What is front-wheel drive vs. rear-wheel drive?


Buying a new car and finding one that is best for your particular set of needs can be difficult. Should you get a truck or a compact car? Front wheel drive or rear wheel drive? The questions can seem endless. That is why our team of experts at Paillé Berthierville located right here in Sorel-Tracy wanted to be sure that you know the difference between rear and front wheel drive vehicles.

The difference in these two car types are where the power to turn your wheels comes from, either the front or back tires. The biggest advantage to rear wheel drive vehicles is that they are so durable. Rear wheel drive vehicles are taken to the shop far less frequently to fix things like broken axles than front wheel drive cars. The biggest advantage to a front wheel drive car is that it is both cheaper to purchase and repair. This means that if something does go wrong, you won't need to pay an arm and a leg to get it fixed.
