I have a very steep driveway (as do the neighbors on my side of the
street)...mo one in the family has been been able to get up it in the snow with
RWD (neither can any of my neighbors). FWD, for what ever reason, climbs right
on up most times without even slipping a bit. So, I don't know if I agree with
your assessment on that one. Maybe the newer RWD vehicles with traction
control, etc. do better. But FWD without traction control seems to work fine.

Probably some truth to that. Add in the need for space for a family that
simply isn't available in a "car" any more and there you go!
