Depends how far up the East coast you are. FWD/AWD ratio is very much based on latitude. I don't think I've seen a FWD for sale up here in Idaho apart from the first handful that arrived before the AWD, and good luck finding an AWD in South Texas (one of the larger dealers has one AWD, and it's the last Taos left - nobody wants it!).It has been difficult for me to find an SEL FWD on the East coast. The AWD that I test drove put a bad taste in my mouth because the way it bucked as it was shifting between gears. Anyone have any insight why the FWDs are so hard to find?
