I love my Honda City
Radiator hose and front driver side wheel bearing replaced within first 6 months.
Brake booster, master cylinder, handbrake cable, rear brake drum replaced at 39000ks (approx.).
Water pump, thermostat replaced after 1 year.
Timing belt, tensioner, oil seal replaced at 40000ks.
Minor oil leaking from head gasket since I bought it.
Seats wear badly.
Small leak from rear shocks.
Don't get freaked out with the items replaced.
I can say it's actually not too bad for a 23 years old car. And I think it's because the previous owner didn't take good care with the little car.
Bought this with $1.2k, and after spending another $1.5k on maintenance, my was City back to life, and gives me lots of fun to drive.
With the 1.2L engine, it accelerates fast from 0-60km/h, which is lots of fun.
However, without air-con is not really that fun in summer.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
