Hi Scotty,
My wife is in the market for a new car. However my question is which one of our two cars should we keep, the 2007 Civic with an automatic transmission and 145,000 miles or our 2003 CRV 4 wheel drive with a manual transmission and 260,000 miles. We purchased both cars new and have been well maintained, oil and filter changes every 3,000 to 5,000 miles and all other fluids and filters changed at or before the recommended intervals. Both cars run fine. The exterior and interiors are both in reasonable condition for their age. My main consideration is which vehicle is the likely to be the most reliable for the next 5 years or 100,000 miles.
