Mazda CX-5 FWD, AWD Question
I'm looking for a pre-owned Mazda CX-5 Grand Touring FWD. Quite hard to find. Am interested in FWD because my research and experience says that where I live, AWD isn't really necessary and just lowers gas mileage and eats tires.
Have spoken with several dealerships about this topic.
Finally, today this salesman tells me that the AWD feature on the CX-5 Grand Touring is "on demand", so most of the time the vehicle runs on FWD.
I asked him where I could find more info on this and he directed me to the Mazda web site and he suggested that I post the question on this site.
Therefore, I have two questions.
First, is what this guy telling me accurate? I haven't heard this from anyone else I've talked to.
Second question, is the "on demand" featured controlled by me, or does it come in automatically if the vehicle detects snow or ice or whatever?
Your thoughts and comments on this will be greatly greatly appreciated.
