this is the first big expense for the car in 5 years, and 150K miles
so i can't complain...of course it's a crap shoot...throwing good
money after bad?

eh? did you have a ford before this? i'd guess so based on your fears.

bottom line: get over it. this is a honda. google this group for high
mileage stories.

actually a chevy...blazer. lasted 105K before the tranny blew. but the
honda's been amazing. less maintenance in 150K than the chevy had in
50k...

sounds like this is a keeper

Who the hell is telling you to replace the shocks at 150K miles? They
should last *well* over 300K.

Default Re: 2000 Honda CRV time to replace?

cars will always be an expense. But look at it this way , you could get
new tires and timing belt for $1000+ or you could get a new car at $20k
+..you do the math. Even a new car has expenses. As long as you change
oil when needed you will be fine. And heck swap in a good low mileage
motor for $3-4k if needed..but doubtful. Hell for that matter taxes on a
new car would be over $800.. Cars are rarely cosidered investments as
more of an expense. But who knows 20-30+yrs from now we'll see civics at
the TV auto-auctions catching $100k "Look at this man its a Type R."
oooh ahhh ehhhh eeee ohhh yaaaa ahhhh ooooo mmmmmmm yes yes yes oooo yes
mmmm.......ok i got carried away there. Just say no to Ford! ...unless
you need a truck F-150's are pretty good.

Yeah I still have originals on My 1993 Del Sol. I can take sharp turns
at 50mph no problem...its fun watching the vehicle behind me suddenly
fall waayyy back in the same turn.
B18c1 w/custom turbo, ac ,nice daily driver tune. Weight 2100 . Lots of
carbon, full interior though.
