I Had a 2018 with the oil dilution and lack of heat issue. Thats gone, my son will be home from the Peace Corp in early fall and has his heart set on a CR-V. I'm seriously looking at getting him a 2016 with low miles. Do the 16's have any issues I should be looking for?

I like the 2.4L a lot better than the 1.5L turbo.

When I saw the 1.5L turbo in the 2017 - I knew that turbos make OD much worse due to turbo charging. So I got a 2016.

Every make of car with GDI is going to have OD. I do not let the Mileage Minder go below 50% before I change the Oil. I think at 50% the engine will last for 300,000 miles. Not so sure that the CVT transmission will but there are not an other choices.

If you only want an LX model - the US LX model still has the 2.4L engine line the 2015 and 2016 have, I wanted the Touring for the ACC and power hatch.
