    Hi all - I've just inherited my dad's old 04 Honda CR-V 2.0 SE Sport with just 70k on the clock FSH and in generally great shape. Its a step up for me size wise but am looking forward to the additional space and leather seats for a change.

    I have a question though. I've always had the timing belt changed on my cars at about the 50K mark - and I don't believe my dad did. i've read somewhere that the CR-Vs are fitted with a chain not a belt and that these are guarenteed for the life of the engine. Is this me just being wishful thinking ( hoping to avoid a costly bill) or is this right?

    Best, and a pleasuer to meet you all.

    Hi Paul, welcome to Honda Karma :Hey:

    Your 2nd Generation CR-V has a K20 i-VTEC engine, these engines are chain driven. They are indeed maintenance free, the caveat being you need to keep the car well serviced with regular engine oil changes.
