I'm driving City VTEC and Accent 1.5A. To me Accent is more value for money. Overall package for the Accent is better.

jlwee, honestly, its the best car I've ever spend on. City (sorry chkwong) I read from an article, that its actually under power with high FC. That is why they had to 'lighten' the car a lot.
Those problems we post here are actually small problems which can be solved easily. So far, no major issues for Accent.

chkwong, still nobody wants to buy your City ar? why not just trade in for another Accent if not AtoZ? If you're interested, I can still introduce to the Manager of Atoz.

Hi chkwong,

I've probably missed your earlier messages. May I know why you would want to sell off your City? I thought it's a good car and one of the most fuel economical car around. How much are u selling it for? What year is it manufactured?

Rgds,
TKJ

Those City owners in the AW and mycityclub says my problems are not problems. They say it's a feature of Honda City. Har har har. Shocked

marky, ATOS PRIMA (prime) is in the ads already. Can you check with your fren at Jln 222 tat one, got car to see already or not? And the price also? Tq.

tkj, I already sent the car for ECU diagnosis, and there's nothing wrong with the car. So, it concludes that the car has couple of design overlook or feature as they say. My City VTEC is Apr-2005. Want good FC? Get a bike or Kelisa. The overall package counts, not just FC. Selling for less than 80k with Michelin Pilot Preceda 195/55/15 and V-Kool 70/Elite tinted all round. Still under 3yrs warranty and 2 yrs free maintenance.

I hear from the SA in Taipan USJ that the top speed is about 130-140km/h due to the light weight of the car... is that true...???

RoCkie;
When you sit in the car, what do you see on your speedometer? Max 140km/h or 200km/h? I have driven up to 190km/h from KLIA to USJ Exit (only stretch which is stright and 'smooth' road)
Best to test drive and lap the test car. Use M/T for that!!! hahahaha.
