I apologize if this has already been addressed, I looked through multiple forums and threads and could not find a discussion on it. When I picked the car up I asked the delivery consultant about using my MO offroad as a true SUV, with 4 wheel drive. He said no, I cant take it on the beach, in bad offroad territory, etc, that AWD was not the same as 4WD. I understand the difference, but still think AWD should be fine, if I start to slip the other 2 kick in, right? Has anyone ever taken thiers seriously offroad? Good experience? bad? Any info would be very helpful. I'm eager to take mine out on the beach and offroading, but am afraid I will be embarrased and need my "SUV" towed out of a pit.
