Hi first off just to let you know there is a bigggggg diffrence between 4x4 and awd, and if youve never owned either then you should do some research on both by gogling AWD vs. 4X4. Now with that said you must understand that you have just purchased a vehicle that is excenlent in the snow and inclimate weather but is NOT an off road vehicle. With that said the Cr-V is meant for everday all season use not adventures. Noooooooooooo car truck etc with any 4 wheel capabilities is the best in the snow or ice they all offer 1 thing in common best traction to get out of ugly situations. Lets be frank right now the weather is a mess and your stuck up hill and its been snowing for the last 7 hrs= in wish i had a 4x4 like a Jeep, now its been snowig for the last 7 hrs and theyve plow a little but the roads are a mess im gonna be ok because ive got my AWD system and it will work fine! if you are in fargo North Dakota then Buy a Jeep F-it Buy a Hummer! but anywhere else the Cr-V is just fine. Good luck

Front Drive Shaft

The transfer case for the front wheels is bad that is why they were removed in the first place. Most people don't want to pay that much money to get it fixed that is why they remove them and just drive it as a two wheel drive vehicle. If you want to fix it you will need a new transfer case you might try a used one but there is no telling as to if it is good or how long it will last.

Have a 2002 crv awd .Which wheels drive the car. LIVE IN ARIZONA. Drove car first sow. Wife car formerly now retired I drive. Car was all over the road. auto trans. 63000 mi.

The AWD means All Wheel Drive. Sort of the same as a 4 wheel drive. All the wheels have power at the same time. In a slippery road condition, all tires/wheels can loose traction at the same time causing loose of control - which would be normal. AWD does not mean traction all the time in snow and ice. It still has to be driven with caution and respect to road conditions. Hope this helps.

About the only semi-solution to your problem is weight and good tires. I used to fill the pickup bed with snow. Snow is free, heavy and always around when you need it and melts away when you don't.
Good tires are essential as no matter which kind of differential you have if the tires can't grip you won't go anywhere.

I too have a 2008 Toy Higlander Limited with 54,000 kms. this winter we have very little snow in Ontario and I found it very difficult and scary at times to drive in the snow. I don't recall this same...

How well tyres last depends on a number of things. Among them, not in any order, are...
1. Tyre quality
2. Surfaces driven on
3. Speed driven at
4. lenth of time driven in 4wd
5. wheel alignment
6. Tyre inflation pressure
7. Tread suitability and depth
8. Cornering speed and driving habits
9. loads carried
These are just a a few of the variables that contribute to tyre wear. I would consider this rate of wear as somewhere around normal.

How does 4 wheel drive work?

Hi there , in order for your 4 wheel to work you have to drive a couple feet for everything to lock. If you are already stuck and you put it into 4 wheel, it won't engage. hope this helps you out
