pmafromca: The SH-AWD system is tried and true and very reliable, but if you don't need all wheel drive, don't buy it. It's an added expense and a potential future maintenance and wear issue. The ride is better in the FWD because you're not pulling around all the extra linkage that's related to driving all four wheels versus only two. However, all wheel drive does benefit you in more than just snow; the added traction will help in rainy conditions, gravel or sand, and in high-speed maneuvers such as passing and quick unplanned lane changes or emergency situations, etc. The gas mileage penalty alone isn't great enough to be a deciding factor, though, in my opinion.Report it
I too am not that tall. Can you tell me how tall you are that the seat does not work for you? Thanks.Report it
Is yours an AWD or the 2-wheel drive, FWD? We are in California and dont really need an AWD, so just confused between an AWD and a FWD. The ride seemed to be better on a FWD. If you have a FWD, what is your experience? Was that a factor in your buying decision?Report it
