One key with Financier??? That is a new one! And they would return it at the end of the tenure?

I got 3 keys with my NHC (financed) - 1 with remote & 2 spare. I don't think the dealer can deposit the 3rd key with financier.

No.. nothing to do with finance.. Its only 2 keys. I got an external financier and there was no interaction between the dealer and the financier.

Now what happens if I lose the key with the lock/unlock button. Can I still start my car using the other key?

In short yes. The two keys are authorised to open the car. So any will do the only thing being that you cannot remotely open the car. To get an alternate key you have to go to the showroom and get a new key with the remote and get it authorized. Also pay a sum of I dont know how much.

Nothing funny about it. Used to happen. They infact used to hold the originals (RC, Insurance and the duplicate key). Infact Corporation bank still wants one key with them.

Never really ever seen/heared like one key is kept by bank so i find it a bit weird.

Sorry, "the nothing funny about it" wasn't meant for you. I meant the situation. For every insurance claim I had to go to the bank ask them for the originals (write a letter infact) and then get things done. If you lose your key it was the same thing. This was Karur Vysya Bank.

ok So there are only two keys...

I was expecting 3 keys so probably made that hypothesis of key with financier!

I guess the additional keys would cost quiet a bit. Last time I checked the Skoda Immobilizer enabled key was some 10k...


CSentil
Both keys have immobilizer chip in them, so either one can be used for driving.

When I bought my M800 in early 90s I had to surrender one key to the financiar, a nationlised bank. I never had such an experience later with any of my later cars. I have not taken any loan and when I got 2 keys I also had a similar doubt that they would have forgotten to give me the 3rd key. Consulting the user manual for this is almost useless since for any section in the manual you will spend more time in figuring out which is our Indian CIVIC model.

Quesiton of Compression ratio is still remains, no where it is mentioned clearly it is 10.5 for India!! I could not find anywhere the details about the recommended type of fuel (87RON or ?) or tyre pressure which is very basic information. I filled Shell premium and the experience is good. Planned to fill BP speed 97 next time.

What is the recommended typre pressure for the OEM tyres? Sales guys told me 28PSI for the front and 30 for rear. I may fill 32PSI for all. What is your experience?

Can anybody who changed their wheel and tyres share your experience?
I like to change to 205/55/R16. How is the ride quality compared to the stock tyres? When fully loaded does it improve ride over humps? Or still hit badly? For the past one week I have not hit any bumpers but rear seat was always empty!

regards,
Tomy

@Jeetu...

Thanks a ton for your inputs. No I am not confused between the MT and the AT. It has to be a MT for me
No misty violet for me. I am going in for a black one. So the color is decided the make is decided only the variant is giving me sleepless nights. As I mentioned earlier.. probably a toss would do just fine

When you say experience with Premium petrol is good, are you comparing this against regular petrol? Overall experience is great with Civic, but I found no perceptible driving difference with Shell regular and Premium petrol.

Honda recommends regular unleaded petrol.
30 PSI is std recommended pressure for all 4 tyres.

If I recollect correctly, both the above information is available in the manual. Compression ratio isn't. But overall the Owners Manual is hopeless.

Is it?

Did you guys run in your Civic? The dealer here says that you can take the car and zap around at 120 and there is going to be no difference in the long run to the vehicle. Left me confused.
