    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.

    In lahore dont expect anything beyond 100 in one fill. I tell you normally when I drive I am alone in the car with a college bag of books small one and only once I got 100+ in a fill thats with AC at 2 and rpm under 3000. When travelling to karachi I manged 160-180 in a fill with AC at 3 and a car fully loaded yes I mean fully loaded with 6 people and their lugguage for 10 days plus 2 bags full of gifts I even had 10+ kgs of multani chaunsa on the gap around spare wheel so if your car is giving 110 be happy. Just be happy dont change your N***Y

    is ur car converted to cng too or u ve done all those miles on petrol only? well, the rule of thumb is that if ur is running fine, just let it! dont touch anything unnecessarily.
    a faulty fuel pump would show signs immediately so i would say if its not showing any signs, it has some life left in it.

    200,000km FTW

    These machines r damn reliable to think ppl in Pakistani think Toyota is the most reliable car ever

    my iDSI hasnt touched 50,000km yet in 5 years :p
    exactly.my car is a living proof that not only toyota but also honda can last for a long time if kept nicely.
    50,000kms in 5 years.... mine does that much every year

    @imaan1
    My car only gave me 140 while my way to ganda singh wala border. It only gives 110 in local but still i think can give as we do not completely finish the cylinder.
    140km/cyl is not bad but not soo good either! it depends on a lot of factor.may be less cng pressure or not so good gas, or heavy foot on accelerator or some stops with engine running and a/c on.or may be some minor tuning issues etc etc.so dont worry, this happens.cng mileage is never consistent on any car!

    My car has been driven on petrol from the start..
    I got the work done today. The gen belt was replaced. While getting the car checked, i saw that my radiator fan was not moving at all. The fan motor had gone bad, so got it replaced also...
    After 2 hours of labor and Rs:12k, all the problem's have been resolved ...

    Alhamdolillah, have just achieved 100k on the car`s odo while coming to office in the morning……………..thats a 100k kms of pure satisfaction……

    My history with city starts at the first gen launched in Pakistan…………….we received a car out of the first 50 an it was a collectors item….with the golden jubilee celebs of Paskistan going on, Honda entered with a ground breaker in the 1300 cc category……hyper 16 valve engine, metallic colours, drive quality an mileage far superior in it`s class…..my version had all the 50th anniv stickers an only some die hard city fans will remember that Honda launched some very rare twin toned anniversary models…I was lucky enough to get the very last one….bottle green on top an silver on the bottom half of the car……sadly since it was my first sedan, I got to operating on it myself…….within a year it had started falling apart……..nuts an screws were dropping like crazy everywhere the car was parked since I had opened every panel like only a billion times…….the stereo was changed from a cassette receiver to a cd unit, the headlights received EGR covers, which cost me a fortune…………..an very very rare to find…..fog lights were installed…but in 2000 after 240k kms on the odo the car met a tragic accident while going to Murree an sadly was sold off for the newer one….

    In comes the second generation,,,,,,,,,,,,,,the playboy among the lot………..crystal headlamps……..looks to die for an performance as well…………we got one of the first ten to roll out of the plant……..in white………got it registered with a special number as well…………an this was the car that stole my heart…….I dragged the hell out of it, drifted it like mad an it wouldn’t stop the the grip…..the car received fog lamps after 5 months, OEM equipment……..then neon meter gauges……an lastly a pair of 16’’ rims wrapped in low pro rubber………an this car was a gem……………we put cng on it from Isloo but took it off after only a week an even on gas it touched 160km in fourth……I have a PW witnesss to this fact……the car was lovingly looked after an driven madly…….eventually it received a twin step aluminium spoiler with an hks exhaust…….an the car used to frequent the main boulevard looking for civics to eat ! An it ate quite a few……..heck one day I had it runnin stock 13’’ up front an 16’’ on the rear with the exhaust, an we gave a shocker to a Kawasaki Ninja sport bike..the poor chap couldn’t shake me no matter what he did…from Centre Point to McDonalds in Defence through traffic, on empty roads…the car was a real powerhouse……I remember the car`s that ever beat it on my tips…only 3……..an bigger displacement rides…..anyway the last thing to go on the car was a neon gear knob an then the crank broke at 130k kms…….…….an after fixing it was just driven like an ol man`s ride n eventually sold off.

    The fourth generation my current ride canyon stone silver has been with me for the last 3 years… dad used it first as his daily driver…..car has done 100k today………what can I say about this model…….reliable as wapda is in loadshedding….amongst the experiments done this were fog lights, 18’’ alloys, air intake system, which is up for grabs cuz I`m going to sell the ride shortly….anyway the car has brought 5 couples together in marriage………including my marriage as well……four other cousins an friends used this as their waya wali gaddi……it`s been all over Pakistan………..never failed me……running on petrol since day one…special number plate….excellent mileage……bit short on power…….but a good family car……just receives lots an lots of care from my end…….

    The last is my fifth gen city………white, special no….havent driven it too much yet, but one word………………awesomeness….mileage is supeb, power is superb…..just a couple of rounds of highway driving on it an it`s on my good books…the interior is a bit too dark for my taste….the plastics are a bit down on quality as well…..but I still stand with it to be the best of the lot yet!!! So do I get to qualify as a city nut??

    After 2 hours of labor and Rs:12k, all the problem's have been resolved ...
    Allah ka shukar hai k aur koi major masla nai tha!!
    The radiator fan turns on and off according to car engine temp. If it was bad, the car would have red temp light come on at certain point e.g in busy traffic while ac is on etc.

    wow! that was an awesome post! loved it! u really have a lot of experience with every generation of the city! and each and everything u wrote about them is 100% correct!
    my family's first experience was with a 2000 silver honda city.before that, my dad was one of those toyota-and-suzuki-only guy.and in 2000, it was quite a bold decision to buy a honda as their production started only 6 years back, in pakistan (in 1994).but i remember dad's first comments when he drove it from faisalabad to sargodha.being a 10yr old, i hardly understood what dad meant when he said that city's drive was better then all the cars he had until that day which included all generations of corolla from 1982 onwards and some nissan sunnys, mitsubishi and even a mazda.
    but when i drove that city (yes im driving since i was 10 ) i understood SOME of it.the steering was smooth, engine was the quietest i had heard and the dashboard quality etc was awesome!
    sadly, that car met a very bad accident when it was just 1000kms driven... a pheonix armour truck ran into its side and destroyed the driver side.it was sold as it was for less then half the price it was bought just 1 month back.later, we kept on using our corolla and a mehran for quite some time.

    so, i have a little bit experience with the 2000 model but still i know the car and its capabilities very well.infact, the idsi embarrassed many honda city fan as it lacked the power that its predecessor had but soon people found sooo much other goodies in the idsi that they couldnt care less about the hp rating

    indeed u need a good cng tuner! my guess is that the air intake manifold is not blocked.it has to be blocked around 50% for a car to run nicely on cng because cng requires far less air to burn compared to petrol.with a lot of air coming in, the mixture is simple tooo lean to burn properly.try to block the air intake by 50% and try to drive.if it doesnt help, it can be something else regarding tuning on cng...
