Hey PeopleI'm a one day old Juke SL (american spec) owner. I can't figure out the difference between AWD setting and AWD-V setting. Can someone help. The dealer didn't really know... didn't realize that there was a seperate AWD-V setting.A little help please?

From what i can make out, the AWD is a permanent 50/50 split front to back. AWD-V is front wheel drive only untill it looses grip, then it sends some (up to 50%) of the power to the back, and the V means the power sent to the back can be used on either rear wheel, so out of the 50% that is sent to the rear axle, half of it (so 25% of total power or 50% of rear axle power) can go to either wheel.

The AWD should only be used in very slippery conditions like thick snow or ice. The torque still vectors in AWD but not as much. On pavement it could put undue stress on the clutch packs in the rear axle. AWD-V is best for dry and wet pavement as well as mildly slippery conditions.
