    Default Honda City Fan Club

    (Maintainence schedule added at the end)

    Hi guys..!!! I thought we should have a Fan club for honda city.Theres already a fourm for City but thats dedicated to city steermatic only.in this club,we shall hav steermatic,idsi,cvt nd all models of city and all their variants. Well the history of this car is somewhat like this...


    First generation (1997-2000) On january 22nd 1997,the first Honda City was launched as a sedan.The city was always made for families and not for racing or sports.Thats why they were always equiped with the latest or sometimes firsts in the market.The interior was always very comforting and the seating position is also very comfortable.It had the options of power windows,and side view mirrors for the top model though they were not there in the base model.Power steeing,front seatbelts,digital clock,AC was available in the basic model too.One the outside,it was very elegantly designed.Beautiful,handsome and decent.Under the hood,it had a 1300cc 16valve SOHC engine ,and was the first car to have 16-valve in 1300cc category.


    Second generation (2000-2003) On January 20th 2000, Honda replaced the original City of 1997 with an update.This model of city had the basic shape of its predecessor.but with new crystal head lamps at the front,power side view mirrors and a chrome lining around the rear numberplate garnish.It was the first car in pakistan to have rear crystal headlights.It had two varients. Exi and Exi-s.The Exi had manual windows and side view mirrors,body colored licence plate garnish(not chromed), semi-fabric seat covers, 165/13 tyres,black door mirrors and no high mount stop lamp.But the Exi-s had all these things in it.The outside looked more gracefull with crystal lights and some new lines on the exterior.The engine in both of them were same.But this one had Programed fuel injection(PGM-Fi).There was optional 4-speed automatic transmission available. The engine engine's maximum horse power=90/6400 and maximum torque =11.5/4700 This model was produced until 2003

    Third generation (2003-2005) On 23rd August 2003, the third-generation Honda City was launched which had a totally new shape.It was a very stylish and aerodynamic shape introduced in pakistan for the first time.It also was the first car to introduce i-dsi (intelligence-dual and sequential ignation) and CVT (continuously variable transmission) in Pakistan.It had an engine which is higly fuel economic and was build specially for better fuel economy.This car was equipped with power windows(pinch free) , power side view mirrors, tilt adjustable steering column and yet another first,the EPS or electriconic power steering.it made the steering very very soft to turn and also it had no oil used in it so it had no maintanence required.Other featrure of this car is that its the first Euro 3 comliant car in pakistan,that means that its very low on harmful emmisions.The EURO 3 emission standard are applicable in Europe from the year 2000, they are considered to be amongst the most strict standards worldwide. The standard limits emissions to 2.1 g/kWh CO, 0.66 g/kWh HC, 5.0 g/kWh NOx, 0.1 g/kWh particles. Another striking feature is, the boot space(400ltrs).it was bigger then any local car availabe at that time.This car was basically meant for families.it had two glove compartments,a big boot,empty space under the rear seats, four glass holders,and also, a smal space provided in the two front doors.And guess what? All of these options were available in the basic version.This city was divided on just the basis of the drive-train.One was manual,and other was automatic. On the outside,this car was designed very sophisticatedly,it looked smaller than other cars in size from outside but is alot more spacious inside.the body design was an immediate hit among fans and poeple who knew somthing about this type of things.Even the side view mirrors are designed to cut through air.

    Fourth generation (2005-present) In september 2005,the fourth generation City was released.It was basically a face-lifted version on the previous model.it is known as the City ZX in Thailand, India, the New City in Malaysia and City in Pakistan.The most significant changes are a new exterior (new front grille, new headlamps, new fog lights, newtaillights and bumpers). The front end has been extended forward by 65 mm (2.6 in) while the rear has been extended by 15 mm (0.6 in). The VTEC trim have 15 inch alloy wheels as standard equipment. Interior changes are minor but it does include an armrest for the driver.The rest remains almost same as in the previous model. The engine remains the same but the intake manifold has been modified, resulting a 10% temperature drop in the intake air temperature (IAT), the suspension has been upgraded as well. Honda City in Pakistan are using CVT gearbox for both i-DSI and VTEC variants. The CVT-VTEC 1.5L gearbox is equipped with a Simulated 7-Speed Automated Manual Transmission (AMT) using paddle shift buttons. This is very rare for a subcompact of its class.This VTEC variant was called City-steermatic.

    Honda City Fan Club -214737



    Steermatic:- The steermatic is basicaly a name of a technology used in the city VTEC 1.5L model.this model had a different engine than the idsi.it had a 1.5L engine with an auto transmission.this was not any other auto transmission.its is steermatic,means that you can change gears just by push of a button on the steering wheel.this is basically used in F1 racing.It has 2 options,either you drive on fully automated CVT option,or you select a virtual manual transmission.For this,you would change the gears when you want with a push of a button.This model also have an opitiron meter and also stock imported 15" alloy rims with bridgestone Potenza tyres. This technology is very sophisticated and advanced,which,sadly was'nt accepted by the buyers in Pakistan because they simply could not understand it and hence,this particular model of city was discontined.


