There are memories behind every mile in a Honda, and we’d love to hear yours. If your odometer has reached a notable milestone, this is the place to share your journey with others who have done the same. Congratulations—not every Honda travels 100,000 miles and beyond. The stories here don’t represent the average expectancy of every Honda. Everyone’s experience is different based on vehicle, driving manner and conditions.

I purchased my CR-V used in 1999. I am a safety specialist who travels extensively, at the time all over Central and Western NY State. I learned early on that the service Honda provides at 30,000 mile intervals is well woth the cost. My vehicle ran relatively trouble free. I have had the timing belt replaced twice, only one brake job, some front end work, a new radiator, a new exhaust system and a couple of sets of tires. I drove the car in snowy weather on many occasions and I can honestly say I never slipped or slid one time. Three and a half year's ago as my daughter began college to study to become a Physician's Assistant, I let her have the car. She drives it conservatively and takes pride in its sharp appearance. When she graduates next year she has aspirations to buy a brand new CR-V when she is out making an income. We have been very satisfied with the value and quality of this vehicle. I have heard persons lament that buying a vehicle in its first model year is a mistake, that it takes some time to "get the bugs out". Not the case with our little CR-V!
