0 8 / 0 7 / 2 2   1 7 : 3 7 : 3 8   3 1 SWA 6 2 0   0 0 0 5   Important Handling Information Your CR - V has higher ground clearance than a passenger vehicle designed for use only on pavement . Higher ground clearance has many advantages for off - highway driving . It allows you to travel over bumps , obstacles , and rough terrain . It also provides good visibility so you can anticipate problems earlier . These advantages come at some cost . Because your vehicle is taller and rides higher off the ground , it has a high center of gravity . This means your vehicle can tip or roll over if you make abrupt turns . Utility vehicles have a significantly higher rollover rate than other types of vehicles . In a rollover crash , an unbelted person is significantly more likely to die than a person wearing a seat belt . As a reminder , make sure you and your passengers always wear seat belts . For information on how to reduce the risk of rollover , read ‘ ‘ Driving Guidelines ’ ’ on page of this manual and the 244 Off - Highway Driving Guidelines section on page . Failure to operate your vehicle correctly might result in loss of 268 control or an accident . iv 2009 CR - V
