Can anyone give me an honest opinion of one of these? Looking at possibly getting the 1.8 ivtec version. Good points, bad points, reliability, things to look for?

I'd forgotten about this too :laugh2:
I think we want to go newer, the last frv was around 2009 (I think). She likes the Kia Sportage, we test drove one, she's a bit concerned the rear window is quite small. I guess one with a reversing camera would help. Ford Kuga and maybe a CRV but they tend to hold their prices.

The main selling point with the frv other than the usual Honda quality is the fact that it seats 6 in a relatively small body size, if you don’t need that particular feature then as you say it’s getting a bit old now.

For us although the children are older and we don’t need that many seats, we have moved the front middle seat all the way back and because of the flat floor the bloody dog sit there now, so guess we’ll be sticking with it for a lot longer.

I have been considering a K swap with my charger in one ;-) we loved the 3 seats in the front and the large boot too. best practice car I think I ever owned.

Best car I've ever owned. 2008 2.2 diesel EX. Bought in 2009 with 4,500 on the clock. 145,000 miles later and it's difficult to find a car to replace it's all round ability and TARDIS-like interior. It has some rust and a slow oil leak which I can't locate. It has been utterly reliable. It's still on the same clutch. It had a new CD player under warranty. The ride isn't as refined as modern cars. Equipment is basic in comparison but I will genuinely miss it when it's gone.
