    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.

    okay guys so in a month or less time, im gonna get some tires for my cars. havent checked the markets for brands/models available and their price... i'd be getting 185/65/r14 sized tires and im more inclined towards yokohama. though im not sure exactly which yokos are available these days, A drives or S drives or any other, so anyone who recently went into this tire research please share ur views and recommend some nice tires... my prioritys are..

    1) Long life (with so much mileage, that has to be)
    2) comfort
    3) Soft and grippy

    a friend got michlen enery saver tires in his se saloon, he paid 8500rs/tire and he claims that it actually saves fuel... i dont see how can a tire save fuel but he says it does and hes also recommending me to get these tires. michelen is highly prestigeous brand, i know that, but is this "enery saving" thing real? the only way i can see that tires wud save energy is by reducing the surface area of the tire, less surface areas = less grip = less stress on the engine = less fuel needed

    or am i deriving a wrong equation?

    I got 185/65/R14 for my i-DSi back in 2010. I opted for Yokohama C-drives. I had the choice of going for Michelin's Energy Saver, but i felt it to b a little on a slight harder side as compared to the Yoko's C-Drive. Also, back then i was getting Energy saver for 5200/tire and C-drive for 4300/tire.
    I am glad i opted for Yoko's C-drive. I have driven them 23K uptil, and Allhamdoullillah, they are still as good as new. I didn't feel any significant difference in the consumption as compared to my original Generals.
    Btw, i came to the conclusion of Michelin being slightly hard as compared to Yoko by driving and not just by merely looking.
    My suggestions to you are that either go for Yoko's DNA dB or C-drives.
    Do not go for A-drives. they are ok, but not as good as either energy saver or C-drives.

    @AK471
    Welcome to the thread bro... glad to have u here...
    Bro i quietly followed ur 1.6l altis thread for some time and i loved the way u put each n everything with soooo much enthusiasm. Im not a really big corolla fan but ur thread made me respect the 1.6l more then all other corollas... infact it made me change my mind about toyota guys switching to 1.6l from 1.8l as their top of the range corolla.
    But i was shocked to see that it got stolen one day and the tracker guys couldnt even locate it
    anyways, its time u have to decide which car to buy now... well, i'd like to talk about 2 things here.

    First, did u check the new civic out? i mean, it does not look very promising , the shape is just like a stretched new city. if u like it, well n good, u can wait for it but if u dont like it, better get the current one! its always better to have the "better" car then to have the "latest" car. atleast thats what i believe.

    The second option that u might want to look at is JDM import cars... how about toyota premio? or may be even an accord CL7 if u feel comfortable with having a larger car. Top end pakistani cars like civic and corolla are good but they dont stand a chance against their japanese counterparts. The quality if a JDM car is just excellent... what do u think?

    as for city, after having a larger class car (i.e. new corolla) im not sure if u'd really like driving a smaller car. it also lacks some of the features that ur 1.6l altis had. plus, if u buy a city and drive it for a while n then sell it in case u wanna go for new civic when its launched, u're looking at a good 100,000 rs loss... so, make an informed decision, its better to buy a car that u want to live with in the long term, then to get a brand new car for a short while and then bearing loss on it...

    Cheers...

    Default D I Y. Mono and Brake callipers painted to red

    Honda City 2004's Monos,Brakes Callipers, Brake Rotors centre parts and rear drums painted to Red.
    Things needed along with the car tool kit. sand paper :1 , spray paint: 1-2

    Painting Brake callipers etc.
    1. lift the car.
    2. remove the tyres.
    3. wash the callipers, after drying remove the rust dirt etc with sand paper.
    4. clean any grease, oil or dust with clean cloth.
    5. cover the shocks or the other parts with cloth carefully to avoid paint.
    6. Spray the paint(7cf or english paint sprays easily availible in market price 120-150) from the distanse of about one foot. for better results make three to four thin coats. done wait for a while then fit the tyres back.

    Painting the Mono:
    1. open the trunk remove the two nuts on both ends of the rear trunk streamer of your car from inside the trunk
    2. gently unclip three clips of streamer. take out the steamer.
    3. there are two round clip locks behind the mono on the steramer remove them gently because you can break it if much force applied.
    4. there is a black lid behind the mono paint it
    5. get every thing fixed.

    NOTE: when i finished the Job. and idea clicked into my mind that why i painted the mono. i should have pasted the red reflector sticker sort of thing on it. it might look great when light reflects from it. But next time will try it.

    i 100% agree with you. this thread has valuable info regarding almost all the issues a city could have.. but people post pics of detailing and den other people give comments on their posts makes it extremely difficult to find the correct page contain guidance of specific problem.
    ofcourse i didnt mean to hurt any1... i have read other threads in pw.. they r not pics heavy... specially balenomaster thread.. such technical info could not be found anywhere else on net.

    ummm hummm...some new rubber for 1451. well, as you are inclined towards YOKO, I'll suggest yoko as well.

    Previously, as u may now, I had c drives on my car. But I had a really really bad experience with them as beads appeared on their sidewalls after about 25K of use.

    Now, I have yoko advan dB v551 on both cars. its super silent, super grippy and super soft as per my experience with all the tyres.

    Got Yoko dBs (not advan dB) in 205/65/R15 for my mamoon's Altis 09 last week.

    Cost 8000 per tyre from pindi saddar. don't know abt performance as not used yet.

    Don't go for A-drive. Its hard as rock.

    U can check out the new C-drive 2. its about 9k for 15", may be less for 14".

    my suggestion for u will be advan dB v551. Its around 8.5k for a 15", for 14" it should be bit less.

    However, only choose a tyre after u have done a good research.

    that is right
    even i was thinking the same thing about the pix i posted myself!!! well yes it should be the part of detailing thread but i dont think there is anything wrong in posting them here too, but we should limit the number of pix posted to 3 or 4 max and the members who want to comment on the pix should not quote the pictures again i think this is the middle way of solving the issue. but if members would still like to stop having detailing pix at all, im fine with that too... let me know what u guys think...
