Thread: What is the Average Life of a CRV

  1. #1

    Default What is the Average Life of a CRV

    I am wondering if anyone know the
    typical life of a CRV in terms of
    years and miles?

    Just curious.

    Since the CRV has been on the US market for only 8 years, it may be hard to tell the average age. I suspect more CRVs have left the road due to crashes than to wearing out.

    I think Uncle George had well over 300,000 miles on his, and still running strong.

    Any car (even domestic) can be kept alive for a very long time. How much money are you willing to put into it? If you are asking how long will your CR-V survive without regular maintenance, I say 50,000 miles tops. Then oil will turn into tar, or just burn off and seize up the engine. :-)

    Maintenance cost will go up as the car ages. If you are willing to maintan a vehicle, it will last for a very long time. There are million mile Volvo's and Honda's out there.

    I have an 88 Prelude Si 4WS that still starts on the first crank. The body is starting to rot, but it drives like a sports car it was made to be, even though it is 17 years old.

    the question is bst kept a secret. your crv can last 1 sec- many hours of run /idle time-Sorry not a boat, milage time if you like the car it will hold its 100k maint. time to the T unless you are not a scheduled person.

    The CTV television show W-5 uncovered an Accord that was being resold on a lot and the dealer said it had something like 125,000 Km. It had unusual holes in the dash, so they did a search and found out it had been a T A X I , and the last _reported_ mileage had been 540,000 Km. (details are weak at this moment)

    I nearly bought a '97 V with 290,000 Km (that's only 180,000 miles) and it was still tight, with no rust and perfect compression.

    The taxi was probably getting past the 'break-even' point, so they were flogging it. I don't see any reason that my Gen 1 shouldn't go to 20 years, barring accidents. Whether or not I'll be the driver is unclear . . . . . :-)

    I put 180,000 miles on my 94 Accord before trading it for my CRV. No major problems, ran like the day I bought it with 23,000 miles on it.

    I'm at 158K on one '98 CRV, and 143K on the other '98 CRV.

    Nothing major, CRV #2 just needed a new igniter last month.

    The plan from the beginning was to get 2 250K vehicles, but as petroleum runs out, maybe these will be my last fossil-fuel vehicles.

    225K

    Less than a week after putting new Michelin Radial XTs on her, she lost the brake pedal the other day; turns out the brake lines failed, front and rear. While under there, the techs found the rear trailing arm damper bushing needs replacement, front right strut leaking a bit, oil pan "weeping" right through (how this wasn't noticed when the oil was changed two weeks ago is beyond me), and last but not least - the fuel lines are shot. Looking at a $3K bill; this is borderline worth it in my estimation, but I guess I'll get past 250K after this.
