So I'm looking at CRVs and my local Honda dealership called me with a super mint clean 2004 one owner LX with only 41k miles on it.... I wish it was an EX though with all the better options and AWD mainly. This is really only going to be my winter/bad weather car as I have my Supercharged RSX Summer ride...
I think I should just pass on it and spend a little more for the AWD but just want some of your opinions from those with FWD and those with AWD as I've never driven the real time AWD in snow before. I had a beastly Nissan Pathfinder before. I know that Real Time honda AWD is actually mostly FWD unless the tires slip then it kicks in the rear. This is why I ask
At this point its probably too late, but are you sure that the LX is FWD? I have an AWD LX. It just doesnt have the little upgrades inside(moonroof, 6cd changer) but i didn't care for them either. Well maybe the moonroof would have been nice.
If it is just a FWD LX i would probably pass on it. I passed up lots of CRVs until i found my 5spd manual CRV with AWD.
Make a list of what is essential for you, in my case manual and AWD, under 100k mi.
That will help filter them easier.
Dang, if it weren't for the fact that i just spend 500 on new tires i woulld look into getting those wheells. They look suprisinglly good on the crv and of course very oem(which i like). Definitely better than what it came with.
