    Yes, you are right. RWD have less maintenance cost as you don't have issues of axel and other related stuff. I assume that RWD are more powerful and reliable but don't know whats the negative points of RWD and positive points of FWD. I'v heard, fuel economey is one of the factors.

    heard the same factor about fuel economy but the real thing which FWD offer is less build cost which means for profit for manufacturer

    Fwd have comparatively better pick as less energy is required to move axle than differential but as the differential gets old it makes noise like old buses n truck

    FWD have better pick in most case if you have ever driven bettle (foxy) the car had the advantage of rear placed engine and had much better pick compared to similar era 1.5l car

    the only set back in the rwd car is if you dont know how to drive it you end up in a wall or a pole(older models non traction control ones)

    I have seen Corollas RWD upto model 1982 in Villages used as Taxis running on converted Diesels 1C, 2C, 1N, CD17 etc. and these have clocked even 1 Million km. Still Runnuing Fine. On discussion with their owners, I came to know that due to absence of front Axles, these require less maintenance even with highly loaded converted diesel engines on front and require front suspension repair less often. On the other hand, drive shaft and differentials need maintenace as per my knowledge. But still these cars are more rugged.

    I thing the reason is absence of front axle a rwd car have just drive the car straight but a FWD have to steer the car as well so A FWD while cornering changed angle of weight act on axle just extra burden on axle

    RWDs are tokyo drift type cars bro! Just put a heavy engine in it and you'd be ready to rule the world.

    They're really rugged and can take a lot of abuse before asking for some expensive repairs, even if the car is a solid axle design. The roads of the rural parts of pakistan can ruin a FWD but a RWD won't face any damage, literally.

    another thing is the balance and handling of RWD cars, If FWD the weight of transmission axle and engine all lies on the front wheels, but in RWD the weight of the drive train is distributed and is more on the front ones so the rear wheels are easily rotated. that's why they use it in RWD in super cars, specially the ones used for racing purposes.

    But it is good for dry roads only, try using one on rainy or snowy roads and you'll get to know what real fun is, even Cruise controls can't help in such situations.
