2020 Passport Sport (looking to purchase soon)
Discussion Starter · #1 ·
My wife and I have been looking for a replacement for our 2016 Subaru Outback. It's been a good car overall, but as we near 90K miles, we are looking to replace it before we hit 100k miles. We are deciding if we should go with a FWD verses an AWD model? Our Subaru ate tires... every year and a half (even after recommended rotations, and driving 20k a year) we have been replacing 60K mile tread life tires every year and a half! We were told it's because of the AWD system causing a hiring wear life on the tires. So... we've been debating between FWD and AWD on the Passport. The $1,900 difference isn't so much of a factor as the tire life. We live in a snow climate, but have many friends with FWD SUV's that fair well with a good set of snow tires. MPG isn't that far off between the FWD and the AWD. Any input would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!
