They changed the mileage to 5000k?
such a rip off as it was 10k back in december 2016, there was no need to change oil and filter that soon for a vehicle running CNG, guess that's how they making MORE money now..

Yeah they did. Did 5k service in March, was told next service at 15 k or six months which would have been September. Car was doing 9k when I took it to service in September, was told after that next service is 15 k or December. It’s service interval is 5 k or every 3 months.

Interested in purchasing a y11 with a cng kit already installed.

Never owned a cng vehicle before.

Hey guys I'm new here I have a 2015 Honda City CNG (about 100K) I usually service at ANSA service centre Port of Spain, on my last service I asked them to check my CNG system as on two occasions switchover to CNG did not occur, after the service (80K) they told me that the system was working fine, now the same thing has happened again, in the past when the issue occurred (2 times previously) it would just switch over the next day. However it has been a day going on 2 now and nothing, any suggestions? I am thinking it could be the solenoid valve by the tank because I don't hear the click it makes when it switches over on a couple instances when I heard it trying to switch.

the CNG Regulator needs to be changed and CNG Filter. Same thing happened to me good thing I got them to change free under the warranty as it would be very costly.

Happen to me today where the CNG system did not switched over and the switch was only blinking. This was because of the hot weather. The CNG gas expanded and locked up at the rail creating a higher pressure than usual. The fix came where I removed the batrery pole then removed one side of the short hose which goes to the rail. In conclusion the high pressure was released and the CNG system is functioning normal.

Guys took mine in for service yesterday, mileage was just over 18k. They told me that they needed to change transmission oil as it needs to change every 20k . As a long time Honda owner, sounds strange to me. Also they still insist that vehicle needs to service every 5k or 3months. Thoughts?

Transmission oil I can't comment but all new car dealers say 5k km or 3 mths.

Not sure about how those machines are broken in from factory, but a sooner than customary oil change fir new gears, seems reasonable.

For break in process I understand, but they are saying every 20k it needs to be changed. As in 20, 40,60,80etc.

I dunno. I think an external tranny cooler might be more useful than so frequent an oil change.

Are the changing the tranny oil filter/mesh/screen thingy, with that oil too?

My girl has a Honda City going on 2 years and is experiencing the same regulator, CNG filter and high pressure issues as in posts above. If you are considering purchasing a new Honda City I would recommend just looking at another car. The rate at which the filter, regulator and pressure will get too high is ridiculous.
