So I've been seeing stuff about 4WS all over the place. But I dont know what 4WS meens. I'm guessing it meens either 4 wheel suspenion or 4 wheel steering. Which is it and can someone explain why it's so good?

4WS myths 1g -- getting my cork soaked

True, about 180 lb.

Worth it, as far as I'm concerned.

and has a tendency to break
I've never seen a broken one in person. Have you?

In fact I don't think Terri has seen a broken one (if you're talking about mechanical breakage) and she's likely seen more than all the rest of us put together.

Virtually all the mafunctions I've seen have been electronic in nature. Replacing resistors and capacitors is not all that onerous.

Maybe if you replace with factory parts, but that applies equally to just about anything.

If you have a manual and some manual dexterity and something between your ears, you can fix 'em.

Anyone lacking the above book and/or attributes can waste money on any part of their vehicle.

Jole was talking about replace, not fix.

I'm not certain if he has ever done either, or whether he's just repeating oft-told myths.

$240 CDN (that'd be around $200 US) from the dealer.

You spent (wasted?) a lot more than that on your PG which is now relegated to the corner of the garage.

Mine's got 400000kms on it, nothing broken yet
Mine's only 246,000 and change and it's had a hiccup or two, but (with the help of a shop manual, a little manual dexterity and something beside spell checker between my ears) it's now working fine.

I just went on a 6 hour trip yesterday and when through 2 mountain passes/roads. some of the corners are the craziest terrain youd take a car on, specially going downhill where your car loves to speed up a little more than youd like it. i can tell you having the 4ws made the car hug the inside edge of the guardrails no probs. 4ws is totally the shiz

And, is there a problem what I spend/waste my money on?? Its living and learning.
I didnt say I was having a problem finding the part, matter fact I havent even looked. I could care less if my 4WS was working. Although it makes my car unique, and u-turns easy, and parking a breeze.

The only time Ive seen one with a problem it was electrical related and needed a new control box. I dont care for the extra weight or the gimmick of seeing the rear wheels turn a little but I'm not a hater by any means.

And as far as I knew the only replacement parts were dealer?
