Well, my newish (May 2005) CR-V SE with AWD passed the test! This week we
had big snow/ice here in the hills of Pittsburgh. The the 'V was a CHAMP
going up my driveway (garage at the bottom) with the stock DUELER tires.
Great vehicle. Better AWD than the Mercedes products IMHO. I still would
have preferred Michelin tires for ride and wear purposes, but the DUELERS
were great in the snow. (I'll get Michelins when these wear out). Anyway,
any of you thinking of getting a CR-V primarily for it's winter driving
abilites....it does that well!
I agree. I have a 2002 CR-V LX,with Michelin Ice snow tires.and yesterday
tried it for the first time in 22 cm/9 inches of fresh warm (28F) slippery
snow. I have 8 km of snow-packed roads to get to the salted pavement.
This is the answer.

come until 15:15. There went the work day (I did do some phone work,
but it ain't the same). In any case, at the end of my street they left
a 3 - 4 foot hard packed bank. The CR-V would have done okay, but not
