AWD or FWD?

Asked by Sep 20, 2016 at 07:45 PM about the 2014 Buick Encore Leather Group

Question type: Shopping & Pricing

Looking at the 2014 Buick Encore.  I drove an AWD and a FWD model.  
The AWD didn't seem as fun around corners, or as "light".  The FWD was
more fun to drive.  I do live in a snowy area.. but thinking the FWD would
be OK as long as I had good snow tires?  Plus, it would save on gas?

Also concerned about what I'm reading about brake noise.. I have seen
that a few times now.  How would I be able to tell if the one I purchase had
the "kit" installed?

Thank you

FWD with snow tires would be fine. AWD is good if you don't like slipping, even in the rain. Not sure on the brake noise your concerned about.
