Honda Malaysia is running a Product Up-Date Exercise on their Honda City cars. If you’re affected you should have received a letter informing you about the exercise. If you have a second hand Honda City perhaps you want to contact the previous owner to see if they received any letter on whether the car you bought from them is affected.

Anyway the exercise updates your ECU software and replaces the CVT gearbox fluid. Honda says the CVT fluid deteriorates under certain conditions and causes judders during acceleration. To avoid these symptoms, the fluid replacement and ECU upgrade is necessary.

The work is about 1.5 hours long and it is free of charge. Thanks to Wingz for the heads-up.
