It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas. Well, with the snow comes the challenges of driving around in it. I am old enough to remember when your choices were 4x4’s and rear wheel drive cars. Now the majority of the vehicles produced are front wheel drive (FWD). With the weight of the engine over the drive wheels, FWD vehicles get around in the snow great. Though there are a lot of people who need 4x4’s just to get out of their driveways and into town. Also, if you pull any sort of trailer, a FWD might not be a good choice as the weight of the trailer takes traction away. Once

again, when considering purchasing your next vehicle, remember how many things you need it to do.

Merry Christmas & Happy New Year!
