    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.

    Memon Bhai, did you ever get the injectors of your idsi cleaned or changed? From what I know, Honda 3S guys don't offer injector cleaning at their workshops. I'll have to get it done from somewhere else. What do you suggest in this case, I mean should I go for it or drop the idea of injector problems altogether?

    Secondly, the pump you're using in your car, what happens if fuel runs lower than a quarter while driving?
    I remember Ahmad bhai also has the same pump installed in his car and he did mention some issues regarding fuel pressure being delivered to the engine.

    and my brand new car keeps disappointing me again and again
    Faults since i bought it zero meter last year (summary)

    1. the khich khich sound from exhaust on high revs pushing the car to its limit......turned out to be faulty metallic ring in between 1st and 2nd stage of exhaust

    2. sound of something lose from under the hood at very slow speed on bumps.....turned out that this cant go away as it is the sound of water moving in the washer fluid bottle (when emptied, the sound went away)

    3. the husshhhhhh sound which comes when gear changed at high RPM.......still there, unsolved...Honda guys have absolutely no F***ing idea

    4. front left headlight fused (low beam only)


    5. latest fault yesterday....there is a periodic repeating click click sound from left door (repeats after every 5 seconds)...even with only ignition on, it is there....and today in the morning i realized that my left front door window is not working

    bought the car last june....just one year, and this is what u get from zero meter cars....and remember.....i m an extreeeemeeellyy careful driver, very soft on the pedal, a hypermiller, very very slow on humps and bumps....never ever gas anyone even washed my car except me myself....i wonder what would have happened if i had misused it a little.....seriously thinking of selling it and getting an Axio now

    Woah! Ye to acha khaasa LMAO ho gya waleed bhai.

    Number 3 is a mystery, number 4 ki samaj nai aati why would that have happened? Number 5 is totally . I mean a power window dead?! At 12k kms or so I think? Dafuq!

    I seriously don't know the level to which this car proved a nightmare for you. Meri wali to new hay khair but people have this car with mileages above 150k kms and their power windows are flawless.

    Khair, you're lucky, get it fixed in warranty. As for the axio choice, well JDM is better but you never know if the car is original or not. I hope your car starts serving you better in the days to come, all we can say is its a man-made machine. Faults can occur without warning. Extremely sad by the way.

    I seriously don't know the level to which this car proved a nightmare for you. Meri wali to new hay khair but people have this car with mileages above 150k kms and their power windows are flawless.

    Khair, you're lucky, get it fixed in warranty. As for the axio choice, well JDM is better but you never know if the car is original or not. I hope your car starts serving you better in the days to come, all we can say is its a man-made machine. Faults can occur without warning. Extremely sad by the way.
    car has done around 23k kilometers i guess. its not that its a disaster, when it runs, it runs great. but i m just.....uumm....hurt u can say. and no the warranty is out as i have installed fog lights in it, so i guess i wud have to pay.....heavily that is

    Still, what went wrong shouldn't have gone wrong, at least 'this' early. 23k kms is still nothing for a new car, its just over a year old. But well, we should be concentrating on how to fix by now.

    So, did you check the window fuse? Wiring etc? Is the window rolled fully up or is it open since it went dead?

    And for warranty, its a gloomy day. God knows what they'll charge for a window fix now. Do keep us posted whatever you plan on doing to fix it.

    no havent yet checked the fuse yet, but there is this clicking sound coming from within the door. sounds liken some relay. and as i said, its periodic. like......Click Click (5 seconds gap) Click click (5 seconds gap)..and so on.

    the window was rolled up completely...thankfully

    yeah i know they are going to mint the money from me. lets see. i might take it to a normal electrician, but it KILLS me to rip apart the door panels they are virgin. for the same very reason i never installed remote alarm thingy in it but they are going to destroy it. went to them yesterday but tehy said they didnt have time as the official time has been reduced ttill 4 PM. lets see if i can manage a little earlier today. still in office though my boss just doesnt pick his _ _ _ up timely in Ramadan

    I think its short circuit. May be due to humidity or water drops inside the door switch. Could be on the driver's side panel and could be on the left door's window switch as well. Because when you pull the switch to roll it up, and don't let go of it even if the window has rolled fully up, it produces this sound. There is some sort of circuit in the panel that cuts of current to the power window motor to prevent heating. May be the click click you hear is from that one, just a wild guess though.

