re: Loose Rear


So now I have my snows on.  On wet roads the back of the car feels as if it
wants to come around and it will if I provoke it.


Since this is my first winter with quattro (or any) AWD, I chalked this up for normal. Now this thread is starting to make me wonder....

I find that my '93 CSQW acts very "rear-wheel drive" like and have to watch the throttle on corners or the back end will break loose. Since I have been a front driver since the mid-80's, this behavior is a little weird to me. I am surprised that an AWD setup on an otherwise FWD car results is this. Perhaps I should look at my tires (Pirelli P200 I think) which the dealer reported as OK when I inquired about rotation, etc.

So my question is, should my quattro wagon act rear wheel drive like in its tendency to oversteer?
