Well, I guess I have to go against the grain on this one. The only thing I dislike about my SSEi is that it is FWD. I will welcome a RWD Bonnie with open arms. A RWD car handles Totally different than a FWD, and handles better too. My SSEi is my first FWD car, and while I must say its manners on the road are top notch, it still has the characteristic FWD traits, like 'Drift', torque steer (not often, but it happens) and understeer. But is MUCH better than my dads riviera and my Girlfriends car.

I have lived in Upstate NY all my life, and really like RWD in the winter. All my RWD cars have or had Posi and I mount some high quality snows on them and they go when most FWDs cant. For the masses FWD is king, but with some skill, finesse, and paitence RWD is AOK in the winter. You cant beat a powerslide around the corners.

PS, there is a reason why BMW and Mercedes are still RWD.
