Rear Weel Drive isn't all that bad, it's much more predictable/controllable than Front Wheel Drive. I have a 06 Dodge Charger and was surprised at first at how it slid a bit in the snow when I first got it, but discovered as I got used to it that the sliding and handling was very predictable and controllable. Now I actually prefer it over FWD. With FWD you initally get better traction, but once you do lose traction the breakaway is much more abrupt and since all the weight is up front you will lose control of the car quicky. That doesn't happen with RWD. You get plenty of warning.Report it
