    Honda fit is probably the cheapest hybrid car you can buy, Although it's a mild hybrid, it gives decent mileage and offer good value for money in this segment of the market. It is available as a Hatch-back or station wagon body style. The later is called Honda Fit Shuttle Hybrid and it was only released in Japanese Domestic Market.

    Please use this thread as a platform to share your pictures, mileage, questions, comments or other suggestions regarding Honda Fit Hybrid or other cars with Honda IMA (Integrated Motor Assist).

    Some Details from Wikipedia: Sales of the Fit Hybrid began in Japan in October 2010. The hybrid version starts at ?1.59 million (around US$20,000), the lowest price for a gasoline-hybrid electric vehicle sold in Japan. The Fit Hybrid features a 1.3-litre engine and electric motor, with an estimated fuel economy of 3.3 litres per 100 kilometres (86 mpg-imp; 71 mpg-US) measured in accordance with Japanese 10?15 cycle. The car uses a parallel hybrid system that works in tandem with the gasoline engine. The parallel hybrid system is simple and lightweight while enhances driving performance and fuel economy.

The mechanic has suggested me to change the ABS motor. But from the simple "English" it seems like a problem with the "circuit" not with the motor. I discussed with the mechanic, but he insists that the motor must be changed. Please advice on possible diagnosis, remedies, costs involved and the best place to get it rectified in Islamabad..
    Best regards
    Better get it checked frm.Honda Fort if ur in lhr or 3S dealer in ir city.It sumtimes comes up when brake pads are or simple the abs senor need cleanin as they get corrosion on seat ports.

    Both oil based and dry flow filters are widely available at oil change shops,i am talking about lahore.recently i visited Filter House at kalma chowk and the quality of theior dry filter was azaming. avoid oil based filter as it will get dirty with in 5000 km and is near 4500 Rs and it cant be cleaned like dry based filters can be cleaned with pressure air etc.

    Please check again cause the engines of fit hybrid and vezel ain't same.
    Vezel has a Direct injection engine whereas the fit has a simple i-Vtec engine. Hence the power difference of about 20hp.
    upto 2013 honda fit hybrid has different engine but new gen honda fit hybrid (GP5) has same engine,but compression ratio is different,thats why power difference from vezel.otherwise Vezel,Gp5 and honda grace hybrid have same engine and drivetrains.

    Hi Brothers!
    I hope you're doing great! I Just wanted to know that what would be the total Final expense on the Honda Fit MOD Kit for Rs.57000/-

    It's a Kit from Malaysia but I know a very little about the duties & Stuff. All I saw from the Duty tariff that the CD(I think it stands for Calculated Duty) on Auto Bumper is 35%.

    I would be Really Very Grateful if someone would give me the idea.

    there is not much duty at bumpers etc.but shipment cost is more due to their size. i think your total expense will be near 80-90 thounsand including all. You can contact maxpower guys. i am there these days for my turbo build.i can ask for you if you want.

    Sure, I will share my experience. Presently I am gaining experience on it. :-)
    However; first impression was impressive. I bought it from Lahore, took it on motorway and headed back to pindi. Through out the journey, I kept trying to understand its systems and tips to operate efficiently. In pindi, I haven't drove it enough.
    It is my first hybrid car. Switching off of engine at idle was horrifying but later I realised that it was a car feature.
    So far it is fun.

    thanks.
    Congratulations. On your purchase. May it serve you well
    1)ev driving in ima machines is a tricky thing. The best you can Do is. Go upto speeds between 35 and 50. And then relax the force on the pedal., pressing it very slightly, the car might decelerate a little but will convert to ev in a 3 to 4 seconds.
    2) All Japanese cruise systems have this. It's because in Japan the maximum highway speed is 110. So the companies restrict the cruise till 110 only. So the maximum speed for cruise is 110.
    3)you can identify the version by looking at its chassis number. It should be on either of the front door (A black sticker probably), or under the hood. Should start with GP

    Mechanic i can't comment. But u can tell you this, it's a pretty simple car to maintain. Good knowledgeable person is all that is needed, no hifi mechanics are required. Because the fit is a mild hybrid and hence works mostly like any other petrol car. .
    Do post your fuel economy stats.
    And drive safe (y)

    Thanx for such a detailed reply. I am really grateful.
    My Car stays in EV mode for just couple of seconds than it switched to other modes even if I maintain the same speed. How can I extend this time period?
    Can we re program the cruise speed limit? You mean to say the 110 limit is for all imported Japanese cars.
    My fuel stats: I have driven it very less in the city. Probably twice or thrice. Very first day, coming from motorway to airport I got the average of 26. However for subsequent trips, car meter shows 15-16 km/l.

    Fist of all Mubarik ho ap ko.many of your quaries answered very well. yup the cruise limit cant be lifted.even in a vezel and other cars its 110km/H
    EV mode timing will depend on car batery charge,but its not very much time.dont expect it to behave like a prius to keep in EV mode upto 60 or so.Honda IMA is different.it works in conjucntion with engine.
    Did you reset your ODo meter A and B to get new milages?
    How much mileaged is it?
    Did you change the air filter or any other things?
    Oil change?
    keep in mind the recommended oil is 0W20. if not available you can go upto 0W30.dont listen to mechanics that its very thin etc etc.once it heats it becomes thicker.i recommend fully sysnthetic.
    Plz keep in mind that Honda Fit hybrid 1330 cc usually comes in price equal to or even less than new Xli/Honda city which are non hybrids.so if you are getting even 15km/L(worse case scenario),you dont have to worry that you are not saving fuel to compensate for any extra price paid for getting a Hybrid, because you did't pay that extra price. But expect it to give easyly 20km/L. learn to drive t that way. i made a thread for few tips and video regarding it.it in same section a other honda models

    Thank you for the appreciation, glad to know that the post was helpful.
    Yes the cruise is limited to 110 in all the Japanese cars. This can be changed through ecu reprogramming but it's not recommended.
    And about ev drive refer to the above post by deltoid61.
