FR-V owner saying hello.

Hi Folks,
Seems I have been here ages and never posted, how rude !
Anyway think I should say hi and thank everyone for a great site.

Have been driving the i-CTDi in an FR-V since I bought it new in December 2005 (55 plate), and what a great car it has been, despite being T-Boned by a numpty in an Escort van at 6 months old

Car and engine have been amazingly reliable, just about to have the third clutch fitted at 190,000 miles and thinking I should get the uprated one as also pondering the Celtic offer as down near them in a few weeks.

Mad ?

Probably, but I am sure they have done engines over 200,000 so mine is nearly run in.

So far, the car has never broken down on me and left me stranded, even when the auxiliary belt bearings made a horrendous screech (and then went silent again as they became swarf) it still went until I got it into the garage a few days later, whereupon, the remaining bits just fell out as they dismantled them

Wish they still made this fantastic car.

David

Hi David!

I too drove a 2.2 diesel FR-V. It was a brilliant car. Nice to know fellow enthusiasts around
