HRV opinions

anyone had anything to do with these? as some of you know i cant have any mods until i buy the mrs a 4x4 and she quite likes these, i know the engine is as good as gold and will avoid the auto box. so what do you know about them? i can buy this now which means my mods can start

I was thinking the same as I have the opportunity to get one v cheap.... A black 3dr 51 plate. Bodywork is sound apart from some small scratches, 4 new tyres and engine is silky smooth.

Sweet, interior is a bit bland, but they are pretty bullet proof

My wifey had the same one years ago, supersonic blue.

Cracking motor, hers was the two wheel drive though.

Had the windows tinted and it looked mint after a good clean and wax.

Had it 3 years and all it ever needed was brakes,tyres, exhaust centre silencer and your usual service etc.

Quite a funky interior for its time.

Yep, said it along the tailgate plinth.

Pretty nippy for a big looking motor.

i seem to remember there was an issue with the rear diff and possible a recall.the only issues i had was the head lights where replaced under warranty due to misting up and the seal between the roof and spoiler was replaced due to it hanging out.i liked the car but was too small for a main family car,would make a great second car,i was looking down this root last year but couldnt find a cheap one.
