Good day to all.
Please could someone assist me. I'm about to sign the paperwork on the above mentioned foz and when I took it for a test drive I noticed just to the side of the gear selector there is a three-way switch. in the "neutral" position the AWD option is selected, in the "up" position the POWER option is selected and in the "down" position HOLD is selected. I haven't managed to read the owner's manual as yet so I'm not too sure what is going on. Please could someone shed some light on this for me.
Thanks
Grubby

There is a full explaination here "somewhere"; basically "Power" changes the auto shift points and makes it a little more sporty; "Hold" is for slippery starts in that the vehicle starts off in 2nd gear and typically used for sand, ice, mud etc. Middle position is "normal" or one might say "economy"
