No. 1

M: What kind of car do you have?

F: It's (a) four-wheel drive, because we have a lot of snow ( around ) here. -- Only in very abbreviated English would you write "4WD" here.

M: I'm thinking of buying a new car. Let me have [ take ] a look at it.

F: Sure. Come ( over ) to my house this evening.

No. 2

M: You're a university student, aren't you? What year [ grade ] are you in? -- In BrE we would not use "grade" here. I am not certain about AmE.

F: I'm a sophomore. -- Rare in BrE, but I believe it's more widely used in AmE.

M: What are your plans after graduation?

F: I want to teach English at senior high school.

You can't get much more abbreviated than a short dialogue. It's fine here, Kenta.

The fact that it's a short dialogue is irrelevant to the acceptability of such abbrevations.

No, Mr Wordy-- it is pronounced 'four double-yu dee' and is a common term for the vehicle.

In your parlance, perhaps. I am not aware that this pronunciation is in general use in conversational British English. The written abbreviation is certainly used, but looks slightly odd in the context of this dialogue unless one assumes it is also spoken that way.
Thank you, everybody. I'm very glad to have a lot of comments.

You all helped me a lot.
