Ah, Grasshopper. You must be a young whippersnapper. Back in the good old days of the US Army Jeep, there was a FWD low selector which locked all four wheels. One could rapidly scrub off the tires, if one was on pavement, but in snow or sand, they would all spin away merrily, throwing crap in all directions.
The Honda is much more advanced, and my Pilot Touring senses what it needs automatically, and is so smooth that I have not, in a year, even known what wheels were driven. And we live in the Sierra Nevada so it has had a few spins in the snow. It has a button to push, when in second, to lock all the wheels, but I have not had to use it, and I know better to never use it unless as a last resort.
As an aside my first army duty, as a second lieutenant was heading an experimental maintenance unit, following a 500-track combat command, for a week (no sleep) and it was amazing how many ways the Jeep drivers lost control in 4WD. M38A1s and M151s. They finally had to put out a rule that no one could use 4WD on any road (which makes sense, they just forgot.) Now I live close enough to the Rubicon Trail that I see all the wrecks coming through, and hear the stories. I think to myself, "been there, done that."
