    11yr Old Honda gets revitalized to NEW

    So a neighbor and good friend of mine owned a nice little Honda CR-V since it was new. In fact they bought this Urban Platinum Metallic 2010 EX-L in November of 2009 and have taken great care of it since. His wife was itching for a new ride thus they pulled the trigger and needed to part with this one. Trade value was good but Don has always tried to sell them on his own and it just so happens I was in the market. He's a great guy and let me have this for lower than what wholesale is on them and far, far below what they retail for in today's market. I couldn't say no, thus it's now going to be a family daily driver until late summer when my daughter begins to drive.

    I gave the it once-over but didn't go super crazy with it. It's my premium enhancement polish package with a dual layer CarPro Ceramic, Full Trim restoration and coating and both glass and wheel coatings too. Interior wise The same deal, my middle package not the full package. I restored the leather but the carpet honestly was like new so it just got a great vacuum and a light spot touch up around the pedals.

    It's only got 65k miles on it and was always garaged and never really driven in snow as they have two other AWD vehicles and Don chauffeurs his wife around like a queen.

    Looking forward to this one hopefully taking my daughter through college if possible.

    You dont have to hope much for a 2010 vehicle with 65k miles surviving for 5-6 years. Im driving an 04 with 160k on it and bet I get 3 or more out of it. That vehicle is pretty new.

    Looks to be in great shape. Use a good grade oil and change often and they will run forever.
