    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.

    _overspeeding light

    Two other ones i don't remember.

    oh... i see... i was doing it as fast as i could.. i dont know it worked very easily in the civic ... anyways, thanks, i ll try it again... and yaaarrr... what can we do, we get naked cars for the price of fully loaded ones that is one of the reason i dont feel like getting a new city... 1.5m PKR and what additional things would i get? ABS, 100hp engine and few other small things... not worth putting an extra 6 lakhs after selling my idsi...

    hello ahmadbila,

    Can you please tell me what is the tentative prices to change the bushes and mountings for the front suspensions and engine.

    My city 2006 gives some noise from steering on bumpy road also it feels that some mount of engine is week as when I accelerate the car it gives a very little tuck sound just as the metal to metal contact.

    Ok I am telling you the procedure hope you understand

    First of all you have to remove the silver rings to remove them you have to pull them front underside. The undersides come off easily and now the silver plate can move slightly now pull the same circle plate from the uppersides do only one side at a time because they are tight and require some force. When I was doing it on my car the undersides came off but the left upper corner one didnot come off at first than I pulled the upper right side one and it came off and now the entire plate was to remove. Actually there are 4 clips and the best place to remove upper ones will the two triangular places where three circles meet. Take 2 fingers and hold the plate such that the point on the plate where 2 circles are intersecting is in middle of your 2 fingers than pull it. Hope that will enable you to remove the silver circles.

    As soon as you remove the circles you will see 6 screws. 2 screws are for meter and 4 are for the beige plate inside silver plates. 2 screws for the meter will not be accessible easily but the 4 screws can be unscrewed easily. Unscrew them and the beige plate will come off.

    After you take off the beige plate you will see 5 more screws that are for the dome shaped roof for the speedometer. 2 screws for meter are also accessible. Unscrew all 7 screws and the dome will come off.

    Now you have to unclip 2 connectors both are of different size so no need to remember to which socket they belong. Its impossible to move meter inside its case even few inches unless you unclip those connectors and the connectors are damn tight so you will have to try a lot. Once they are off the meter can be taked by slightly moving it.

    Once the meter is out if you are just going for lense buffing than I think there are 7 locks that hold the lense fastened to the meter and they are hell easy to remove. Select a clip unclip and go in any sequence line wise and the lense will come off now you can buff it.

    As for as opening the inside of meter I dont know because I did not do it

    For doing all this you will have to move the steering in its bottom most position so make sure your adjustable function in your steering works because if it does not move you may get stuck in the middle although there is a way out you can remove the steering and do that quite easily but there are 2 problems. One you will a socket of the size that is on your wheel spanner and in the cabin it could be difficult to do that with your cars cross spanner, so you will need a proper socket. Secondly if you take it off than you will have to be very careful because steering wheel might not allign properly. By misalignment I mean to say that only steering wheels alignment will be out not of your cars so its not a big issue.

    And last but not the least all of you who try this procedure please post detailed pics and before and after and also post pics of the connectors and even screws I need them

    If you were one who had driven cars for few years or atleast been around them them you would have definitely understood the grade by the name formula

    As for Ahmad
    Why did you move to heavier one? I dont think with higher mileage you have to change the oil grade and highest recommended by honda is 10w30 I think why you are moving for heavier oils.

ABS, 100hp engine and few other small things... not worth putting an extra 6 lakhs after selling my idsi...
    oh nooooooooo! never ever and I mean it never ever try to sell your city. keep it rolling for next 5,10 and even 20 years, and from the condition of your car after 220k I can safely say that its not a halki car that hear ever other man says that honda na lena halki hai. I think the maintenance schedule you are following and mashallah your cars engine is as good as new it can easily last till 500k and may be even 1000k

    Today a strange thing happened. As I changed the oil yesterday it was my first morning drive with new oil. I started the car exactly at 8:12 am and the blue light in meter stayed on till 8:23 am at that time I had also driven 2.6 kms. One thing is that heater was on but it was not blowing that hot air, one would say that if I open the heater the car would not heat but I do it on regular basis on on previous occasions it used to turn off within 5 minutes. So does that happen to you guys as well

    Guys I need your expert openion on the issue. there is a slight problem in transmission of my city vario. I got it checked by Honda people. they say although its not a serios problem and will no effect the performance but if I want to get it fixed, it needs to overhaul the transmission including changing of a part in it (don't remembe the exact name of part, it was some kind of wheel/disk in trnasmission) which will cost around 18000/- after which its performance will be back to guaranteed 100%. Based on your experience or observation, plz suggest is it ok to go for this overhaul or is it just vaste of many. How much is it possible to re-assemble the whole transmission 100% corretly (as being claimed by Honda people).
    Thanx

    My bro, the auto transmission always needs a good mechanic to sort out the problem. First, u tell us that what exactly is the problem with ur transmission? what do u mean by a slight problem?

    Does the car have problems in moving?

    Bro ur city vario uses CVT transmission which requires very special person to be opened and repaired. so take a lot of care as to ensure if the mechanic is really capable of doing the job.

    The blue light of my car goes off after 5 or 7 minutes of the cold startup in the morning. (idling) It turns off hardly after 500m drive if driven cold.

    and this never happened to me though. may be its because of il change. Did u change the brand?

    yup before I was using havoline now am using valvoline. Today it stayed on for almost half the time it did yesterday because today heater was turned off. Just a day before oil change and it went off in exactly the time you mentioned

    U r very right brother, this CVT is no doubt a very delicate issue and thats why I took it to Honda Classic (a famous dealership of Honda in Islamabad) assuming that they have the capability of judging and repairing such problems.
    Issue with my car is that when i shift it from N to D it gives a 'Grrrr' sound, this sound remains only for 1 or 2 seconds and does not appear every time I shift it to D. No other problem is noticed so far as a result of this sound. Mechanic was saying that it may create problem in summer when using AC. Now I am testing it with AC since yesterday and its found that while using AC this sound also appears (multiple times and for 1 to 2 seconds) when shift is on D and break padel is pressed and RPM gets dropped slightly when this sound appears.
    So this is what I'v experienced so far. I m planning to visit another mechanic in Islamabad, recommended by some fellow here on Pakwheels, to get his openion as well.
    What do u suggest in this regard? what other option u think I have?
