Hi, I am a member of Honda Accord forum for 8 years. My daughter has a 1998 Accord, 250,000 miles, which she also had for 8 years and 100,000 miles.

I am looking for a CR-V for my daughter and saw a 2009 CR-V , $5,400 with 148,000 miles.
I haven't looked at it yet, but was surprised about a few things.

1) It does not have timing belt but uses a steel timing chain?
2) The ad says it is a AWD. Is that common, or is it an option?
3) Do the transmissions and engines typically last 250,000 if taken care of?

Are there any issues that are common with these cars? I am a fairly good mechanic but want to be prepared for any issues or quirks with CR-V's
( I kept my daughter's car running for 8 years. I am giving up now because the crankshaft seal is leaking and it is not worth taking the engine out for repairs).

Any other ideas or suggestions will be appreciated!

Ok, so how can I be sure about the condition of the transmission when I look at it?
In the past, I would pull the dipstick and see what color it is. In this case, no way to check for junk, unless the owner allows me to drive it home.

OH... That's the BIG thing about me. I keep a written maintenance log of everything I do to my cars.
No wonder people give me a strange look when I ask if they have a logbook.
and Yes... I am a baby boomer!

Ok thanks again for your inputs!
