Report improvement measures for approximately 110,000 Honda Fit units

Honda 4th generation fit front

On July 21, 2022, Honda announced that it had notified the Ministry of Land, Infrastructure, Transport and Tourism of improvement measures, saying that the startup processing program of Fit’s front wide view camera was inappropriate. It is based on information from the company, and it is reported that there are no current problems or accidents.

The target model is from January 21, 2020 (Reiwa 2) to February 8, 2021 (Reiwa 3)...The production period does not match the time of purchaseSo be sure to check it.

Honda tells us that if the model we own is applicable, we will promptly inspect and repair it. It is said that these measures will be taken from July 22, 2022 at any time.

You can check whether your own vehicle is a target vehicle by searching for a target vehicle for 4-wheel recall, improvement measures, and service campaign.

If your car is the target, you need to reserve the date and time of your visit to the nearest dealer and have it inspected and repaired. There is no charge for repairs and no costs.

Status of Honda Fit malfunction

Recall image image

In Fit’s safe driving support system (Honda SENSING), the front wide view camera activation processing program is inappropriate, so the camera may not start when the vehicle starts.

Therefore, even though the collision damage mitigation brake etc. is inactive, the indicator light turns on and the driver may not be able to recognize that it is inactive.

In response to this, Honda has reported that it will rewrite the startup processing program of the front wide view camera for all vehicles to a countermeasure program.

How to check the model and year

Light vehicle verification
Car verification (image is of a light car)

To verify the model and year of your car, you need to have a car verification ready.

Confirmation of the model is easy to understand because the item “model” of the vehicle verification is described as it is.

On the other hand, for the model year, the item “first registration (inspection) date” corresponds to it.

How to check the chassis number

The chassis number (body number) is a unique identification number for the vehicle, which is stamped on the chassis of the car or motorbike.

There are two steps to check the chassis number of the target Honda Fit this time. I will explain each of them.

Confirm by car verification

Vehicle inspection certificate

If you have a vehicle verification handy, you can find the chassis number from there. It is described in the position of the image.

Check with the car body stamp

The chassis number is stamped on the car body in addition to the car verification.

The chassis number is explained in detail in this article.
