Advice for buyers

What should I look for in a used Honda CR-V estate?

This CR-V has been the subject of two recalls (one relating to possible damage to the sidewall of the tyres, and the other concerning the seat belt anchorage), but both affected only tiny numbers of cars.

There have also been reports of cars cutting out or losing power, with the exhaust gas recirculation valve to blame. Examine the service records, and if it hasn't been replaced, insist that it is.
