When i bought my 2010 compass, the salesman was going over all the features and when he was explaining about using 4wd he said that you are supposed to turn off ESC first and then engage 4wd, is this nessesary? I can see that being useful when going through really deep snow when wheel spin helps you get through, but is it nessesary to do this when just driving on snow covered roads, or could turning it off be dangerous?

Thanks

Leave the esc on, 4x4 is comes on when needed. You may not even know when the 4x4 kicks in if you on slippery roads.
