Slips, Slides and Sucks Gas

2008 Honda CR-V LX 4dr SUV AWD (2.4L 4cyl 5A)
Bought this vehicle about 1.5 years ago. At first we liked it. It has a very comfortable car-like ride and is fun to drive. Only mechanical problem to date has been a failed battery, which Honda has a problem with. However, when winter came our opinion changed drastically. If you have to drive in winter conditions this vehicle can be downright dangerous. The tires have no grip at all and we felt like we were taking our lives in our hands driving it back and forth to work. My wife refused to drive it and took my Corolla! We are going to have to spend $1000.00 on new tires before somebody gets killed in this thing. The Honda dealer will do nothing about it. Also it sucks gas like a Hummer
Fun to drive in summer.
Tires! Honda should be sued over their choice of tires. Improve gas mileage. Honda suggested we drive it 30,000 miles and then check the gas mileage. Thanks! This will be the last Honda. Should have bought a Rav-4.
