    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.

    The aspect ratio is on the higher side for 195 mm width. Correct size should have been 195 / 60 R15 thus maintaining the overall standard wheel diameter.

    2. No problem , its 100% aerodynamic.
    3. Both are good, every one buy its own easiness.
    4. White, grey metalic, silver, red too.
    5. confidence.
    6. upto you both are good (honda always good) new model ---> zabardast power.
    7. I think no matter, you can buy spare from open market. There is no heavines on shoulders during driving.

    Ok. but what buzzes me is the look of the car. current one are so small specially the rear ones. they look odd. i mean the space is just too much. the small tyre looks like that of a scooter.:p what if i go for 185/65/15?

    Secondly, can anyone tell me the price of Michelin tyre 185/65/15 or 195/65/15. I wana change my general tyres 175/65/15 with those. So needed to know how much i am going to pay more. My current general are used for 700 Km. Am unable to find current prices on internet.

    Oh. I have gone through a lot of discussion on xli over city. In that case there is a straight away answer CITY!!!. But when it comes to GLi vs. City then the only thing thats matters is ur pocket. Cars are both good.

    1. Much lower purchase and running cost (much fuel economy than any corolla).
    2. Zabardast
    3. MT=No problem. in AT=u cant install CNG. Mind my words u cant no matter what others have to say.
    4. In greenery areas and good road conditions, nothing beats red. But other than that i prefer Silver.
    5. Nothing really necessary. But i went for leather poshes and Key-less entry.
    6. Matter of pocket. I prefer Civic over GLi (all shape, economy and confort-wise) and City (only shape-wise) both.
    7. Yes, its true. But havent needed it yet. Will look for mod then will tell u.

    1) u save 1.5lakh, u get more power, more economy,more stability, better looks, and the top of all, much better drive.
    2)its just excellent.noise is a little bit more then idsi(bcuz this city has vtec) but far less then corolla. check this video, despite the rpms in max range, u dont hear a lot of noise, n i know it cuz i was driving it
    YouTube - 0-177km/h on new city in sargodha
    3) dont know anything about AT, but i ve met a few satisfied customers. although i always prefer manual cars for me.
    4) i love the lapis blue and the red color.
    5) explain ur question please
    6) if u drive not more then 50km a day,its better to buy a civic which has 30-60k kms mileage.but if u drive too much, like me, then ur civic will get too old too soon, so better get a brand new car
    7) yes, sadly, they have ripped off a few very small things frm it and arm rest is one of them.but its no big deal, u can get it custom made easily.
    8) read point number 1 and 2
    When the power of love exceeds the love for power, the world will finally know peace=Every man is guilty of all the good he didn't do

    1. Price difference and Fuel Economy.
    2. Great
    3.You can't use CNG in AT, otherwise best performance on petrol. I prefer AT.
    4. I like Royal Blue, Silver, Black and Dark Grey in the new City.
    5. You want to buy the car or something else??
    6. Your decision. Whether you prefer a brand new car that is not likely to give any major problems or you want to buy a car with great looks but half the fuel mileage of a City (hence double the petrol costs). Also parts of Civic are costlier and a used Civic may also give you some unexpected 'shocks' after the purchase.
    7. Yes, you can install it though at a nominal cost from anywhere
    8. Refer to my answer on point 1 again.

    @ussi
    nice car pal...i like the lip and side skirts..

    @all
    can u ppl please guide me about HIDs? a friend got a 2010 city and is not at all satisfied with the headlights, the visibility at night is far less then an idsi, which i guess is due to the smaller light housing.hes planning to put HID, but i ve heard from some ppl that HIDs r just for show off, they certainly make the ones on the outside blind but frm inside, u cant really see any better then stock lights, bcuz HID just disperses without focusing on specific areas, unlike stock lights.is it true? and some say there r only a few ranges of HID which actually make visibility better, like 3500k or 4000k... what do u guys say?

    Dear Friends,
    I have searched the market and get feedback from people over the topic of installing CNG in new city.
    The answers mostly are negative for the fact that CNG later causes problems and that petrol average is very good for city. However the actual average will be observed after driving atleast 5000 KM. Till date I drove 3000 KM.
    Currently my car is giving me average of 11 Km / Litre in city driving.
    I have been to Hyderabad and on that route my average was 16.9 KM / L.
    Still I am confused whether to install CNG or not.
    My daily drive is about 70 KM but the fuel consumption increases a lot when I return from office to home i.e. from I.I. Chundrigar Road to FB Area.
    There is a lot of traffic jam & hardly gets a chance to drove at 4th gear.
    If such traffic jams were not there, my car would easily go to 14 KM / Litre in city drive. I drive almost bumper to bumper in my way back.
    Plz. update / comment on installing CNG or NOT ??

    @deear
    brother i dont know who told u that CNG causes problems.it doesnt, BUT if the car is taken care of.i know some ppl with 14000kms on odometer of new city, driving on cng, no problem.the engine is basically of almost the same design (L series) as of idsi, and idsi is more then happy on cng, mine has done 164,000kms and going great.so i dont think there shud be any problem with installing cng.just go ahead, get cng, but take good care of ur car, change filter/oil/plugs on time... n u shud be out of trouble... these days ppl have cng in accord/camry/parado/surf and even few lower model mercedes and bmws...

    Hey guys,

    I have installed Yokohama Aspec 15/60/195 in my Honda City 2010 MT, but everyone suggesting to install 65 profile tire, did i do wrong? Should i also installed 15/65/195 size? That shop keeper told me that 65 profile size tires are for corolla which have height difference in it, while Euro Start 15/65/175 and Yokohama Aspec 15/60/195 both have same height in difference when he show me both tires together. He said if i will go for 65 profile, my car height will increase and driving will not give pleasure.

    Please make me clear.

    You have installed correct tyre size. Dont listen to wrong advisors. Enter the values in the tyre size calculator and u will yrself see that 195/60-R15 is perfect upgrade :

    Thank You to make me relax about Tires.

    One more question, when I drive my Honda City 2010 MT under 2000 RPM and then do rapid acceleration, car Pick is not so good, it feels like i driving it on CNG. Like if you drive car in second gear at 20KM speed and try to accelerate car in same gear, it does not pick so rapidly.

    Please Advice.

    Some of Tires Comparison website told me that there is also a speed difference. What i understood from there is that, on 15/65/175 If my speed showing 100KM/H in dashboard meter then on 15/60/195 tire size that same speed will show little less then that (i.e, 95KM/H)

    There will be a slight diff with yr new tyre size eg when yr speedo meter reads 100 km/h u will be actually travelling at 101.1 km/h. Its neglibigle. Dont worry and just relax

    Brother i am planing to install CNG in my City 2010 as well. I have already done market research. There is no problem at all. Iam waiting for 1000 km then I am going for the Italian one. Dont listen to these fack informers. They know nothing about Honda. My friends have already installed CNG in their Citys 2009 and 10. They are more than satisfied. But rememberinstall it from a well reputed mechanic.
