If you've been exploring your used car shopping options on Long Island lately, chances are you've seen these acronyms bandied about. And if you're not familiar with automotive terms, it may be difficult to make your decision as to which is best for your needs and lifestyle. Fortunately for you, the team at JTL Auto Sales has been helping drivers from all over Centereach and Smithtown to find the best used cars, trucks, and SUVs for their needs of years now, so we're only too happy to demystify this aspect of automotive design for you.

Now, with the exception of pickup trucks and sports cars, most models come with Front Wheel Drive, or FWD as its most commonly referred to. Now, one of the main benefits of having a used car with front wheel drive is these models are often more efficient than their all-wheel drive rivals. However, many drivers from nearby Farmingville would rate FWD driving dynamics below that of RWD or Rear Wheel Drive vehicles.

In fact, many of our used trucks, cars, and SUVs benefit significantly from a Rear Wheel Drive setup. It delivers a feeling of acceleration that's practically unrivaled and frees up the front wheels to be solely focused on steering, resulting in cornering control that feels much more engaging overall.

Of course, if you're looking for the ultimate in control, you'll want to opt for a used vehicle with AWD, or All-Wheel Drive. This system is the heaviest of the bunch, making the vehicles its equipped to less efficient overall, but their benefits include more control and traction in inclement weather conditions, making them perfect for winter driving throughout the greater Coram, NY area.

Want to try out some RWD, FWD, and AWD vehicles for yourself? Reach out to our team today and we'll be happy to set you up with a test drive here at our Selden, NY used car dealership.
