    Hi Everyone
    Just bought my first honda, a honda FR-V.
    Will take a bit getting used to but am loving the fact its so quiet.
    I bought a 1.8 es model as i do quite a few short journeys and the diesel wasn't suitable.

    :welcome: to HK @abs_n .

    :congratulations: on entering the world of Honda.
    Please do add your FR-V to the Club Garage as we'd love to see her. In the meantime, have a good browse around the site. You'll find plenty of useful information.

    Also I really want to get her cleaned up first, the interior and ac smell a bit funny, whats the best way to clean up the interior.

    Dealers are all different. A starting point is the Honda UK website. You can see some customer 'Reviews' for each dealership when you go onto the individual web pages.
    e.g. Colliers in Brum

    Honda do offer different levels of service -More information on this link.

    Personally, I've found Holdcroft Honda in Stoke-on-Trent to be excellent. They are our preferred dealership. We have many members who travel there from a fair old distance purely because they are trusted and provide the highest of standards.

    There are some sprays that can be used on the A/C system, but I'd start by changing the pollen/cabin filter.
    As for the interior, we've all got our favourite products. You will find more info in the Detailing and Cleaning section.

    Welcome to Honda Karma, fellow FR-V owner and fellow Brummy :Grin:

    Would love to see you car, as others have said :garage: Instructions here

    As well as Colliers, there is Listers Honda on Stratford Road.

    Not had servicing done at either as I do all my work myself but whenever I've used the Listers Honda parts desk (usually when I've forgotten to order something I need at the weekend from Holdcroft Honda) they have been helpful.

    @AccordCU2 do you have any experience with Listers ?

    Not been to Listers for a while but have used them for MOT when they used to be called Avonvale.

    Service department keep changing but young lad behind the desk is quite pleasant.
    Parts guy (forgot his name now) is really helpful but can't get any discount with him.I have tried on few occasions but to be fair he did give me Accord show plates for free.

    Welcome to HondaKarma @abs_n :welcome:

    There is an ever growing number of FR-V owners on here, it was such an under rated car.
