    Unhappy Wheels spin !!!

    The front wheels on my recently purchased crv spin a lot more then i would of thought for a 4x4 when pulling out of junctions etc , i realise the rear wheels come into play a bit later but surprised at the spin !!, sometimes feels like a normal front wheel drive cars ive owned in the past , any reason anyone ?? apart from my driving

    Main reason, you didn't buy a Subaru.

    Apart from your driving, it's not a 4x4. It is a front drive with the ability to put some of the drive torque to the rear diff when the front wheel(s) are sensed to be rotating faster than the rear wheels. As FLCRV said the Subaru has the ability to put most of the left over torque to the rear wheels by different design. check it out http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FOmZIu_y1js

    Speaking of the ultimate all wheel/4 wheel drive vehicles. My two votes would be:
    Truck: Toyota Landcruiser FJ 60 (made from 1980-1987) will go through anything and it's a manual transmission.
    Car: BMW 325 iX 1989-1991 (the old one ones). These things were beasts in the snow. They used viscous coupling instead of electronic all wheel drive and 60 % of the power went to the rear wheels so it was still fun to drive.
