    Hi there. Been lurking for a bit on the site, but finally got some time to catch up with stuff. I have a 2007 2.2 cdti FR-V ES as I am a housegrandad for 3 young grandchildren and needed more space than a rangie (and fuel economy as I had to give up work..) Very impressed with the engine and the way it goes. Hopefully I can contribute more as I learn more.

    Its a bit like Mission Control with 5 yr old grandson in the middle and his friend giving orders...He's into Thunderbirds and Captain Scarlet at the minute (No influence from Grandad then!)

    More like Thunderbird 2 from the amount of stuff it carries....

    I still cannot see why Honda dropped the FR-V :Foolish:

    Nor me, I tried all sorts and always found that most 7 seaters couldn't really get more than 6 comfortably, then you couldn't get much luggage in...pushchairs etc... It was also difficult to get access to the rear seats as well. Shame they didn't do a 4WD version as well....

    Welcome to HK @garf8v, the FR-V is a great car, like others I don't understand why it was dropped. My wife has her eye on one so may have one also at some point in the future.
