EI purchased new Honda City i-DTECH in January 2014. I was driving my car suddunly rain started my car passed through very shalow water air suction pipe sucked water because very low heigt and my car was hydrostatic locked and there is a white smoke coming out. And different service centres are giving me different estimates for my car, One of them is asking for Rs. 2.5 Lakh that too minimum (according to Ring Road Peera garhi)). You won't believe, they have same problem in Honda Amaze i.e. "air intake mouth for air filter is placed way below in Honda Amaze and its specific to Honda Amaze. In Brio and other models it is in its usual place. Due to this change in design, water gets into the engine of honda amaze very easily even during normal rains."

Not only this one of representative said don't drive in rainy season. Then what is the use of buying this car. I just wanted to ask one simple question. If I am with my family and 200 km away from my home, suddenly rain starts what should I do. Do I need to park the car there and wait until rain stops? Also It can happen again to my car, in that scenario should I pay again. And there is one more great news it doesn't come under warranty and no support from Insurance company. Please guys I need your support and fix it as soon as possible. My communication ID 1-1846270512 and my car is with Ring Road Gurgaon.LooksEngine
