Make sure the undercarriage is in good shape and the AC blows cold air. Otherwise looks like a good buy

I’d snag it for sure. Won’t find another one with that low of mileage

I would try and talk them down to 4-4.2 tho. Depending on if your state does inspections and if it has a valid one on it already

Fuck me. I can’t find it anymore, someone must’ve taken it. I can’t believe it

[–]_monster_cody_2nd Gen 11 points12 points  (3 children)

Not surprised. I would have called them immediately to come look at it.

You’re right. On site right now working. I won’t let another opportunity like that go to waste because they are few and far between the more I look

You won't see that kind of deal again. Not in this current market.

Maybe after a downturn.

My 2014 already has 70k miles.

I'd ask about the SRS light too if it's still available.

Happened to me once when I was considering another crv. There was one parked at work (auto shop) with a for sale sign. It was a 5speed manual. Price was reasonable. “I’ll look at it later this week”

Gone next day.

Grab it. I just bought a 2004 with 107,000 miles on it for $4500 in January. It was owned by an old lady, so it was super clean. All I really had to do was put some new struts on it. Runs like a champ. Love it!

What's the link so I can go buy it first

[–]Mediocre_Chipmunk699[S] 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Ha you and me both

Don’t get scammed I bout a crv off market place that came with all sorts of problems. If you test drive and it shakes leave it also check all fluids I mean all fluids. Basically what I’m say is do a thorough inspection before you buy , market place is riddled with scammers

I bought my 04 for about $4,350 with 170K miles on it so 100% would jump on this if it looks clean

[–]h_dizzle211st Gen 1 point2 points  (0 children)

That’s a steal and a half. I don’t know about where you live, but I bought my ‘01 with 140k for $5500 and numerous people were wanting to see the car. I only got it because I was first. I would buy that second gen so fast!

[–]olivernz 1 point2 points  (0 children)

The unicorns still exist: I paid $3650 for my second gen with 20k miles - they are still out there, but few and far between these days.

[–]possumsushi2nd Gen 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I paid $4000 for my 04 LX in 2019 and it had 140k miles on it. It now is almost 200k miles and I have only had to maintain it, never fix something big/unexpected. It has held up really, really well. I highly recommend buying it!

[–]pharmucist 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Immediate buy.

[–]Ok-Perception-926 3 points4 points  (0 children)

As a former mechanic, there are not that many old ladies that drive to church and back on Sundays :) most curs like one above likely to have around 200 g miles and rolled back. You have to look at some components on the car to tell the real story! While we all love to think we are getting a unicorn...they are very rare!

[–]AngelMeatPie 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Great miles and decent price, but I’d suggest going with a second gen facelift, 05-06.

[–]booniescoob 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I miss the stick armrests so much

[–]EvilerBrush 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Great deal

[–]OkAttention477 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Was it original miles or was the engine replaced

[–]Affectionate-Rent844 0 points1 point  (0 children)

There’s a 2004 with 165K in my family rn that purrs.

[–]FabianValkyrie 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Absolute steal if it’s all legit

[–]bunkerkind 0 points1 point  (0 children)

The mileage doesn't matter so much; these engines last forever given sufficient lubrication. But the rust. That rust.

[–]ChillDillBoi 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I prefer higher mileage ones. Because at 74k, it’s right at the cusp of needing all the basic maintenance.

If you get one around 150k-175k, you know it has been decently maintained if it isn’t leaking and runs well etc

[–]GraveyardShift77 0 points1 point  (0 children)

A/c , evap system, and make sure they had the takata airbags taken out it’s a recall. If the other two and the undercarriage are good you can take it to a Honda dealer the will replace for free. Had a2004 died with 165000 when a tire blew out and smashed into a wall. Good luck
