1999 Honda HR-V 1.6 4wd 1.6 petrol from UK and Ireland
A strange looking car, but very practical
Nothing major has went wrong with the car - slight rattles from inside the drivers door is the only major defect to date.
A strange vehicle to look at, especially because it is the bright yellow version, but drives like a dream. This vehicle gives you the ride height of a large 4x4 and the performance of a saloon car just the combination that I needed.
The car is a little heavy on the juice of such a small engine, but it is nothing that will break the bank.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

If the colour of the HR V is to feminine for you that's one thing, but you could solve your fuel issue by not thrashing the... out of it. Try a service every 5000kms/3100mile and you may receive the same results as my 540kms/336mile per tank... and yes I do get the honda dirty.

336 miles per tankful?
The fuel tank is 12 gallons so you're getting 28 MPG, just 1 MPG better than the reviewer you accuse of "thrashing" their HRV.
