    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 cost of clutch bearing is around 1000rs but changing it is a hard task.takes too much time and experties as the mechanic will have to take the transmission out.my own car's clutch bearing is nearly dead but clutch plate is also gonna die soon n i ll get em changed in one go.labour for all this is around 2000rs.

    No, the mileage is only 45,000

    Thanks for the input. Actually I am planning to buy new Honda City this June inshAllah. I am a bit lazy in cleaning my car, so I think I shouldn't consider Red.
    Bold Beige (Golden) seems to require less cleaning and seems good too.

    Bro i dont think my guess about the clutch bearing is wrong (but i do pray it is ) and if im right, then , sorry to say the previous owner of ur car must ve tempered the mileage of the car.as a 5yr old car with just 45,000kms is already a bit hard to believe. anyways, please dont be offended, thats just my guess.show it to some mechanic and do let me know what he says.

    I av same doubts..secondly there is sound coming wenever it hits jumps or rough roads..its very low and not sharp...wat could it be? wheel bearings?

    @ Shahid
    Happy Wedding Brother ( I know you will remain out of touch for few days ).
    @asee
    Its due to CNG tuning i guess.
    @Ahmad
    For your age group Red / Maroon is definitely a hot cake but in my opinion Gray or White are outstanding.
    Ahmad you can easily find low mileage driven vehicles in Karachi. I sold my 4 years driven Cuore (30K) driven only 6 months back. So may be (hopefully) not a tempering case.
    @fadk
    The noise may be due to clutch packings roughness. I doubt on bearings problem if it is 45K driven.
    @Accord
    Nice wheels man. Love it. Will find its advanced / better range for my upcoming CIVIC then will get your opinion.

    Regards,

    DR!
    Success lies not in fall but in getting up after every fall.

    AOA to every one and ahmadbila
    I have been reading this city forum for quite some time and found it very useful and
    will continue to read all the previous posts. I bought my 2nd hand city idsi 04 bak in
    aug 2010 with about 97k Km in 750000Rs. I would like to share my experience with
    idsi gradually.
    The car is nice shape as i slowly fall in love with my car. Ride is nice, AC, steering, braking and little smooth engine noise at idle etc.
    But one thing i noticed from day one that pick at starting is bit low, may be the car weight is heavy . I drove mehran for more than 3 years on petrol before and its response was good.
    One day i was looking around at intake manifold and saw some metal strip attached
    to it with tap. I removed it. After few days when i went on long ride, i noticed that pik from zero start was low as other car were racing fast than me. Few days later i put that metal strip again as i guess that cng kit installer put it there for better fuel mixture. I myself put more blokage at very begining of intake with tape and put a sock over it. I observed that pick was much better than before, even sometime i cant tell the difference wether its running on petrol or cng.
    I read post of ahmadbila that it work better for low RPM, i agree but i havnt tried at high speed. I had used the zic oil A+ 5w-20 in witnter with gaurd oil filter and happy with that as i changed it to about 3500km and oil was still in good condition. I changed it to shell ferrai helix ulta 5w-40 few with orignal honda filter. I would not buy the honda filter again as it is expensive and it has both gaurd and honda stamp on it. But there was not so big difference b/w zic and shell. Next time i
    would either go for zic 5w-40 or same shell oil as above.

    Besides that if someone have city idsi manual. Mr Adnan Matiullah (testdriver) have sent me link for hondajazz which is similar mostly to idsi as both are i think L13A type. Thanks to him.

    Thanks.

    I av same doubts..secondly there is sound coming wenever it hits jumps or rough roads..its very low and not sharp...wat could it be? wheel bearings?
    well, this sound isnt from bearings.bearing give sound only when the car is on high speeds (i.e. if they are dead) this sound would be some cracked bush from suspension, if not something simpler like some pipes etc touching body or other parts.
    btw, my own car has done 182,000kms and NOW i got the suspension work done.so its highly unlikely that ur car has suspension issues if its mileage is not tempered.

    well i wana ask mr billa regarding a prob which i am confronting these days in my city 2006...the car has done around 55000 km, runs bothon CNG nad petrol....however once the car is used on CNG and often during reversing the car i hear this stranghe sound of garr....bt this is nt experienced on petrol......plz advice to as regard to the likly casue....ragrds alll
    a sound from transmission on CNG? hmmm.. is ur car auto transmission? if not, then i dont think CNG is causing the problem.because cng is just an alternate fuel for engine, it has nothing to do with the transmission. but if ur car is auto, then a rough idleing engine can cause problems with the transmission.btw, in any case, if u havent changed the transmission oil of ur car, get it changed INSTANTLY (see main topic for schedule)

    @Deeaar
    brother certainly there are many cars with extremely low mileage (i know a 95 civic, done just 27k kms ) but the problems that hes mentioning shudnt occur at just 45k kms.and oh, nice to talk to u after many days

    lol... i know hes a very nice person but ur red steery owned the integra
    good to know u r satisfied.you ve done the right thing, changing the tires i mean, bcuz even if u neglect the age factor, 30k kms is the max limit that u can expect from tires to go without issues.plus they can be sold for a fair price.
    n btw, i can smell 160-170km/h from ur m2 testing stuff be safe.

    @atif
    no sir, mine didnt come with the engine sheet.actually that model had 2-3 more things and the price was 50k PKR more then this standard version, so i got this instead.

    Thanks.
    Im glad u like ur car.its surely a very nice one.
    performance of idsi is not the best in 1.3l range but please, dont compare it to mehran, sir.
    the metal strip that u removed is used to decrease the flow of air into the engine because CNG needs less air to be burnt.more air would turn the mixture lean and hence performance would decrease, in some cases the engine wud just refuse to work on cng without this blockage so dont take it out.
    Zic A+ is a good oil for winter, but not that good for summer, thats why im not using havoline again.if u drive a lot, specially in hot weathers,i wud recommend not to use any oil below 10w40. 20w40 or 20w50 is also good.
    and yes, the L12a engine of idsi and L13a engine of honda jazz are identical.

    30,000 Kms as the maximum limit?
    I guess good quality tires can do a lot more without giving issues.
