Santa Fe I 3.5V6 2002-2009...
Automatic all wheel drive. The BorgWarner TorqTransfer System ITM-I (interactive torque management I). The system uses electronic sensors and microcomputer controls to sense slippage in a vehicle's front wheels and automatically transfers power to the rear wheels. Then, when the front wheels are no longer slipping, the system reduces or eliminates power to the rear wheels.
The reduced slippage increases efficiencies that enhance vehicle handling and traction and improve fuel economy. The ITM-I can work with other systems such as antilock brake systems and electronic stability programs to further enhance traction and stability.