    I-dsi:- I-dsi stands for Intelligence-dual and sequential ignation.In this type of engine,two spark plugs are employed for each cylinder.That makes 8 spark plugs instead of 4 plugs used by most cars.Adding of an additional plug assures complete burning and utilizing the last drop of fuel thrown into the cylinders which would provide you the best performace and better fuel consumption.Not all the times the 8 plugs are working,but when u push your car through high revs or speeds,all of them work simeltaneously and thats when ypu can feel the difference.But theres one drawback in it,this engine is equiped with 8 valves not 16.Hence it decreased the performance and city seems to be out of breath after 5000RPMs,but as this is basically a family car,performance is not the priority.The best thing about this was the fuel economy,about which,you can read the paragraph below.

    Fifth generation (2009 onwards) On 31th january 2009,the fifth generation of the honda City was launched in Pakistan.Which was an immediate hit among the fans.The previous Honda City was criticised due to its shape,but this time the best thing was the shape,which is even more aerodynamic then the previous one and also resembles the big Honda brothers,Civic and Accord.The best thing about the exterior of this City is the front view of the car.The wide,sleek and elegently designed radiator grill gives a refreashing look to the car.The dimesions of the car are almost similar to those of the older model.The sharp lines on the hood gives the city some attitude on the road.The boot space is increased about 25%,from 400ltrs to 506ltrs.But the good news doesnt end there,under the hood,There is a fairly powerful 1.3L SOHC VTEC engine.which produces a healthy 100bhp,enough for a 1.3L car.But dont think that you would have to lose something on the fuel economy side to get this sort of power.The fuel economy is actually improved.Some indian car expert magzines gave the figures of 22km/ltr for the auto transmission,which is the best in its class.The emission standards are improved as well.Previous city was Euro 3 compliant,but the new city is Euro 4 compliant.which means that your car is enviornment friendly.The only thing which you need to be concered about is the interior,which feels abit cramped campared to the previous City,but there is a reason to it.In the pervious city.the hood and the trunk had only a small portion of the exterior length covered,and the cabin was much bigger,which gave nice interior space,but from outside,the car looked ugly to some eyes.To correct this ugliness,the car was redesigned with increased hood and trunk length from outside,this made it look much better but the drawback was the lesser interior space.The second thing was the missing silver portions on the interior bits and panels of the Pakistani City.The interior would have felt lively only if some spots of it would have been in silver color.But you have alot other advantages,like 15" rims,ABS as standard,vtec engine,details of fuel milage on a special screen in the speedometer,huge boot and many other small things. In a nutshel,the new Honda City is much more refined comparitively to the previous one.The basic things which matter alot have been improved like the engine and the exterior design.The ride of the car is also improved,thanks to the small changes in the suspension.All in all,its still a great package if you see it the value-for-money way in Pakistani market atleast.

    Fuel Consumption:- The 2005 face-lifted Honda City i-DSI achieved an impressive 26.2km per liter of fuel consumption during a challenge in June 2007. The challenge requires the vehicle to be occupied by 4 persons (including the driver), air conditioning being switched on and a load of luggage. The whole route stretched more than 660km that consists of not only highway driving but also hill climbing. ==================================== Source:-My self mostly,wikipedia and Honda atlas.


    In Short:- In short,according to me,all this proves that Honda City has been a great car for a family to have at all times for more than a decade now.It has proven its self to be a complete car one would need at a price tag it is available for.An im one of the thousands of satisfied owners of it for the past one year. Now all we need are your comments and thoughts upon this small wonder.And also do make sure you post some pix of your own city if you have,of any model.Please feel free to express your feelings about this car.

    Maintainence schedule:-

    There have been a lot of queries regarding the maintainence shedule of Honda City. To help find members and guests find this information easily and quickly, i am writing the complete maintainence shedule which i have been following for the past 5 years for my car (180,000kms).Cost of completing the job may/may not be stated. Some of it may not be the same as that in maintainence book provided by Honda people. In that case, i ll state the reason of the difference.Here goes.

    Oils:-
    Havoline formula 10W30 (3.7ltr) and oil filter change @ 3000kms. Cost 1900rs

    Transmission oil (Manual transmission) 2 ltr @ 40,000kms.
    Honda original oil 1980rs (2ltr)
    Good quality Zic/ micking oil 800rs (2ltr)

    Transmission oil ( Automatic transmission) 2lre @ 35,000kms
    Honda CVT oil ONLY (3.2-3.4L.) 1980rs

    Brake oil
    Keep it topped up and change only if padel feels very soft n goes wayy down.
    Honda original oil

    Clutch operation oil
    Keep it topped up and change only if you it shows signs of trouble

    Parts change:-

    Brake pads change:-
    recommended @ 30,000kms
    Can use any good quality pads. (labour 400rs for 4 wheels plus pads, from 500rs to 2500rs)

    Fuel filter change @ 40,000kms (IF driven on petrol)

    Air filter change @ 10,000kms Original Honda filter is best.Good quality guard filter is good too.
    980rs for OEM, 350rs for Guard filter.

