    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.

    Well it cranks every time but starts sometimes. Self seems fine doesnt take any load. It does seem like an electric problem because when it starts it starts within half a self. Both self and battery are fine because i just cranked it a zillion times. I've heard the main relays on these pgmfis go bad often and the usual symptoms start with hot start up issues and end up with no starts. I will clean the main fueses in the morning i hope it works. I think meri gari konazar lag gai hay.

    Took an estimate, Genuine used light is for atleast 4k and the denter asked for another 3k to fix the dent and paint it over. Its been raining for a couple of days now so cudnt drop it. I ve decided to buy a thailand wali light for now.

    Went to Nathiagali beach today and it was awesome. You've gotta see this place, its a private beach for navy people. On the way back my car refused to start just like it refused in the morning. I kept trying and kept switching between cng n petrol and suddenly it started and ran fine till home. Havnt been able to start it after that.

    well then...they took the car to the general repair (they call it GR) and there they tactfully started adjusting the car here and there. i kept on telling them that guys PLEASE dont release the accelerator as the car will cool off and that sound wont come anymore but they dint listen to me. anyways, they lifted the car with that slow-mo hydraulic jack of theirs which again took ages, so resultantly when the car was up there, and when they shook the exhaust assembly, no sound was coming (i have mentioned in the previous posts that the sound ONLY came when u drove the hell out of the car, for fun, for emergency, whatever may be the reason). so the test driver guy turned towards me and said "sir mein tau aap ko pehlay hee keh raha tha koi awaaz naheen hey" ....and that...was...it.....within one microsecond, i lost it, and opened up a huge vocabulary of ____and ___ and ___, shouting at the top of my voice. i dont even have the words to explain, but guys trust me, it was very very VERY bad, which they richly deserved. so i told them "guys, let me make it very simple for u. either u guys are fixing the car today and hand it over to me, OR u guys are keeping it with urself and put it right, no matter it takes a week or a month. call me when its ok, and i m not paying a single penny for its repair. and let me see you guys not putting i right. i wud skip honda atlas from the chain and straightaway contact Honda japan, and the consequences thereon will not be my responsibility". then i made the test driver guy sit with me and took him to my decade old awesome trusted mechanic and took the car to the drive in pit (the one which is used by the wheel alignment guys....at the same level as that of the road so there is no time wasted by raising the car up and all) and told the macho guy to get down and shove his fat a s s in the pit, shake the exhaust pipe and listen to the dam sound. and he was like "oh yes yes...now i can listen..u r right". well i came back ad shunted them all again. that was the perfect catalyst. in a moment, there were like 9 guys under the car, a series of test drives, opening the whole exhaust starting from the headers, part by part, testing, cleaning, this and that. so much so they even changed the whole assembly with another honda city parked over there which had come for denting and painting and actually THAT was the real diagnostic. the problem was with a metallic ring which was in between the 2nd and 3rd stage of the exhaust. its job is to keep the both parts apart, keep a lil distance between them even if the car is super hot and the metal has expanded a little bit. the ring, for some reason, wasnt doing its job. so they changed it, under warranty, and the matter was resolved
    PS : they told me on the last test drive that IF the problem is of the catalytic converter, it will not be covered under the warranty and i wud have to pay for the replacement part, which would cost me like 50k rupees. i was like "dream on guys. a car driven for 5000 km and i pay 50000 rupees for it while its absolutely under warranty, over my dead body" . so they go like " but sir its blockage is related to the poor fuel, not our fault" . i told them " brother...even if u urinate in the tank day and night and dont put ANY petrol in it, even then the catalytic converter can NOT be blocked within 5000 km of a brand new car, so stop f u c k i n g with me and find the REAL problem"

    PS 2: after one of the failed test drives, they told me to keep on sitting in the car so that i keep on pressing the accelerator while they were raising the car on the hydraulic lift. i took few snaps while being in the car and posting them for fun sake

