  1. Hi, My friend has a Honda FIT Hybrid Model DAA-GP1. Few weeks back he got his vehicle check engine lights on and put his vehicle for diagnosis at local Honda Agents. They said there is an engine oil burning issue and hence they advice him to do engine flush clean-up along with spark plugs & injector cleaning. Then as per their advice he did above. During the repair they changed engine oil from 0W-20 to 10W-30 stating that its advisable to move to a higher viscosity oil grade in case of oil burning. It costed nearly Rs 20k. Then again just few days after his repair, Check Engine lights came again. Hence went again to Agents & they said it's a known issue for my model a hence they need to repair engine by changing Pistons, Piston Rings & other accessories etc etc.. which is kind of engine overhaul which may cost on avg Rs160k ++ . Other option is just clean the pistons without replacing.... which may cost 1/2 of the above price. However they havent recommend same as problem can re-appear. It seems there were similar cases before for same model. My friend got shocked as his vehicle has done only 40,000 ++ Kms. Its totally a design fault. I couldn't believe why Honda can't manufacture an engine which can drive at least 100,000Kms without any issue as I never experienced same either with Toyota or Nissan. However through internet, I found that this is a known issue for Honda Fit & Insight, & hence Honda Japan has issued a recall notice for same. My friends model / Chassis No also falls within the recalled chassis range. Refer below link. ( Open link with Chrome browser and Translate to English via Google translator or refer attached 3 images ) http://www.honda.co.jp/recall/auto/other/170120.html Seems initial Piston design allows sludge formation on the edge of the piston oil ring, hence it may result in poor sealing of the oil ring. Due to above it may cause engine oil to leak into engine combustion chamber which causes cylinder misfire hencec trigger Check Engine Lights. Sometimes even short circuit spark plugs. In the recall notice Honda has clearly mentioned below. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------ Chassis No range - Honda Fit : GP1-1200002 to GP1-1242186 May 10, Heisei 24 - August 2, Heisei 20 [Request to customers] 1) We are very sorry for everyone you love us, but if the above events occur, please contact the nearest Honda dealer in advance to inform us of your visit date and we will accept your inspection. 2) If parts replacement repair is necessary, we will do it free of charge ( FoC). 3) If you have any questions, please contact the nearest Honda dealer. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Since this is known recall, when i ask from agents , they informed me that they haven't officially informed to do this free of charge from Honda yet. Q1 : Has anyone experienced similar issue with Honda FIT GP1 ( or Insight ) ? How you have resolved it ? Have you guys replaced pistons + piston rings or only cleaned and re-fixed ? Q2 : I'm planning to write to Honda Japan and check validity of above recall option in SL. Does anyone has contact email of Honda Japan ? I couldn't locate it from their Japanese web site. Has any one tried this option before and any positive response /luck with it ? Thanks.
  2. In my honda fit GP5 I'm getting a "chiri chiri" (metal scrape) noise when my left front wheel hit a rough road with shocks. I'm not getting any noise or anything wired voice when I'm turning the steering wheel. I worried whether I'm having any trouble with my rack ends since I hit a bumbler on the road around 80Kmh few weeks back. Does any one have any opinion about this problem and what's the best thing to do? (eg. whether do a wheel aliment first) Thank you very much.

  4. There is no passenger seat belt alarm in my Honda fit gp1 2013. Driver seat belt alarm is working fine. 1. is it the same for all gp1 or is it just mine? 2. if its the same for all the gp1,is there any way of installing a passenger seat belt alarm? (i bought the car second hand so i have no idea whether the previous owner removed it or not.)
  5. I have been using a Honda FIT GE6 2009 Petrol Car for several years now and its almost 94,000 Kms on the odometer. Few months back car starts to knock (unsure this is the right term to describe the issue) starting at 1500 and goes away if I push the accelerator down or up a bit. If I keep the paddle in 1500 RPM the knock keeps continuing. Most of the time it starts knocking 1500 RPM and around 40Km/h but on highway or freeways happens on 70-80Km/h. Also this is quite noticeable as its shaken the whole car. This issue starts only after engine is getting hot. When I starts the car in the morning it runs very smooth but after driving around 10-15 minutes above symptoms starts. And also after a long trip like 4-5 hours of continuous driving car really hesitates to drive up hill. If I push the accelerator down, engine starts rev up without moving forward and after 2-3 seconds it starts moving smoothly. First thought this is a gearbox issue and changed CVT as well as added CVT conditioner from BG. Nothing changed and then did a full engine tune up (cleaning complete fuel system including petrol pump). Finally cleaned and replaced the EGR valve with a reconditioned one but no luck so I fixed my original EGR back. No error codes or no CEL. Also the engine mounts are in good condition. I have checked my plugs and injectors from two mechanics and both mentioned no need of changing them. If you guys can please share your thoughts here, that would be really helpful.

Specially with one hand its feels very tight. It worked very smoothly when I bought. Also, it is feeling little "grip" kind of effect when handle the wheel. Also, when traveling on a rough road its not smooth. I tested couple of Honda Fits(Same model) of my friends, but those are working smoothly. What may be case for this and how can I fix it?

  11. Hi All , I am using Honda Fit 2007 car, last week i went to wheel alignments, then those people told me that my car front shocks are moving little bit , its like moving it from the mount point. This happens only when the front wheels up by the jack , when car is on the ground there is no such thing, and also both front shocks are moving in same way, but there is no any noise or any thing strange when i'm driving. Then i met a garage person, he drove the car and said there is no issue in shocks, I just want to know is this a common issue or is it a default situation for this model or can it be a problem ? Thanks
