    Default CITY or COROLLA ?

    Hey guys ! I wanted 2 kno if i shud buy a city VTEC steermatic or is Corolla GLi better coz i have heard that city will cause proplem afterwards such as :-

    1) A friend ov mine bought a brand new o meter 2005 city vario from HONDA dealership. He later converted it on CNG which caused his 1 year warranty to finish. 1 year later later the gear box ov da car started making some weird noises so he went 2 the HONDA service centre n they told him that it will cost him 1 lack rupees.


    2) Another friend ov mine bought a brand new 2007 city vario from a HONDA dealership.Later he faced a major problem, that when he pressed the acclerator it was not coming back at its original position but he got it fixed for free as his car was insured.

    He then faced another problem afterwards. It was a rainy day and his CITY was parked outside.He went out for a ride wid me in his car but discovered that water was leaking into the ceiling throught the top left corner ov his windscreen but got that fixed too becoz ov his insurance.

    but CITY is automatic and has a 1.5 VTEC engine whereas GLi has manual transmission and has a 1.3litre 16 valve 2NZ-FE engine which will give CITY a better performance.

    Go for city steermatic. it has a better engine than a gli and is better value for money in terms of comfort ,power,a bit of luxury.
    all the persons that i know who are using city steermatic are very happy with it and are satisfied .
    so i would recommend u to go for city steermatic.

    these are very rare cases that you described....city does not have any fault or cause any problem afterwards....my most of the friends have city and not a single friend complained about the city....it all depends on how you handle and drive your car....city has the most comfortable ride and better in all sense than gli dude

    Among the local cars in the market steermatic is one of the best options with a lot of flexibility. The instances mentioned can very well be with Gli as the built quality of both is compromised. Corolla has a more rugged and rough feel to it as compared to city but city has a more noiseless feel. Buy whatever u like. But if resale and CNG are 2 imp concerns then go for GLi as CNG will compromise the transmission flexibilty of
    steermatic. Happy Driving!

    CNG+VARIO= R.I.P Tranny scene....have heard many CVT trannys going bad due to CNG installation... Dont know who are to blame, faulty installers or the actual transmission itself.

    actually CNG isnt that big an issue if converted properly that is,however resale for steermatic sucks and u'll be lucky to get 60k plus the prevailing market rate for similar age and condition IDSi...if you plan to keep it for 4yrs plus then definitely steermatic is the way to go

    @bluntknife, have u ever driven a steermatic for a considerable time? To completely utilize & enjoy steermatic transmission properly burnt fuel is required and this will be severely effected by CNG. If economics is a issue then this downgraded performance can be ignored. But if CNG is to be installed why go for a comparitively sophisticated tyranny in the first place? For CNG I think manual gear box will be more suitable than a CVT steermatic... Cheers!

    i`d say go 4 Honda City since i own 1 n hav been using it 4 the past 4yrs. its an i-dsi i must say is very much well built as compared 2 XLI/GLI. Superb fuel economy, much better handling than GLI, amazing n comfortable ride. i say city is the way 2 go. the only downside of city is CNG. i enquired from sum experts at HONDA Atlas Factory in MANGA tht wud it b a gud idea 2 use City on CNG, but they strongly condemned this idea of mine n said tht CNG will kill its engine n tranny i wud b better off using it on petrol so since then i m using it on petrol. if u opt 4 City steermatic nothing can b better than this. the only drawback is the resale n CNG factor. Cheers!!
