my city year 2014, just service my car at 80k km..SC said still no need change brake pad...wow...never change before since new car...it this normal???

How long your brake pads live, depends on your driving style. If you're a light foot braker then the pads will live long long. If you're last of the late brakers, then already replace many times lo. So you must be the former. Just wait for the high pitch squeal when you brake to signal your pads are finished then go change.

You have godlike braking skills.  notworthy.gif

But keeping the brakes for too long and it will get brittle with age and chips off with use. Then braking efficiency drops. I had that problem with my old car.

Back then with my Persona, the rule is change every 60,000km. Not sure for City though.

He probably goes low and slow and brakes like a feather.

QUOTE(8sg9ft @ Sep 25 2018, 11:43 AM)
If your brakes are squealing regularly or it feels you need to step on the brake pedal more than usual to stop the car, it might be better to change the pads.
*

Exactly right. Brake feel is something you develop as you drive more.

Does anyone actually use their paddle shift regularly? I have had my hybrid for almost a year, I can probably count the number of times using the shifters on one hand.

Not regularly, but quite often for me. When I want to overtake, on downhills (like from Genting), or when I want to engine brake like how I did with my manual car previously. Its not something you would bother with if you're the smooth driving type. I find it funny why its on the hybrid since the hybrid car is more focused on eco.
*
I agree, it is a bit odd to have it.
But maybe it is for you to short shift when in Sport mode because that engine map tends to hold a gear a lot longer than needed and makes the engine noise buzzy.

Being doing that when going down from Genting as well(will go up again soon lol). It helps alot to downshift plus less pressure on brakes. Not much usage on highway other than cruise control.
*
Yes. Downshifting down hill to engine brake saves brake pads. For Hybrids, got extra resistance from the regenerative braking to recharge the battery.

I love my cruise control so much. I am definitely fresher at my destination because I let the system manage the power train while I steer. Probably saves a bit more fuel too.

Although my daily drives majority on NS highway, I find I can only use cruise control for about 5 minutes before I come up to a slowpoke that's below my speed (I keep to the speed limits). Paddles more useful for me on my trips.

Apply throttle , overtake then resume cruise

In my experience, that's usually the case whether the Amoi is your gf or not. If you ask to drive, they gladly hand over the keys. Just be sure you can handle the vehicle.

gsan's SA gives better rebate than what you're given here. I booked my car through his leng lui SA. Waiting to get it.
I placed my booking about 2 weeks ago and she promised the car by December. Not sure if the same promise can be applied to you now, since the month is halfway through already.
*
December?! Might as well tell her to deliver in January, why wait so long just to get hit by depreciation in value of the car?
Drive a few weeks and the car already depreciated like you bought it earlier in the year.

At Honda service center, u guys stay with your car while servicing or stay at lobby until servicing done?
Can we stay with our car to watch the whole process?
*
Haha. You can watch them service your car from the cool comfort of the lounge while you drink white coffee and eat the free nasi lemak or beehoon.
At least I can in the Kepong Honda Belux service centre.

I don't think you are allowed in the service bay because there is no area designated for you, and your presence will just slow things down and pose a health and safety issue imho. Just go sit and watch in the customer lounge lah.

Sometime the servicing area is too far from the windows or blocked by other cars/machines.
Hard to communicate with the technician to show any problem as we are not there with them.
Sorry I was too used to proton service center lol

That is why when the SA does the walk around the car, you follow him and tell him what problems your car has and if it is something that only happens while driving you can ask the SA to bring the technician for a test drive.

I did my 30k km service today and there are good news, bad news, and worse news.

Good news
They will change my inner door rubber that kept coming. And they finally (I hoped!) found out the cause of my 'nyek nyek' left rear sound. I insisted the pomen to test drive with me, luckily within SC carpark got a road hump, so a short drive over it and the pomen confirmed there is a problem, unlike last time. rolleyes.gif

Um, why did you change your cabin filter at Honda SC, isn't it significantly cheaper to DIY?
Not to mention, alignment and balancing is also expensive.

That alignment and balancing, yeah, I wasn't paying attention on that cuz I was focus on my complaints but oh well, just this one time I let them earn me.

On Lazada, a Bosch brand cabin filter is 59 RM. How much is it from taobao?

Lolz! Why the give me back this?
[attachmentid=10081276]

What am I gonna do with them. Luckily they didn't return me the used oil filter and used engine oil as well :lol2:
*
Just to show ma, that they did the job. If they changed oil from the bottles, you'd get those too. Lol.

Then lucky that fella didn't ask for return of used engine oil & filter. Those stuff are toxic & carcinogenic after being used!

Even the unused oil last time, I told them to get rid of it since SC is also reluctant for you to use back the oil.
