This is getting more confusing as time goes by, Kia New Zealand denies any problem and says that the unit picks up the difference in speed between the front and rear hubs and keeps them the same by transferring torque, therefore nothing to do with the amount of engine power, acellerator or whatever, the reason that they can't pick it up on a stationary vehicle being "no hub movement means no signal, means no transfer".
Anyway, in desperation I've written to Borg Warner themselves to see if they can confirm or refute the problem. Frankly if the problem really exists it's a big one for me and would probably stop me owning the vehicle at all. The last thing I need is a vehicle being purchased for its safety in snow and off-road etc turning into a two wheel drive sledge down hill !!!!!
