No, I am not talking about the ever popular 80’s hair style the mullet. I am talking about front wheel drive vs. rear wheel drive vehicles.
Front wheel drive vehicles are known to be less expensive, more compact, better on gas, and better in snow, mud and wet roads. They also have the advantage of predictable handling which helps you to Play It Safe! A disadvantage to front wheel drive is that it has poor acceleration and less torque, so if you are a thrill seeker you probably want to look into rear wheel drive. Rear wheel drive vehicles have better weight transfer during acceleration and better braking, giving you that nice little “butterflies in the stomach” feeling when taking sharp turns.
