    Default Honda city ivtec MT 2012

    Dear Experts

    I am new user of honda city ivtec MT 1.3, can you please guide me technical points of this car?Like
    1) does it have tappet adjustable or hydrolic?
    2) Why its clutch is too hard? i think it does not have clutch cable?
    3) does it has front wheel ABS or rear wheel?
    4) It has clutch operation oil... its new for me
    5) why its pick in low RPMS is low? i think its due to its ECU and its normal in city
    6) NASA carbo spray is suitable for its throtle ?

    AOA,

    check out the user manual for the car for these details!
    FYI: the car does need tappet adjustment but only at every 40k periodic maintenance.
    The car has a hydraulic clutch and sometimes the slave cylinder(transmission side) knuckle grease becomes dirty and thus the hardness otherwise the clutch operation is very smooth and the feel very soft.
    The ABS operates on all 4 wheels. and its way better than TOYOTA!
    The clutch oil is due to the hydraulic operation rather than a wire one.
    Yes, City does suffer from low pick majorly due to low torque available at the start but after that it turns in to a beast... and I've taken the car to 150+ on the 4th gear.
    Dont try to clean the throttle body at home because it has an Electronically controlled one. the calibrations will go hay wire and you'll experience rogue RPM values at idle. so get it cleaned from a dealership so that after that they car do the TP learning process using Honda Diagnostic System

    thankx alot... and you explained in a perfect way... really after 2.5+ rpm it becomes beast and i also took it to 170KM/H in 5th gear on motorway easily, brakes are really better than toyota, because in slow speeds the brakes response is normal and as i cross 100KM/H the brakes become more strong... can you send me link of its user mannual plz??

    How can brakes be better than Corolla, when City has drum brakes on rear wheels, and Corolla has all wheel disc brakes?

    Dear i have drive both toyota gli 2012 and city 2012, the differece i fell was:
    Toyota: there was no any difference in brake pedal working on low/high speed. and above 120km/h on applying brake car feels slipping may be due to its height from road.
    Honda: on low speed brake pedal become smooth and lose.. on high speed brake pedal automatically boosts and on applying brakes it feel like car is sticking to road, no any feeling of slip.
    Both cars were having stock Euro Star tires.

    I think brake performance more depends upon its mechanics instead of disk/drum etc

    this is only brake,,engine performance is another quality of honda.

    i was fan of corolla but one drive of city changed my choice
