    Proper ad posted from Honda website...besides spoke to honda south, they claim they have received no official letter/notice regarding the 5% withholding tax so they cannot comment on it yet.. lets hope for the best...

    hi! I just bought the steermatic. I dont feel like going home anymore!!!

    great car....got the comfort of an auto but switch to steermatic mode and see the bad girl scream!! woo hooo!!

    Getting pretty decent milage considering its a 1.5 auto(12km/L) and i heard coz of the VTEC on the long route it gets really good....lokking forward to that!

    Wish it had ABS.....but i also believe ABS spoils braking habits of drivers so i guess its ok!!

    Great car....recommend it anyone! CHEERS!
    See no evil! hear no evil! do no evil!.....Overspeed?hell yeah!!!

    @u4usman4u:

    Since you're the most active member in this thread, mind telling me if your beloved Steermatic has even a single AirBag?

    How can you people brag about meters, interiors and stuff while neglecting such an important safety feature?

    Talking of performance numbers, a stock 1.6 manual Nissan Sunny can pull from 0-100 in 8.5 seconds. I have videos to back that up.

    Moreover, cars like Altis and new i-VTEC Civic can beat that 1.6 Sunny im talking about. Now, how does your Steermatic fares here?

    One bloke here talked that 1.3 i-DSi has the fastest accelerating in 1.3 class. LMFAO! its not even a 1.3 car and i've beaten 1.3 Cities many many times on a 1.3 Auto Lancer. Get your facts straight guys!

    Now don't get me wrong. I personally like 1.5 Steermatic ALOT. It is in a unique class with no direct rival. But you guys should know what you are talking about!

    Assalam alikum guys

    I'm also a Steermatic owner. Surely a lot of things you've all said are correct but not the acceleration. I also have a 98 city (manual). Both cars are on petrol. Till 100 the acceleration of both is same. It is after 100 that steermatic pulls away. Similarly the top speed is not that impressive either. The maximum this car did was 170 on super highway. The interior is great. I love this car but wished it had more oomph from the 1.5L vtec mill.

    tech_wiz: dude how can you compare a manual with an auto car....as for steermatic u have not seen it action yet, try to see the only video download of steermatic though against a 1.3 lancer manual and it will change you thinking.

    another dude wrote that steermatic can go to 170 only, i dont agree coz the car does 140 in a flash and i have done more on my previous 1.3 city iDSI on CNG

    Try Steermatic is S mode and you will know what it is capable of. The totally stepless transmission works like a miracle. Still remember it is an auto car but still packs a mean punch!!!

    Besides how can 1.6 sunny do 0-100 in 8.5 whereas the Civic 1.8iVTEC DOHC and Altis 1.8 DOHC have the same timings, i think the sunny's timings are exaggerated

    Lets not get into the argument that iDSI is 1.3 or 1.2. I previously owned one and it is primarily designed for economy. Its pickup is more like a diesel car, initial sucks but at higher RPMs it's pretty impressive and top end is great Believe me I have done 185 on motorway with CNG+AC and 5 people of board and the car could still go a bit further.

    I am really surprised by the claim that steermatic can do only 170 (dude get your car checked with Honda).

    How many low budget cars do u know that give U the superb driving pleasure of an auto car (CVT rokx) and kick of a manual (7 speed mode)??

    u4usman4u and GLI: got any nice comments to add???

    @techwiz

    I mentioned automatic SUNNY. And when comparing to STEERMATIC it lost.

    And if u r talking about AIRBAG and ABS, obviously STEERMATIC doesn't belongs to the class of 1.8L also price difference is there so these things remains there.

    This car actually enables the driver for extreme entertainment.

    Assalam Alekum All,very well said and defined u4usman4u and retrogade bro.

    i have personally done more than 170 on my steermatic it rocks.as far as the air bags are concern i had owned corolla 1.6 se saloon and was involved in an accident near peshawar damm air bag didnt open GOD save me not the air bag.

    steermatic is a ride to enjoy in 1.5ltr class, know nothing abt idsi but if its honda than must be good.

    also like to add just one more thing,personally have driven many cars in uk and various parts of the world, found not all cars have air bags,just wear my seat belts and thats it.

    @saadu bro good to hear u r enjoying the ride its sure is enjoyable. try to replace tyres with good brand japaness tyres. u will sure INSHA ALLAH will enjoy good braking too.

    take care all and drive safe.
    Help others so that u can be Helped

    @archon2001

    Breaking is fine...but do i need to change the tyres? They gave me Bridgestone Potenza tyres as stock with 15" Alloys. Dont need to change that do i?

    Yeah the ride is great. I m luvin it!!!!

    @all

    the idsi is good with manual the idsi - vario is sluggish tho...doesnt seem to want to run or something until u change to S mode.

    The pick in the VTEC Steermatic is great. It depends on the driver really. Push it beyond 2.8 on the tacho and wait for the VTEC to show what its made off. Good fun.

    The Sunny is good. Wish they called it something else...i mean Sunny... Although i think the 8.5 sec 0-100 below is a bit far i think 10 sec something is more realistic.

    Personally i think Honda has good build quality here in pakistan compared to others so that always feels good. I think some of the more experienced members need to analyze the steermatic with the sunny.....dont think the sunny would be better other than coz its imported.

    Hey I dont get the Steermatic system, I know it sounds naive of me, but still , I wanna know what the buttons on the wheel do & how you switch between auto & manual trans (if do-able). Will someone please take 3 minutes out and explain this concept and engineering, -- thanks.!

    O yea one other thing, I have heard the Bridgestone B390 & Bridgestone Potenzas being Honda fitted into Civics & Steermatics are "bad". Is this true - means if I buy a Civic 07 or a 1.5 City, will I "be forced" to change tires like I was for my Altis..?
