Life after 200K miles: The Honda CR-V Gen.2
2002 CRV: Sell It or Run It Till It Drops?
My CR-V (see below) has served well. I drive on assignment, so I have lots of highway miles. One month, I drove 5K miles! Mobil 1 oil is what I use.
So Im facing this decision: sell it now (It runs great), or buy a new or late-model used one. Im wondering: what lies ahead for my CRV? What will go? What happens after 200K?
And after that, where do old CRV's go? Are they shot? Salvage? How far can you run one?
For example: has anyone here replaced and ENGINE? Last inspection I still had pads on my ORIGINAL brakes. but then, i dont use them much lmao! Gotta love those long country roads with a big iced tea and Bruce Robinson CD playing!
I do feel that things will start "going" on my baby. Im just wondering WHAT?
If I sell now, someone would get a vehicle that is prob good for another 30K miles - if they drive it local, it would be a great value. I have found a used CRV that is loaded for a decent price, but it has BLACK leather seats - I prefer cloth. Im thinkin: black leather seats + Texas sun = smoking Butte and I dont mean Montana lol
Sell or Run It Till It Drops?
