Ask Smithy Xtra Honda CR-V engine life

Is it reasonable to expect to get 300,000 km from a 2.0-litre or 2.4-litre Honda CR-V engine before it needs a major overhaul or replacement?

The life expectancy of any engine is largely determined by how well it is maintained. The Honda engine, like all modern engines, requires regular servicing with fresh oil and new filters; if that’s done there’s no reason to believe it wouldn’t do 300,000 km and more.
