    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.

    which oil are u using? i used to get havoline formula, it was 10w20 or 10w30 i guess.it was still too thick in the morning for cold starting so i switched to zic A/A+.. it was 5w20.that solved the cold starting problem.so, try getting a thinner engine oil next time.

    2) Tappets adjustment

    If tappets are adjusted for optimum performance on CNG, they do produce this sound on cng and petrol,both.and it gets a bit less noticable when the engine gets hotter.in this case, theres nothing wrong with the car n u shud learn to live with the sound

    i ll try to make a sound clip of my car too and will post here.
    1. I used chevron packed honda oil 10W30
    2. I also think that the sound is because of tappet but the --------there said my engine is 50% finished. I said WTF no oil decrease,no smoke, no missing, smoothest idle at 700rpm, half self start and the engine is 50%

    with the number of kms reaching to almost 2 lakh kms, i can safely say that i can predict what parts an idsi will require at what mileage.i think they ve change many of the things which still had a lot of life left in them, which is, not very good!
    Actually rs 7000 spent on brakes were justified because brake pads and disks were finished
    rs 6000 were spent on oil, gear oil, oil filter, air filter and plugs so thats also justified
    rs 2000 on fanbelt because it was broken into 2 and accelerator cable are also justified.
    So actually they spent 8000 more on things which were unnecessary at the stage.
    They charged almost 6000rs for the labour which I think any good mechanic would have taken 3000rs. Well as it was my first experience with Honda and I also started a thread to find a mechanic but no one replied so I had no other option left. 5000 rs ka choona lag gaya lakin I have learnt a useful lesson never ever go to honda dealership. Suzuki dealership sethi motors are very good I have visited them thrice and they are very nice

    If i were u , i wud ve given the guy a punch in his face!!! all they wanted after getting u to pay 23k is that u get engine overhauled from them :@ those B--t--ds!!!
    bro a 50% weak engine wud show excessive signs of its condition! theres no way k its weak n still showing no sign.
    so, dont pay attention to watever he says.and ignore the sound too, a thinner oil might enhance the cold starting but its not good for this scorching hot summers! so, for the time being, let it be as it is.
    though in winters, its safer to switch to a thinner oil,i used zic A+ all winters (though i didnt like it because of short life span) but cold starting was very comfortable.

    Today went for around 30km trip on my city. When I left home their was not any problem but as the car became hot (no red light was not glowing). The engine rpm started to fluctuate when the car was idle with AC on it was like when you accelerate at 3000rpm than release the accelerator the rpm comes back to 800rpm and than it plunges to 500 rpm and then comes back 800 rpm. The whole cycle of rpm up and down completes in around 5sec. This problem was on both fuels. It created problems for me to drive whenever I had to pick my car in first gear It used to give jhatkas and than their wasnot any problem in Subsequent gear changes mean gear shifts to 2,3,and 4 th gear were very smooth.
    Please If there is any lahore member who is getting his car maintained by a mechanic other than honda and he is satisfied help I need to get my car tuned. As you know Honda have already ripped me off while doing no good to my car

    do u know that many,many of the parts provided to u are JUST rebadged to HONDA and are basically the same thing that the supplier company is selling at less then half the price in the local market?
    F.C.C provides HONDA with clutch plate sets, NISSIN supplies them brake pads n shoes etc.same parts can be bought from market for a very less amount so i wud say it is NOT justified.the only thing justified wud be the oils,plugs,airfilter,fan belt and accelerator cable!

    anyways, u ve learnt ur lession

    btw, its just tuning issue, nothing serious.im sorry i dont know any good mechanic in lahore so i cant help there.

    anyways, u ve learnt ur lession
    Man I did not buy any parts from them they were charging 2300 for pads which I bought for 1950 similarly oil was for 2000 whereas I bought it for 1500

    Mate, if you want i can meet you in Honda fort, have your ride checked by my people there an see what they have to say. I have a half day from office tomorrow, will be free by 2ish, an the facility is just down the road from my office. I dont think there are any charges for inspections or analysis. If you wana give a jab, say so!

    salam guyz,

    Today i bought city 09, 36K driven and on petrol. I had previous experience of driving 06 & 08 city, and the past experience was awsome. I havent take over the car yet tomorrow i,ll give full payment and will get the ride.
    I did a test drive and i feel it a little sluggish and little lag in accelration dont know is it a problem or I am not used to it.

    the previous owner installed air intake in it and lost the orignal Air filter box. the sheet under the engine is missing, so please guide me from where can i get these two things (pindi/isb) and for how much. i want to bring it totally stock.
    I also need help from the experts about understanding its ODO meter. It is a maze for me showing something about the fuel average, while giving throttle a bar increasing in fuel average meter, whats that ????
    also give me some tips to maintain it, to increase fuel economy etc I dont have plan to install CNG in it but if i want to is it successful in this model ??? btw its manual transmission. I got it in 1265K is it good price, its totally geniune and in black colour, only 2 things missing which i mention earlier. Dont have the owner manual as well.

    THANKs
    Failing to prepare is preparing to fail.

    Sharin a moment.....was searching for ways to clean the cat, when came across a foreign blogger from spain who claimed if it really wasnt near death, a citric acid solution with water can clean up the cat upto 90%. As i was readin the blog a fellow pwer startin textin an when i told him of my study, he came up with a novel idea. Hats off to Pakistani ishtyle of doing things, the honourable gentleman said"rent a car in good condition of yer model, an change it`s cat with yours!" His answer kept me amused for a long time. Sudhar jao bhai!!!!!
