"I love this car.
I bought it with 135K and now it has 160k.
I have changed the oil and tie rod ends, and have driven.
Also added a driver seat armrest because of the manual trans.
This is the safest feeling Honda I have owned.
The only gripe is that the engine needs a little more power, but there is no way
l I am getting rid of this car until 300K."
"Had this 1997 CR-V for 10 years now and it's been an excellent vehicle, just regular maintenance has kept it trouble free. Approx 24mpg overall, even with 107k miles on it. Not the most comfortable vehicle for long trips but fine around town and for trips of a couple of hours or so. Don't expect sporty performance If it has the automatic transmission but it's more than adequate. Overall probably the most reliable car I've owned, and that's been quite a few"
"bought my '98 used in '04. it now has over 120,000 miles and runs great. only major repair has been just recently (had to replace the catalytic converter). keeping up with scheduled maintenance i have heard people get 250,000 miles out of their CR-V. a little noisy in the cabin but otherwise i love everything about it."
