Usually...nothing can explain the features on your car better than the owners manual. It may seem boring, but you would be surprised how much you can learn about the operation of your vehicle by doing so. This also helps remind you about maintenance of critical components on your car...thus insuring your car runs properly for a long time. All wheel drive vehicles have a lot more running gear and fortunately are almost always managed by the on board computer. As a result, your drive wheels are kept to a minimum....that is...propelling the vehicle by one set of axles at a time (front or rear wheels) effectively....saving gas. Of course, when the computer senses a loss of traction, say at the front wheels...the rear wheels kick in. In bad weather, this makes for a safer vehicle to drive. To answer your question above....If your vehicle has all wheel drive, you should be able to drive it at any speed ( in automatic, the computer manages the drive wheels for you...if you have a feature that allows you to put the car in all wheel drive "manually"...thats what you'll have...all wheels driving all the time. However, in this mode, it will use more gas....hence the reason we drive most of time set to automatic....Thats what the computer is for....to manage engine and transmission gear, emission control...and ultimately provide the best fuel economy.
Try to post back and let me know If I helped you solve your problem. It will help me with my rating....! Thanks
