If you are shopping for a vehicle, you may be wondering if you should get a front-wheel-drive or a rear-wheel-drive system. Here is a look at the main advantage and disadvantage of each system.

First, there is the front-wheel-drive system. One of the big advantages of this system is that there are fewer parts to deal with since both the engine and the transmission are in the same general area. The one big downside is that a front-wheel-drive vehicle will tend to suffer from understeer.

A rear-wheel-drive system has the transmission located at the rear of the vehicle. This spaces out the engine parts and makes it less expensive to maintain and repair. Also, steering tends to be easier for a rear-wheel-drive system. The biggest downside is that you lose some backseat space to make room for the transmission and the transmission tunnel.
