My wife has a 2008 CRV and I would say its a nice car for bad weather on the road (i.e. snow and ice) since it has AWD. It also gets great gas milage, up to 30 mpg on the hwy. However, I would not take it on the beach. I would not feel comfortable with the ground clearance it has. It would probably be fine on a hard packed beach but not Assateague. The engine seems capable enough and has some pep if you keep the weight down. We have not had to put it in low range so I cannot comment on that.

I have a Ridgeline. I love this truck, even though it is not made for heavy duty off-roading. It does the job just fine for most of the fishing expectations. It even won its division for the BAJA 2000 contest. It beat out the Toyota comparison vehicle. Granted there is much credit to the driver.

Check out this link and website. All Ridgeline

i have seen plenty of the beach.... I fished in a pilot for a few years and had no problems, even pulled out a few "domestic" vehicles.... it was easily the best driving vehicle on the beach that I have ridden in

I drove a CR-V for several years from Assateague to Hatteras. Never had any problems. Just get used to wobbling around in wider tire tracks and scraping bottom because there's no clearance.
