My wife's 2017 CRV EX-Navi with almost 40K miles runs almost flawlessly with only a battery failure @ 35K and worn tires at about 40K to its discredit. Battery replaced with new Honda 100 mo. for no charge under warranty. What problems are you having?

We purchased a 2017 Touring (58k) in December and so far it's been great.....no issues. I am running a bottle of Techron every other tank to help out the injectors, but other than that, so far so good.

Kind of vague here.

Vague questions and statements beget vague answers. And there is a LOT of junk information about CRVs on the internet.

Regardless what you may have read on the internet, there is no notable reliability difference between 2017s and 2018s. Early issues with the 2017s and 2018s were addressed by field campaigns by Honda to correct any issues at no charge to the owner.

Miles, service records, number of owners, Title History..... are all major factors when considering a used vehicle. Much more so than any early and now largely corrected issues with the first two years of the generation5 CRVs. The single biggest unknown with a used vehicle though is how was it treated in driving by the prior owner(s). If it was driven like a throw away rental vehicle... it is more abused and hence more worn out.
