    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.

    iwill suggest you to do all the mention work from HONDA showroom , because these are the items which you want to be good one, and you can trust honda showroom, and because its your new car, so obviously NOW you will be needing the best...

    1: change the coolant from show room , not a big deal
    2:change all the fluids, including mobiloil, brake fluid etc, so from now you will have the idea when to change them again, change the one which are available in dealership
    3: isl/rwp members will guide you, or you can go to any authorised dealership
    4: 8 plugs are for better fuel consumption, they can work till the last drop of fuel left in tank, iridium will be costly, (ithink 2500rs per iridium plug, im not sure, i might be wrong or i might be TOTALLY wrong), if cost not an issue go for it, it will be good for fuel mileage.

    while doing this iwill suggest you to clear throttle body and fuel tank also, as i have once done in my 2006 city, and i was really amazed and happy from the outcome, real good pick and better fuel mileage...

    these were my view/suggestions


    peace
    Thanks for helping and replying

    Owais and Fahad Ayub bhai, plz guide us all in detail...
    1. Throttle body cleanup will be done in how much? What all with throttle body needs to be cleaned or replaced to get better fuel average.
    2. Plugs normal NGK are good for how much kms? Mine have done 20 k and still mechanic says they are fine. Need to replace or not?
    3. Coolant is necessary or water only is good if car doesn't heats up? If coolant is necessary, why? Should pure coolant be poured completely or mixed with water in some ratio? How much litres in an idsi if completely filled and what would be the cost and which coolant exactly truly works as there are many Chinese and Korean companies.
    4. Is there something ECU? I've heard that we should get it reset to adjust the rpm and it also may increase fuel economy. Is it so?
    5. Fuel tank cleanup price? Is it really necessary and helps increasing fuel economy?
    I'll be grateful for detailed review of yours for better understanding of all of us.

    1.brother throttle body clean up is not something that has to be done regularly once in a few years is more then enough
    still if you want to do it then just take it apart and clean the butterfly with carb cleaner also you would need to lubricate the IACV
    2.Recommended is 20k kms but you can stretch upto 25k km's
    3.Yes coolant is very important for an engine its anti rust/anti freeze/anti boil and also keeps the water pump(water body) in good condition
    always use a good quality coolant like Caltex/Honda/Toyota etc coolant is supposed to be mixed with distilled water the ratio is usually mentioned on the bottle you can also buy premixed coolant (Honda) just drain and flush out the old one and pour in new one
    4.ECU is the brain of the car controls alot of things so dont mess with it reseting is done to clean Check engine light
    5.usually the fuel filter needs replacement and injectors need servicing and these 2 things help with fuel economy
    cleaning the tank would just keep your fuel filter clean get it done when your replacing the fuel filter
    i havent posted labour charges for anything because that depends on the owner and mechanic

    3.Shock Mount - 02 pcs
    4. Engine Shield
    5. Fender Shield (left side)
    6. Silencer Rubber - 2 pcs rear
    7. Gear Mount

    Roughly estimate for above mentioned parts / labour + AC service they are asking 40k. Just wana experts opinion about the above quoted price is it fair price as this is my first experience. i will appreciate if someone guide me from where i can purchase original parts in ISB/RWP. Kindly do share the address/contact number/name of any reasonable guy from where i can do all these things.

    i didn't ask them for the fluids price, is kaam k itnay charge kar rahay hian, agar wo bhi add kar loon tu baat LAKH tak pohanch jayee gi
    Kya Honda waqie itni expensive hai

    Request for urgent reply as i want to change all these parts / fluids on coming Sat.

    okay so, welcome to HONDA family,

    wo kehtay hain na, HONDA rakhnay k lye jaib baray/bharay rakhnay chahenye.....!!!!!!! SAHI KEHTAY HAIN

    buddy, what i think is, that was some really expensive deal, in my view, you not need that shields from HONDA, you can get them from any spare part dealer, as i once changed one for my city 2006 left fender shield for 800, (from peshawar) and labour 150rs, THATS IT !!, silencer rubber, gear mounT, dont go there, HONDA WALAY TO CHURI TEZ KR K PURANI GARIYON K LYE HE BETHAY HAIN BHAI.

    bushes are the important one, one wants best thing, because you want these things to perform long lastings, so for bushes i might say yes , and AC servicing, im sure there will be alot alot ustadz there in isb, let isb guy recommend you one...so what im saying, in my view just for bushes go there, else do it from locals...



    peace
    Which of my photographs is my favorite? The one I?m going to take tomorrow ....

How much litres in an idsi if completely filled and what would be the cost and which coolant exactly truly works as there are many Chinese and Korean companies.
    4. Is there something ECU? I've heard that we should get it reset to adjust the rpm and it also may increase fuel economy. Is it so?
    5. Fuel tank cleanup price? Is it really necessary and helps increasing fuel economy?
    I'll be grateful for detailed review of yours for better understanding of all of us.


    so buddy all things depends on is this your new car?? mean you bought it now??

    if yes. THEN

    dont replace throttle body, just clean it, ithnik HONDA charge 3k for throttle body and other mechanics will hardly charge 500 for that, clean it you will feel the diff

    NGK are good for 20 to 25k, (but if its your new car you never know how much they have done), so recommended that change them, (in my view 200-250rs will be per plug).

    coolant upto you, as im not using any coolant in my car and i never feel that i can use it, so i cant guide you in this.

    never mess with ecu, fuel economy can also be increased by the above work done..

