What 100,000 miles maintenences need to be done?


Asked by Feb 10, 2014 at 05:19 AM about the 1997 Honda CR-V LX AWD

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

When I first bought my 1997 Honda CR-V, I took it to the dealership to get a once-over on it and the serviceman said I had a great buy, but there was a maintenence that needed to be done every 100,000 miles that costs about $700-$800 dollars that if not done can turn into a much more expensive problem. I lost the paper that this was on, so what I need to know is what maintenences are due on a vehicle every 100,000 miles? What could he have been talking about? I'm trying to set up to get the maintenence done and I don't want to be ripped a new one - help!

Hi! I also have bought CR-V 1997 AT in 2012. Odometer shows about 200K km, but it says nothing in Russia)) Your serviceman is absolitely right! You need to check/change some points, until you'll get serious problems. First of all, you need to change all the liquids - especially in automatic gearbox, engine, rear gearbox and steering gear, because you never know, when previous owner done this! Also it is good to change engine coolant and breaking fluid. After that it is a good practice to closely check all suspension and transmission components, especialy all ball joints for extra backlashes. Of course, every car has its own problems, so you need to go to service again (already with all the fluids)).
