Honda CR-V: Accelerating and Braking - Off-Highway Driving Guidelines - Driving - Honda CR-V Owner's ManualHonda CR-V: Accelerating and Braking

For better traction on all surfaces, accelerate slowly and gradually build up speed. If you try to start too fast on wet soil, mud, snow, or ice, you might not have enough traction to get underway, and you may dig yourself a hole. Starting with the shift lever in second (2) gear will help you have a smoother start on snow or ice.

Avoid hard braking. Do not ‘‘pump’’ the brakes; let the anti-lock braking system pump them for you.
