      Is this upgrade for Recall on 23 Oct 2014. Are they upgrading the engine hardware as well according to the recall.

  • 9. Srgdr  |  October 29, 2014 at 6:43 PM

    Hi, today I just visited local few car sales, they said me that honda GP 5 best fuel economy as 18km/l and Toyota Aqua as 27km/l, is this true? I m planning to buy new 2014 honda fit GP 5 next month.(from jpn auction). I’m bit worried about fuel consumption since I’m traveling around 60km day. If someone is using GP 5 please give the exact figure. Thank you

    • 10. Phmpds  |  October 31, 2014 at 12:11 PM

      That’s not true. I have a GP5. And I have never seen fuel consumption below 20 km/l (without Eco switch ON). So far I got between 20- 26 km/l . With careful driving I guess you can achieve more than that.

  • 11. Bahu  |  October 29, 2014 at 9:36 AM

    Anyone knows fuel economy of honda vezel 4WD RU4. Thanx

  • 12. Srgdr  |  October 28, 2014 at 7:05 PM

    Hi, is there a place to buy a body kit for honda GP 5 L grade, if anyone knows please tell me the cost. Thank you

  • 13. Nuwan  |  October 28, 2014 at 10:24 AM


    I have recently bought a vezel hybrid. But I got to know the vehicle has so many issues regarding its transmission system and fuel consumption etc. Still I didn’t registered my vehicle. I would like to know about the condition of Vezel from a person(s) who is now using vezel(s). This is first time I bought a Honda vehicle.


    • 14. Nuwan  |  October 28, 2014 at 4:41 PM

      Go get your vehicle registered. Don’t worry about recalls. Its quite usual thing for a brand-new vehicle. Earlier we didn’t have internet and other intelligent communication mediums like today we have. Still our grand parents bought vehicles and ran without problems. There has been so many recalls in past few decades if you google you can find.
      Replacement of Plug top ignition coils and the fixing of noise filter is simple task which can be done within 1-2 hours as per my knowledge. Vezel is one of the best SUV is made for Japanese domestic market manufactured recently and they wont let that model down. Please be patient like others. I believe even without modification your vehicle will be fine in your hands.

  • 28. Harindu  |  October 26, 2014 at 10:04 AM

    Hi guys,
    To all who are planning to buy a hybrid
    FYI-The new tax percentage for hybrid vehicles stand at 57.5% of the CIF value under the 2015 budget

    • 29. Regi  |  October 27, 2014 at 7:59 AM

      Just to add more clarity for those who are waiting to import. CIF Value (Cost insurance and freight value) ideally should depicts the real vehicle value. This is calculated with the vehicle current price and with the options for the vehicle. CIF value is value where your vehicle is insured for when you are importing the vehicle as well.
      Only thing is that when the vehicles come to customs they will get a quote from authorized assessor in Sri Lanka for its CIF value. Then CIF value in your BL(Bill of lading) and CIF value obtained from authorized assessor get compared and you are taxed according to the highest CIF.

      Thanks Indrajith. This makes this forum more organized. All the best.

      Great work Indrajith, thank you for your time and effort

    • 36. ruwindu  |  October 25, 2014 at 6:16 AM

      Great work Indrajith, now it is very easy to search.

    • 37. Ranfer  |  October 25, 2014 at 10:06 AM

      Great work. Since lately, it had become difficult to sort the articles about the model of vehicle you are interested in. With this improvement it was solved.
      I would like to suggest another improvement.
      It would be great if you can place the articles relating to different models in the respective tabs.

  • 38. Namal  |  October 24, 2014 at 1:21 PM

    I hv a Honda FIT GP1 2013. It is doing around 25Km/L in highway and only around 14Km/L in Colombo city limit. Is it normal? Is there any oil which increase the efficiency by adding with petrol? And what is the best oil for it?

    • 39. RD  |  October 26, 2014 at 4:51 PM

      14kmpl within city traffic sounds normal. I would advise you not to add anything to the oil that are not manufacture recommended. Always use Honda genuine oils and whats recommended in the service manual. Nothing more, nothing less.

  • 40. Dharmapriya  |  October 24, 2014 at 1:06 PM

    Aren’t you aware of the current failure in Honda Vezel and Fit?

    • 41. Yasith Mayabandara  |  October 24, 2014 at 9:43 PM

      Dear Dharmapriya, This has been discussed earlier in this forum. I think most of the Vezel/Fit users are aware about this already.

      • 42. Prabath  |  October 24, 2014 at 11:24 PM

        Unless you can risk 5 m don’t buy a Vezel. Only god know what problems will come in future as there are defects brand new. Definitely, there will not be a second hand market. (call and check the price of the battery from the agent) I guess after 3-4 years the second hand market would be around 3.5 m.

    • 43. Ranfer  |  October 25, 2014 at 11:22 AM

      If it is a brand new car you have to expect recalls. If you do not like recalls, then you have to go for a used, second hand old model car. Face the reality.

      There had been many recalls of Toyota models and BMWs too.
      Google Toyota Recalls and see for yourself.

      Sorry, if I am sounded like being rude, but this is the reality.

      • 44. Prabath  |  October 27, 2014 at 8:30 AM

        I hope you are not living in Sri Lanka, please look this from Sri Lankan serpective. How many Toyotas /Nissans/BMWs came to SL brand new were recalled and costumers had to go this type of a problem during last 10 years. Friend please have a look at statistics before making public comments. Call agent (Honda) and check hazel -Vezel customers are going through. Recall face by a US citizen and a Sri Lankan are not in the same situation. Why does a company need to charge from a Local Honda customer for the factory defect. Do you still in the opinion that brand new car buyers should be ready for recalls(like they bought experimental vehicles). Please see how many brand new vehicles brought to Sri Lanka face the recall problems, calculate percentage for brands and see where Vezel stands. Sorry if I sounds bit rude. I would agree with you if you can find 10 buyers in the past who had to check Chsy/Eng numbers in the net to see the vehicle purchased is safe to drive after purchasing brand new vehicles.
