for brake pad leather covering i currently only know about one shop,there would be many others i am surethe shop where i got my cars' brake pads refurbished is situated just before PSO petrol pump where the Garhi shahu bridge ends towards UETas soon as you reach the traffic light after coming down from garhi shahu bridge(towards UET) you can see two small shops(with shutters) one of them is where brake pads are covered with leather, it cost me only 350 rs last year and i am still to get them serviced.they stop the car really well
In these vehicles sometimes you dont have the option between imported and locally made air filters, I use MAXX air filter which is locally made but it works fine, if you think its giving you trouble then change it more frequently, i haven't had any complaint with the local MAXX brand yet.From Badami bagh area you can get the air filter for about 250rs(price last year 2014) at whole sale rate, from makki oil store outlets they would probably charge you around 500rs for the same filter.Saying this because i get my car maintained from one of the branches of makki oil store
any original engine oil,it can either be 5w-30w or 5w-40wworks fine, i am running my car on fully synthetic oil and no complains so far
@obxeSir, although I don't own a Honda Life but I am impressed by your dedication to share your experience and help others. Very nice attitude. Please keep it up
I own a Honda City 2013 which I bought as its PKDM, consumes less fuel and maintenance is easy. Otherwise JDM cars have great build quality, many features but reliability and parts availability put me off. Hope you enjoy your ride. Drive safe.
Just bought Life Dive with Turbo charge(2010-2014) un-reg. it is really good in acceleration as compare to all other Kei cars. I am just curious about the mileage though all other things are joy able. pls comment
Once you drive any JDM for one week and then compare the driving comfort of JDM and Honda City PKDM. You will feel a great difference.

Guys I need you guys to tell me something. My father has purchased a Zest 2012 the car is MA very good. However my query is about a small button on the side of the shift lever labeled "DS", can anyone tell me what does it do? Thanks.
thank you sir,this car was bought on a budgethonda city is different game sir, this small kei car is for an initial exposure to technology that comes in much larger and expensive PKDM vehiclesfor example my life diva has heated wing mirrors which keeps the mirror free of mist when it rains
in my car a small button to the right hand side of shift lever is meant for engaging and disengaging OVER DRIVEin over drive the shifts take a longer time, take it this way its like driving the car at lower Revs.if you want to do some forceful work or acceleration disengage over drive.that is my understanding of it, i hope i am close to being accurate
thread update, i got the front brake pads and the rear brakes of my little car serviced yesterday as i thought ten months(approx) was enough for the leather pads, i wasnt hearing any creaking sounds but still got the brakes serviced since i had some spare time, and as always the stopping is spot on,no fading yet!
Thanx. Btw it is D3 not DS. The Zest has a 4 speed Prosmatec Tranny. The D3 acts like it does in any car ie it limits the shifting to only the first 3 gears. Unlike my Civic or City however there is no D1 option only goes down to D2.
I have Honda Life 2009
I got the Cat converter clean as car fuel average is very low 9 in city and now engine check light com up and Error code is of Cat converter.
What should I do now?
I got the code reset but it come's back after couple of days.
If in Lahore, go to the Honda Point in Johartown across Shaukat Khanum. They have the same diagnostic facilities as a 3S dealer (they use Honda's own proprietary diagnostic programs which cover every Honda model & are one of only two Honda points in Lahore with such equipment) & their work is first class. Also get your car checked out by Mian Ateeq of Rehman Motors Peco Road (next to National CNG). He is the best authority on Honda Cars you can find. Was an ex Honda employee & learned his trade at the hands of Honda Japan's instructors in Japan. The said Honda Point is owned by his brother. If he can fix it straight away (9/10 times) he will do so but if it is something which needs deep diagnosing he'll send you to Johartown. Tried & trusted. Pakka kaam hoga.
Thanks Umair Bro for your help and instructions.
i have honda life 2012, but problem is that my honda life have cd player installed with Japanese language, can i change his language from setting or not.
cd player language can only be changed if it has an option of language selection, post pictures/model number of cd player
Aslam O Alikum every one nd Salute to Obxe fr keeping up a good Thread, I am gonna purchase Honda Life 2012 its black November 2012 Model nd 2013 Import 42571 KM driven unrigesteredIts bumper to bumper genuine climate control nd push start Alloy rim nd over all marvelous condition what should be the right price ????& Should I buy it or get Ek Wagon or Mira 2012 instead ???
Mira has a slightly better resale value.if you like the interior styling of honda then mira and ek wagon will look less appealing to you.Do check for any noise in axles.also look at the main iron frame running along the engine for the presence of air bag sensors.
2012 car can easily cost around 10-11 lakh.rest depends upon condition.inspect the car from underneath and look at frame with torch light.also use the camera of your phone to look at the radiator of car and other hard to see spots to ensure that it hasnt been repaired
