Advice for buyers

What should I look for in a used Honda FR-V MPV?

The FR-V has a pretty faultless reliability record. That shouldn't come as a shock because Hondas fare well in customer satisfaction reports, such as the JD Power survey, and they're among the least likely to develop faults, according to Warranty Direct.

We're unaware of any major mechanical problems and the build quality suggests the FR-V is made to go the distance. Even so, give the cabin and load bay a thorough examination for signs of a heavy-handed family or over-exuberant load-carrying.
