AWD never owned one what do I need to know?

I am in the process of buying a 2010 mountaineer v8 with AWD. I have never owned an AWD vehicle only RWD.

What do I need to know/do to prevent any problems with AWD?

Thanks

AWD is a fairly straight forward system. You have a front differential, as well as a rear, plus a transfer case. If you stick to the factory fluid change intervals, it'll last you just as long as a rwd system will.
