Full drive


Vectra 4x4

The system "Constant drive of all wheels", at the working engine is in constant readiness. The driving effort by means of not wearing out liquid coupling (Visko-mufta) automatically is distributed between lobbies and back wheels according to an instant ratio of forces of interaction of tires with a road cloth.

At an amplifying proskalzyvaniye on a forward axis (entrance on the slippery road) the most part of driving effort is redistributed on a back axis.

For ensuring normal braking at speed above 25 km/h the drive of back wheels is disconnected, and after a brake otpuskaniye instantly joins again.

For the physical reasons efficiency of braking of the vseprivodny car cannot be higher, than at a two-wheeled drive.

Therefore it is impossible to pass to risky style of driving.

Distribution of driving effort between four wheels gives the chance, especially in winter conditions, to overcome liftings which cannot be overcome at a two-wheeled drive. On descents, however, the full drive does not give advantages in braking in comparison with the two-wheeled. Overcome such sites of a way carefully.

Control lamp of a drive of all wheels

Lights up at ignition. Dies away after engine start.

Fire when driving, only a forward drive. If the lamp continues to burn and after new start, for elimination of malfunction to address in masterful Orel.

Blinking, long inclusion of a drive of all wheels. Immediately address in an authorized workshop of Orel, thus conduct the car carefully as stability of braking in critical situations is limited.

The full drive increases traction effort. Offers advantages at a troganiye and slow driving, and also on slippery roads and difficult sites.

Distribution of driving effort between 4 wheels reduces their proskalzyvaniye, uses coupling of tires with a roadbed better and by that increases efficiency of accelerations.

Stability of a continence of a strip at the expense of growth of transferred lateral efforts improves.

Decrease in a proskalzyvaniye promotes reduction of wear of tires. Thus the durability of tires in identical conditions is higher, than at tires on a leading axis of the all-wheel drive car of the same capacity.

For a faultless course of the car to use in a set of the tire of one manufacturer, a design, the size and a profile.

Regularly to supervise depth of a profile. Depth of a profile on forward wheels not should be essentially less depth of a profile back (the maximum difference of 2 mm). The big difference leads to jamming of system of a drive.

If wear on forward wheels more than on back, it is necessary to change them in places.

Not to tow with a speed over 80 km/h. To carry out towage with the raised forward axis, only at the switched-off ignition or having taken out a safety lock 19. Otherwise the mode of a full drive will be activated.
