Well for those of you with a 4x4 duster have you used your 4x4 for what it was disigned for? summer time on the road driving does not count really.

sand, mud, snow, do.

I havent really used the 4x4 properly really yet. The only time I see the benefit is when I visit my daughter (which is very often!) and she lives on a new estate that is still being built, there is one entrance where the road is not yet finished and all the jcbs and wagons go up and down it so its covered in mud so when I drive on there I get the benefit for all of 2 minutes?

do you put the duster in locked 4x4 when you go down the road or just leave it in auto?

Most people don't want to go offroad incase the wheels go out of alignment ;)

The last two choices in the poll are the same, I choose whichever one meant "got a 4x2 and have not been off road" I knew I would never take a 4x4 off road so didn't buy one :)

4x4 is always engaged when towing the caravan and it really helps with traction and stability, it is also invaluable for the campsites, also had to use it yesterday when the local road had flooded. It keeps the car as straight as a die

I have mine in 2WD most of the time but switch to auto in the wet, however the main reason I got the 4WD model is for the winter. We had a lot of snow last year. Just wait and see - we'll probably have no snow this year, but if we do i'll be ready!
