I asked for 4-wheel drive on my purchased "off lease" Lexus. How do I set it?

Asked by Dec 06, 2015 at 08:46 PM about the 2013 Lexus RX 350 AWD

Question type: General

I am reading the manual and it appears I do not have the same set up as
shown in the manual for the RX350.  I have an ECT Snowsetting, but, where
is the AWD??

Most AWD vehicles nowadays are controlled automatically buy the vehicles sensor inputs, so it's FWD till the ABS sensors dedect wheel slippage and the AWD system is activated. No driver input required. The ECT snow setting is to force the vehicle to start out in 2nd gear of the transmission to alleviate wheel spin and gaining traction in snowy weather.
