Hi, there. It's still heavy snow & frozen days in Japan. The snow have lain thick about 20~60cm!! I'm waiting for spring coming soon...though off-road driving on the snow is very exciting.

Today's vehicle is one of best-seller compact cars in Japan, HONDA FIT. The name of JAZZ may be closer to people in Europe, Africa, South-East Asia, Middle East, Oceania. There are no days I don't see this vehicle at cities in Japan.
HONDA FIT (2001-up)

The name of GD series (GD1,GD2,GD3 and GD4) is written "Fit" with small letters. GE series are written "FIT" with big letters. And the logo mark of GD series are actually 2 types. 1300cc has a red point on "i" of "Fit"mark , 1500cc has a blue point. Logo marks of Jazz also same.

Fit is using for many purposes from a private car to a business car. Many types of people own it. So some owners might not good at driving. The most often accident is hitting on a front corner or rear. If the car was hit around its front fender, it might got any damages on its chassis also. It is better to check whether the car has repairing marks on fenders & bumpers before purchasing.

As I mentioned on the last EVERY NEWS about SUNNY, if its fender bolts have marks of using spanner, they have been repaired because of any damages before. If you find such marks, it's better to check its chassis carefully also.

Unfortunately, there are people who replace engine oil only once every 2 years when their car got an automobile  inspection. This fact is famous in Japan. If a car have used deteriorated engine oil, its life may get shorter. In the worst case, its engine will seize up & break down completely.

If you can, you should ask the sales man to show you the engine maintenance record. It will be better to choose FIT which had been replaced engine oil every time it drive 5,000~8,000km or every 6 month.

If the car doesn't have the engine maintenance record, you should check its engine condition carefully. Not only if it works good now, also if its engine sound is not bigger than other vehicles, if its smoke is not clear color.


  1. If a car have used worse website oil, its daily life may get reduced. In the most severe, its website will take up & separate down absolutely.
