I would prefer the AWD, yes at the limits of traction, steering feel, and higher weight of the AWD aren't as good as the RWD but I live in an area where I don't need snow tires but travel occastionally for work to areas much farther north where A/S tires and RWD won't cut it and while I realize the AWD and A/S aren't the greatest, my current FWD and A/S are sufficient. I don't want to have snow tires on the whole winter or change out wheels and tires before each trip.
At what point on the street will I wish I had RWD? I guess when I am trying to cut seconds off of my drive across town?
I have a 2nd car which is manual, RWD car that is far better for perfomance driving, why would I care about these lost seconds or the steering feel that isn't as good as it could be?
It's a 4 door Cadillac, not even the most powerful once the V comes out, not an all out track car.
Hopefully they'll invent some way to remove the majority of snow from the streets so that it's even easier to brave the elements in winter!
