Topic: Don't Drive on Dry Pavement in 4wd
Previous TopicNext TopicHelp
If your sport utility vehicle has part time 4 wheel drive (where you have to shift from 2 wheel drive to 4 wheel drive), it is not a good idea to drive very far on dry pavement in 4 wheel drive. Owners of older model 4wd vehicles and newer ones without all wheel drive should be aware of this problem. If you are driving your SUV in all wheel drive, this is not usually a problem.

On dry pavement, the wheels cannot slip a little bit like they can on dirt, snow, or ice. This causes "wind up" or excess stress in the 4wd parts which can damage your SUV. See our web page entitled "How Does 4 Wheel Drive Work" for more information.

Use Care: Consult your owners manual. There you should find information pertaining to driving your particular vehicle on dry pavement in 4 wheel drive.
