I am a new Tuscon owner, after going the last 13 years with GM. I've had my 2010 Tuscon (Limited, AWD) for 2 months, I have roughly 3500 kms on it.

Twice now, I've noticed a sudden, and very noticible "jerk" in the vehicle, while driving. Both times doing around 75 kph. Its almost like for a split second, all four wheels lock, there is a very audible "clunk", and persons in the car are jerked forward. Both times its scared the bejeebers out of me. This is my first AWD veh, tho from what I've read in the manual, AWD is only for under 35 kph, and it automatically switches off after you accererate over that. It was one of the first things I checked to see if it had somehow come on. My first service isn't for another month yet...

Is this something I should be calling the dealership to have looked at, or am I totally missing something??
