How do I jack up a Honda CR-V?

I just bought a Honda CR-V, but the seller admitted that the tires will probably need to be replaced. I want to do this on my own to save money. How do I jack up my CR-V?

Putting the tires on a car yourself is a great way to save money! If you want to jack up your
Honda CR-V
, find the rear jack point. This is a piece of metal that can support the weight of the vehicle. It’s deeper in the middle of the CR-V than other types of vehicles, so you’ll have to get the jack a bit further in.
The vehicle also has jack points just behind the front wheels and just in front of the rear wheels. You should see a piece of metal sticking out. This is where you can jack up the car if you only need to replace one tire or this is where you can put the jack stands if you’re jacking up all four wheels.
Even if you’re replacing a tire, make sure to add checking tire treads and tire rotation to your
basic maintenance schedule
to ensure your car maintains the optimal level of handling and safety.
