High mileage CR-V vs. Chevrolet?
I have a chance to buy a crv which had the valves adjusted and the timing belt and water pump replaced at 180000, plus all belts replaced then. It now has 200000 miles on it. I was afraid at first but a relative who drives Hondas said it ought to go 300000 miles without major problems. The dealer wants $4000 for it , which seems high for a car that could be on its last legs. It is extremely clean, free of rust, everything works on it and the engine sounds great, with no leaks anywhere. The previous owner was a mechanic at a dealership and says he preformed regular maintenance on it. I normally have bought Chevys and it seems incredible that this thing should have ANY miles left in it. My chevys were pretty well spent by the time they had 200000 miles on them. Should I pass on this crv, crv owners?
