I used to own a freelander 1. Due to the four wheel drive system (centre viscous coupling) it used to be noticable where turning on full lock that the inner rear wheel scrubbed a bit. This was just part of the design and we'll known. With my 08 CR-V when I turn onto my drive on almost full lock it kind of feels like there is some resistance from the rear wheels. Previous car to CR-V was 2WD octavia and that just glided around onto my drive. An I correct in thinking that the CR-V four wheel drive system only brings in drive to the rear wheels when the car detects slippage on the front wheels or does it monitor all wheels and bring in drive to the rear wheels on tight corners? Another thing that I get when going onto my drive (dropped curb) is a noise on the drivers side which sounds similar to a warn drop link. Anyone have experience with this as a problem? I get the same noise when driving down a slightly rutted track.
