Hi Im just wondering what are the obvious differances between the awd and 2wd ,I've been looking at buying a second hand awd kluger 07 onwards and am finding alot of the cars I'm looking at are advertised as awd but are missing that badge on the rear tailgate ,some even have gsu40r on the owners manual and not gsu45r ,So are most of the cars I'm looking at 2wd or did some of the awd versions come out without the badge on the back??.any help would be appreciated as I am quickly loosing faith in peoples ability to be honest :angry: thanks D

If it aint got the badge, look under the rear at the rear wheel, check for a drive shaft from centre hub to centre of wheel, if nothing is present, then its a 2wd, i wouldnt think toyota would bring out the 2wd books for the awd, as i think a few people looking to get more $$$ by saying it s awd rather than 2wd

GSU40R 2wd.

GSU45R 4wd. Simple as that...

Check the VIN numbers.

Thanks for the responses and as I suspected it is as simple as ope126 said ,out of the 20 something ads Ive looked at I know that at least 4 are gsu40r 2wds ,when pressed on this most admit that they are indeed the 2wd except a certain "bitsamissing" dealer in southeast melb :angry: who argued with me and suggested that the awd badge may have been removed and/or the manual with the referance to gsu40r may be wrong ???,anyway I'll keep hunting for one in our price range and fingers crossed one turns up soon thanks again D.
