Hi guys,

Im about to have my antara tomorrow, but i never saw a off/on button for the 4x4 does that mean the 4x4 stays on at all times..

Thanks

No, it's automatic, 4x4 only turns on when needed.

It is a shame that there is no button as it would be good to be able to switch 4x4 on like you can on the X-trail

If I had the 4Wheel Drive transmission on mine I wouldn't be looking to turn it off.It's an intelligent on-demand systemwhich only drives the rear wheels when required, not all the time so there's no locking up or binding eg when reversing that you get with other systems. It is important to keep front and rear tyres fairly well matched but you should do that anyway.
