    How long will my CRV last?

    Serious question! I have a 2000 CRV, with 120k miles and has been pretty well maintained. I never see them with high milage - when do they generally call it quits? I've owned a few Mazda Protege-type cars, and they all seem to make it to 200k without any major problems. I realize this is a very subjective question, and you can keep anything running as long as you replace parts, but I'm more interested in a general sense, how long does the transmission hold up, motor, etc? I'm making a car decision at the moment, and don't know if it's worth keeping at the moment or not. I'm not able to buy a newer car at the moment, but I don't want to hold onto the CRV if it's going to die in the next year or two.

    Honda engines and transmissions are very reliable and if you don't beat on it very hard a CR-V will last your over 200,000 miles easily

    You can check out:

    High Mileage CRVs out there? - HondaSUV Forums - Discussion forum and bulletin board for Honda CR-V, CRV, Element, Pilot, HR-V owners

    Back in 2006, there was a guy with a 98 CRV that already had 275k miles.

    Thanks

    That's exactly what I was looking for. I've never seen one with such high mileage, but I know Hondas are outstanding in the realm of longevity. That's good to know, thanks much, this is a great forum!

    My '98 has 230, 000 KM on it. It needed work on the front end, I just did the differential fluid, and the timing belt is coming up. The tranny does this weird laggy thing, so I probably need to get that looked at, too. A lot of work for a used car, but I expect it to last a couple more years as a second vehicle with little depreciation. I expect to get it to 300, 000 KM

    you will get way more then 300 k miles but thats if you keep everything up to date and on schedule and you need too get the tranny noise looked at if anything get it looked at at the dealer pay dor the diag time and fix it your self but good luck man

    Honda's will last as long as you take care of them, barring an accident which crunches your car. My sister in law had an 1998 Accord with 378,000 Miles and it was running great up until the day a truck rear ended her and the insurance wouldn't pay to fix it.

    I plan on keeping mine will past the 200K mile range.

    You're Cr-v will probably run till the end of next week. Plan all your camping and stuff before then. Hondas have a reputation for being the least reliable car ever. The most reliable car ever was the 1st gen Ford Pinto and the last generation Ford Tempo. Honda is nowhere near their build quality, trade it in now.
