    Hi guys!

    I just bought an used 2007 Honda FR-V 1.8 Automatic straight from a honda dealer!

    I took a big risk and bought it had 50K miles and full honda service history - lucky I just LOVE the layout! It is a very clever car and I think it will suit my family very well. I did hesitate about getting a 2007 car but I thought one can't go very wrong with a Honda? :Smile:

    I will be looking through the pages here over the next few weeks and I hope to learn alot about the car! I noticed on the motorway home today , it vibrated badly at seems to be the wheel alignment thing. Do you reckon I can get Honda UK to fix it for free? (I got car from Honda dealer)

    When my wife drove it , she commented the steering feels "heavy"? I did not really notice it? Is that normal?

    I am sure I will be here with some questions over the next few weeks and I thank you all in advance!

    Hello @naf123 and welcome to HondaKarma. Congratulations on your FR-V
    I am sure you will find plenty of info in the pages
    @chris2982 @Bones126 @SpeedyGee can answer your specific questions about FR-V but yes because you bought the car from Honda you should ask them to sort the vibration out

    Hi @naf123 Welcome to Honda Karma :Hey:

    Congrats on the FR-V, they are great cars.

    Re the vibration, it could be tracking or driveshaft issue, either way just take it back to Honda !
