    4x4 CR-V tested on rollers. What a complete failure!!!

    I had my CR-V tested on rollers today. How embarrassing! Why wasn't the power transferred to the rear axle? The dude who conducted the test told the same problem was with Toyota RAV4 Hybryd.

    Same results with many other 4x4 mini-SUVs as well.

    Guess the only vehicle that passed "true" 4x4 auto traction is the Subaru Forester.

    Mazda CX5 passed the same test with flying colours. Just like the cheapest, budget Dacia Duster.

    AWD is not the same as 4X4. Do your research.

    Now that I've learned my lesson, I'm supremely confident that next time I'll make a different mistake.

    Just like these idiots doing the videos, AWD is NOT 4wd, do your homework as it makes you look as bad as those people.

    FYI looking at how they are doing the test shows exactly how DUMB THEY ARE.

    This is not some legitimate test or even remotely close to one.

    The CR-V's 4WD doesn't fully luck up like a truck. It just makes the rear wheels assist the front wheels when needed. Most 4WD cars are like that because they're not meant for a lot of off-road use.

    Again: IT IS NOT FOUR WHEEL DRIVE, IT IS ALL WHEEL DRIVE, WHICH IS COMPLETELY DIFFERENT!!!!

    There is no such thing as a 4WD CR-V. This is starting to sound like an argument on Monty Python! So - Bring us a shrubbery, and make it a good one!

    No, it's not full time locked center differential 4WD. We get that. But the idea of AWD is that it should manage to engage the rear wheels when conditions call for it.

    On the Honda and Toyota systems, the vehicles are in FWD mode most of the time. The drive shaft to the rear spins, but it is not coupled to the differential itself until needed in the interest of fuel economy and wear. Wheel speed sensors and computer control should monitor front wheel slip and on demand engage the electromagnetic clutch to bring the rear wheels on line. Yes, there will be a delay, but it should eventually work!

    I find this result to be disappointing. Granted I'm used to the Subaru system, which like Audi does port some torque to the rears all the time in varying proportions via a transmission tail shaft clutch. Still, I bought my kid a CR-V believing that it would do what it's supposed to when needed.

    So what am I missing? How is this video false? What conditions would satisfy the computer monitoring system and engage the rear diffy clutch??

    Can you explain then why the CX-5 has no issue with passing this test? You seem to be implying that only 4WD vehicles are able to.
