    Hi, I am planning to buy an fit, iv heard that there’s some issues like, engine get stopped in traffic, battery issues etc. need to know how much mileage does per litre as well. thanks sajith

      Engine auto stop is not an issue. It is a functionality given to save fuel. When you in Eco mode and the engine will be stopped when you stop the car in traffic. if there is a huge difference in out side temperature and cabin temperature, the engine auto stop will not happen or engine will start again within short period of time to maintain the cabin temperature.
      I have FIT GP1 and I haven’t heard a battery problem in this model.
      In the city (normal traffic condition) my fuel economy is 18-19 kmpl, this is in Kandy with normal traffic and some hill roads
      I have experienced 27 kmpl Kandy to Colombo, and usual mileage to Kandy -Colombo round trip is 22-24 kmpl

    Dear all, I brought a Honda fit 2013 GP1 about month a go. All i need to know is can anyone change the language on IMA display from japanese to english? How much does it cost? Many thanks in advance

      According to my knowledge you cannot change the IMA display language. If you have a android phone with Google translator, you can translate Japanese to English. I used Google translator and it helped me a lot to understand information given in Japanese in my GP1

    • 10. Duthindara  |  July 24, 2014 at 6:19 PM

      Simple answer is no. Alternative is to install new unit.

    Hi all, First of all I would like to say it’s an excellent forum and am thrilled to get on board. Last week I bought a Fit GP5, mileage 3000km.
    Car has been shipped from Japan in March this year. Am wondering if the software update for gear box issue has been don before shipment. Is there anyway I can check it out.
    Also anybody knows how to disable the automatic city break system?

    • 12. Muditha  |  July 24, 2014 at 7:19 AM

      Hey friend can you please tell me about the software update. Because my GP5 is done only 16 KM/L

      • 13. Hiran  |  July 24, 2014 at 11:42 PM

        I am also averaging about 16km/l in colombo traffic. Hoping to take it to Stanford to check on sw update next week.

      Can you tell us more details how Automatic city break system works ?

    Hey guys. I have a GP1. In a video i learned that our 12V battery should be a deep cycle battery. however i don’t think my one is a deep cycle battery….(just got the vehicle from japan)…. any ideas????

    • 16. nam  |  July 20, 2014 at 12:15 AM

      My 1 is also from japan and installed a lead acid battery. Any comments?

    • 17. ruwindu  |  July 20, 2014 at 6:18 AM

      People say that Honda hybrid system has a starter motor and Toyota hybrid system has not,So Honda hybrid cars need normal lead acid battery.

    • 18. Nalin  |  July 21, 2014 at 12:19 PM

      I also have a GP1 and it has a normal 34 Ah lead acid battery (not a deep cycle), I think Honda and Toyota install normal batteries when they release the car to the market. The deep cycle batteries will give good results because hybrid battery does not need to charge it frequently

    Hi Guys,
    Need advise on my 2012 Fit Hybrid GP1 car sudden break fall issue. Mileage 7800 Km.
    2 day’s back went Jayawadanagama area (bit High land area) and parked the car. Then after 1 hour, start the car and try to move, but I felt steering wheel bit hard and tough to move, after waiting few mints, feels it’s ok and put D gear and moved down the mountain. Then I realized, break pedal got totally stuck and cannot press. Vehicle started moving down without control. then by using hand break able to stop the car. Then I switched off the engine and switched on again. Then every things became normal. and IMA display shows, last trip done 32 Km/L (issue occurring time). Seems it’s weird fuel consumption for GP1.

    Can anybody help me to figure out or share same any experience for further check? Thanks

    • 20. duthindara  |  July 17, 2014 at 2:21 PM

      Forget about fuel consumption. Definitely the engine’s shut down function made such a high figure on the slope.
      Just a suggestion,
      Importantly this shut down function might be set off the break system and electric steering motor! Bit strange. But you; the person really experienced and been terrorized.
      BTW, Thanks for sharing.

    • 21. varuna  |  July 18, 2014 at 3:38 PM

      Just an idea. Can use “S” mode at critical places. Unusual mountains and slopes, or even when passing a rail gate etc. according some recommendations

    Hi, Thought to share my own experience. Noticed regular a rapid charging and discharging cycles of IMA battery for last two weeks and therefore I suspected the culprit was 12v battery! (Discharging to the zero of IMA and then resumed charging) I’m so sure about my IMA battery since it was checked couple of weeks ago from a joint at Thalawathugoda. Since the car is 2011 GP1, life of 12v battery assumed to be 3.5 yrs. But as an initial treat, disconnected the battery terminals and cleaned them by hot water (Be careful of this, if the navigation system not provided with a map sd card). Of course some carbon paste noticed around the positive terminal.

    Reconnected the terminal after 15 mins. and started the car. Dash display shows zero level in IMA battery and therefore charged the battery by keeping RPM at 3000. Today ran 35 km. Now IMA battery is charging normally!!!! Not drowning to zero. Also the driving is so smooth.

    Share your experience too.
