I personally like 4WD because I have the ablity to choose between RWD, AWD with Rear Bias, and 50:50 Power distribution.
Rear Wheel Drive is my second favorite, hauls more ass.
AWD and FWD are tied for last. I love AWD, but owning one would be a pain because it consumes quiet a bit of fuel providing power to all 4 wheels, plus I don't get to change the distribution. FWD I dislike because I have honestly never seen or driven a fast FWD car, although I do like how they steer.
I own one and it goes through a lot of gas. about time i look at getting a new vehicle anyway
FWD is a lot of fun for controlled drifts in snow/ice though
I loved my first dodge that had it. Never look back
Best vehicle i ever bought.
You gotta admit. AWD do handle nicely.
I had a crappy assed Pajero a little while back. Diesel turbo & gutless as fuckI literally hated it until we had a shit load of rain that flooded a shitload of roads where I am. That crappy assed Pajero got me home. Even a logging truck wouldn't go through the flood zone I took that 4x4. He turned around and waited it out.
Anything else, gotta be 4x4/RWD.
Never had a small car that needed RWD for power, even in winter. Though I prefer 4WD/RWD overall, i'm driving a 4cyl fwd right now.
Nah, mitsubishi rvr, gutless piece of shit but sticks to the road well. Costs me at least 20 bucks to drive to uni and back, its about time i sold it to be honest.
I agree. The lifted trucks are very annoying. painted ghetto camo and shit.
4x4 is boss, but AWD beats it. you can't steer well with 4x4 because the 2 shafts will grind against each other. with the 3 differentials that AWD provides, it's seamless when you take a hard corner. My 4Runner runs well in 4x4, but when I take a really tight turn (Which is common in Pennsylvania because the streets were drawn up in 1745) my steering radius is cut off and I can hear a really loud grinding sound.
how many miles do you drive each day? I find it hard to believe a Boxer-4 engine goes through fuel really fast.
IIRC I think I put it through about 15 000 km in 6 months
thats an average of ~82 Km a day.
Plus it's hardly the most aerodynamic car in the world.
