Are you in the market for a new car?

Do you have a lot of questions that you need answers to before making a big decision of purchasing a new car? Well this article is going to help answer a few of those questions that you might have.

First you need to ask yourself what kind of vehicle do you need?

Are you in position or location where you need an all-wheel drive car because of roads or weather? If you aren’t you might be dogging a bullet!

There is a lot of debate on whether an all-wheel or 4-wheel drive car needs more maintenance, but we are going to break down that 411 for you.

Facts about all wheel drive

When you are driving a 2-wheel or front wheel drive car you are saving yourself wear and gas on your vehicle. The term 4-wheel drive means that your engine is pushing gas and pressure to all four tires of your car to move or stop the car. With a front wheel drive car, you are only sending gas to the front two wheels. This means that just by the nature of the vehicle’s design you are using less gas and you only create wear on the front end instead of at all four points of your car.

With all-wheel cars there is a higher chance that more can break because of the continuous wear that breaks down your engine faster than if you were to be driving a front-wheel drive car.

Did you know that there are even some models of all-wheel drive cars that use front-wheel drive configurations? The only modification is that the engine still sends power to the rear wheels but only when your vehicle loses traction? This tells us that front-wheel drive cars are a better option – it also means that your tires last longer! So long as you rotate them once or twice a year.
