    Hi all

    I have just traded in to buy a 2009 FR-V diesel.

    To be honest, I didn't know much about the car as a whole, but saw a nice looking 58 plate model with one previous owner and it fitted the bill for our family of 6.

    I was looking at all types of 7 seater and had no idea this car existed, but the 6 seat lay out without losing all the boot space was the perfect answer.

    I am looking forward to picking her up later this week and hopefully enjoy lots of motoring and family holidays in her.

    Hey Tucker a lot for FR-V owners have said exactly what you have experienced, it's like the car everyone forgot and now finding out its a cracker. Looking forward to see your new ride on the club.

    Welcome to HK.

    Welcome to Honda Karma @tucker
    Congrats on the new purchase !
    FR-V is a cracking car, she'll serve you well.

    Keep her well serviced, the ICTDI engines prefer 6000 mile oil change intervals.

    Thanks. I am a firm believer in keeping clean oil in a car. I will be looking to do it myself twice a year.

    Am I right in thinking this car has a timing chain rather than a belt, so it's maintenance free?
