    Hello Everyone :Aghast:)

    I'm Rob im 33 from Milton Keynes...

    I've just about owned and signed up to every car forum in the UK and recently purchased a Jazz.
    In it's defence it's not a bad little car but sadly it's just too small with our new member of our family. Our son is now 8 months old and it's time for a bigger car.

    I'm here to read peoples problems, tips and ideas for our next purchase. A FR-V

    Be gental :Aghast:)

    Hey @RobsyUK and welcome to Honda Karma!
    Glad to hear that you are upgrading to another Honda from your trusty Jazz. FR-Vs are highly sought after Hondas and people love them for their reliability and versatility. We have quite a few members who own one and I think pretty much all aspects of the car are very well documented. Have a look at this link, you will find plenty of material on them including their traits and MPG figures etc:

    Here you can find a showcase of FR-Vs owned by our members

    Which engine are you planning to go for? Also, if you still have the Jazz, why not add it to the club garage? Once you have the FR-V the Jazz can get immortalized in the previously owned section of the garage ;D
    How to add your car? Well there is guide for that:

    If you can't find what you are looking for, feel free to ask and we will try and answer them as best as we can.

    Hello and welcome @RobsyUK

    I've owned my FR-V now for over 2 years and can say I am very happy with it. Its a 2.2 I-CDTI diesel and the MPG is good for the size of the car and the amount you transport in it. Drive it sensibly and you will get up to and Average of 50 MPG on the motorway, round town 35-40 depending on how hard you drive it. (mine has an economy map installed though)
    Not had any real issues with it yet, 80K on the clock now and has passed the last 2 MOT's with no issues to report.

    Thank you for the swift replies.
    I've posted in the FR-V section. We want an auto petrol but heard its quite sluggish - happy for an import.
