Hello Paul, I am called Kelvin. How costly is the HONDA CRV 1998 in terms of fuel consumption and maintenance?
Hello Kelvin, the first generation 1998 Honda CRV with a 2.0 litre engine will give you an average highway fuel economy of 10 kms per litre thanks to a good combination of efficient multi point electronic fuel injection, double overhead camshafts and variable valve timing technology.
You can push the fuel economy bar to 12 km/ litre or more by fuelling with efficiency improving fuel saving petrol, driving sensibly, avoiding aggressive acceleration and harsh braking, keeping your engine and tyres in top notch service condition.
Honda routine service of fluids and oil filter maintenance is affordable. However the non fast moving parts for suspension, steering and body are expensive and sometimes difficult to find locally.
The used parts market tries to fill the vacuum but some parts ought to be new.
