    Default Toyota Premio Full time 4wd advice

    Hello,
    I have just purchased a Toyota Premio 2005, it is a full time 4WD.

    I want to use it in the city and travel once in a while but i have read a lot online that a
    4wd will give me problems. Did i make a mistake in buying it?

    It has a 1zz engine type is that bad ?

    Please assist as i feel i have make a mistake in purchasing this car. Is it true?

    I will appreciate your answer

    If the car is mechanically perfect and engine is healthy then it will give no problem although its mileage will be less than a 2wd version

    Brp, I myself owns a 4wd Premio since years, it is a flawless car since I've purchased it. I have also used the 2wd one but 4wd is million times better.

    Dear, can you please let me know where I can see your car, I am from Islamabad and will be obliged if you let me check your car. I am also thinking to switch back to 4WD car but can't decide which to get.

    Hoping for a positive response from you.
    Thanks

    4WD has a better road grip than a 2WD resulting it consuming more petrol.....most of the places where u could get stuck in a 2WD car, u will have a chance of getting away with getting stuck in a 4WD.......u can call this 4WD as an all-wheel-drive but it is not exactly a 4WD.....personal experiance, had a Nissan Elgrand in Australia with a 4WD and 2WD options through which u can alternate.....it was always heavier on fuel with 4WD with better grip......only downside, consumes more petrol but there won't be a huge difference

    but in city driving there is no need of additional grip and I have heard that 4wd cars feel more heavy than 2wd cars, is that true ?

    Drawing from my experiance....yes the car felt a bit heavier when on 4WD.....but there was not a huge difference and never bothered me.....u r right that it is not required during city driving, but a bit of extra grip always comes in handy.....but if the car is running fine, dont worry about consumption and drive......what if u sell it and could not find sth for the same price in the same condition.....so just enjoy it and take care of it without having second thoughts

    Toyota Premio Full time 4wd advice, Performance Modification Tune Up Preventive. It was released as an improved version of Toyota Corolla and Kenyans fell in love with. If you want my advice, the Subaru Forester is the most ideal thanks. My Toyota Caldina is giving me problems. Please re-enable javascript to access full functionality. It is the second time the automaker has redesigned the Premio. This other model is called the Toyota Premio.
