Frequently Asked Questions
Are AWD and 4x4 the same thing?
As stated above, they are similar but have different uses. While 4x4 is good for short uses over obstacles or off-roading through mud, AWD is best for daily driving on nearly any road condition.
Are AWD and 4WD vehicles good in the snow?
Yes, both are excellent in the snow but in different situations. 4WD is great for slow crawling through deep snow while AWD handles wonderfully on snowy roads.
When is 4WD necessary?
4WD is only truly necessary for getting through poor off-roading conditions or climbing over obstacles in vehicles with high ground clearance.
When should I rotate the tires on an AWD vehicle?
We recommend that you rotate the tires of your vehicle every 3,000 to 5,000 miles, even if your tires don't appear to show uneven wear.
Are AWD and 4WD vehicle more expensive to insure?
There are various risk factors associated with 4WD and AWD vehicles (i.e. off-roading and worse road conditions), so their insurance premiums can higher.
