Living in St Paul, MN has its ups and downs. One thing is for sure, a large amount of vehicles that we see on the road have four wheel drive. Four wheel drive is great for so many reasons. Whether you are trying to sling some mud on the off roads or just trying to make it through our heavy snow winters, four wheel drive is an excellent choice in the St. Paul, MN area. Seriously, just throw your gear onto “low” and let the good times roll! That is, if your four wheel drive is working properly. Sometimes “throwing it in gear” is not always possible. If your four wheel drive is not working and you think you are in need of repair, St. Paul Automotive has got you covered.
4 Wheel Drive System
So what does it mean to actually have four wheel drive? How does it help during icy and muddy roads? Four wheel drive is beneficial to a vehicle because it allows the vehicle to give power to all four of the wheels at once. During two wheel drive, the most commonly used drive, power is given to just two wheels. This, however, isn’t ideal during harsh weather conditions. Ideally, you want to use all four! So as the ice melts and the spring comes in, it’s nice to get your 4 wheel drive system checked and make sure that everyone is a go for the next time you are in a pickle.
