Funny guy, but FWD is good. My truck is a perfect example. You cant drive Rear wheel drive in the winter easily. Sadly, my truck is not 4x4, and only rear-wheel, its got about 200HP, and 0 wieght. All the wieght is on the FRONT wheels. So I have to throw 320 punds of sand or something in the back, where as a front wheel drive car has that wieght of the engine already. And it's a lot cheaper. Someone Has a nice Mercedes AMG or something, has traction control and everything, then why do people park them for the winter?
Diesels do last forever. 120,000, thats nothing. My friend has a gas powered chevy 1500 that's lasted 300,000+ miles. A diesel, can last past 500,000 if the rest doesnt fall apart, lol. Diesel is like an oil, and helps the engine, gas, on the other hand, corrodes the engine.
