    Default Honda city manual transmission - hard gearshift

    Dear all

    I got a Honda city 1.3 manual transmission in march. I have driven 5000km. Since beginning the gear shifting is hard, specifically the shifting back and forth between 1st and 2nd gear and down from 3rd to 2nd gear is hard. It feels like I have to push against some obstacle to shift gears. I complained to Honda dealer Honda south in Karachi after 1000km. The first two times I sent car, they just did road test and said there is no problem. The third time, I took the car they kept the car for 3 hours. They said that they bled the clutch and it should now be ok.
    I still feel that shifting in 1st and 2nd gear is hard. I have driven local assembled manual Suzuki and Toyota cars and feel that Honda city gearshifting feels abnormal.
    I would like to know the experience of other Honda city users.

    Default 1st gear springs out

    an addition in my observations, sometimes when in first gear, when I shift to second, the gearshift springs out of place. I noted that first gear is very hard and difficult to shift to and from. I also note that the car is knocking in first gear and very poor pickup in first gear.
    I would appreciate any comments from Honda city users or experts.

    Tell them to adjust the selector correctly - if they fail to repair this write to AH motorcars and tell them that they need to repair their faulty unit.

    Hi Xulfiqar

    thanks for your reply. Though its been a while but hope you can respond again. I try to explain the problem to Honda South but they dont seem to want to understand it. Each time they go for a test drive and say there is no problem in car. I even mentioned and asked them to check the selector but they are not willing to even take the car into workshop for checking it. Just do test drive and say we will contact Honda and ask for their second opinion. Now I have had this car for nearly a year and drove 16000km. Car has very poor pickup on slopes. Cant drive it up a slope without it turning off once. from 1st to 2nd gear, sometimes it shifts with a jerk like a jumping out feeling.
    I dont know if this is just a driver comfort problem or a problem that can turn into breakdown or major problem.

    I.have a 2009 model. I also experienced the same problem. The Honda guys outrightly rejected anything wrong with my vehicle. I then went for a manual transmission oil change and voila! The hard gear grinding problem was gone. I had the oil changed when the car had accumulated roughly 10,000 kms. Since then, no problems!
