Yeah, though the germans are still about all wheel drive in their performance cars....I'd like a more traditional power train.

Well, I'm not saying they should offer it standard, just as an option because it improves the performance potential.

My relatives who for years were always defending RWD, now have caved in and got 4wd and say that they wished they would have switched over years ago.

Well, I'm glad to hear that you have had better luck, but my experience is that RWD does not work very well. Being that I've been home now for a couple weeks and that ice came down, I decided that I would give my car a day off and used my family's '87 S-10 4X4 in the ice. I tried driving it in 2wd, and everytime the wheels would begin spinning like crazy and these are all-terrain tires as well and not performance slicks by any extend of the imagination. It felt down right dangerous on the road so I drove it in 4wd. I even tested it on the roads that had not been cleared yet, and it was a night and day difference. Since my parents went to FWD, they have never considered another RWD vehicle and their considering to get an AWD vehicle for their next vehicle and I've decided that what will replace my Intrepid will have AWD as well.
