Re: STUCK IN SAND with 4WD malfunction
We picked up our GC through the week, so this weekend being the first weekend with our new baby, we thought we'd take him for a ride to the beach!
So, we got to the beach, aired down the tyres to 16psi, stuck the selec terrain into SAND/MUD mode, and off we went. The vehicle was performing effortlessly until about 5 minutes down the beach, the SERV 4WD light came on. My heart sank (I've read about this problem on the forums prior to receiving the vehicle). I acted quickly, keeping in mind that the wet sand and momentum is what is going to save me here, and managed to get us off the beach without a tow. The "SERV 4WD" and "Service air suspesion" messages stayed on until we got back onto bitumen. Then everything went back to normal. I'm SOOOOOOOOOO frustrated and disheartened that this happened.
I'm going to book the car in for inspection this week. I will keep you all informed.
