What's the Difference Between FWD and RWD Vehicles?

When choosing between front-wheel-drive and rear-wheel-drive, it's best to know the pros and cons of each. At Anastos Motors, we want to help you make an educated decision when purchasing a pre-owned car from our inventory.

Rear-wheel-drive powers the car through the rear axle. Rear-wheel-drive cars tend to handle better and be more forgiving if you accidentally drive through a pothole. Since the weight of the engine isn't near the rear wheels, traction can be an issue, especially with poor road conditions.

Front-wheel-drive sends power to the front wheels. The weight of the engine helps front-wheel-drive cars maintain good traction. However, front wheel drive cars tend not to handle as well as rear-wheel-drive, and are more prone to damage if you hit a bump in the road.

Our team at Anastos Motors in Kenosha can help you decide whether front-wheel-drive or rear-wheel-drive will meet your needs. Stop by and speak to a representative today.
