Then came along the SRX which I decided to order FWD again. Since I have a tendency to buy new vehicles yearly or bi-yearly I asked the salesman how much of a hit would I take on the price of an AWD vs FWD. He told me $3,500 for AWD would be worth around $1,500 when I go to trade it back in. Hmmmm I thought do I want to take a $2,000 hit or not??? Mind you if you need or feel safer in AWD by all means get it. Since I was OK with FWD and didn't want to take a hit and loose 2-K on my next trade-in I opted for FWD instead.
I would suggest what ever you do I would wait for the 2012's to show up in mid-August and take one of those for a test drive too.
*One more reason why I don't mind getting a FWD is that my wife and daughter both have AWD vehicles. One is a 2010 Equinox and my wife just got an 2011 GMC Terrian AWD (cyber grey) ;-) So we can exchange vehicles if necessary.

My lease on my Enclave isn't up until early October so I won't take one out just yet..but soon!
For me..I think price will help guide my decision with AWD vs FWD because working from home I truly never need to be on bad roads!
