Hello Just joined your enormous forum. Bought an FR-V with the 2.2 diesel in August which replaced the wife's crappy 3-door Corsa. I like it. Got it from a dealer after noticing it had Michelin tyres all round. It's now on 118k but I'm hoping to wind it far further than that. I think it's a basic model - no cruise, steel wheels, cloth seats. I'm glad about the steel wheels cos I hate cleaning alloys. I'm a Mercedes 190 nut, the Honda is our family car. I've got a diesel 190 that used to be my commuting workhorse and is now on axle stands (for nearly a year), and a late petrol model that I got very cheap (head gasket needed doing) but is a little beauty. Came across your site after looking for a guide to changing the FR-V's fuel filter. After driving it a few months I'm finally going through the car and giving it a proper service. Just caught the front brakes in time - pads are like wafer biccies. Tyres are almost finished too. Coming from a RWD car you notice how front-heavy a diesel FWD car is. Just one question so far - where's the coolant drain plug on the engine block? Here's the FR-V, but the kiddy screen is now gone. awful thing!
