I bought a 2011 EX-L (no Nav) and we drive it every day. 100k miles in 8 years is about 12.5k per year. Average! Just one new set of spark plugs besides regular oil/filter changes and air filters (cabin filter twice). Oh and also one set of Yokahamas that lasted over 70k miles. Just mounted a set of Conti TrueContact EcoPlus 225-65R 17s. Quieter. I wish it came with Blue Tooth. An aftermarket bluetooth integrated with the radio but the microphone doesn't work. Oh well. Otherwise, the car has been comfortable and dependable, as we expected. We plan to drive this car at least another 100k miles!

Nice! I love my '07 (also Gen3) no Nav AWD, w/92k miles. I do plan a full audio upgrade, with head unit, amp, speakers, and sub, which will also have a back-up cam, Bluetooth, etc. Be sure to show us some pictures once you have 5-10 posts.

Congrats on your trouble-free run to a 100k.

I have a 2016 EX-L and although I am quite a few miles short of 100k my plan is the same to get to the first 100k and just keep on driving. Eventually I would like to consider getting something with a little more towing capacity but I might be able to convince my wife that her next vehicle should be the one that meets that want.

Congratulations on reaching the 100k mark! I was just curious if you have changed out any of the other fluids like brake, transmission, radiator, power steering? It is interesting to see how different CRV owners do general maintenance. I was just corresponding with a CRV owner with 130,000 and he has only changed out the oil and says his car runs well.
