Lack of grunt when you need it especially with 4 adults on board and on gradient, high road noise and drown the radio sound
Lack of water bottle space and the dash does not attract , no useful features
Did not ancounter any breakdown , Honda reliability , fair fuel consumption on overall driving, 9 litre per 100 km.
Horrible Infotainment System
Don't allow the marketing of the Infotainment system to sway your opinion in purchasing this vehicle. The system is HORRIBLE. When you get past the bundle of cables required to connect, you have to download an app from the Apple App Store - have a look at all of the 1-Star reviews and comments on this app. It doesn't allow you to use your native Apple apps (iTunes, Maps, etc...) instead it has its own apps which are just crap. It has a GPS app, but it will cost you $120.00 to unlock it, or it dies in 7 days.
Just a rubbish system that Honda has ignored.

Lots going for it but not without faults
Drives well. Handling is good for a small car. Reasonably quite. Economical. Some very good design features - large boot, excellent back seat room, reversing camera, good seats. Some not so good features - back window not so good for vision, limited leg room in front seats. Reliability so far good, but only done 20,000 klm. Servicing every 6 months is a bit over the top this day and age. DId have a shudder in the front brakes on steep decline at 80 klm per hour. Seems to have improved (may have picked up a rock).
The most disappointing aspect ...
Very sleek and good looking
Honda City drives so smoothly and quietly on the road and feels light to maneuvre. It has an excellent body contour , comfortable leg room, and quality interior fittings that makes it look so luxurious. It's also very economical on petrol. One problem is the use of a smaller sized battery which could go flat in a shorter time than normal if you accidentally leave the light on inside the car. Also, the contour of the car makes it quite difficult to safely check for oncoming cars when changing lanes to the left side of the road.