    fuel tank isnt necessary, bt if you can done it that will be good...

    if you are using your car from some time, then you might have idea when to change/do that work

    any thing you more like to ask more wellcome, or you didnt get my ans you are more wellcome to ask, and the prices mentioned are of my view...
    Which of my photographs is my favorite? The one I?m going to take tomorrow ....

    buddy, what i think is, that was some really expensive deal, in my view, you not need that shields from HONDA, you can get them from any spare part dealer, as i once changed one for my city 2006 left fender shield for 800, (from peshawar) and labour 150rs, THATS IT !!, silencer rubber, gear mounT, dont go there, HONDA WALAY TO CHURI TEZ KR K PURANI GARIYON K LYE HE BETHAY HAIN BHAI.

    bushes are the important one, one wants best thing, because you want these things to perform long lastings, so for bushes i might say yes , and AC servicing, im sure there will be alot alot ustadz there in isb, let isb guy recommend you one...so what im saying, in my view just for bushes go there, else do it from locals...



    peace
    Thx Brother, is it necessary to change those bushes from Honda 3S, as now m planning to purchase all required spare parts from the open market personally and visit some local ustaad G, by doing this i can save some money.
    One of my friend told me to visit Shahid Autos in Gawalmandi (RWP) for the parts. Parts tu le loon ga par change kis se karwaoon, i have no idea.

    roughly estimate for above mentioned parts / labour + ac service they are asking 40k. Just wana experts opinion about the above quoted price is it fair price as this is my first experience. I will appreciate if someone guide me from where i can purchase original parts in isb/rwp. Kindly do share the address/contact number/name of any reasonable guy from where i can do all these things.

    I didn't ask them for the fluids price, is kaam k itnay charge kar rahay hian, agar wo bhi add kar loon tu baat lakh tak pohanch jayee gi
    kya honda waqie itni expensive hai

    request for urgent reply as i want to change all these parts / fluids on coming sat.
    Thank you

    2.Recommended is 20k kms but you can stretch upto 25k km's
    3.Yes coolant is very important for an engine its anti rust/anti freeze/anti boil and also keeps the water pump(water body) in good condition
    always use a good quality coolant like Caltex/Honda/Toyota etc coolant is supposed to be mixed with distilled water the ratio is usually mentioned on the bottle you can also buy premixed coolant (Honda) just drain and flush out the old one and pour in new one
    4.ECU is the brain of the car controls alot of things so dont mess with it reseting is done to clean Check engine light
    5.usually the fuel filter needs replacement and injectors need servicing and these 2 things help with fuel economy
    cleaning the tank would just keep your fuel filter clean get it done when your replacing the fuel filter
    i havent posted labour charges for anything because that depends on the owner and mechanic
    Thanks for the details brother.
    Seems, time has come to get my plugs changed and some quality coolant.
    Grateful.

    No, it ain't my new car, I have it from January 2015, when it had done 60k. Now it has done 81k.
    What all needs to be replaced? I'm going for plugs replacement and coolant. I also feel like brake rotors (Tawwaz) also need replacement, as brake rotor rivets produce sound while applying and releasing brakes specially at slow speed (braking to a dead stop and releasing brakes at slopes dug dug sort of sound is produced). Any idea what it could be and price of both brake rotors plz?

    What do you guys think about Honda City 2003-05 as a first car for a new driver who doesn't have any experience of maintaining a car before. Is it better to go for a Cultus EFI at the start?

    change plugs and coolant, not a big deal in it...

    cost depends, if you want to do work from HONDA authorized dealer ship or not, IN MY VIEW, you dnt have to visit authorized dealership for this work, do it from any ustadz around you, find a good one, i dont think that brake rotors will be needing replacement (if not bended), a kheradi will do servicing of that, and that dug dug sound is either brake leathers or also kheradi work, IF not leathers, then that arm type thing which is carrying brake leathers got a nut type thing, that can be done by kheradi, a mechanic will check that from which side sound is coming, either one side or both, if its both, dont worry about it, everything can be done....and about cost i dont think this all work will exceed from 10k, if a quality mobil oil, coolant and plugs used
    Which of my photographs is my favorite? The one I?m going to take tomorrow ....

    mostly new drivers with no experience learn from the owner of the car, that how my boss is dealing with cars, then they also follow the same track.

    city 03-05 or a efi cultus you will find both in almost same price (if you buying), but maintenance of HONDA is costly then cultus,

    hmm, as i owned both, so iwill suggest a cultus for driver, because HONDA is not a drivers thing

    For a new driver Cultus would be a good choice. If possible buy a new one.

    Spending more than a million on a Cultus doesn't make sense to me. That's why I am considering City 2004-05 or EXI/EXIS 2000-02.

    sir, with due respect, please understand this thing after all the final decision has to be made by you

    if you buy a new car now, and you want to sell it after 10 to 12 years, so just imagine how much you have drove it, how much work you have done in it, what you expect then?? the work is finished?? more work will never come in car?? obviously this will come, but then there comes difference of a buyer buying car for the first time , or he is guru in car, let say he has very less knowledge of cars, but after that he will be knowing that work will come , so he will be comfortable with it, but what with a new buyer?? what if he boughht a car, after all that car will be everything for him, but suddenly by the next day work came out, what will that owner do?? how will he feel?? imean you and your family will be happy for new car, but most probably you will be hiding that car problems from them...


    as i said, decision has to be made by you...your call

    cheers
