    Hi me and the wife are going to pick our 3rd Generation Honda CR-V up a week on Saturday and just getting on forum to see what's going on meet new people and learn more about the CR-V. It's a 2.2 I-CTDI ES 4 wheel drive with all the toys, sat nav, reverse camera, parking sensors etc.

    Cheers

    Mikey

    Thanks guys. I think we have got our selfs a good one. 2.2 diesel with most of the toys for £7750 from a Honda dealer. What are these cars like off road? Was looking at doing a wee bit to see what it's like and so I know how to handle.

    Better than most people think but don't expect it to be a landrover, do a search on the Internet there are plenty of videos on there

    Decent tyres will make a difference of course. Mine went over snow and sheet ICE with no problem on all season tyres. Should be some videos here of it.

    I can't copy links on this phone but if you search my user name and the keyword volvo you'll find a thread called snow and you'll find them on page 2

    Welcome to HondaKarma @Mikeyfraser :welcome:

    Many congratulations on the CR-V. Have a good look around the CR-V section - there is loads of advice, and if you have a problem that isn't covered, plenty of members will try to help.

    ^^ As @Nighthawk says, there are some videos already in the CR-V section on this. I don't expect a CR-V would get you to the back of beyond like a LR Defender would, but for "normal" use in snow and on light off-road terrain they seem to be pretty well regarded :gohonda:
