I’m curious how everyone’s doing? I’d like to see a “show of hands” regarding everyone who has a crosstour that tells the community: miles on the car, major maintenance expenses (whatever it was, “standard maintenance” is good if nothing big failed) and what year your Crosstour is.

Mine so far:

No major items other than standard, but lots of differential fluid flushing and the HVAC fan is starting to whine.

WOW, I wont be able to compete with Anmeet but i just discovered the reason my A/C want blowing as hard as i would expect. Pulled the cabin air filter and found a handfull of insulation laying ontop of the filter plus it looked like the filter had been chewed on. Im guessing this happened during the 3 weeks my car sat when i was down with Covid. other then that need to get my vibration at 40/70 diagnosed and repaired

I have 2014 and currently at 70,500 miles.

I don't know that these would be major, but they could've been costly if it wasn't for extended warranty:
  • Leaking belt tensioner
  • Lock solenoids
  • Door switches

Also:
  • Transmission, transfer case, and diff fluid change @ 35k and 70k
  • Brake fluid change
  • Warped front brakes within the first 3 months, went for PowerStop brakes. While they haven't warped, they're still spongy for my liking (just ordered Brembo brakes for the front)

Overall, this car has been great. Other than the stuff mentioned above, I haven't even replaced a light bulb on this car! I bought of set of LEDs to replace the ones I have, but haven't done it since they're fine for now and they're a bit of a pain to get to.

Late 2013 v6 4WD that just turned 77,777 miles.

Nothing major - just routine maintenance, drivers side door lock and rather annoying and irritating grinding on start (that was fixed by rotating torque converter last year per TSB A16-002).

Still haven't done plugs yet but did timing belt + tensioner and water pump (which started squawking on occasion this year) a little while ago.

I've got a 2012 V6 2wd with 267k miles.
Some notable repairs....
Catalytic Converter replacement at 180k
Replaced Vtec (vvt) solenoid assembly with spools on both heads at 201k.
Alternator replaced at 250k
Oil Pan and Oil Pump reseal at 251k.
Valve covers replaced at 251k.
I'll be replacing all 6 fuel injectors next week. Bank 2 long term fuel trim is far into negative territory while bank 1 is normal. With a misfire code on cylinder #4 and the coils checked out, I'll do the injectors 1st to see if it solves the problem.
I DIY so my expenses are parts only.
Using a VCM disabling device early on probably would have saved my cats. I recommend disabling the VCM asap.

2012 -EX-L - just at 100,000 so that means time for tuneup and timing belt change… that’s basically going to be 1200-1500
Last year I had to have my abs module replaced - was under extended warranty thankfully otherwise that would have been 1700… no other issues though
Just wishing they would bring this model back

I have a 2010 EX-L V6 4WD with Navigation and am currently at just over 203,000 miles. I bought it in 2013 with about 35,000 miles.

I'm not going to list the normal wear-and-tear stuff like brakes, batteries, fluid changes, and tires. Those will happen with any vehicle regardless of how it's driven. Those are a must. I'm going with the bigger-ticket items. And I'm too lazy to look through my receipts so I'm just going to give you the 30,000-foot overview on what I remember.

First major problem was the VCM-induced engine rebuild at about 75,000 miles. My dealership covered this. While they were in there, I had them replace the timing belt and water pump. I saved a few hundred dollars since they already had the engine apart.

I've had inner and outer tie rods replaced at about 125k miles because they were worn and Firestone couldn't do a proper alignment. A couple of hundred bucks to get them all replaced. I knew something was worn because the car would pull back and forth when I got on and off the throttle. I have the lifetime alignment package with them. I encourage anyone who keeps their vehicle for long periods of time to opt for that. For basically the cost of two alignments, you can keep going back again and again for alignment for the lifetime of your car.

Around 110k miles, the CEL came on. Something was broken. Honda fixed it for about $400. It was a long time ago and I don't remember what it was.

I then had an airbag sensor go bad around 150k miles. That was a couple of hundred bucks.

At about 190k miles, my AC wouldn't blow cold anymore. I took it to my local Mavis (formerly STS) to have them figure out what was wrong. After $1200 for a new compressor, condenser, and lines, they said it was fixed. Drove 1/4 of a mile and turned around to bring it back because it wasn't fixed. After two more attempts, they couldn't figure it out and gave me my money back. I took it to my Honda guys and they said it was likely dirt in a line that they managed to unclog. They charged me something like $250 for diagnostic and labor. So I got a whole new AC system for $250.

I've had, what I think is, the typical axle vibration at about 70mph. Feels like the rear tires are out of balance. It's been like that for years and hasn't gotten worse. I figure, unless something catastrophic happens, I'll live with it.

Had the second timing belt done about two years ago. And new plugs. While doing that, they replaced the tensioner. No water pump the second time around.

I think that's been all of the "big" stuff.

Mine has been great 2011 75K miles no issues. I have a tow dolly, towed three cars, changed the timing belt just now. It’s been a great car!

Have a 2010 EX-L with about 156k on it...owned since 70k. Only issue outside of scheduled maintenance was oil blow by requiring new piston rings, but Honda covered it despite being out of warranty. Other than that...had the timing belt replaced at 104k. Still running strong although I’m hearing a slight whirring sound that makes me think the wheel bearings are starting to go and the struts seem to be nearing end of life. Leather interior still looks great. Couple dash buttons had their backlights burn out. Been a really good car so far.

2011 EX, 163k miles. Had the front end shudder that I had investigated at 98k miles while fortunately still under extended warranty. New engine mount, new brakes, eventually new front axles. At one point the dealer put 2 front tires on them, most likely out of exasperation for my persistence to solve the problem. I didn’t pay for any of it other than wasted time.

I have a 2010 EX-L/Navi @ 210,000mi. 2 Timing belts, every 100k. Spark plugs, fluid Flushes, fuel Induction - all done by mileage or earlier. I had a brake caliper give out around the 200k mark. Fixed a top-end leak that was killing alternators left & right - it was the VVT Solenoid/Actuator on the front cyl bank. The worst is yet to come: Trans Mounts + Front Axles + Hubs/Bearings are on the calendar to fix the shudder.

Personally, I still haven't put more into it than I bought it for. Love this car

I have a 2011 EX-L with 160k miles. Mine had the misfire issue at 80K. Rings and pistons replaced on Honda warranty; had the timing belt and water pump replaced at the same time. A few years back I replaced the HVAC fan due to whining. At 150K it surfaced of code of oil delivery. The Spool Valve needed replacing. That was ~$1400 at the dealership.

Mine does have brake issues every few years. But I live on a gravel road that gets lots of mag chloride in the summer and salted in the winter and the car will sit periodically for weeks at a time in a damp freeze thaw condition. The brake mechanic is me because Honda brakes are so easy to work on so that might be a factor :)

Just general maintenance other than those items.

My previous 2012 CT only major issue at 80K was the front end shutter and burned through a set of brakes in 16K miles. Ended up getting new rotors, pads, and calipers. Covered under Extended warranty.
