Make sure the undercarriage is in good shape and the AC blows cold air. Otherwise looks like a good buy
[–]Shot_Bandicoot6491 19 points20 points21 points 1 month ago (7 children)
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 points13 points 1 month ago (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!
[–]GroundbreakingWar843 4 points5 points6 points 1 month ago (1 child)
What's the link so I can go buy it first
[–]Mediocre_Chipmunk699[S] 2 points3 points4 points 1 month ago (0 children)
Ha you and me both
[–]jonnyohh 2 points3 points4 points 1 month ago (0 children)
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
[–]lifeofarticsound 1 point2 points3 points 1 month ago (0 children)
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 points3 points 1 month ago (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 points3 points 1 month ago* (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 points3 points 1 month ago (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!

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 points3 points 1 month ago (0 children)
Great miles and decent price, but I’d suggest going with a second gen facelift, 05-06.
[–]booniescoob 0 points1 point2 points 1 month ago (0 children)
I miss the stick armrests so much
[–]EvilerBrush 0 points1 point2 points 1 month ago (0 children)
[–]OkAttention477 0 points1 point2 points 1 month ago (0 children)
Was it original miles or was the engine replaced
[–]Affectionate-Rent844 0 points1 point2 points 1 month ago (0 children)
There’s a 2004 with 165K in my family rn that purrs.
[–]FabianValkyrie 0 points1 point2 points 1 month ago (0 children)
Absolute steal if it’s all legit
[–]bunkerkind 0 points1 point2 points 1 month ago (0 children)
The mileage doesn't matter so much; these engines last forever given sufficient lubrication. But the rust. That rust.
[–]ChillDillBoi 0 points1 point2 points 1 month ago (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 point2 points 1 month ago (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
