In the secondary market there are a number of models that are significantly more expensive than their "classmates", and one of them is the Honda CR-V of the 3rd generation. Does the high price guarantee phenomenal reliability? The expert checked.
An expert from the Avto Plus channel said that the Honda CR-V is not a young car, it was produced from 2006 to 2012, so the high price tags on the secondary market are doubly surprising: cheaper than for 650,000 rubles, such a crossover is not to be found. To review the author got a four-wheel drive "Honda" in a rare red body, produced in 2007 with 111,000 km mileage – the owner asks 750,000 rubles for it.
Buying a dorestayling Honda CR-V, you have to remove the entire trunk lining to check for cracks in the rear wheel arches – many of those times are sinning with this. Also on the cars released before 2008, the luggage cover often rusts.
According to the owners' complaints, too gentle paintwork, “soft” glass, opaque chrome and short-lasting optics deserve criticism in all CR-Vs. One of the age-old "sores" of the crossover is the suspension of the head unit.
As a power unit for this model, only 4-cylinder 2-and 2.4-liter "aspirated" are available, the resource of which with proper maintenance will be 300 000 km – it is important to use only Honda brand oil and not experiment with analogues, especially with the viscosity of lubricant .
Every 90,000 km, you will most likely have to change the fuel filter, and after 15,000, check the condition of the spark plugs. And in order for the “automatic” to serve 200-250 thousand km, after 45 thousand it is necessary to change the oil with the removal of the pan and the replacement of both filters. After 80,000 km, a bulkhead of the slats is required, and after 50-70,000 stabilizer bars and tie rods can fall apart.
Another problem dorestaylingovyh copies – frail silent blocks behind. Brand shock absorbers withstand about 100 000 km. It should be remembered that for this off-road Honda CR-V is not adapted: with a long slip, the drive to the rear axle is “chopped off”.
The expert recommended to the owners of this model immediately after the purchase to look for high-quality service stations, where they have been working with Honda for a long time and know what analogs exist for branded spare parts and what can be saved, since the durability of the CR-V parts does not differ.
