When driving on ice or snow the 4-wheel drive kicks out, causing vehicle to jerk and potentially slid. No impact had been reported. The vehicle was in motion when it felt as if the transmission dropped out. The vehicle had to be stopped to get back into 4WD. The lever was held tightly and popped out again. The vehicle was driven in 2wd for several miles then was able to be placed back into 4WD and stayed. Also, the upholstery had started to tear on the driver's seat and the gaskets on both mirrors deteriorated.
