    Hi all,

    New to forum, so thought I'd say hi. You all seem to be a friendly bunch of people :Smile:

    I don't own a Honda yet, looking to go to a CR-V from a Passat.

    Hello and welcome to Honda Karma @stuffandblah :Hey:
    Have you found your CR-V yet?

    Thanks, Nels.
    Nope, not quite yet. Looking to get a used 2012 or 2013 2.2 diesel.
    Ideally would like a petrol given my luck with modern diesels (none of those Honda I might add), but petrol won't cut it when we want to go camping and when we get a trailer.

    Is there anything to look out for with relatively high mileage (60,000 - 80,000) CR-Vs?

    Plenty of threads/posts about CR-V's on here. I've never had one, so cannot give you first hand feedback.
    However, if you do go for an I-DTEC, look very carefully at not just the service history, but if possible, the type of journeys the previous owner did.
    e.g. Frequent short trips = bad. Frequent long trips = good.

    A tow bar = bad, as this puts more wear on the clutch and this can be very expensive if you need a DMF at the same time.
