2008 Honda CR-V Owner Comments

problem #1

I was in an accident where the car slid off the road in a snow storm. When the car hit the ditch I pushed on the brakes and the car kept moving. The vehicle continued to move about 50 feet before striking a tree. It never slowed down, no matter how hard I pressed the brake pedal. The vehicle is equipped with all wheel drive (AWD). It appeared to me that the AWD took over and continued to try to get the vehicle under control from the slide on the ice. I was driving about 20 to 25 mph at the time when I started to slide on ice. The passenger side wheels went into the ditch line, which was about 12 inches deep. I stepped on the brakes immediately after the wheels hit the ditch thinking it would slow the vehicle since the wheels were no longer on the icy road. As I said earlier, at that point I was pressing the brakes as hard as I could but the vehicle did not slow down. I suspect there is a conflict between the braking system and the AWD when this situation occurs. It appears the AWD software continues to gain stability, and prevents the brakes from stopping the wheels. I also read a notice from Honda that says when a situation like this occurs the anti-lock brakes are disabled and regular braking takes over.
