    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.

    The details have been posted in my earlier post. and as for that duct covered by masking tape, the reason is that it was open and a lot of dust used to come into the trunk by it so i put a lot of plastic shoppers in it and taped it!

    ha ha I was laughing & at the same time feeling pity for you also , indeed its a back braking job & for us its a daily routine work , some times even I reach home midnight but wont go straight inside without cleaning the Mats & few other touch ups, you did a great job considering the way your ride treated on daily basis , job done on front eyes is perfect , enjoyed the "blind lady" Pic

    Bandage work on digi is also treated well , you took off lot of weight from your ride , nice overalls on different parts in last few months.

    She is coming out perfect , engine ,suspension , interior , exterior , eyes, nose , nice to see her going through major surgery

    good luck you are doing very well :

    Thanks for visiting and appreciating Amir bhai
    detailing is indeed very very physically demanding job and its an infinite process. its never enough! u always have some room for improvement no matter how well u do, i believe u understand that better then me

    well the trunk is still naked on the inside i ve decided not to put the carpets back in for a few days.i'd use the car in this condition and will see if any dust enters the trunk again, if it does. wud put the carpet back ONLY after im 100% sure that its sealed off of any dust.

    and yes, its almost like a restoration process. i shud ve made a seperate thread for it, almost every single independent part of the car has been treated in some way or the other in the past few months. as u said, suspension, engine, brakes (gonna post pix in a while), exterior, interior, seats, trunk, head lights n few more... a lot more is still to come... stay tuned

    ahmad bhai, a mechanic has told me k if the timing chain of the engine is changed, almost all the excess sounds will vanish. he says he has done it to a city and it became silent as a new 2011 one...

    he said that especially the "kir kir kir" sound will go away. the engine will sound like calm "sss sss sss"..

    any opinions???

    and Bro, aaj kal thori bht detailing main b kr rha hoon.. mat poocheye kia bura haal hai.. but shoq ka koi moul nhn, so....
    yup! those are sound deadening materials... dont know why they dont use em through out the cabin and trunk area.

    i'd like to answer the question for Amir bhai too (like the kid in class who knows the answer and raises his hand to the highest possible point )
    The only thing that steermatic doesnt have is... ABS :| if it did, the list of must-haves wud be 100% complete for this car.
    emm.. no there isnt any map reading light too but yes, the rear drawers are installed. there is also sound dampening sheet under the bonnet.

    yes thats right... shok da koe mull nai lakin yaaarrr... my back hurts

    yyaarrr i have absolutely NO idea as to what shud be done about that sound! so far, im just living with it every morning i hear a lot of it and hate it

    if ur mechanic is assuring u soo much, why dont u go for it? it does make sense though... i searched on net and found that chain CAN produce these sounds... one thing is for sure, if it works, im gonna get my cars' chain changed RIGHTAWAY...

    yes thats right... shok da koe mull nai lakin yaaarrr... my back hurts
    actually, I am thinking of getting my hands on a steermatic... My friend has a white one very less driven, very clean, not like 132 but, clean..

    see if ur bro comes up with a steermatic very soon...

    as for ur back, ... get used to it dude if u want to keep ur car clean... the idea that my car won't have any one to care for her, hurts...

    holly cow... you're going for steermatic! thats great! go for it yaarr.. its one of the only few cars today in pakistan that can be bought for price less then what they are actually worth! dont worry, abs is good but dont worry, good drivers dont need ABS to stop

    and yes my back will be back fine after all of it is done. actually i have to bring my car to its best and then maintaining it at that level wont be as hard...

    It wud be good if we can meet there for sum gup shup and fish looking forward to it

    and bro when getting the timing chain installed... be EXTRA cautious... its a very technical job and if the new chain is installed even one teeth before or after the stock setting, ur car might end up being as fast as an alto n the whole process wud have to be done again...

    as far as i know, the chain and the sprocket both have marks indicating the points and these points shud allign perfectly. keep an eye on these!

    and yes it wud be great to hear ur city's sound after it gets some "strepsils"

    Default And now comes, brake service :D

    So, my 3rd "thing" about my car

    There was a slight grinding noise from one of the front brakes, the pads had worn out. i dont remember the mileage they were changed at but it wud be around 35,000kms i guess.

    day before yesterday, i went out and bought all 4 wheels' brake pads. 8 in total. two for each wheel.
    Cost was 750rs for front and 700rs for rear ones. thats 1450rs. i went for the cheapest available
    The reason being car doing 100kms a day i save cash on maintainence where i can.i'd NEVER buy a low quality air filter or plugs or engine oil or anything that can actually damage the car. but pads wont damage anything but themselves. so, makes sense. total cost including 700rs for labour was 2150rs.
    Result? sound vanishes, braking power increase EVEN though the pads have not properly adjusted according to the surface of the brake rotors. they re gonna get a lot better in the next few hundred kilometers, which means 2-3 days
    anyway, the pix...

    Front wheels. (forgot to take pix of front wheel pads)Honda City Fan Club -361596

    Honda City Fan Club -361598

    Honda City Fan Club -361599

    Honda City Fan Club -361600
