Dangerous on slick roads
Everything on the car is in working order.
This car did not meet our expectations. The four wheel drive is called "real-time" and does not engage until you are already spinning a wheel. There is no manual override to engage 4x4 all the time.
The CR-V performed very very poorly in snow. We were quite surprised by the awful and dangerous performance. The vehicle easily slides, and as noted above, the 4x4 does not engage until you are spinning.
Driving off a paved road is difficult because the clearance is very low. And, if the surface is slick - see above for discussion of 4x4.
The interior is comfortable for most people, but is a bit small for me at 6'4" - the only issue is my knee hitting the dash, there is plenty of headroom.
The ride is rough, and the vehicle likes to jump around.
The cargo racks are set so far back on the roof that long cargo boxes will not fit, or they will block the rear hatch, making it difficult to access.
The vehicle seems to be a good commuter car for paved roads and good weather conditions. Fuel economy is good.
Overall, we are disappointed with the CR-V, and would not buy another one.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
