I’ve got a 2001 Honda CRV with 220k miles. I love this car. Very little rust, just a small patch on both rear wheel fenders and the interior is in good shape. I live 2 miles in on a gravel road so the dust and debris can be hard on a car and I must have all wheel drive, oh and I commute 90 miles rt each day.
So here’s the dilemma. I just took it in for a check up and a few minor issues. They did a complete check on it and came back with a $3000 estimate. This includes timing belt (I did change this at 100k but obviously its time for it again), water pump, some ball joints, brake adjustment, air conditioner maint., stabilizer end links, tune up, valve adjustment, new belts, cooling system flush & cabin air filter and new starter.
Is this overkill?? Is an 11 yr old car with 220k miles on it worth putting that much money into?
