    Default Honda Civic Hybrid 2008 Shocks

    AOA Everyone .. Just wanted to know if anyone of you can help me out with the Hybrid's Front Shocks in Pindi or Isb ? Im looking forward for used but in best condition. Reborn shocks cant fit in in Hybrid. Honda quoted me 40k for the pair which I believe is too much to pay. If anyone of you around have any idea, please do share. Many thanks !

    Wslam, i guess we dont've new or even used one avail in local market but i strongly recommend not 2 get it repaired frm local Honda facility with excruciatingly low quality control.. i own same car but dint encoynter this issue as of now. Can u share ur car's mileage.In sadar just next to babu mahalla there is a guy who has expertise in recharging shocks; moreover u gotta figure out whether u have issues with shocks (which is less likely) or springs which can b easily replaced in few bucks..best ov luck

    Look for Shibrahim in gawalmandi for used shocks(small junk parts shops not far from saeed fraudia)
    if he doesnt have them, he will certainly guide you

    If one cant help..the least he should consider is refrain frm taunting others...Islam teaches us all 2 regard others' opinions n choices..
    Coming back 2 Amad.. dont worry buddy. U own a car which is way better than many other in competition 72k is not the mileage which totally exhausts shocks, if havent already changed rims i recommended u stay with originals n select rec tyres 195/65/15. Get ur springs checked n get shocks recharged as one of the friends pinpointed the shop's name n issue will b resolved IA.
    Here r few tips for ur vehicle's maint
    1. Use only 0w20 oil n u may run for 10kmiles ~16k km. Get ur oil filter replaced with every oil change.
    2. Get ur CVT fluid drained n filled. Only use CVTF n not ATF. Fluid life is around 40k.
    3. Replace air filter periodically 16-24k
    4. Keep tyre pressure above min rec i.e 32psi (NOT EXCEEDING MAX PRESSURE LISTED ON UR TYRE)
    5. Use low rpm accelerations prefetably below 2k. Use cruise control while cruising at level roads n disengage auto cruise on uphill driving.
    Adopt these simple rules n u will observe significant improvemebt in Fuel economy.
    Share ur fuel economy figures aft using these tips n ill tell u mine, AH

    aik to sab loag foran molvi ban jaate hain.........

    I mean - what do you want? me to say Bismillah irrehman niraheem, Janaab qibla Amad sb, aap ki pareshaani sun ke bohot afsos howa - magar aap ki pasand ne aap ke jaib ko zarb lagadee hai kyunke iss car ke purzajaat bohot mehenge daam miltay hai, Aap dua karein shayad aasman se aajayen ye purzajaat.

    Its a choice the buyer made when he was buying the car, he already knew spare parts are "not available".. Im just pointing out that his comment of Rs 40K for replacement parts is not an alien figure.

    If you were in karachi there was a place who could redo them and also tune them if you want.

    Well u r so welcum..m n Saudia as of now... once back on visiting sadar ill try doing a recon 4 u. 10W30 is engine killer as replacement oil in case of non avail of 0w20 is 5w20. Thin oil gives low eng friction thus improves economy n its recommended by OEM. Thx Xulfiqar 4 adbi response....
    By the way civic hybrid's spares r avail 8 cheapest price (compared with other hybrids) barring few xceptionz..tc

    Brother use only mobil 1 5w50 or liquimoly synthoil 5w40 or shell helix ultra 5w30 in your car
    I suggest u only go for new Shock for 40k
