Krish posted a topic in Driving in IndiaHey guys this is second post in the forum. 3 months ownership report of my Golden Horse (PETROL). This is a pre owned car bought in 2014. My father bought it from his close friend as he was moving to Singapore. We clocked 24000 KM in 2 years and 3000 KM in 3 months. So this is based on my personal observations during these three months. I've done one long trip Hyderabad to Nellore 454 KM and geeting prepared for another trip to Vishakhapatanam by the end of this month. Coming to the point, The car never got an opportunity to hit a highway as the previous owner is mostly travelling out of country, it's in scratchless condition. This is the first long drive on my car. Nothing bad to say about this car, I cruised at 110 KMPH and felt nothing unsafe and could easily touch 140KMPH and the mileage is 15KMPL . At 140KMPH I was bit tensed and heard a lot of engine noise, Steering was slightly out of control, not at all smooth, The engine noise was that loud that I checked the gear I thought it was in low gear. Overall comfort is good no road noise even after 2 years[emoji3]. Coming to the features I liked the cruise control and sunroof a lot. cruise control was blessing for me during my trip and the Air Conditioner the touch system is the worst thing, every time I change the gear my fingers touch the panel and the modes change. Don't know why they've given that instead of something useful like the HUD, or sensing lights or wipers. The interior quality is nice and also the exterior quality. Leg room is excellent front and rear same with the boot I always keep my seat back still there is place in the rear for a medium sized person to sit comfortably for hours. No modifications done interior and exterior. likes: Looks Cruise Control Sunroof Crome Grill[emoji173] Alloys Tail lamps Space Seat Positioning and comfort Smoothness No Noise. Dislikes: Not many dislikes except the air conditioning panel. Sadly Honda City facelift is also getting the same one. This is my personal opinion and observation in 3 months compared to my Swift Dzire ZXI. Here are few pictures.
Just now coming from a TD to check new Honda Amaze. As most of the information, images & videos, driving experiences etc. are available in the internet/youtube, I will just put some otherwise ignored facts:- EXTERIOR: 1) Top variant is equipped with 15" rims wrapped in 175/65 section tyres. 2) However spare wheel is an inch smaller at 14 inch. God knows why they need to do that! 3) Talking about tyres, full plastic cladding at the front wheel arches. (at least on the top end, not sure about other variants). I Forgot about the rear one, sorry. 4) Comes with LED DRL but doen't get Projector headlamps. INTERIOR: 1) IRVM does not get auto-dimming function. 2) No spring-loaded grab handles are provided and none of them gets a coat hook 3) While amaze gets rear parking camera, but misses out on adaptive guidelines which indicate the path that the car is going to take (based on steering input) 4) No rear AC vent, but the AC is effective. At the rear, USB charger is provided 5) Passenger side request sensor is provided for convenience:thumbs up. 6) Sun visors are not great in design & feel. Driver-side unit does not even get a flap to hold tickets, while passenger side misses out vanity mirror lights 7) Glove box doesn't get illumination. 8 ) Cheap cost cutting: Tailgate does not get full black plastic cladding on the inside (full plastic cladding at the front wheel arches but no cladding here, god knows who decides all these!). The effect? ugly looking bare metal like this upon opening the boot: 9) All four door pockets can take 1 litre bottle 10) An armrest with two cup holders at the rear but rear seat doesn't get adjustable head rest! Talk about understanding the typical Indian mentality: who cares about whiplash injury when you can show off that armrest & cup holders!! Surely Honda understood us very well. 11) Power window console is good, One-touch up and down functionality has been provided only for the driver's window: 12) Speed sensitive locking is provided at around 15-20 Kmph speed. Cheers! Pralay
