My pre-owned 3rd gen Honda City: 60000 km service update

There was also a slight rattle from the driver side. First one in a nearly 10 year old car.

BHPian Hamza123 recently shared this with other enthusiasts.

Time for an update after a long long time.

The Silver Arrow is doing well and have had no problems whatsoever. It was also due for its 60k service and it proved to be a major one:

  • All filters and oils including the tc gearbox oil change.
  • Brake pads changed.
  • Lower arm changed.
  • Link rods changed.

There was also a slight rattle from the driver side. First one in a nearly 10 year old car. My dad's Jazz and father in law's CR-V both being less than 2 year old rattle much more. Speak tons of this City's quality. I got the rubber beading changed and it's nearly gone but not entirely. I did not want them to open the door pad so left it at that. With music on u can't hear it at all.

Also the battery had got weak being a 5 year old battery I replaced it with an Amaron one from outside. Did the wheel balancing and alignment along with the rotation of tires as well.

Total expenses around 35k. Seems ok considering the age and work done. This is the first time I have spent more than 6k on it in the 4 years of ownership I have had it.

At the service center :

In for wheel balancing:

Am also planning to get a couple of panels touched up and redone and a deep clean inside and out.

Until next time.