    Spark plugs @ 20,000kms Original Honda plugs (8 plugs for idsi. 4 for steermatic, new city ivtec and before-2003 model City)

    Timing belt. Not required. From 2003 onwards, all honda Citys have timing chains instead of belts.They usually last a life time.

    Tune-ups :-

    Throttle body service @ 20,000kms Cost around 500rs
    Tappets adjustment / valve clearence @ 20,000kms Cost around 500rs

    Brake adjustment front not required after pads change. rear @ 30,000kms (or when front pads changed)

    Expected Life of Some parts:-

    Brake pads 35,000kms if driven aggressively ( cost already mentioned)
    Clutch plate 110,000kms if driven aggressively ( around 2000rs labour and 6000rs for clutch+pressure plate)
    Clutch bearing 150,000kms (So change with clutch plate) (800rs)
    Tuneups can be delayed to 30,000kms IF the car is run in clean enviornment like in Islamabad etc (less dust)
    Engine oil change can be delays to 5,000kms but not good in long run.

    Service Manual Honda City ids-i 2003-2008:-
    http://www.putlocker.com/file/CED54F8B8FB00360

    Tip for keeping automatic transmission (Vario and steermatic) healthy on CNG:-
    Change engine oil at 3,000kms MAX.
    Tranny oil at 30,000kms
    Tune up (throttle and valve clearence) at 20,000kms
    Do NOT ignore idleing problems. Rough idleing means jerks to transmission and thats what kills it on CNG.
    Keep air filter clean and change at 10,000kms max.

Do you have a clean air filter? I`d suggest you search for the hypermiling thread here an apply those fuel smart driving tips. I`ve heard an witnessed a problem with the new city`s ecu, somehow the elementary school it was sent to was for v6`s an v8`s, so it`s primary education isn`t good, which is tackled by Honda fiddling with it an after some new lessons it behaves like a good boy. So when you visit the dealership for your 5k service, ask them to have a look if the ecu is being batameez with you......
    well i use to change gears on rpm 3 or 3.5 some time....nad air filter is perfect no problem at all....ill gona have my cars 5k service on monday.....then i will ask them for ecu.

    it was cleaner from the inside, i never wander with open windows....or allow eating in the car......but liek i said bachay to phir bachay hain, they have to have their milk bottles an then fall asleep letting it drip all over......pure torture, i have plans to get the door handle silver bits that house the power window switches re-painted, once i have some time thats on my agenda, an then some heavy duty cloth upholstery for the seats cuz im using the original fabric...never had them covered. Anyone with any sort of idea as to how to clean these beige interiors, ive tried surf an water, nearly every aerosol can invented on earth.....no luck. Last solution i can find is pre soak the stuff i use for cleaning my engine.....will be covering them up with some water an stain proof cloth acquired from an audit of a sport bike apparel company. Lets see how much satya nas the kids can do of it......the cloth is claimed to be fire proof, heat resistant, tear proof, scratch proof an doesnt allow stains.....best of all, i can get it colour coded with my ride/s current interior.Im not a fan of leather or rexine interiors, firstly you keep on sliding here an there on it, secondly its not that comfy as compared to a cloth seat, you cant sink much inside a leather seat as you can in a cloth one, lastly my car stays in the sun in the parking all day long, God forbid i have to use it in the summer time, ill be clutching my rear for the rest of the day.

After the intake i`ve felt a slight increase in the car`s acceleration (or maybe its the sound,cant make up my mind on it yet, will have to go head on head with a stock one to see how it`s fairing), secondly the mileage has increased by around a km per litre as well. Somehow the little problem of dhamalling with low rpms has finished an the car behaves beautifully. But be warned the noise is adrenaline boiling, awaaaaih hi dil karta hai bhaganay ko. Members who`ve seen it, how was the installation? Did it look out of place or natural??I took special care to have the pipe chromed to perfection an the filters colour to be the same as the cars, i hate those odd looking yellow, green an blue filters inside white or black engine bays. Even the breather filter was sourced after visting many many many shops for the proper colour. An did the drilling myself for air filter sensor, put in a peice of rubber from my old bicycle`s handle inner side so the sensor would fit in snugly an not be touching metal.


    check out the overall package on this baby, ive never seen a more beautiful third gen city`s rear.

