    Default Honda City 2009 (new shape) knocking/performance issues

    Dear Wheelers,

    I have read on a few posts that there is some software update for city 2010 that manages to resolve knocking/performance related problems on city 2009.

    Can someone please share the exact procedure and details of how to get this done? Are there any specific cars/units that are affected? & which honda service center do I proceed to in Lahore for this upgrade/inspection

    Hope to hear from you guys soon!

    Asim

    Well.....this is not knocking problem (as far as I know) but low pickup in 2nd gear.....particularly when you go down from 3rd - 4th gear to 2nd and then try to increase speed again....

    This problem was there in all units manufactured till end of August 2009 (i may be off by a couple of weeks). However, Honda Atlas managed to make appropriate changes to overcome the problem....in 4th QTR of 2009.

    I recommend that you contact Honda Atlas Customer Service department and have an appointment with their engineers who use to visit each dealership once a month....and whenever any engineer visits dealership near you...take your car for an upgrade....it will take not more than 10minutes....

    I did just that....early this year....and have been satisfied with the results...
