Front Hubs Work Intermittently When In 4 Wheel Drive. Took To Dealer And He Said That Since They Cannot Duplicate The Problem (wouldnt Work For Me On Grass), That They Stated That There Is No Problem, But If You Have One To Call A Tow Truck If You Get Stuck Again. Also Another Problem–spare Tire And Wheel Assembly Were Replaced By Charapp With Wrong Diameter Tire And Wheel.
