Default Which one is more snow worthy?

Hello,

I have a friend who wants to buy a 4WD or AWD Honda, and they are
considering the Pilot, CRV and Crosstour. Personally I don't like the
Crosstour for the way it looks and the Pilot is too big for me. So
lets say ugliness and being almost as big as a cement mixer weren't
factors. Can anyone say that there would be a difference between the
snow worthiness of any of them? I was told that none of them have
manual 4WD like a jeep has. I guess all of them are AWD?

Thanks so much!

Jill

As it is your friend who is considering a vehicle, your opinion of the
Crosstour, nor does the fact that you are not able to handle the size of
the Pilot has absolutely nothing to do with the purchase.

Hello,

I know, but I am just talking about snow worthiness and which one is
better. She is driving a Subaru Forester, but her lease is almost up
and thinking of giving Honda a chance.

Thanks so much,

Jill

Snow worthy is relevant to your geographical location.
For some, a bombardier snow cat is the only snow worthy vehicle to have.

For the suburban wife who wants an SUV to drive to the market in, any
vehicle with decent SNOW tires (or those nokian wr tires for all season)
should do the trick.

I would keep the subaru. They have an excellent track record for
reliability, but not the greatest fuel economy.
And put some snow tires on it from October to April.

I would place more emphasis on your friend's skill level and experience
in driving in snow and ice conditions, than snow tires or vehicle.

Jim, I can't recall if I've reminded you of this lately.

Shut the **** up.

Well thank you all for the information. I heard Honda was the best in
reliability actually, and even better than Subaru. She's not just
going to the market and back. She works full time and needs to get
back home during storms as I do as well. We both live in New England
in the snow belt area, so we need to be able to handle driving in 6-8
inches or snow.

So had I.

Go to rec.autos.makers.honda and see my thread over the past couple days
on the legendary failing Honda transmissions.
