Those people have no idea how to drive then. Ive owned one FWD and during the winter I hated it. If you ever lose control on ice with RWD you can recover , with FWD hope your lucky. I read about a comparison a police department did between the Crown Vic and the new FWD police cars, I think this one was an Impala, the driver put both cars into skids/spins and every time recovered the Crown Vic, the Impala like every other FWD is almost impossible to recover quickly from a spin on icy roads. Even my friends who own FWDs (Monte Carlo, Intrepid, Neon) will agree that RWD handles much better on ice and snow.Most people I know drive fwd cars simply for the traction advantage on ice and snow
It's because of the weight of the cars!Physics my friend.Cool Dude said:It seems that my Contour (FWD) can hold a sharp turn at high speeds better than what The Thunderbird can. I don't know if that has to do with the FWD or if it is just the way the car is set up. I would probably take my Contour around a sharp turn at a higher speed before I would the Thunderbird. I feel as if I have more control over it.

FWD Sucks ***. i can say that cause i have that and i hate it in all things but freeway pulls.
drag - AWD
track - RWD
roll - FWD
simple as that. even on freeway pulls fwd sucks, i sometimes have to feather the throttle cause at 20psi the wheels still want to break loose at 70.
