Honda CR-V: General Information - Off-Highway Driving Guidelines - Driving - Honda CR-V Owner's ManualHonda CR-V: General Information

Your vehicle has been designed primarily for use on pavement. But its higher ground clearance allows you to occasionally travel on unpaved roads, such as campgrounds, picnic sites, and similar locations. It is not designed for trail-blazing, mountain climbing, or other challenging offroad activities.

If you decide to drive on unpaved roads, you will find that it requires somewhat different driving skills.

Your vehicle will also handle somewhat differently than it does on pavement. So be sure to read this owner’s manual, pay special attention to the precautions and tips in this section, and get acquainted with your vehicle before you leave the pavement.
