When the recall is published, it will read Four Wheel Drive.
There is a Front Wheel Drive (4x2) version, but those vehicles are not involved in this recall.
The MK Compass/Patriot has two different Four Wheel Drive (4x4) systems available -
The Freedom Drive I™ 4WD system
and the The Freedom Drive II™ 4WD system
These are active full-time 4WD systems with selectable LOCK feature. They have both a high range and a low range.
