    It's surprising to read that Retro is planning to leave then I read the whole story. Anyway hope that you all are doing well. Retro, if you planning to leave for a short while then I won't recommend you to sell you ride because by the time you'll come back, VTi Oriel would be 2.1 million and City A/T would be 1.6 million. Hence you will easily you ride for 1.2 million after your return.




    Yaar, so far as the strange behavior that you've mentioned, I also experience it sometimes especially after I got 20K km service done. And this is usually there when the a/c is open. Hope to address this issue at the 30k km service.

    Ok guys...thanx to amir bhai(@retrograde) today i checked this steermatic beauty for the first time...

    about a year ago,i nd amir bhai were in contact through fone,mails nd pw etc...amir bhai always used to say that whenever u come to isb,do meet me nd i ll show u wat steermatic has got...yesterday we got a chance to meet up for the 1st time...so i went to meet him...

    we had a nice chit chat for an hour or so,but amir bhai didnt had his car so i couldnt check it...today we met up again...nd got strieght to work
    as soon as i sat in,the 1st thing i loved the optitrom meter...its brighter nd more easily readable as compared to my idsi's....then the drive...amir bhai demonstrated the modes nd use of the buttons etc...as i dont know much about auto cars...nd to b honest,i wasnt a big fan of auto...but this one made me change my mind...the acceleration was phenominal....i was astonished to see wat a serious horse the L15 vtec engine packs in...it reaches 130-140km/h in no time...the way gears(although there r no gears) behave is also very complex nd advanced ...just after the roll on,the car behaves like a manual...does perfect shifting in a specific mode,perfect for racing...nd in one mode it did something i never though was possible,the rpm stuck on 6000,nd the car is still picking up speed...how is this done? may b amir bhai can explain better....

    the bottom line is that this car was much more then my expectations....specially the acceleration.steermatic kicks a$$ of an exi nd vti pros easily...nd i hope it can give a real tough time to 05 vti manual too...

    its a pity that not many ppl bought it nd honda guys had to stop production it doesnt go well wid cng,or else i wud hav got it right away...

    Anyways,in the end...

    A BIG BIG THANKS to Amir bhai for all this...he made my day now im an even bigger steermatic fan then ever bofore.....

    the bottons on the steering wheel felt smooth...i used to think they wud b hard nd wud need some pressure to press,but just by looking at them,i can tell now that they r soft nd they r on both sides of the steering wheel so that u can shift easily if one hand is busy wid power windows or mp3 player etc...

    other then the qualities of the car,the car is really really well kept(Y) mashallah very very clean inside nd out...
    i loved the rimz of the car nd didnt found the ride to b as hard as i had expected...nd yes,one BIG thing... NO RATTLES FROM ANY PART OF DASHBOARD/DOORS.... which means its the rough roads which makes my cars' dashboard so rattle-happy ...nd the quality of it isnt to b blamed,bcuz both cars r of the same age....3yrs...

    this was my experience of the car,there r some other things too which im forgetting ryt now jaisy he yaad aengi i ll b back wid another annoyingly long post

    lol!!! bro you certainly have a way with words. It was indeed a pleasure to meet you and Inshallah we will be frequently meeting again. I am happy that you liked steermatic and if u hd told me that u wanna take pics, i would have posed nicely for the pic - anyway nicely taken shows my ride on 140 probably in a small stretch of road.

    steermatic was the only City that I ever considered buying. Awesome machine. I just wished the chassis was better balanced, the suspension was a bit more comfortable and the interior quality was a bit better..

    yes Ahmad thats the way Steermatic is

    This country is strange country steermatic sold under invoice in her last days & eventually died a painful death by the hands of so called knowledge buyers

    Its 1 & only type of Pakistan jewel which we can not recognized & Honda stop making this technology.

    As it only came in 2006-2007 no other local car match it regarding its sophisticated mechanism & sensing abilities but alas its no more available.

    Ahmed bhai it was nice to read that you enjoyed the ride in Retro's steermatic. If you ever happen to come to Karachi then I'll be more than happy to show you my ride as well..... Believe me for someone who has driven manual and conventional autos, CVT is a totally different experience. You know, no jerks, no gear shifts ... just constant acceleration..
