No serious problems with this car!

Changed all belts after 162.000 km...

I had to replace the drive shaft front left (162.000 km).

I had to replace wheel bearings front left (145.000 km).

I was surprised to spot rust beneath the spare wheel...

Apart from that, no rust at all so far!

General Comments:

It's sad that Honda had to stop the production of the HR-V!

I am quite pleased with this car!

It gives a bit of everything!

A low cost vehicle for demanding drivers!

Honda could continue the series with a 1.8 VTEC or 2.0 engine (diesel as well), better off road performance, ESP, cruise control etc.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
