Hello Fellow CRV Neighbors,

Have you all seen this video of a man driving his CRV here in the US (Tulsa, OK) and hitting 980,000 miles? This is mind blowing to say the least. These CRV's are amazing. I know they are known for longevity but this is beyond anything. No engine or transmission work performed on this CRV. So, just take good care of your baby and it most likely may outlive you LOL. I am only at 122,000 miles, so my CRV will absolutely out live me. I wonder if anyone here has made it to 300,000 plus miles? What a vehicle!

There are a lot of things to take into consideration to make it to that mark. The guy must be a courier. To average 100k for ten straight years is no small feat. Looks like he was still getting close to 30mpg too. That in itself is a pretty good trick. I figure he must be running premium gas, and he must have some things like tires and maintenance choices down to a science. I'm a retired truck driver, and I can tell you a big truck is pretty beat up by that mark, and has spent plenty of time in the shop. So is a spinal column.

I'm thinking about switching over to premium fuel, depending on what gas prices do in the near future. But, being as how I'm retired and put relatively few miles on my V, it wouldn't cost me that much, and might be worth it in better fuel mileage and performance. I need to sit down and run some numbers on it to figure out the fuel cost per mile first. But based on what I have seen, if I can get close to 30mpg the cost might even out. I am going to run a full tank through and see. My '07 has just under 93k on it now. If anyone else has done this I'd be interested in seeing your numbers.

Oh, yeah - my ex still has her old business vehicle, an Accord wagon, with over 300k on it, still runs fine. She keeps it around for family members to use when they need a loaner. Most of them drive Hondas too.

Unfortunately, there is probably little reason to mention the 1.5L turbo engine here, as I seriously doubt any of them will even remotely achieve any real longevity. I don't even really see any of them making it to 100k.
