I read the manual and info. online and still can't figure out whether the Compass is always in Auto. 4WD or is it in Two Wheel drive until you flip the "lock" switch. Our old KIA sportage was always in auto 4WD but when you pushed the lock button , it would lock it in. I read (online) that it was always in auto 4WD , then I'd read another article that said it was in 2WD until you hit the switch. I'm confused.

during normal highway driving, 90% of the power is being sent to the front wheels, and about 10% to the rear wheels. but there is always a small amount of power that goes to the rear wheels. jeep's website does not do a good job of explaining it.

Thanks. Yea , I agree , They don't explain it very well. I think they should though. Our salesman said it is not in 4WD until you flip the Lock switch.
That link (above) should be in the manual.
