    So lest say I'm cruising down the highway at 80mph/100 kmph and the roads are clear and dry.All of a sudden it starts to snow and eventually roads are covered and getting slippery in 2wd.

    My question,Is it safe to switch into 4wd auto at that speed?

    In those road conditions, nothing is safe at those speeds....slow down and put it in auto 4wd if ya want.

    You can technically shift in to 4wd high at speeds of 100kph or less but the slower the better and be sure your not spinning or on the fuel

    No kidding , your going down the road at 80mph and it starts to snow. You want to know if it's safe to hit auto 4wd. Slow down and put it in 4 auto. No offense to you but that looks like a question a 20 year old would ask, not someone your age.
