I live in GA, so snow is not the issue. Its all about traction. My last car being a charger 392, with tires wider than this car, having AWD makes people cry who have more hp but just sit and spin. While RWD would be fun to get squirelly, the AWD just hooks and goes. You may be able to get it to break loose with traction/stability control off, but its still not easy, even with stage 2 JB4

Almost settled for a RWD from Georgia but I do occasionally visit family in the TriState and my butt puckers with the thought of Snow, no snow tires and RWD O_O.

I had the same dilemma: should I get RWD or AWD. Not many AWD available in California. I loved the spirit of the RWD but, I drive to the Sierra's on several weekends so I decided I had to check out an AWD. I found the AWD to be just a tad bit heavier on the feel however when I turned off Stability and traction control, I didn't notice much difference. I ended up getting the AWD sport edition and am glad I did. Its absolutely a blast to drive and I love the heated steering wheel. The sport comes with aggressive summer tires so I feel much more confident in rain or light snow with the AWD.
