    Default Expert's Please reply (Problem with my Honda Civic

    Dear Experts,

    I currently have a Honda Civic VTI Oriel Prosmetic 2006. Its millage is 53,000 km. I was driving it on the highway and max speed it could go to was 150 km/hr using Petrol in D-Gear on a straight road.

    I had the car tunned at 51,500 km from Honda and considering i was the only passenger in the car should'nt it go to atleast 180 km/hr. Do tires play a role in it ? as i have 205/60/R15 (broad tires) as compared to the original 185/55/R15.? Can it be bad spark plugs ?

    Please advise if somebody has experienced this problem before.

    auto's speed is comparatively lower than manual however ur speed is quite low. when tell da honda ppl to tune up the car all they do is change the oil, check spark plugs, oil and air filters...which is not enuf...once in a while after bout 50-60km or more u need to get ur throttle body cleaned...it all depends on the air fuel mix ur car is getting... so i think u shud get ur throttle body cleaned.

    yes big tires also lower the speed.

    i took my vti or pros 2002 to 174km/hr on motorway on petrol. it refused to go beyond that. rpm was about 4000. do u think its okayy?? 86000km covered by the car.

    Another dumb question (one of the many asked by me :p), what's a throttle body? How does it affect the speed of the car?

    in a layman's language throttle body is the carborator of EFI cars. A clean throttle body gives more boost.

    Topic.
    I dont have civic but i have corolla SE Saloon i did 190Km/h also on my way from Lahore to Karachi and its intake is half blocked and i did that on CNG the car is manuall and covered 77000Kms. I did that on the same spark plugs that came stock in the car i replaced them at 75 or 76 thousand KMs

    i swear i dont want to see any of you guys coming from my rearview mirror. you have guts of talibans to go 180km~190km/hr on those cars in Pakistan.

    On second thought i might as well mention to avoid confusion, invest in a proper handling eqt if you cant drive at 120km/hr.

    Don't Say Rashid Bhai Get Stiff Suspension And Strut Bars....!!8-|
    Owner Just Can't Afford To Get One Since The Soft Suspension Is The Jewel Of The Car.....So I Don't Think Someone Gonna Ruin It Just For This......!!

    Yeah Overspeeding On These Cars Are Surely Dangerous....!Going Above 140-150Km/H Is Gonna Be Somehow Dangerous...After That You Just Don't Have Any Option......!!

    that's exactly the problem people want perf but without spending thinking their million plus car is best stuff and we are so stupid to change everything.

    that's creates problems not for them but others on road.
    here is another issue in post, cng has been fixed into car and why this car is not performing anymore like it should .
