I just bought a 2010 Forester. While thumbing thru the owner's manual, I saw the section addressing using the spare tire on vehicles with automatic transmissions. The instructions are to disable the AWD, by placing a jumper (fuse) in the fusebox. This got me wondering- could you leave the AWD disabled, and just use FWD? I live in the city, and don't need AWD, I just liked the car and features and the fact Consumer's Report loved it.
