    Default Honda City 09-10 Tip

    Hi all,

    I Just wanted to share somethings I learned about maintaining Honda City 2009/2010 model. I just hope this would Help those using or thinking to buy this car.

    I bought my Honda city 2009 in July 2009 and sold it 2 weeks ago (upgraded to Civic Reborn 2010 prosematic). I kept my car with utmost care n respect. To get the best out of my city in terms of fuel economy and pick, these were the things I did:

    a. I always filled the tank with 50% high octane and 50% regular petrol which dramatically enhanced the performance and fuel economy of the car.
    b. I never filled the tank with 500 or 1000 fuel. Always full tank.
    c. Remember to fill your tank from a reliable fuel station with high grade petrol.
    d. I use to change my air filter every 8000kms. (manual says 20k - but every one knows about paki road conditions and pollution)
    d. Get your Honda City serviced from Honda 3s dealers and use geniune parts especially Honda engine oil.
    e. Plug Service at 10k and Brake service at 20k.
    f. Keep your interior n exterior always clean. Clean car gives a clean drive.

    Respect your vehicle and your vehicle will respect you. Trust me.

    By the time I sold my City, it had 26k on odo and smells like brand new. The condition of the car was still brand new and the new owner is happy .

    I hope the above tips helps. cheers to all city owners n happy riding.....

    original honda oil is plain caltex oil packed with honda label and quantity reduced from 4ltrs to 3.7 litrs.
    u can buy simple caltex 4 litrs cheaper and save 0.3 litrs actually

    ofcourse mixing hi octane will give better avg. but its not worth it. u pay more and get lesser benefit. mixing hi octan 50-50 is better in cars like city Vario which has pathetic knocking problem

    i would rather go to PSO behind Jinah market cause the owner has alot of fancy cars which get filled from there.cant go wrong wid that

    Rims on ur new ride are looking wicked ! Mashallah. Allah naseeb karay

    Thank you for the compliments

    nice advice, but it would have been more useful if your suggestion were economical and benefical,

    I mean if u spend freely then its no big deal to maintain and usually the geniune parts are very expensive and not much better than those available from open market

    Helpful tips and a well kept civic as well. I'm a proud owner of the new City. I use Honda oil and change it at 3000 kms (recommended is 5000 I think) or three months, which ever comes first. About servicing the plugs. I normally have the plugs cleaned every 3 months along with the oil change. Is it good practice or should I actually have them serviced at 10,000 kms. My usage is extremely low as I'm using it as a second car.

    When should I get the City electronically tuned? The Honda service guys told me there's no need for that unless you experience problems such as unstable RPM etc.