    Sound means there is something going on inside.

    You can remove the fuse for sometime just to check if the circuit resets automatically. All the best for the visit, timings are a big problem in Ramadan Kareem, agree to that part. And yes, feelings mutual. Ripping apart the panel kills me as well, they cut open the plastic sheets just like barbers cut through hair.

    I bought mine in Sept 2012 and now with 17k, your story making me feel bad for you as well as myself. So far I've no problem as such but who knows what happens by the time it clocks 23k. However, my last experience with Honda city was good though it was 2005-iDSI and i drove for 165k.
    As for warranty, check with honda guys who might cover those issues in warranty as they have kept a provision for fog lamps in the front bumper including wiring too but it depends on how you installed the fog lamps.

    Thank you Skt_74 for the mention. I usually take my city and civic to the Honda Airport. Usually it is oil/filter change or routine maintenance work. No complaints so far. Before moving to DHA I used to go to City Sales but my experience with them was not so good. They have too much work at hand and attitude is bad. I find Honda Airport way better.

    Sorry, I might have missed that, can u please provide a link to that post of urs?

    And what you mean is, the pump is bad? I thought its the filter that gets clogged over time?

    There is no check light whatsoever showing up in the cluster. I'll get a diagnostic run on the car before they perform any job, i.e measuring the fuel pressure being delievered upto the engine. This car has been driven on petrol for over 90k kms as per my estimate, and the pump/filter etc hasn't been changed yet.
    Actually the reason behind pump failure is definitely filter getting choked. The filter is just a made of a material similar to the net and is called fuel pump sock. Unfortunately the sock that comes with aftermarket fuel pump does not fit the pump and we are bound to use the old filter i.e sock. The plastic case has nothing inside that can clog I once opened the spare case that I had and it had nothing inside that can be blocked. There is only 1 important thing and that is FPR spring. Since your car has done 230k kms the pump surely would have gone weak. It is also working even when the CNG is in use, so I think now is the time to change.

    P.S the thing I mentioned about fuel pump sock is only about after market pumps bought from open market. Honda genuine will cost a lot and its sock might fit but again the issue here is practicality I installed 800 rs pump and it worked I used to redline in 3rd gear at some 128km/hr and sometime back did redline in 4th so the pressure was good.

    Sir! First of all, Its Great Pleasure for me by Mentioning U & Getting Response.

    As far as I See Cleanest & Most Loved City 08 @ PW The First one comes in my mind is Aamir's Bhai RL or Ur Really Nicely kept STEERMATIC, So I thought Its Best TO mention Urs.

    Moeed Thanks a lot for mentioning Missing RL & Lahore

    As Anis bahi mentioned , I went to Qalma chok honda only once , they are very busy & wont give proper time to ride , seems to be in hurry all the time

    I went to Honda pit shop , Johar town its less crowded & i have no complains with them :

    I used to:

    ---Respect them
    ---Listen to them & their ideas ( but in the end do what manual says )
    ---Bought some 2 1/5L pepsi & some chips for the crew & eat 'n' drink in friendly environment
    ---Stay with your ride , if Manager said "Sir waiting area may bathainn " dont reply " mughay itbar nahee hay " said politely "I want to learn & get feedback for technician"


    On the other hand some lucky Ppl have " Khandani type mechanics" & they always went to them , I used to have one in Islamabad & my father still went there

    Sir MashaALLAH boht himat walay banday hain ap. I go to the workshops fully armed and loaded, just in case an 'ustaad' even tries to do something which seems to be a jugaaar but if the mechanic is gud, then he (his team) deserves the treatment that u used to give them....
