    Red face Always been a Honda person, My 1st CR-V Ownership...

    I would like to introduce myself, my name is Adam. I've owned a few Hondas in my day from Civics to Integras. I've left the ricer (teggy) scene and recently purchased a nice 2001 Honda CR-V EX w/ 104k miles. I've utilized this site frequently since purchase of the vehicle. I normally join up the forums when I feel the site is right for the information I need. I've already used the forums to work on "Clock Repair" (removal/soldering) and "Cowl Water Leak" (passenger side leak). So far I'm in love with this CR-V and don't miss a second of the 91 Integra I have sitting now. Hopefully I can join one of the meets on the Mid-Atlantic side...

    Can't believe today it's been two years since I purchased this first gen CR-V on May 26, 2014... I'm truly happy with my vehicle and the reliability it has given me... I've hit 130k on the odometer and soon I will be replacing the timing belt, timing belt tensioner, tensioner spring, water pump, ac belt, power steering belt, alternator belt, valve cover (custom), valve cover gasket, perform valve adjustment to ensure the life span of my CR-V to last the years to come... I'm glad to have found parts to customize my CR-V to my liking over the years... Here's her transformation now:

    Good luck with that: Is it common that 2001 vehicles are up and running without problems (doing necessary service)? Or is it Honda? Was Honda CR-V better with gen 1 than later generations?

    I believe Honda has always had a superiority in quality before most Japanese vehicles today. I've always been fascinated with the B-series motors before the whole K-series engine came about. Most of the mint Hondas I've come across in my time have been very reliable as long as you give care in to the parts that gets worked through out time. When ever I see a Honda blowing smoke out the tail pipe, I automatically think ragged, red-lined, and/or poorly maintained. As long as these first gens get their proper oil changes on normal intervals and tuned up / valve adjustments, they run past 300k+ mileage. Some people will say that the second gen is the best, but in terms of less electronically driven parts, I believe the first gen is mechanically perfect. I love the first gen's body over the second, but to each their own.
