Gen 2 CRVS are more capable than so many want to admit.
14+ inches of heavy snow on top of 1" of sleet/ice.
50% Tread cooper Discoverer AT3s.
CRV 9 points, mother nature 0, and local police threw in the towel even with newer full size SUVs.
First pushed out of 12" out of my slight up hill incline driveway. Then we spent 35minutes getting our Odyssey out into the road (on the road which plows had made a couple passes already, the Odyssey was playing hell moving around).
After that seeing as the plows had pushed all that snow right up next to where the van was parked, used my V to push most of it back and mow it down to manageable depth.
Finally at 1130 PM a younger women coming home from work posted on FB city page needing help in town accross the river. They had to bring the plows in and put a full tow ban into effect. Her car was buried in the mide of the road like several others due to ice base over deep snow. I went across the river to go help.
Police wouldnt even get close and gave me the 3rd degree at first about coming out. Chilled out when realized I was set up for it and I was only going to try to get the car free if it wasnt too risky, but mainly to get them home safe because they were outside of town exposed to the full force of the storm. They wouldnt even go down the road to the car with their fancy Ford explorers. Made them walk (I asked him to move so I could at least drive down close so they didnt have to hike out, but wouldnt, made them walk all the way back to us).
He then asked about road conditions from my.house to there and asked me to go straight home after dropping them off. I was a smart ass and asked "what's going to happen when you get stuck, lol, I'll be at home". Lightened their moods for the night which was cool.
Also my father got his 4runner stuck by mistake and he has some insane mudding tires on the thing (forgot that low range was required for lockouts to engage) so went to help him. He got out but **** himself when I made his long uphill driveway look easy with nothing more than his narrow ruts to follow.
Gotta say tires do kinda make the vehicle lol.
Have the New Discoverer at3 4s on the way for this now. Cooper just makes damn good tires that are not all marketing fluff, they do the job as good or better.
