I did alignment at Honda SC. Before and after also I still feel the same. I don't think I could have done anything more.

Feels strange to me. Did you try seeking advice from tyre shops with alignment sifu? I'm 100% sure my ride doesn't drift or require periodic driver intervention on any road I drive on.

Harlo Sifus... looking at your replies, made me question myself, how low is city drive?

Parlimen - putrajaya (work)

Balakong - Putrajaya (house to offfice)

Leisure driving (normal at any time)

I thought 90-110 is the minimum? Lesser than that, would be contributing to the traffic congestion.

inb4 will try the fuelly app.

Ur definition of city drive is very different. Haha. To me city drive is those drives/routes that have lots of stop and go either due to traffic jams or many traffic lights

110 kmph is considered minimum? Oh wait, I see you are government staff. Now I understand. Speed limits don't apply I guess.

Anyways, I see ur routes mostly involves highway travel and you mentioned using MEX. Other than peak periods on MEX where congestion is for the whole distance (if you travel 6pm onwards from Putrajaya to KL, you will understand), I don't see how ur FC will suffer except for ur overspeeding. I don't want to assume but I would hazard a guess you also frequently cilok other cars as well as hard braking and hard accelerating too? In that case, I suggest better for you turn OFF ECON mode. All these fast and furious moves will not help to better FC in ECON mode. If ur driving style requires fast response, better to turn OFF ECON.

Just my opinion that's all. icon_rolleyes.gif

If someone says yes, another says no, who would you believe? Perhaps the SC people will be in a better position to answer.

Okay. Well, sorry to say this is quite common for this gen City. Some would say this is a defect because there are cars with much smaller or no gaps at all but on the overall this gap exist to some degree of severity. Mine too had this gap and I can see the clip if I shine light thru it. I see many gen 6 Cities as well have this and I can conclude this is a product defect.

The bumper design have insufficient screw clips at the edges to hold it in place, especially when the bumper plastic is warping (this is normal). Why insufficient? Likely due to computer CAD design of City didn't take this warping into account, and also cost cutting by reducing proper holders.

Some may accept this and some others might tell you not to accept this flaw. You can ask SC to fix it but they may risk further misalignment and paint damages, so caveat emptor. But what do I know, I'm just a dumb guy who can accept the world is not perfect and can accept flaws when there's a logical reason.

No. It drives the same b4 and after alignment by SC. Anyways next tyre rotation onwards I will bring it to my tyre pomen so for me this is something temporary (perhaps!) and a good benchmark if my tyre pomen can rectify the issue.

Mine too doesn't have the tightest gap. The boot lid is even worse on the left and right of number plate.

From my experience, this is exactly one of the issues to correct when we send the car for alignment checking.
I'd get it checked asap since it might affect tyre wear, and surely it cannot be a pleasant way to drive.

Working with big boss.

Have to arrive before him. When he leaves for another meeeting, leave after him but have to arrive before or at the same time.

Tell me how to compensate la?

Even kena ticket also have to pay on my own.

Currently dilligently following a forumer advise to only swutch on ECON when idling or stuck in traffic.

Currently switching to caltex. I read that it gives more mileage as compared to others. BHP is a rarity.

Wah, sifu upgrading your mcintosh to this one? Share you experience with us.
Yeah, sifu is very poisonous. Haha, you only got a pair last time right? Time to get another pair now, high grade one.
I just bought Techron Concentrated Plus on Sunday. I thought this will help clean the engine and not much fuel saving?

maybe will take 1 pair for testing... in fact I also not expert in sound system, but supplier say this one much better icon_idea.gif

Well, not really that I'm fine with it. As I said it is quite annoying. Just that this is a much newer car than those I used to drive and its the 1st Honda I drove, and apparently there's a logic to that abnormality, so I can still accept this.

Furthermore no one has complained about it until now so I consider it as "normal condition". If I want to complain about the steering, it is the lifeless feel and no feedback hence difficulty for me to accurately point the car where I want it to be, hard to judge on the steering which caused me to kerb the wheel a couple of times in tight junctions.

But how is ur car, do you feel the same effects as me & yeowwwai & gsan?

if im remember correctly, mine one dont have such symptom during first 3 months until I changed to hrv steering previously
