I HATE FRONT WHEEL DRIVE IN THE SNOW!

Seriously, I would rather have a well set up RWD vehicle for driving in the snow. I just feel I have way more control over a RWD vehicle in the snow than a FWD. With RWD I can steer with the throttle, once the tires start spinning on a FWD steering is nonexistent. Ultimatly, I'd prefer a nice 4X4 in the snow, but most of the time it would be RWD because I'm not going to "lock in the hubs" until the snow is up to the bumper.

Just ranting after three straight days of snow and my POS Buick Century.

If You Need More Control Get Better Tires Or Take Other Methods.

I'm just saying, all things being equal (tires, weight, performance, etc.), I'd rather have RWD over FWD in the snow (or anywhere)

This is precisely why I'm fixin to buy me a AWD car.

I also HATE FWD in the snow!

With RWD, if you're sliding, at least the car goes where you point it!

With FWD, if you're sliding, it doesn't matter what you do with the steering wheel, the car goes straight.

With AWD, you're not sliding.
