I have a 2009 Civic from the start.
First of all dont go to a desi mechanic.
Dealership has 3 types of oils for your car. 1. Organic 2200/can, 2. Synthetic 2500/can, 3. Synthetic with newest tech oil 3000/can. Ur car will need one car for each oil change if oil filter is also changed. all oils are good for 5000kms.
Airfilter is i think Rs.1400 good for 10000kms
oil filter Rs.1100 and good for 10000kms. yani 1st oil change per ull change the oil n filter both after that oil change ho ga n then again next time oil n filter both.
They have good parts.
Ask the previous owner if he has gotten the 40,000kms wali maintenance.
This car needs changing of most of its oils and filters after every 40,000kms. uss kai ilawa sirf oil, oil filter n air filter change hotay hain.
This maintenance should cost u between 30-45K depending on condition of brakes.
How much ur car has driven in which year was is manufactured?
this car has 2 flaws as i have experienced. 1. oil mount is usually faulty and is changed by honda for free. I had this issues last yr n aik dafa honda walon nai oil mount badli then again this year the second one was also replaced after i contacted honda's office in DHA Lahore. I dint visit the honda office. I just called n emailed. They resolved the issue as the dealership dint want to change the oil mount for the second time.
2. Dont take it in deep water it tends to suck up water from sound bottle n break its head.
I had this car for the past 5 years it has done 83000kms n runs so good that everytime i think of selling it i discard the idea cuz this car has no issues. it is low to the ground which i personally like. it has good wide seats. it has a beautifully designed interior n exterior. it has a goood grip n feels very solid.
My car has not had any issues so far only maintenance is done through dealership.
Jahan parts n oils ki baat ho wahan dealership use kerain. otherwise go to an AC expert agar uss ka issue ho. Go to a specialized denter if uss ka issue ho.
I would prefer this car over the new civic n any corolla any day.
