None of the PIs import 1.5L petrol Fit for now. For 1.5L, they only import the Hybrid version.

Only KM have 1.5L Jazz. But they don't sell the Hybrid version currently.


HU navigation/carplay:
Not sure about KM Jazz.
For PI, mine came with Pioneer 5150BT HU that can be used for Android Auto and Apple Carplay.
Now the x250BT series are out, so they shud be given that.
Different dealers have different deals, need to verify with them.

215BT is budget type, 2250 is low end 5250 is mid range, 9250 is high end.


LED headlights:
Jazz 1.5 have LED headlights.
Fit 1.5 Hybrid after facelift, the PIs only bring in the Halogen version.


Dash cam:
Jazz, used to be 1 ch dash cam. But I hear KM ones do not have parking mode because ppl keep draining the battery flat, then complain until KM dulan. Not sure if this is still the same now.

PI Fit, mine come with 2ch iRoad. Can enable parking mode. Got power cutoff to ensure I dun drain batt flat and cannot start car.


Reverse cam
Both have.
Is the mighty PI Honda FIT Hybrid's reverse camera the stock camera from Honda with dynamic guidelines?

PM sent. But as mentioned, mine is a Hybrid, and they are out of stock for Hybrids and never restock. Many dealers I see also out of stock. Maybe they dun want to spoil chance for CAT B CoE with a cheap 1.5L car. Sell big car can earn more.

I dun think it's the stock one, no dynamic guidelines. Only got static guidelines.
The Pioneer HU no input jack for detecting steering wheel position.

Short version:
Value for money, all my worst concerns (run road/recalls/car mods) addressed plus excellent service level quality (knowledge/honesty/humility).
It's also about the car model itself. KM don't sell Hybrid.


Long version:
Spoiler!

PIs are also supposed to handle recalls. Honda provide the parts for free. The dealer just need to arrange shipping and workshop. It's just that some play punk.

https://www.businesstimes.com.sg/transport/parallel-import-cars-in-the-spotlight-after-report-on-uber-case?amp


In general, advice is go for the bigger PIs that are established and are here for good, big enough to import the cars directly instead of having to buy from a bigger local importer. Having CASE trust is just 1 documentable step. (Of course, having CASE trust doesn't mean their CEO won't run road or the business go bust. But this also applies to KM)

Generally, you are correct that bigger PI should also handles... it is also safe guard your self to get these bigger PI to write down on purchase agreements how they handle recalls.
Again if there is a recall, Honda Motor Japan will first signal this to their domestic AD. These domestic AD will settle those unit sold locally as first priority.
Subsequently, those affected which are exported as secondary case.
Be prepare to wait.

But just wondering, beside safe guards, how to minimize the chance of picking a car whose model may be recalled in the future? I'm sure there a lot of PI cars around on the roads

U can’t, even Maserati and Ferrari also get recall lol , actually nothing wrong buying from pi as it is cheaper , due to the standard is not as stringent as ad. U think cycle want do thier mercedes show room till so nice meh , it because of certain standard they need to fulfill as ad , as ad represent the brand in that country .
U run small risk like the car is not tune and set up for sg content if it is from pi, but that is very minimal risk . U see those jdm made car , and inside is all in Japanese , some ppl think it made in Japan , but actually the car manufacturers will ask the ad to change the setting to sg English content if it is From ad
To make it simple pi is reseller like challenger selling iPhone , and Apple store is ad selling iPhone . Warrently and all issue will go back to Apple store

Great info, certainly very helpful as I am contemplating to get it from a PI as well.

If possible, can pm me the PI u bought it from?

Thanks

So u mean AD and PI took the car from same source but AD able to change the language to English.
So AD took made in Japan Vezel and change english and logo to become HRV? So those buying HRV is actually buying JDM car?

HRV is made in Thailand which is sold by AD and vezel is made in Japan which is sold by PI.
JDM is really made in Japan.

Pi source cars from the world that is right hand drive and can be sold in sg .
Ad is specific Singapore representatives of the car brand like Honda , and spec and such to Honda requirement. I don’t understand why ppl so obsessed with Japan made car . Nowadays a lot of cars are outsourced to Africa like mercedes c class and below . I don’t see jazz any inferiors to fit in anyways

So u mean AD and PI took the car from same source but AD able to change the language to English.
