    Guys please don't panic, I can't say for sure about the one that's yet to arrive but the one you're driving, if it had any software error you would've gotten to know by now .. recalls is nothing new, and even the ones that are have updated software so no real reason to believe in the worst God Forbid.. at the auction house inspection it is noted if the engine check light is on signifying any malfunction .. So inshAllah you won't be facing any problem

    Thank you for answering. Despite the above unknowns, I find the Vezel very good looking. Congratz bro.
    Hello,

    About the maintenance, I'm not entirely sure. I plan to send the car to either Khan Motors or Yazdani Motors in Karachi for its routine maintenance. Speaking of which, does anyone know what the service intervals are? Surely they can't be 1000, 5000 etc as in PKDM Hondas.

    But about the performance - I can say with certainty that you need to test drive a Vezel to believe it. It has a sharp response even in normal driving mode but switch it to Sport mode and its an entirely different animal altogether. As drzac has pointed out, it's faster than the 1.8 PKDM civic. Gear changes, specially when using the paddle shift in sport mode, as so fast that it made my brother say "Finally a road car with a sport mode that really means sport!"

    @mhansari .. Well I'll be taking maintenance pains as and when they approach, wouldn't worry too much from now
    For the moment, at 20k I'll get the tyres swapped within themselves, probably get it's alignment checked, brake serving and air filter replaced .. that's about it

    I asked Honda Classic I-10 Islamabad about the regular maintenance of vezel. According to their manager they have the oil filter, as it is the same as other Honda models, but not the air filter. Air filter is required to be replaced at 20k km so that may be acquired from Japan. Brake shoes are also different and not available at Honda workshops, these are required to be replaced at 40k depending on their condition.

    Also regarding use of hiOctane, if your car is working perfectly i.e. no knocking from the engine, on regular fuel that there is no need to use/add hiOctane in the fuel. Doing so will have no negative effect on the car.

    for those who r worrying about gearbox issue in Honda Vezel hybrid make sure the production from July 2013-Feb 2014 has been driven more than 3000-5000km as they have been covered under warranty n has been fixed by Honda Japan.....other than that drzac has mentioned the car has to be cleared for auction

    @hsnmz .. Well after having owned and maintained few honda atlas cars, I would never take Hawkzel to those guys ;p .. secondly, the maintenance parts like air filters and brake pads now available in Lahore, of course non OEM . As far as maintenance schedule is concerned, very soon I'll post the details here inshAllah..
    And RON requirements for vezel is 94 so HOBC mixture is recommended. Maybe in short term you won't notice any difference but surely in long term one way or the other, the performance will get compromised ..

    Honda Vezel hybrid LEB engine compression ratio is 11.5....so I think HOBC should be use once a month but I prefer not to mixed with super....I used to fill HOBC only on my markx as it had compression ratio 12.0cr which needed higher RON plus its direct injection engine same as vezel engine so it need HOBC to make their engine head free of carbons. Do google for direct injection engines information and their engine details
