ANEES's review on Honda Amaze VX MT Diesel
Year of Manufacture : 2013 | Driven no. of Kms. : 40000
- Pros: Vehicle design make the interior spacious . Boot space is decently good to support a family with 2 +2. I purchased the vehicle for long distance drive .
- Cons: Lot of disadvantages 1. Interior makes lot of noise , Sound acoustics are not good , Engine noise is heard inside . Seating being moulded donot support additional accessories such as Tray table , Laptop table etc. , Intercooler in the engine sucks any medium and the vehicle is not suitable to drive at times when there is a good rain of 20- 30 cm . The vehicle engine stops and the intercooler sucks water and lets water enter the engine . Honda classifies as floor vehicle and makes you pay for the expenses.
Buyers please be cautious that there is a design flaw in the honda vehicle especially in Honda amaze diesel as I have the same vehicle . The vehicle when passing through the water on roads during rain on the Indian roads , The intercooler sucks water during running condition and lets water enter the engine through the airfilter and this is a design fault as the intercooler is kept low near the radiator and easily sucks water inside . On the rainly day at Hyderabad on the 31st August , my vehicle engine stopped while it was running condition and had sucessfully two time the water pool on the water , the third time the engine stopped while passing . I didnot crank the engine but still water has entered the engine through the intercooler while passing the water . Please be careful , Non of the insurance company , Honda warranty and the service dealer takes ownership . while this is purely a design fault of Honda vehicle . If someone can make me reach to technical representative of Honda motors , I can explain this flaw and help Honda correct its design deficiency .
