All Wheel Drive (AWD)
Many Colorado residents own all-wheel drive (AWD) vehicles to easily navigate rainy and snowy road conditions without having to decide when to shift from 2WD to 4WD low mode. An AWD transmission delivers power to all four wheels all of the time, which is different from front wheel drive (2WD) and four-wheel drive (4WD) vehicles. Based on the information it gathers from electronic sensors concerning current tire traction, your AWD vehicle’s computer system determines the amount of power each wheel receives. Adhering to a preventative maintenance schedule and having minor issues diagnosed and repaired early on will ensure your all wheel drive vehicle performs according to its manufacturer’s standards. At The Auto Repair Place in Boulder, our ASE certified technicians can quickly inspect, diagnose and repair your vehicle’s AWD system so you can hit the road without worry.
The Auto Repair Place’s AWD Services
Your all-wheel drive vehicle’s responsiveness to the roadway conditions is directly impacted by the current level of performance of many components related to the drivetrain. Due its complexity, an AWD system not only requires its moving parts to be functioning in an optimal state, but its computer system and related components, such as its sensors, must also be free of malfunctions.
