2000 Honda City LXi Stock 1.3 PGMFi from Philippines
The Type Z is the best of all the Honda City models
Plastic radiator top cover has been damaged over time; replaced with a more durable copper variant.
Compressor replaced with a bigger version.
Steering wheel has a soft spot which should normally be hard.
I didn't really like her small voiced horns.
Power windows wear over time.
Manual adjust side mirror levers are not so durable.
Wiper motor is jerky sometimes.
I am satisfied with the performance considering it has a small 1.3 engine driven by automatic transmission without an overdrive, she still obeys if you know her timing.
Spare parts are readily available; you can choose where to buy your aftermarkets - either original or semi-original.
The engine bay has a clean layout and hidden parts can easily be accessed.
It has a spacious interior, considering that the car is within the compact class.
The stock dashboard illumination is great.
Overall the car is fun to drive; it's easy to work around tight corners, even with a stock suspension.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
