    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.

    as mentioned above, do your best to protect the sheet metal, when the metal is welded into place - spray the body wax or cosmoline into the cavities, the car already has holes for this very purpose, The sill board inner area is done from the rear wheel arch, there is a rubber plug there in the front edge, that hole is used for the long spray wand for the wax deposit.

    similarly the rear fender sheet metal is separate from the body sheet metal, holes for this are provided too. Spray with wax to prevent rusting. The front fenders are also supposed to be painted with this wax/cosmo from the inside. It really helps in humid weather as water can bead up and slide off the wax instead of rusting out metal.

    i'll go along with him for buying the paint and other stuff and discuss the entire process in detail
    btw this is the first time i've heard of sanding the car after every base coat , what i had in mind that after painting the car we have to leave it for a couple of weak to let the paint cure properly and then do wet sanding and final compound to get rid of imperfections and orange peel
    i have another idea regarding the interior panels , will get 'em painted by carbographic guys either in a wooden texture or carbon fibre
    Well the dry sanding I mention is due to the fact that painting is not done indoors in paint booth rather in open air with dust particles, so to remove the effect of dust and sand particles they sand with micro sand paper to make the surface of base coat smooth.

    If you keep on applying coats & coats of paint with dust particles in every coat than you wont be able to pull of the effect with wet sanding at the end

    I dont think they use the wax but instead coat the sheets with anti rust protection, you know the cost reduction by pakistani car assemblers. If they filled the body with wax the cars would not rust that easily in karachi area. all the major cities of world are near the coast line but there the cars dont rust that easily as they do in pakistan

    i'll recheck the body holes because i didnt see them or maybe they are rusted
    the foot boards and a small portion of the rear left door is rusted badly so they will be replaced rest there is rust under the car
    where can i find cosmoline here in Khi and how much would it cost ?
    how can i remove the under carriage rust ?

    I dont have any pictures but those body holes are covered by rubber seals, they are black in colour. They wont be visible if any denter in the past did patchwork or charcoal covered.
    Are you talking about replacing entire door, if yes than please tell me the price you get it for, I want it for someone.
    Cosmoline you will find the shop selling guns and etc, it is used to rust proof their guns.
    For undercarriage rust, first strike every inch of sheet with hammer, the areas where the sheet bends or cracks, cut it and replace it. After it is done again check with slight hammering so that no weak part is left. Now clean the entire undercarriage with kerosene to remove all the rust and coat if with cosmoline. You can google that as to how to apply that, its application is same as that of charcoal but it is many times tougher and is very hard to remove.

    the wax cannot be seen normally - its like a very thin coating of it, and resembles cosmoline a lot. Once you are done with this - get a can of undercarrriage rubber infused paint - it is applied in a way that it ends up on the sills too. This is done to prevent stone chipping.

    For a lesson or to get an idea, find someone who has an older W123 or older style W124 mercedes benz with no plastic body kit. Look under the car - you will get the idea. Those cars have about 30 kg or more of the stuff applied to them.

    Don't go for baleno or santro club. Both are pathetic cars. Baleno turning radius is very large, this will create problem for u while parking and making acute turns which are very common in Pakistan due to traffic and small roads. Santro club doesn't feel good when u sit inside. It has feminine style.

    Honda City is excellent. Even cultus is good but its too low to the ground. This is not recommended for adults having knee problems.

    Consider Toyota Plaz 2001 or 2003 above models. Excellent car. I am personally using it for 6 years. 16-17km average on petrol with AC inside the Lahore city as its 1000cc. Extremely low maintenance. AC is chilling (much much better than Civic). More powerful than Vitz as it has 16 valves and 4 cylinders. All parts are same as of vitz except bumpers and lights. I recently changed its one light at Rs 6000/-. Shocks are same as vitz cost 3500 per pair. Platz also has ABS breaks and SRS air bag. But use on petrol only; no cng. I don't know the reason till now why Pakistanis don't buy such an Excellent car. Why it is not made popular here. Its a perfect car for a middle class person.

Swift engine is more responsive even at low RPMs whereas the city engine struggles. road grip of Swift i guess is far better than city. i would even give more marks in braking to swift. plus it comes with goodies like OEM fog lights, lovely alloy rims, IMMOBILIZER (a huge huge advantage) and a much better AC. if one has a small family, i mean only one child and so, swift is the better choice anyday. for a guy like me who is more of a family person with 3 kids and needing boot more often than not to go from here to there, city is the choice

    bad things about swift : extremely small cabin. in rear seat two ppl can hardly sit (tall fat guys like me), hard suspension like city, very very low on ground clearance (specially with 2 to 3 ppl in rear), bogus interior

    I agree with you, swift is probably the best thing that's ever happened to Pak Suzuki.

    Just a little addition, night time visibility in the swift is very poor. You might've noticed it.

    Just a fact, the bad things you mentioned, they ARE actually very significant when you spend like 1.4 million on a hatchback (lol @ auto for 1.6m) not to mention there exists a 'naked' version of the car with nothing but power windows.

    The amount of cash is just too much for a car of that size, at least city is a sedan. It does make a huge difference sir, you may or may not agree. City ka zamana hai sir, swift is just a chotoo no matter what happens to it.

    Moreover, I am waiting for the day when Swift starts getting assembled totally in Pakistan.

    Bhai, congratulations on the wonderful purchase, you've bought my latest love in horsepower and my next dream car.

    For the suggestions, it would be a lot better if you had mentioned your budget limits for this stuff. I believe you are based in Sargodha so @ahmadbila is the guy for you, PM him or text him and he'll let you know where to get car support in Sardgodha, faster than you could eat an indian banana

    And for wax shax, I think 3M performance finish is the thing for silver paint. Get Turtle Ice liquid polish for all exterior plastics/vinyl trims like headlights, tail lights, window borders, door trims etc etc.

    Oh yes, just a little advice, very common but still worth it: Drive the car with pyaar and mohabbat upto 2500kms. After the 2nd oil change (first @ 1000kms) you can floor it all you want, do it at least once a week or so to keep the heart beating healthy!

    Drive safe, Happy wheeling.
