I was on a farm. 4WD was not so available then - would have been very useful in snow, but also in spring when the thaws made our country roads virtually impassible at times because of the mud... still I preferred winter to summer because of the summer heat and humidity and with A/C in cars available only as an expensive add-on accessory and only in some vehicles.Hey, I represent that remark... :thumbs_up:
I won't go without AWD on a new vehicle purchase.....it's a life saver in many circumstances during our Winter season here in Minnesota.
There's days I can't get out of my driveway without AWD (or 4WD).
If your in the snow belt I consider it a necessity....otherwise it's not really needed IMHO.
Besides, that AWD emblem is so cool!
Great people in rural Minnesota! :thumbs_up:
