Search the archives on this tvpierce, as this topic has been touched on much in the past. I don't have firsthand experience, but here's what I reas in summary: the early 4-matic system was very complex, allowing the performance of RWD during normal conditions with the AWD system kicking in with loss of traction. While very cabapable, it was considered overly complicated by many and was frequently expensive to maintain.
