borrego 4x4 system question
Just picked up a borrego v6 EX with 10k on the clock to replace my aging sportage... So far, great vehicle!
The one concern I've had so far is the 4x4 system. Not sure if its a concern or just learning how it operates. In the auto mode, it seems to behave as expected. Starting out on ice will cause it to spin a little bit, until it makes a slight crunching sound and the front wheels engage. The part that doesn't seem right is when the dial is set to 4 -hi. It behaves EXACTLY the same. It is most certainly 2wd for a little bit until wheel slip is detected... Is this how its supposed to operate?
I'm coming from my sportage with a transfer case shift on the floor. 4-hi meant 4 high, no sensors involved! I also don't get the typical wheel hop that you normally associate with a locked center diff on the borrego.
