Jack for Honda CRV

I have a 1998 Honda CRV that I just found out has no jack. Will any Honda jack fit this car? I seem to be having a hard time locating one specific to the CRV. Thank you

Any screwjack or hydraulic jack will work fine. Get a good heavy duty one.

I don’t recommend scissor jacks because I think they fall over too easily.

Be sure to read the manual about where to place the jack. If in doubt ask here.

Yes. Any Honda jack should work. This is called a common part. Which means a manufacturer of a vehicle selects a design for something like a jack and applies it to all their vehicles, and for many years. This keeps the cost for something like a jack for the vehicle down.
