2022 Honda City petrol MT: Observations after 2 back to back road trips

The highway to Gujarat (NH 48) is riddled with potholes and have to be extremely careful to not bottom her out. (Have not done that yet, fingers crossed).

BHPian Dieseltuned recently shared this with other enthusiasts.

A quick update from my side. I did 2 back to back trips from Mumbai to Gujarat over the last 10 days. Each round trip was approximately 550 to 650 kms. My odo currently stands in 3900 kms in less than 2 months of ownership.

Here are my observations:

  • The drive is very smooth and comfortable.
  • The stock 185 section tyres are doing well.
  • The highway to Gujarat (NH 48) is riddled with potholes and have to be extremely careful to not bottom her out. (Have not done that yet, fingers crossed).
  • Both my trips were during extremely heavy rains, when I say extremely heavy I mean RED alert issued by government kind of heavy, the headlights in such extreme situations seemed a little wanting. I could be happy with a tad more illumination on the road during such conditions. But, then such extreme conditions are rare.
  • The NH 48 does not have a proper median for most of the stretch (proper divider with plantation). This results in blinding lights from the vehicles on the opposite side. The ZX headlights also seemed a bit wanting in such a situation, with very poor illumination on my side of the road if faced with such blinding lights from the opposite vehicles. Is this a case only with the city or do all the cars have the same problem?
