    Default Honda City 2006 ?!?!

    Few days back me; tauseen123, SAABi and gem_guy went to dealerships of Chevrolet, Suzuki, Honda, World Automobiles ( for Nissan ) and to a few importers.

    {sorry guys no Pics for you all, we din't had a camera or a camera phone }


    We have quiet alot of conclusions about quiet alot of Cars and imports which I would like gem_guy and SAABi to start on this Topic and allow other members @ PakWheels.com to comment and give their views upon.





    The thing i want to state here is the New City(s) Engine.
    The engine code of it is L12A2 or something like this, I MEAN L12 is for Sure Confirm!! .... whereas The engine code of City which came Before the Fish Faced Models ( NO OFFENSE INTENDED, PLEASE ! ) had an engine coded 13A2. Which was 1300cc.




    The point here to note is that By the engine code of the new City we can Conclude it being a 1200cc engine RATHER THEN A 1300cc as CLAiMED by Honda PK!!!!!



    And maybe this is the very Same reason it has astonishingly Low Fuel consumtion as Compared to all other 1300cc's in iTs Class!!!!!




    I urge all the Technically sound members @ PakWheels.com to assisst us, all members, about the REAL Engine Displacement of the engine coded L12A2.

    atlas honda gets its CKD's and parts from thailand. and if u think honda will produce a special engine for pakistan with same A12 code, u r terribly wrong. it is a bluff because as per existing norms and mathematical logic 1251 and up to 1300 can be called 1300. honda has lied because pakistani market is a big buyer of 1.3 segment. 100cc less would have big psychological impact and it worked.

    so if that is the case, has anybody contacted honda atlas for a clarification on this? well...they might say its not a big issue...1246 is almost 1300

    i should point out that the merc 600 engine is in fact a 5.4 litre (V12) and the 55AMG engines are also 5.4 litres (V8). So if they can do it why can't honda????

    first of all no salesperson or even the supervisor are not educated and they have no explanation for this. the service manager informaly admitted this at another workshop.
    a lie is a lie, no matter how small and this car cannot be termed be as a 1.3 by industry practices. if merc is doing it, it does make it justified. also why is it called 1.2 in country of origin - thailand?

    This is something interesting.
    what does a Honda City customer have in mind while buying the car ?

    1) cant get a better car with better options then this in this price range?

    2) Honda City is famous for good fuel consumption

    So the peformance or technical freaks will never opt for a city anyways. its a four door fuel friendly car in reasonable price. Thats all people care about (majority).

    Youngsters interested in performance know the 2000-2001 model is the fastest in the 1300cc category anyways(no wonder its re-sale is still strong).

    But the awareness thing is neat (Y) we should know what we buy
    Life is short and very unpredictable just like a Quarter mile .....

    alrrite...

    now wat is mercedes doing.....they call their car MERCEDES S600 but they never say its a 6000cc car... they admit (or rather PUBLICISE) it as a 5.4 litre V8.... now this is the truth!!

    if honda was not bluffing... they cud name their car as CITY 13 but they shud publicise it as a true 1.2 litre car!!

    Gem Guy is right
    Honda Pakistan is lying on the specifications they provide to consumers.

    1246 cc... its a very decent car for uncles and aunties... ...

    in the 1300cc category it rocks.. xli has only one edge.. that its a corolla which sells better ....

    as far as the engine marketting is concerned.. it should hav been advertized as 1250 cc car... but that would have put off alot of ppl.. just for nuthing...

    if you want to have a 4 door decent saloon for 800,000..city is a good car
    Do the environment a favour, Use less airconditioning .. and please walk to the shop to get a pack of cigarretes..its only a 3 min walk..

    @ szuberi Bhai,
    L12A2 is what iT read!





    @ spectra Bhai,
    Very True, A lie is a Lie !

    Merc is not Lying to its customers, THEY CLEARLY STATE Their Cars Specifications To CUSTOMERS!!! whilst Honda PK hasn't done that !

    as gem_guy has clarified.





    @ hash Bhai,
    Yes indeed awareness is What we are trying to generate ova here, Nothing More! and Thank you for the Acknowledgement sir.






    @ tech_wiz,
    Your queries are being Rightly addressed by Spectra Bhai. Yes indeed i Called you a Lier BECAUSE you stated Citys Engine to be L13 Right !?!? while its not!!
    and If you Call that Abuse to you well i dun think so...... But on the Other Hand your Reply @ on July 3, 2006 at 10:50:30 PM was a a Direct abuse!!

    this infact is serious matter.. atlas honda could have lauched l13a city.. obviouslly they did it intentionally and installed l12a .. (ofcourse saving money and making people fool in pakistan)
    point is why didnt they come up with l13a in city.. ? its 1339 cc.. no big deal.. when liana can come with 1328 cc honda city could have come up with l13a!

    what you people think of companies like Honda? they might sell overpriced vehicle from your point of view but not to this extend.

    Example1: 1339 Jazz termed as 1.4 in UK
    Example II: the 13B would displace 2.6 liters BUT Mazda advertises the 13B as a 1.3 liter engine

    just google for car displacement and you would come to know more about it.

    other reasons include various goverment regulations, taxation and manufacturere can market likewise.

    The very easy way to check the displacement or CC is to remove any one spark plug, take piston on bottom position fill the cylinder with measured water (in Ltr) and we know 1 ltr of water means 1000 CC......:-) it looks joke but it is practical (dont do at home or with your own vehicle)....the other best way is to measure bore and stroke and get the displacement.
    IT IS NICE TO BE IMPORTANT, BUT IT IS MORE IMPORTANT TO BE NICE
