Yes sort of. The AWD is electronically engaged when the computer detects it needs to. The AWD lock button provides a computer overide 50/50 split only under 18 mph.

a ha!!

i am going to my dealer this week to meet with them in regards to my sat radio BS... i will also ask them as to why i was pushing the autolock feature at 60mph to (their words) "shift from fwd to awd mode"......

thank goodness it was the test car not mine


enf- either you can clean the underbelly of your car , or thas a file photo.... either way, nice imagery of the trans. case....

i see a part that appears a bit weak, or thin........ can you guess????? (am looking to replace this amongst other easy to-do goodies)

When I bought the Z and MO, I had the dealer put it on the rack and I took underside photos for my website. They of course thought I was .

It doesn't hurt to press the AWD lock at 60mph, the computer just ignores it above 18mph.

I don't know of any aftermarket stabilizer bars for the MO.

Well...I wouldn't run with the lock on all the time. That pic is of the AWD control unit and rear differential. Remember, this car is primarily FWD. Don't know if extended use would hurt it, but the AWD is for slippery conditions, not dry pavement. I would think consume more gas or wear tires...something along those lines.

I have felt some binding in the drive train while taking tight corners on dry pavement in AWD. To me, that's a good sign! But obviously, not a good habit!

The Nissan Murano... Love at first drive!
But this is what I drive these days... Does a 12.21 second 1/4 mile @117.7 mph.

Coming next spring... a 440 Hemi. That should kick some behind.
