  1. Well I checked the engine today and it is definitely a K20A9 (see photo). In fact I could have just checked the V5.

      That's interesting, did you have any problems getting insurance ? Reason I ask whenever I've looked, all the insurance search engines only list 1.8 Petrol or 2.2 diesel option against Honda FR-V.

      I used the car reg for insurance and did not have any problem. What year of manufacture did you enter? They stopped making the 2.0L from 2008.

  2. I think the FR-V was a much under rated vehicle. It's a pity Honda didn't persevere with an MPV, although I guess they'd argue the CR-V does a similar job, especially as there is no 7 seat option.

    Nice colour combination, hope she serves you well. Sure she will, after all...:sparta:

      I agree, it's a shame they stopped the 6-seater MPV. It’s perfect for travelling with kids!
      The engine could do with a little more grunt but for a petrol MPV it does ok.

  3. If it's petrol then it'll be an R18. There is no K20 engined UKDM model.
  4. If it was a import it would have been an auto mate. That is a UKDM and with the best engine TBH.

    Does your car have sat nav?

      Sorry I took the engine code from the handbook. I didn't check under the bonnet as it was dark. I'll correct it tomorrow :Smile:.

      Unfortunately it doesn't have sat nav. I really wish it did. What I miss the most though is an AUX input.

  5. Looking good.

    A K20 FR-V ... now that's a rarity in the UK :Smile:

    Is she an import ?

      I must have taken the wrong engine code (from the handbook) and I will correct it tomorrow when I can see it in the daylight ;-). Sorry for the confusion!