    Honda City Fan Club - 269534


    an my idea for the sticker is the phrase:

    SIMPLI CITY ......get it ?? Simple +City
    as mentioned before the setup looked perfectly done
    could not be any better and loved the sound

    yup its a beauty only third generation city with mods that actually looked good to my eyes

    kool idea for the sticker, lets pool our ideas here and find an expert to design it.

    Default Help me decide

    AOA guys,

    I currently have a 2010 Suzuki swift. I need to upgrade this hatch back with a sedan.

    Budget is 1.4M max. I cannot decide among the new city or XLI 1.3. i under stand its a spammed topic, but i have heard that the stock city has not a very decent road grip and drive.
    I understand that xli is a barebones car and does not even have power windows.
    I mentioned swift because that lil machine has a heart of a beast, man it runs hard and good. while "upgradin" to a sedan i donot want to lose a lot of fun factor which i get driving this lil car.

    I would appreciate if any new city owners can help me to get to know the x factor in this car which makes this forum lively


    Another concern is that i have heard Honda is giving city a face lift and i dont wanna b some one who buys a car and gets the older model by a couple of months (getting money for a new car is pretty damn hard)

    I suggest you run it for a bit, atleast the initial few k`s, def you`ll be gettin better readings in the future. I`ve gotten 17 in intercity an 22 on highway with my new city in manual. I hope your driving style is a bit relaxed an not ham fisted. Are you stopping idle with the air con on at places as well?

    To get a good an fair average, fill yer tank to brim, keep one consistent fuel pump an then monitor it, you have a big chance of errors with small Rs.1500 or Rs.500 refills.

    City's facelift is not any time soon. Honda is having hard time meeting Civic's time lines which is to be released next year, coz of the March 11 Catastrophe in Japan. I think it will take another 15-18 months before guys at Honda start talking about City's facelift.

    I have owned City 2011, it is more then efficient on fuel. It gave me 12-14 with in City and 17-19 on Highways

    https://www.pakwheels.com/forums/mem...da-city-2011-a

    If you are very road grip conscious and a racer kind of guy, You can always change the tires to a wider one. but remember doing it, you will pay a penalty in terms of mileage and it will make your Speedo out of Calibration (Changing the tire or rim size)

    https://www.pakwheels.com/forums/whe...re-rim-profile

    Stock tires works fine, it is to be used for normal use.

    Personally, I cannot appreciate the idea , paying 1.4 million and still void of metallic colors, ABS, power windows..... Man that's a pity !!!

    If you liked Swift sporty drive and would not like to lose it, I can bet you will sale XLI, with in few months. ! It is a giant with a smaller engine then its size.. HOW can any one expect any thing close to "Sporty" from this !


    That is one thing I like about Honda, they bring innovation every time their new product in in the market.

    City is agile, efficient and elegant. *Period* !

    well the half hour an misc stops an all justify the low mileage......my readings are on consistent driving an not with stops......dont keep yer rpms so low either, 2 to 2.5 till 3 is a healthy habit to follow.First tank fill.............hmmm.........i remember receiving the car back in 2009, an all my cars are from a dealership outside my current city. So i have some highway driving on the way home, my very first reading was around 15, i`ve just gotten an auto for a very dear friend it`s avg came around 12 nearly the same distance an driving style.

    Bro i agree with u that driving a swift is very orgasmic , its a lil monster ..... if u are planning to upgrade to a sedan CITY is the best in that case as u will not loose the pleasure u were having on the swift....i suggest u to take a test drive and u will know wot m tawkin about.....grip on stock tires is good....and if u are so into grip u may sell these stocks and buy a bit wider tyres by payin a lil extra.....PLEASE DONOT GO FOR XLI! I REPEAT NO XLI! there is no driving pleasure n baar baar hatho say sheesha neechay kertay wqt socho *** app k 14 lac is pay kharch kernay say behtar tha Cultus vxl lay leta :p cheers! [test drive recommended]

Anyone with any sort of idea as to how to clean these beige interiors, ive tried surf an water, nearly every aerosol can invented on earth.....no luck. Last solution i can find is pre soak the stuff i use for cleaning my engine.....will be covering them up with some water an stain proof cloth acquired from an audit of a sport bike apparel company. Lets see how much satya nas the kids can do of it......the cloth is claimed to be fire proof, heat resistant, tear proof, scratch proof an doesnt allow stains.....best of all, i can get it colour coded with my ride/s current interior.Im not a fan of leather or rexine interiors, firstly you keep on sliding here an there on it, secondly its not that comfy as compared to a cloth seat, you cant sink much inside a leather seat as you can in a cloth one, lastly my car stays in the sun in the parking all day long, God forbid i have to use it in the summer time, ill be clutching my rear for the rest of the day.
    did you try carpet cleaner. it is safe for the seats and the carpet. i used it to clean my car's door fabric. the only thing you shudnt use it on is the roof cloth
