    The honda quality is now a myth. The newer gen city is plagued with many issues hitherto unknown in earlier generation. The race to garner more customers than rivals with gimmicky features rather than good build and quality control and the added cost cutting is root cause of many a problem with the auto makers in general. Hope Honda garners more trust in the industry.
