I have a 2012 Kia Sportage.
A couple of weeks ago my wife asked me to take it for a drive, she thought something was wrong with it.
As soon as I tried to pull into a parking spot I noticed the car jumping like it was in AWD. And the gas mileage has dropped to about 21mpg, we normally get 30-32 mpg.
I pulled the fuse for the AWD, and it's still engaged.
I took it to the dealer, they're telling me they think the problem is in the transfer case? Doesn't the electric coupling engage the rear wheels? I unplugged the couping and the rear wheels still turn when the drive shaft is turning.

99,600 miles.
Yes, fluids have been changed.
Now they're telling me it's the transmission, along with the transfer case and the rear coupling.
