  5. 06 CRV Ex AWD, brake sounds weird if the car slips on snow?

    Gen 2: 2002-2006 (UK 2002-2007) CR-V
    It's been snowy recently and sometimes when I press the brakes and if it's slippery, the car will not stop. But what's concerning is the weird noise the brake makes, it's hard to describe but it sounds like something is rubbing about something. I don't hear anything in normal dry weather when...

    So this is the 2nd time in a week this has happened. Driving in snow, approximately 2~4 inches of snow on the highway the exhaust is so loud I thought it was a clunker next to me. When I slowed it became much louder. It seems the RPM’s are so high it takes awhile for the car to quiet down. In...
  16. AWD would not work in slushy snow. TPMS light on

    Problems & Issues
    I'm new to the site. My wife traded her 4 Runner for a 2016 CRV in Dec 16. Due to a mild West Virginia winter I didn't notice a problem last year.

    Gen 5: 2017-2021 (UK 2018-2022) CR-V
    Potential new owner here. I've been contemplating purchase of a new C-RV probably EX-L or Touring model. I'm currently researching and will probably wait till spring till winter is over. I drive way above average miles and live in an area where winter snow tires can be an advantage, but probably...
  20. How good is the AWD on the 2017 CR-V for snow?

    Gen 5: 2017-2021 (UK 2018-2022) CR-V
    How is the CR-V's AWD for traction on snow? Would you say that it is an absolutely essential feature of the car and you couldn't live without it?
