10 years and 130K miles still strong (with caveats)
By ruckerz on


1999 Honda CR-V LX 4dr SUV


Bought this car new and still purrs like a puppy ten years later.

Things to keep an eye out on
[1] Automatic transmissions, don't forget to change that oil regularly.
[2] I had to replace the radiator at around 90,000 miles. It developed a crack in the cheap plastic casing in the front right below the fill port.
[3] Lube that rear differential regularly.
You'll definitely need to change it if you notice that tight turns at low (5 mph) speeds causes a humming from the rear.
[4] ADJUST VALVE CLEARANCES early and regularly! The cylinder heads on the first generation CRV's are soft aluminum and the valve seats can recede into the head cooking your valves and a very costly repair
