I don't even use the dealer here. I do my own oil changes on the Honda - its pretty easy to do.
#6920 of 6928 Which year used CRV?
May 06, 2013 (2:10 pm)
Am looking to purchase a used CRV soon. Probably from carmax as they have a limited warranty. Am open to year and can afford up to a 2011. I hear certain years are 'avoid' years.
Am looking at the 4wd version. Any input would be appreciated.

The CVR resale values are so high that it's best to buy new. You'll get a "free" warranty, and neither sometimes-improper use and/or maintenance, nor the wear of several tens of thousands of miles. Don't pay for all wheel drive unless you would have substantial use for it.
I am quite happy with my 2005 CRV LX. No repair to date (admittedly, miles are quite low); even the battery was still good after 8 years (I proactively replaced it earlier this spring).
#6923 of 6928 thanks, but...

I think there are complaints on the newest CRV and a recall. I really don't have the ability - now retired - to spring for that high a car payment. Still looking used. BUT lots of miles on those used babies!!!
On top of that looking to get one made in Japan - versus mexcio or the U.S. Am reading a lot on line about problems with the latter 2...
UK definitely NOT

Don't forget the tire rotation.
I got new tires put on my minivan today and the shop checked my brakes, coolant, battery and topped off my windshield washer fluid. That was a nice freebie (although I paid, lol).

hey steve_ host and nice to have quick reply from a edmunds host,
not sure what you rubbere'd on your van since snow is not much problem in ne for us
i go for hydroplaning and really like some of the yokos or generals
my comment about that crv service in the comment here http://www.edmunds.com/honda/cr-v/2012/long-term-road-test/2012-honda-cr-v-20000- -mile-b1-service-complete-commentspage.html#comments i just want to say check dealer sites n coupons.
quote: (1) [i]I know that 0W20 synthetic is required for the CR-V[/i] and (2) [i]I picked up the CR-V about an hour later and was pleased to find the total bill did indeed reflect a discount: It was $139.07 with tax. That's right in line with the Edmunds.com Maintenance Calculator's suggestion that you should pay $145 for a 20,000-mile service on a 2012 Honda CR-V if you live in the 90404 zip code.[/i] (1) full syn is wrong as crv is listed per manual 0w-20 which can be a blend or full syn (2) i always check dealer sites for coupons so next time check dealer site for coupons "Includes: Change oil up to 5 qts.- Install Honda genuine oil filter - Multi-point inspection - Vehicles with 0/20 grade are $59.95" http://www.hondaofsantamonica.com/specials/service.htm (Multi-point inspection includes all that hose n brake checking stuff) 59.95+tax (59.95+(59.95x.095))=65.65 crv in the air doing oil so rotating tires=? edmunds payed 139.07 ipad & service advisor=fancy and less money in your pocket
sou cal i think edmunds after $60 santa monica honda coupon for oil change n car check maybe $20-40 for rotation so maybe $100 in so cal.
just leased LX and with 16's pumped the contys to 37 and now good steering
nice ride and hope you enjoy yours steve_ host

Yeah, your coupon doesn't cover rotations was my point. That's part of the 20k service, so you'll have to add that in.
I'm riding on Nokian WRG2s lately (and yeah, I'm in the UP of Michigan, and we get a bit of snow).
