    @gogadrum, thanks bro! Lol, I like the corolla tag!
    If you have a choice between an XLi and a Steermatic or even an iDS-i, just close your eyes and choose the City! Like seriously! Cheers dude!

    I don't think so.

    But it is recommendation in the MANUAL of the car to go for STEERMATIC in S mode. Thats why S mode is present in this car only.

    Actually i was mentioning earlier that if one wants to RUN his car manually from START, then he simply hav to put it in S mode.

    i also wanna mention that:

    1. The power steering is electronic and not hydraulic as in all other cars

    2. There are 2 glove compartments in each side of the rear seat as well.

    There r some other factors also where this CAR is a REAL GOOD.

    I would also like to mention here that STEERMATIC has also got NO HUMP in the middle for the COVENIENCE of FOOT REST of REAR SEAT PASSENGERS.

    isn't it ???

    All other CARS excluding HONDAs in PAKISTAN got this HUMP at the REAR.

    There is clearly no doubt that the City is the best car around "in its class".

    STRENGTHS
    - Great Value for money if you compare it with other cars within the same price range. For example, Corolla XLi has nothing to offer except the Corolla engine.

    - Great resale value

    - Excellent engine performance for its displacement, smooth & responsive acceleration

    - Very comfortable drive, for the driver as well as the passengers

    - The only car around with Steermatic (Tiptronic).

    WEAKNESSES

    - Poor design and shaping, though slight improvement from the earlier look. The 2001 was a simple but better looking shape.

    - Seats are not that great

    OVERALL - Weaknesses can be compromised for its strengths.

    @Car Pool

    I don't agree with u about the shape.

    U did mention POOR DESIGN & SHAPE. Also u mentioned about the SEATS. U should then prove this statement aswell ???

    For me shape is very MATURE and GOOD. And i find very COMFORTABLE SEATS aswell.

    Just look at say SIDE MIRRORS. They r REAL KOOL.

    HONDA put some good effort before designing this car.

    But i also agrees that every one has different taste.

    I am also proud owner of CITY STEERMATIC.I bought in march 2006 and so far i m driving it on petrol and its giving me no problem at all.
    Now I am thinking of installing CNG,so anybody who had installed cng could give feedback on merits and demerits of cng.
    I hope someone advice me as early as possible.

    u4usman4u: No bro, City has the hump but the civic has flat floor (no hump). Anyway that really does not bother me much. As for it's shape u know it now resembles the previous civic at least from the front side.

    Honda people have taken care of the objections people had with the previous city's shape. Since I used to own an iDSL manual (200 model), i can clearly see the difference.

    I believe CNG will work well with lambda sensor. As far as I am concerend, I can live on petrol for the time being, car is giving me 10 to 11 km/ltr within Islamabad.

    Yes. It has HUMP and a short too. But it is not that AWFUL that u can find in other cars in this price range.

    Actually its short HUMP is u can say STRAIGHT. So that the passenger finds himself easy to sit.

    isn't it ???

    Good Good!

    But anyone who has driven a Lancer or Sunny will testify that City Steermatic's drive is absolutely rubbish compared to the former 2.

    Japan is Japan afterall!

    @outcast_83:

    Sarkar surely their QC is better but regardless of City Steermatic being local assembled, it is equally comparable with these cars. Just writing "Japan is Japan" is an inadeqate justification.

    Since the steermatic has the same chassis of honda City, i guess it will be as un-stable on high speed as my Honda city. The acceleration might be good, but who will control the car above 100 km.
