2000 CR-V: Advice on recommended repairs

At my 9 year (56K miles!) major service, these repairs were recommended: "rear trailing arm bushings due to tearing and cracking $476" and "fuel filter due to age $149". Is this reasonable wear and tear due to age (probably not due to mileage)? Not asking for online diagnosis, just opinions about validity of the recs. Thanks a lot!

If your fuel filter is in the tank $149 is reasonable, and beings its almost 10 years old it would be good to change it. The suspension bushings are probably due to be changed even though you have low miles the climate and everything wears them over time so it is possible. I would say if you have the money go for it, but its not like you need to rush out and have these repairs done right away.

You are on the right track, you can buy those bushings. Just go in and ask for the rear control arm bushings and they should be able to look it up and get the right ones for you. I have a 91 Camry, great cars.

Front control arm bushings


Aside from the bushings, the remainder sounds like semi-valid "busy work"... If you are at all mechanical, you can do the entire job far cheaper than the dealer is going to charge you....Pads...tops $40, clean and lube slides 10 minutes while you are there, Clean rear brakes...pretty much unnecessary but do it if you want (they have self adjusters) Bushings...If available individually, not more than $50... if on complete arms, likely about $350-400.. Bushings are pretty much "bull work" but you have to know what you are doing to get them out and back in without damaging arm.Most of what they are quoting is labor time.
good luck

2005 camry front control arm bushings


You have a lot of issues. Let me take each on one by one...

Front control arm bushings: In a word, unbelievable.
Maybe on a 1991 Camry, but not an 05 with 50 K miles. Nope. I would have to see it to believe it. I have YET to change any on any Camry 2000 and up. They simply do not fail. They might "look" bad, but I seriously doubt that they are bad. I have answered a question identical to this previously here at FixYA, and I had the golden opportunity to examine the exact vehicle in question, the owner and I were within 50 miles of each other. Same story, same diagnosis. She didn't need the repair, either. Besides, if they WERE bad, you would have SEVERE control issues with the steering, and tire wear of epic proportions. If you have neither of those 2 mentioned issues, you don't need the replacements.
Save your money.

Regarding the front brakes: The pads "sticking" in the brackets is unfortunately a common problem. The pads rust a bit, and they seize, and uneven wear is a normal result of the pads being "stuck". Personally, I think 320 dollars is a lot of money to just change the pads...The parts are like 53 dollars, and the labor is about an hour. I charge approx 145 dollars to replace ft pads, and I charge 20 bucks to clean and adjust the rear brakes.
Best advice: Go find another dealership. This one wants to rob you.

1998 Honda rear bushings broken. Noticeable toe in on rear tires.


Zone and District service Managers. Call your local Honda Dealership Service Dept. and ask for contract info for them.

Goodwill is given to people who get most of their service done at the dealer.What you need to do is write a letter to both of them, Same letter. In letter include when you bought this car and at what mileage, When the problem started occuring, What you have done to fix it, What problems this problem has caused. Also list any other Honda or Acuras you own current or previously.

If your lucky you live in a area with a easy and district and zone managers.
