This is a 1999 Honda crv. Maintenance was always kept up as it was my grandmas car for years until i got it last fall. It gets great gas mileage, and is a five speed. Its got 235,000 miles, but it has had many things replaced at 180,000 and up, runs great, and will last for many more miles of smiles. Its a steal at 2200 OBO, and dont be shy to make an offer, all i can say is no. The reason im selling is because im looking to get a nice bike at a good price for the end of the season, but it is my daily, so the miles will steadily climb. You can get ahold of me at [# removed]. Shoot me a text, or cal and leave a messge cuz i may not pick it up if i dont recognize the number. i need to sell as soon as possible. The names Jim, thanks









...a day later and 114,000 miles off the odo...

Bumper cover may be lighting, but the scratches in the corner of the front bumper seem to match.

I'm pretty sure Honda only built one silver CRV in 1999.

Why would someone bother messing with the miles on a 13 year old honda?

I guess I shouldn't have emailed the seller asking how long he had to run it in reverse for.

I have the ad on my home computer, I'll put it up later. It's some collision shop in Waterford with a few other cars for sale.

Because Hondas hold their value,especially with low miles.

200k '98 crv asking $3k

a lot of the ones between 100k and 200k are asking in the 6-8k range.

no, not a lot of money to some people. not worth a felony to most people that have a brain and a clean record.

to a shiesty car dealer... it's probably enough.

I was surprised the guy actually e-mailed me back. He said the car does not have 116k on it and that the cluster was changed and that it is already sold. Odds that he actually told the buyer (if it's really been sold) the cluster was changed and it really has 235k on it and not the 116k as listed?
