Pros : Point n Shoot, Amazing pickup (for its class), Looks, Mileage, Space and driving comfort

Cons : Not enough ground clearance for indian roads. Thats ALL!!!

I own a City 1.5VMT.. The car is superb best in its class and at price range... Great Powertrain, super handling, comfortable seats 5 ppl and I like to say this Point and shoot... 2 complains will be 1 major ground clearance isn't suitable for town roads; when at full load capacity the under carriage tends to kiss and make with all speed bumps it finds; try to cross bumpers even in any style doesn't help... Really tears a hole in the heart when you hear the scratching sound...

2nd minor issue; the sound system: Yes I like the integrated sound system, but I not able to get a commercial cd player installed... The player offered by Honda that's compatible is priced too high and also feature available are limited... What about playing movies and all.. Hope they come with solution for the latter problem atleast.. Meanwhile when I cross Bumpers or big crater sized pot holes I will have some of my passengers alight to avoid scratching of the under carriage :)

    I totally agree !!! the low ground clearance is a big issue. how do we fix it ?

    I have heard that if you can increase the wheel size from the normal factory fitted ; we can have some additional ground clearance but I think that it would be best to wait till the current set of tyres are worn out and then will go in for taller tyres. Also I have seen (on the internet) users in Australia and Malaysia using 16 inch alloy wheels instead of the standard 15 inch...So you have to end up paying extra for alloy wheels and new set of tyres. I don??t know if this is recommended but will advice you to take suggestions for service centers or an automobile professional before implementation of such modifications...
