Welcome to the forums.

Unless there are unknown mechanical issues you should be pretty good with reliability. I think someone has whole maintenance checklist but the tl;dr is change fluids, tyres, and under the hood battery (load test first) if you cannot determine when it was last serviced but you put an additional 2K in it so you most likely did that already.

Thanks! Checked all the basics and seems mechanically good. Only problem that has developed is the Belt tensioner bearing needs replacing, it sounded very poor before I took it to the shop!

That looks Amazing for a 10 year old car. Heck it looks better than some new cars too! I'm sure it was very well taken care of.

I've used my car for Amazon deliveries a few times.

It was a tight fit for sure, but it worked well. The higher MPG also helped out.

Initial Vehicle Report - Rapid Car Check
Well...probably wasn't with that many failed inspections and amount of advisories. Hope SwiftyNI you're aware of this...
Car came with a heap of history, receipts etc for all the work that's ever been done on it - all honda authorised dealers too! I was really impressed with all this which is why I chose this one over other examples.

Ha! This looks exactly like how I have mine during deliveries.

They are impressively good little pack mules.
They are. I was able to fit an entire mini fridge still in it's box and some other stuff around it. Also I once fit in an entire beach cruiser bike without removing any wheels or anything. It was a challenge, but I got it in the end.

It seems to be relatively minor things though. A bit of rust here and there, worn out brakes, and the rubber boots on the ball joints being damaged. The boots on all of my car's ball-joints are torn open so I should probably replace them soon, especially the lower control arms since I can't replace the ball joint on its own. The corroded coil spring is a bit worrying, though.

I just wanted to point, that this vehicle probably wasn’t owned by an enthusiast. My car has 14 advisories since first inspection and this is an average comparing to other CR-Z I was checking. In this case 50 advisories is quite a lot have to say. Most important the owner is happy with it ;)
