  3. Hi Yasith,

    I’m using a 2014 Honda FIT GP5 (L). It has only done 22,700KMs as of now. I need to know what are the symptoms of DCT issue since everyone is curious in that topic? Also, what if the RECALL site says status is “Recalled” and the problems are sorted out? I also do see the sticker with a number.

    Thanks in advance,

  6. Dear Yasith,

    First of all, Thank you for your great service and blog. Since many years you helped all Honda GP5 owners , who chooses Honda GP5 among other brands with doubts.
    My question is , I am using GP5 (2014) L grade since April 2015 and now I feel the fuel consumption is higher than previous years. Earlier years I used to have average 25 KM /L but now a days I notice its around 20KM /L.
    Car is now in Nuwara Eliya with my parents and per day with hardly it goes 5 KM., But each three months I will drive around 1000 KM+ whenever I am back from vacation ( as I live in Singapore and come each three months.).

    I do all services at Honda each three months, but didn’t find any issue.
    Appreciate if you or anyone in this forum can advise which could be the issue.

    Note: also sometimes recently i face when I am in traffic when I accelerate car started Jump or not moving at all (when in Econ mode)

    Thank you ,

  7. Hi Yasith,

    Greetings!

    I’m using a 2014 GP5 (L). I do feel RPM went up around 2 – 3 (felt only one time) which I did not accelerate that much & as soon as I took my foot off, it was there for 2/3 seconds and came down to the normal mode. I checked in site, it says “recalled” & the issues are fixed and I do see the fixed number stickers in my car (near the door). Before purchasing it I did an inspection at Stafford and it was clear.

    Is this is an issue? if so, what I can do for this. Please advice.

    Thanks in advance

  10. I have Fit GP5 which was manufactured in 2013. Several times amber colour Smart Key warning popped up and last for several days or several start/off recycle (intermittent) . After that there was not a warning for few days and again it came back. Like that it happened several times. As I noticed, Smart key warning pops up most of the time when I try to switch off the vehicle (while pressing the brake padel and power button)
    1. Could you please let me know the reason for Smart key warning to blink and how can we solve it?

    2.If smart key system permanently fails, will it possible to start the car and how?

  20. Good day dear members. I am Faisal from Pakistan. Own a 2014 GP 5 fit. Yesterday I went to Honda dealership for getting it serviced. Where engine oil was changed., Breaks and throttle was serviced. The mech removed the connectors or break servo cleaned them with WD 40 and replugged them. Once the car was checked on computer latter on all of a sudden a number of faults got displayed in the speedometer. The Honda people could not remove them and finally told me to go to some second hand spar parts shop and get the break sensor changed after which the car will be re calibrated. I did come to a normal mechanic. He tried to replace all the three things (servo sensor, and motor assembly and a third motor, checked all the wiring also but the errors are not going off. I am really confused what to do. Anyone who can help.
