Honda CR-V: Preparing to Drive

You still need to exercise the same care when accelerating, steering, and braking that you would in a twowheel drive vehicle.

1. Make sure all windows, mirrors, and outside lights are clean and unobstructed. Remove frost, snow, or ice.

2. Check that the hood is fully closed.

3. Visually check the tires. If a tire looks low, use a gauge to check its pressure.

4. Check that any items you may be carrying are stored properly or fastened down securely.

5. Check the seat adjustment.

6. Check the adjustment of the inside and outside mirrors.

7. Check the steering wheel adjustment.

8. Make sure the doors and the tailgate are securely closed and locked.

9. Fasten your seat belt. Check that your passengers have fastened their seat belts.

10. When you start the engine, check the gauges and indicators in the instrument panel.
