I was going to buy the same model as you are thinking about, but I went with Mazda CX-5 instead and love it! If you still love your car and it doesn't need any immediate work, I'd say keep driving it till the wheels fall off! Any of these SUVs are NOT going to drive like a Go Kart.My current car is a gold 1993 Honda Accord SE with 185,000 miles - looks like a new car - drives like a "Go Kart" - I love it - dealer tell me it's only worth $400!
My 16 has one. I swear it's a nicer engine after 38k than new. Super simple.The 2.4 is a solid engine. The current LX has a carryover engine that has been around since 2015 for the CRV and 2013 for the Accord. Very few issues with them and a lot of high mileage Accords already, so that's the one I would opt for.