    Day two...today
    took the car today AGAIN to them for another minor sound which was coming from under the hood. it was a litle dugg dugg sound when the car is in the first gear and negotiating a rough or uneven patch of road, as if something is loose under the hood and hitting something. so the moment they saw me, they all started smiling and started looking at each other, as if to say "no bro...i am not going near this customer"....so, i carried the mood from yesterday and said " stop smiling guys...either u smile OR u frown, my complaint HAS to be addressed. so stop wasting ur time and get on it" . meanwhile i had already met their boss and they had seen me coming out of his office so they couldnt dodge. lol. anyways, today was an easy ordeal. they took the car for a test drive with me, brought it back, tightened few bolts of engine mounting and here and there, and the matter was resolved, again offcourse free of cost

    PS : yesterday, i got free at 5 in the evening, starting from 9 30 in the morning

    so in the end, all ended well now the car is perfectly OK and back to its best


    Those A-wholes!!!! thats what they try to do when someone pulls in with an issue that is not usual and for which they ll have to WORK to find out whats wrong... i ve had similar, infact worst experiences with them and thats why i always suggest ppl to stay away from these stealerships... im glad ur issue was finally recognized and fixed relatively easily, are u still considering to get a corolla?

I've heard the main relays on these pgmfis go bad often and the usual symptoms start with hot start up issues and end up with no starts. I will clean the main fueses in the morning i hope it works. I think meri gari konazar lag gai hay.

    Took an estimate, Genuine used light is for atleast 4k and the denter asked for another 3k to fix the dent and paint it over. Its been raining for a couple of days now so cudnt drop it. I ve decided to buy a thailand wali light for now.

    Went to Nathiagali beach today and it was awesome. You've gotta see this place, its a private beach for navy people. On the way back my car refused to start just like it refused in the morning. I kept trying and kept switching between cng n petrol and suddenly it started and ran fine till home. Havnt been able to start it after that.
    last time when i cleaned the fuses my machine was not even cliking the starter motor it was so dead due to rusty fuses and dad was really upset when i returned home from office, he need to go some where but car didnt started but got out of situation easily by cleaning the terminals.

    there is one relay near fuse box, infact upper side of fuse and one from where wires enters into the cabin from firewall, dont know which is for what purpose so far. talking of relays, there is one round relay mounted near the engine compartment fuse box just next to driver side headlight, any ideas whats that for??

    and do wait for bright sunny days to get denting painting to be done.

    Nops no idea! Wish i had a manual! If they were rusty there in isb thr probably dissolved into oxides here. The problem probably came to life after the rains here. Its very very humid here and offcourse my car is parked all day at the beach. I'll check everything tommorow. Ive done some research i think the relay near the fuse box is the one i am looking for.

    Yeap. Driving with a broken light is very painful for me. Lets hope we get some sun next week.

    No. Sticking to this car now. Came today to haripur with 5 adults and two children onboard, and the response I got from the engine on the hikes on few overtakes even surprised me. Was just wonderful. Ate few corollas on the way up as well.

    Hahah... I guess google has most answers these days!

    So i am thinking to check both the relays. One under the glove compartment and the other one near the fuse box. I think its also a good time to get some new fuses to replace the worn off ones and fill up those empty slots.

    Correction! Its a left hand drive so relay should only be at the drivers side in our cars. What do you think?

    Looks to be a little towards the top side.

    they are really damn hard to reach for, they will be just on top where wires exit the cabin for the door and indicator on fender, there is really big mess of wires there coming and going from all over the car to the fuse box, just proceed with calm and you'll be fine.

    All is good now I guess...BTW Indu$ Corolla is no different; their dealers are even worse!


    • I had to get the A/C's gas refilled; in the brand new Altis it was not fully filled; I had to spend 100Rs at Atla$ dealer where I ask them to check the pressure; took its photo and show them to Indu$ dealer as proof that pressure is not upto the mark
    • The mirror adjustment button panel was loose; had to spend hours in wait and then few more to get it fixed under warranty; those a$$-holes dont issue warranty book unless 1000 inspection is done and I had no choice to get the work done from other authorized dealer where there is usually less rush
    • There is only one free inspection unlike City / Civic where you get first three free inspections and these cover reasonable engine brake-in time; all computer checks get done etc. In case of Co-ROLLA; you have to pay from your own pocket for everything
