Default Is New Honda City Service Check list/Plan changed?

Hello,

I will get this clarrified from Honda, but wanted to confirm from other New honda city owners.

Yesterday I did second servicing of my New Honda City ZX at Deccan Honda, Pune. Total running 4500 KMs. They have given service plan of either 5000 KMs or 3 months, but service centre advisor told me that now checklist of honda city is changed and there will be no OIL change or tyre rotations, wheel balancing etc. Normally earlier list has recommanded these things at 5000 KMs interval, but now he says it will be done after 10000 KMs.

Please let me know your experience with other dealers.

Thanks & Regards.

I get my NHC Gxi (2004) serviced at Deccan Honda and they still change oil every 5000 KM. At least they did not tell me that this has changed.

Default Honda City Service Interval

Hi,

I have a NHC and the service intervals are too short (3 months or 5K KMs)

I use my car mainly for commuting between home & office which is about 15 to 20Km perday. And for 3 months, mu usage is about 1500KM-that is when honda calls me for the next service.

As my usage is less, I was wondering can I wait for a bit longer-atleast till ODO reads 3000 Kms. (the service interval would be approximately 5-6 months till then)

I wish to have advice from my fellow BHPians..

Thanks in advance
Prince

I would happily switch to once a year or 10,000km, whichever is earlier. The reason for this figure is that is what modern oils allow safely. My cars are all on this schedule (I do about 8,000km a year per car). before this my Esteem followed the same. The fellow who bought the Esteem did in excess of 400,000km before he sold it! My son's cars Swift (earlier Alto VX) followed the same. Once out of warranty you are not obliged to listen to them!

If you want to be ultra cautions you may go for 5000km/once a year!

One other thing - what are the recommended service intervals for the Civic and Corolla Altis. Have any of them switched to once a year / 10,000km?

I hear that they have (at last) changed the service intervals. The City Mk.III now being sold is coming with a 10k/12 months service schedule. However, afaik the annual model is for Synthetic oil, and the twice a year /5000km is for semi-synthetic. From the pure VFM proposition the latter is more economical.

hello haneet, congratulations on the car. I dont want to spoil your ownership but i should warn you before you get into a bad experience. Honda quality is great, but now you are at the mercy of the two dealers in the city (i really cannot say which one is worse as they are both hopeless and absolute cheats)
go for the service on a free day and stay there the whole time. tell them you do not want anything extra to be done. Just the service plus oil change. (tell them you have only brought Rs 2000 with you.) Dont get taken even for injector cleaning, wheel balancing/ alignment, brake cleaning, etc... they dont do anything and charge you for it. and might in the process screw something else up!
You have no option but to go to them till you have warranty (so be alert and dont get taken into anything they say).
