SeanC is right you will regret not having the RWD in the summer months. If you are a good winter time driver and with a set of studded snow tires you will be fine.

I live at the other end of the state, so usually better conditions, but San Diego it ain't. Have pretty much what BrRich has, but no studs, as icy roads are usually not a problem.

Especially if you're only looking to go out after the plow, absolutely no need for awd, unless there are some very steep hills which you must navigate.

For my first six years I drove year-round with Blizzaks and never could not go.
I love my car as much today as the day I bought it
