​If you're looking to enjoy the utmost confidence in your vehicle when the weather takes a turn for the worse, having a vehicle equipped with all-wheel drive can help. AWD offers added traction and stability when roads turn slick in the rain or snow, so you can take advantage of all-weather capability and an extra layer of surefootedness.

What to Know Before You Buy a Used Car with AWD

  • Winter tires are still recommended: While AWD certainly gives you an edge in harsh weather, your car will still benefit from the right tires in winter. AWD helps, but it's still important to be cautious, vigilant, and well-equipped when the roads get bad.
  • Traction boost at a stop: A vehicle's AWD system's primary function is to provide better traction so that you can get moving from a standstill more easily. This system does not necessarily grant an advantage when stopping or cornering, so it's imperative to drive with caution at all times.
  • Fuel economy: AWD models tend to trade a bit of their fuel economy for extra traction, so it's something to consider when shopping for an AWD vehicle.
