  7. Aftermarket brake pads on a Certified Honda?

    Maintenance and Service
    We bought a Certified Honda 2013 CR-V in January of this year. It recently developed an issue with the rear passenger caliper seizing and causing the brake pad to wear excessively/abnormally. Consequently, the other brakes tried to compensate and wore down excessively as well. As I suspected...

    Problems & Issues
    We just picked up a 2013 certified CRV from our local honda dealership. All in all we love it. There was a couple of scuffs on the car when we inspected it, and we were told they'd be repaired before pickup. They didn't do as good as a job as I'd have hoped on the repair, but we still went...

  12. Is buying a certified CRV pointless?

    Shopping & Test Driving
    I've been scouring certified 2011 CRVs for a month now and the price difference compared to a brand new CRV is almost negligible. One dealer is selling a '14 CRV AWD LX for $22.9K total (minus taxes and title). I just looked at a '11 CRV AWD SE with 33K miles being offered for $18K. The car...

  14. Certified pre-owned vs. New - certified not a good deal?

    Shopping & Test Driving
    We were looking and it appears we can get a new 2013 for $24,500 or we can get a certified pre-owned with 25,000 miles for $22,750. Both vehicles are EX-AWD. It doesn't seem like the certified cars are a good enough deal compared to new, I thought they would be cheaper. Please advise.
