Hyundai Santa Fe: Driving your vehicle / Four wheel drive (4WD)

Hyundai Santa Fe (TM) 2019-2024 Owner's Manual / Driving your vehicle / Four wheel drive (4WD)

Four Wheel Drive (4WD) delivers engine power to front and rear wheels for maximum traction. 4WD is useful when extra traction is required, such as when driving on, muddy, wet, or snow-covered roads.

WARNING

To reduce the risk of SERIOUS INJURY or DEATH:

  • Do not drive in conditions that exceed the vehicles intended design such as challenging off-road conditions.
  • Avoid high speeds when cornering or turning.
  • Do not make quick steering wheel movements, such as sharp lane changes or fast, sharp turns.
  • The risk of a rollover is greatly increased if you lose control of your vehicle at highway speeds.
  • Loss of control often occurs if two or more wheels drop off the roadway and the driver over steers to reenter the roadway.
  • In the event your vehicle leaves the roadway, do not steer sharply. Instead, slow down before pulling back into the travel lanes.

NOTICE

  • Do not drive in water if the level is higher than the bottom of the vehicle.
  • Check your brake condition once you are out of mud or water. Depress the brake pedal several times as you move slowly until you feel normal braking return.
  • Shorten your scheduled maintenance interval if you drive in off-road conditions such as sand, mud or water (see "Maintenance Under Severe Usage Conditions" section in chapter 9).
  • Always wash your vehicle thoroughly after off road use, especially the bottom of the vehicle.
  • Be sure to equip the vehicle with four tires of the same size and type.
  • Make sure that a full time 4WD vehicle is towed by a flat bed tow truck.

Good braking practices

WARNING Whenever leaving the vehicle or parking, always come to a complete stop and continue to depress the brake pedal. Shift the gear to the P (Park) position, then apply the parking brake, and press the Engine Start/Stop button to the OFF position...
