AWD vans have a lot going for them, but there are a few negatives to consider. One con is the van needs all four tires changed when a tire needs to be changed. The AWD does not do well with tires of different diameters. This does not need to be done on two wheel drive. Drivers that have reviewed the AWD are very complimentary about the traction they get in snow and on bad roads. Traction and the ability to make it through conditions that are a brick wall for other vehicles is the big advantage of the AWD. Being able to make the drive under any circumstances is important to some drivers.
