Cars Q&A

Ive always fancied buying a Honda City 1.5 (2002-03). however since its 2009, i have been ill adviced to buy a second hand car. Recently i came across an ad for a Honda City 2002 model, 55000 kms at Rs. 275,000. Can you help me evaluate whether this would be a good buy? How long can i expect the honda city to run smoothly without becoming a maintenance nightmare? Thanks

Trust me. Honda City is a very good car. A 1.5 cc engine will not give you more than 12 km average but the performance is at par excellance. The sytle and look is never to be questioned. It gives the state of art look and feel. I too have a 2004 Very well maintained. If interested please call me on 09819512523. I wanna sell just to purchase a Civic.

honda city is a great car.i guess even if u use it for 1lac+ kms it should'nt be a problem.the price quoted is just a bit high,try and get the price till 2.40.check the suspension,the interiors,the engine,the paint and if everything is in order,then just go for it.

Honda City is never a maintenance nightmare, Its the best machine u can ever own. But yes, the price is bit high for a 2003 model, it should be around 2.3L to 2.45L depending on the condition of the vehicle, I suggest you get it checked by a professional and then buy

Very good choice, I bought a City 2001 for Rs.3.50 Lac in 2005, @ 80000 Kms done. So for it working nice and complited 1,25,000 Kms, still it may work for another 2,00,000 Kms.

Expert`s comment:

City is a good option and the quoting price is also quite good.Considering the good service by a City for atleast 10 to 15 years , it will be worthy of buying at mentioned price provided overall condition is good.

It is quite old 2002 model.Now they have done so many changes in the engine,suspension and etc.Spares will be costing more.
I advice you to go for new Honda city.The engine is too good.
