    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.

Plus pick of the car gives feeling of running a CNG car as i need to push pedal real down get desired power/acceleration. Got 5K routine done; told them about pick issue but Honda ppl said tuning is ok. However, I am not enjoying the power and pick.

    I will appreciate if any PWs can suggest any thing!!!! Is the consumption ok? do i need to get the tuning checked? Any experts in Lahore, as I am in lahore now a days.

It`s common fault with the newer city`s, somehow, somewhere an electric sensor or ecu needs some adjusting. Nothing is wrong with the car.

    The blogger i remember clearly mentioned soaking it in the solution for atleast 8 hours, an claimed for the ctiric acids undoubetly cleaning powers proven in kitchen items an elsewhere could be a solution, someone there did try it, lemme see if i can find it again an get the results.

    about the intake mainfold, should I try chah sultan or gwalmandi, any chance of getting these things from there, I think they will be cheap if they are available there.
    14km/ltr is not that bad but im sure its still on the way getting better day by day.it will be at its max when u reach 10,000kms mark and it will stay there then.
    try to find the intake manifold in chah sultan etc, i cant say if u ll find it there or not.btw, dani123@pw had one for sale a few months back when he sold his car.u should check if he still has it for sale.

    Yer welcome mate, oh an on the topic of people complaining of auto city seeming like a cng car, had a deep down talk with a Honda manager,following is the analysis we did an the solution we came up, now till the idsi the city came with a throttle cable, an from what our knowledge allows, the current edition has sensors inplace of a cable, an that supposedly doesnt correspond well with immediate flooring or mashin of throttle. We had a little drive in a city at the dealership an from various testing responses, what we could see if the car`s rev range was 2.5+ before flooring it was able to cope with our need for speed, below this rev range the car needed frequent blips to the throttle, not a continous foot down. Can anybody try it as well an see if it works an share their result?

We had a little drive in a city at the dealership an from various testing responses, what we could see if the car`s rev range was 2.5+ before flooring it was able to cope with our need for speed, below this rev range the car needed frequent blips to the throttle, not a continous foot down. Can anybody try it as well an see if it works an share their result?
    ahaaann.... that could be a probable reason! never thought this electronic throttle could cause issues too! and oh, my mechanic onces told me that after servicing the throttle bodies of new civic and city, he attaches it to some tuning tool and calibrates the accelerator. if this is not done, the car wont perform well.so, i guess i should spread the word
    The throttle blipping might be needed if it is not properly calibrated!

    Just want to share my experience of a trip to Lahore and back last week with AC on. Reading of the car was 3200 km when I took -off. I averaged 16km/litre when going to Lahore via Motorway. That included racing the car from toll plaza to bhera in the speed range of 120-180 km. after which I drove sensibly at an average speed of 110-115km. Car was loaded with 4 passengers and luggage. not bad at all.

    However, I really understood the low mileage issue of Lahorites and Karachites. I drove roughly 100-110km within Lahore and I barely managed to average 12 km/l as per odo meter which has a difference of mileage calculation of about Re 0.50-0.80/km if mileage is calculated manually i.e. distance divided by refueling liters. While same average in Islamabad is around 15.5-16km. Its the traffic and the signals in Lahore. I must clarify that I live at main boulevard defence and drive was also near and around its surroundings. so its very difficult to manage the mileage there in Lahore or also in karachi; that's my experience of 4 days of driving in lahore.

    20+ km/l as mentioned above by vague-one is still a dream I wish to come true, which I believe should come after 5000-10000 km of driving. My odo is currently showing 4358km travel in total. So lets hope.

    Ahmad; would you recommend Honda Diagnostic system checking at 5000km free checkup by Honda or should I wait till 10000 for mileage to improve?

    Thanks

    Very nice, thanks for sharing ur experience.u are certainly right about the mileage issues of lahore/karachi honda city owners.we cannot blame it on the car at all.and ur car is still @ 4300kms so the figures will certainly improve and if u learn to drive economically (which i believe u already have) u ll touch 20km/ltr anytime when 10,000kms mark is crossed.

    For 5000kms inspection, honestly, its just a marketing gimmick, they dont really INSPECT the car properly.they just lift it up, tighten some nuts and bolts from underneath (which are most of the times not loose even a bit) they ll check the oil and water level in the relevant containers and off u go!

    theres no need to get the diagnostics performed at 5000kms or any mileage unless there is a problem or the check engine shows up. mileage will not increase by getting ECU diagnosed. so i would say just wait for 10,000kms.
    oh, get the engine oil changed at 5000kms if u havent done that already.

    Default central locking issue

    My city 2006 is having problem in central locking.

    Only the driver side lock opens while the other locks dont. while closing the driver side all four locks do close.

    What could be the issue and where to go for repair in Rwp/Isd?

    Also can it be due to the remote system installed in the car?

    Expert opinon please........

    Well today as the weather was pleasant so decided to test my city 2005 on M2 well it did more than I had anticipated at 4500 rpm on CNG in 5th gear with AC at 2 and with almost 300kgs on board car was just crossing 140km, at that speed there was extreme bubbling well it started after 120 so I decided not push more than that. We did around 300kms trip on M2 in 460 rs gas the car went 152 and still there was some gas that could go till 160 and during those 152 kms thrice I crossed 120 and twice 130 for atleast 2-3 kms on return the CNG guy robbed us by filling 580 rs gas where car only went 135 kms with speed constantly 110-115 after that I switched to petrol on petrol I was going at 120km/hr @ 3500 rpm with AC at 3 my father said "Gari ko Khencho" and what I did I shifted the car to 4th gear and the car was still going at 120km/hr @ 4500rpm not bad. When we reached lahore toll plaza crossed that and then I decided to check the acceleration of the car did not make any videos so dont know exact 0-100 but it was fast and the car was on petrol I changed gears at 4500rpm and I attained the following speeds 1st=35, 2nd=65, 3rd=95, 4th=120 I did not try beyond that because I know if I had done so car would have gone till 150km @ 4500 rpm in 5th gear. As there were some serious vibrations above 120km/hr well I can blame the tires because they are average. On CNG I managed 110 kms @ 3300 rpm and 120 at 3500 rpm. NOW THE REAL THING YES THE REAL THING MY CAR HAS 195/65 R14 TIRES AND I THINK IDSI CAME WITH 175/65 R13 STOCK SO AS PER THIS MY METER SHOWS INNACURATE SPEEDS IT SHOWS 12% LESS THAN ACTUAL SPEED YOU CAN SEE MY OTHER THREAD "I DID SOME MATHS" TO FIND OUT WHY.
    So the actual speeds attained by me were
    35=39
    65=73
    95=106
    110=123
    120=134
    130=145
    140=156

    After my return I was really cursing those ******* mechanics by just checking some sounds they can declare your engine 50% weak. If my car is 50% than I think I can hit 300km/hr with 100% LOL.

    According to me my car did well what do you say please comment

    Today I drove my friend's New Honda City.
    What an awesome car it is.
    I liked the drive and the suspension.
    Moreover,it was fun to drive.The steering really gives you a sporty feel.

    Only one thing that I don't like was the quality of plastic.
    I eat Volverine for breakfast.
