    My car

    Is a great car. I would even consider buying another as it looks graet and drives great. The interior is a work of genius with the 2 rows of 3 seats design and the build quality and reliability is great as you would expect from a Honda. You also get lots of kit for your money no matter what model you buy although the ES models or above are probably the best. The 2.2 CTDI diesel is a great engine as well. It has great fuel economy and lots of power especially around 60-70 mph where the mid-range power and accleration is outstanding. The 1.8 petrol engine is also very good but if you are going to buy one I would strongly recommend the 2.2 diesel. The car is comfortable and capable on any road from B-roads to motorways. Dealer service is great too as you would expect of Honda. Would I buy another? Yes without a doubt I would.

    My car

    I really, really like this car!! I've had it from new for 2 weeks and I am impressed with virtually every aspect of the vehicle. The overall build and feel of the car is of a very high standard. The cabin is classy and although initially I was a bit unsure about the three seats up front I now find it gives a roomy feel up front and allows for 'stuff' to be at my side when driving. I've read reports of poor vision and being tight against the driver door - rubbish I'm 6ft tall and 13.5 stone and theres plenty of room between me and the door and the vision up front is very good. The diesel engine is great and quiet for a diesel. With a familly of 5 onboard there's plenty of poke. The look of the car (mine is black with the es privacy glass which is almost black) is sporty and friends and familly all seem to rate it as a great looking car. So if you're looking for a good looking and top quality familly car this is it...you won't be disapointed....I'm certainly not.

    My car

    Having bought our FRV after owning 2 Volvo V40, 1 V70 and 1 V50. We find the FRV has the same quality feel and comfort. The 3 front seat layout is great for us as we also tow a caravan, We can fold down the back seats and use the space for all the awnings, deckchairs and all the other gear we take with us. Fuel economy is reasonable considering the trips we take, 26mpg towing our 1250kg caravan,36mpg commute and 42mpg on solo trips.The car has quite a sporty feel, being very agile and secure in the corners. Performance is also good, get into the right gear and you just nip past slower traffic in a very short time even with a caravan on the back. We have owned our car almost 18 months now and have had no problems in 17000 miles. The car is comfortable on long journeys reasonably quiet and feels well made.

    My car

    I have owned this car from new with 45000 miles on the clock now. Strong virtues in all the important areas add up to an unbeatable combination in the market, currently. There isn't a better-looking MPV; strong performing engine with good economy; sure-footed handling; very comfortable & relaxed ride; considering the relatively compact dimensions, the interior space & layout swallows my family of 6, with luggage, admirably.
