    Default New City iVTEC 2016 Driving Tips

    Just got a new Honda City. Any idea on the gear shifts till 1000 kms and after that to prolonged life?

    I have done 300 kms, I usually change the gear at 1.5 RMP or 2.0 RPM max with steady acceleration and braking. The car is giving an average of 15.3 as per the meter.

    Thanks in advance !

    Don't change gears at 1.5 or 2 rpm, change it at 3 rpm because I have heard that changing gears at 2 rpm and then accelerating the car can be harmful for your engine. Other than this be careful while crossing the speed breakers as sometime your car can get hit from beneath with speed breaker. Don't accelerate the car really hard for at least 1000 km.

    I must say that Rabeel has explained it in a very brief and interesting way.

    Pediatricians!! IS the OP a doctor or did he mention driving his car inside a hospital? Please check before you type, it might get you into trouble

    Drive responsibly, within speed limits. Change all fluids & filters on time. Take care of your car and it will take care of you, abuse it and it will bite back!

    Just avoid bikers, two bikeridiots scracthed both sides of my bumper at the same time and kept going. -_- its only 3 weeks old. Other than that, there is nothing too special, compared to corolla you need to put it in lower gears when slowing down, while corolla can be pushed in 3rd gear :') not recommended though.
