HR-V Info Request

Hi, I was thinking of taking my CTR off the road for the winter and buying myself a cheap HR-V as a winter hack. Has anybody got any experience with these or know what I should look out for when buying one?

I know that not all are VTEC but I'm not sure what year that all changed. Any info would be greatly appreciated, thanks.

I stand to be corrected here but from memory
both engines 1.6 (non vtec) and 1.6 vtec were available pretty much through out it's 6/7yrs of life.

The vtec engine had the part time awd and the other engine was just 2wd.

If you do buy one be sure to get a good set of winter tyres for it

Thanks for getting back to me. I think I need to do a bit more reading up on this.

If anybody else has more info it would be great to hear from you too.

Both engines came with part time. 4wd, you could get an optional 2wd version, but was rare here in the UK.

Things to watch for?

Grumbling rear diff, oil change cures that, easy DIY.

Slipping take up clutch on the CVT box, mine went tits, but Honda repaired it FOC as a service recall.
