Four-wheel drive ownership is the dream of many drivers. For some, they may start out with a 4×4, for others, it may take them years to upgrade to one. Regardless, keeping your 4×4 in tip-top shape is essential. With that in mind, it is important to know what to use and when to keep repair costs down, safety up, and the car performing at its fullest. Car Wreckers Adelaide offers the following information.
When driving on dry, smooth, or flat roads, keep the car or truck out of the 4 wheel drive setting as driving on these types of road surfaces in the 4wheel drive setting can damage your drivetrain. The four-wheel drive setting is to provide the vehicle more torque, and all tyres are engaged for movement; so, it will not help you stop. It is essential to drive at speeds that allow you to safely stop, regardless of the drive.
When you are shifting from 2wheel drive to automatic 4wheel drive or 4H, you can shift while driving at normal speeds. When you shift in or out of 4wheel drive low, it is necessary to bring the vehicle to a complete stop and not shift until the indicator light has stopped flashing.
Four-wheel drive vehicles are not the standard sedan. There is a great deal of information to familiarise yourself with. Reading the owner’s manual from cover to cover is essential, and should be done before you start to drive the 4×4.
Car or truck, 4x4s are built differently, and being familiar with the vehicle is essential. If you have not read your owner’s manual for the car, do so. It provides a great deal of information on the vehicle that each 4×4 owner should be aware of, so they can properly care for their cars.
