    driving problem on paved road

    Please help : I have an 02 escalade with all -wheel drive (6.0 ) Its kind of weird what happened , I think it has to do with the kind of paved road, when I am making the turn its kind of jumping, only happends on specific kind of paved road like a new gas stations. Please anybody had that problem before ? there is anyway that I can disconnect all-wheel drive because I dont see any button on the 02 escalade . thanks in advance.

    The only time you'll notice AWD on dry pavement is when you turn sharply. It's normal and not a problem, and every AWD vehicle I've owned does it.

    There is no way to disconnect the AWD. If you wanted a 2wd you should've bought a 2wd.
    The above post is my 2 cents....nothing more.

    Thanks, it is happen even with just a little bit of turn. I didn't mean to disconnect it but I think some cars you can choose to engage it or not

    Just to echo Rolex, this is normal, its called "crabbing". All AWD vehicles experience this issue, especially larger vehicles with larger tires. You'll also notice that in places like parking garages your wheels with squawk when making turns, even though you aren't going fast. Again, totally normal.

    I agree it is normel and does take a bit getting used to I know from making mine do the squawk from it crabbing when I have the steering turned tight in a parking lot so it is best to not worry about it.
