I started this post just after Christmas and jus thought I would let you know I have taken the plunge.

I have just bought a mk2 2006 Honda CR-V 2.0l i-vtec, one owner from new, full dealer history. I am going give it a good spray underneath and in the cavities with Lanoguard, put a set of cheap ‘Event’ all terrain tyres on it and see how it goes.

As I mentioned in my original post, most of my shooting now is on stubbles and pasture so I am hoping that it will cope.

Anyone had one and how did they get on with this ‘softroader’? Reliability and to be fair the fact that they ain’t too bad on the ‘rot’ stakes did it for me.

I bought virtually the same bus *** you in auto, back in Jan and has done everything I've asked so far ( dunno if the 4wd has kicked in or not ) , I haven't sprayed underneath tho and the tyres it came with are good for the summer. A little heavy on juice @ 25mpg but a good truck

Some years ago I decided to have a change from Land Rover and bought a Nissan Patrol. Comfort wise comparable with Range Rover. Good off road manners and reliable. My only real dislike  was to disengage 4WD you had to reverse at least a metre.

No need to reverse to get out of 4wd on the more recent ones .. couldn't bear to part with mine ... a travelling shed that will go anywhere, like you say ... comfortable too!

No where near as comfortable as my current Range Rover, but for its day I thought it was. Good off road too, but again nothing like current models.

Certainly has a bit of ‘vintage’ to it!!

The one in the picture looks to be a similar model to the one I mentioned in Africa...........but in FAR better condition!

I must have a thing for cars in sky blue, I had that quite a while, a sky blue Volvo 240 for around 12 years maybe more and now a sky blue Range Rover
