contract indicating tentative delivery in October. The Sales Consultant orally assured that delivery should be possible in September but outer limit would be October. Even though I had been following the launch and wanted to book earlier I waited as I wanted delivery post April and was under the mistaken delusion that there would not be many bookings for the top variant.

I want to check with other BHPians if anybody else is in the same boat. The current news that there will be no production of the City during August due to Honda shifting production to its Rajasthan plant will cause further delays! However I will not cancel as I currently own a City and would not think of changing.

Would appreciate hearing the views of other gurus.

My SV-iDTEC has arrived on 3rd and will be registered on 11th. Sales Coordinator has told me that it takes a week to register here in Chennai as against 3 days last month due to some change in RTO formalities. Hoping to to First PDI on 11th morning before registration and planning to take the delivery by 13th.

Have purchased a Blaupunkt Sandiego 530 with Navigation to replace the OEM Audio (with the approval of ASS only :)). Planning for a reverse Cam integration to it.

Talks have been on in our Forum that there might be a temporary halt in the production of New City. It is now confirmed.
