Some time ago, I know very little about cars. Some of my friends used to intimidate me with car terminologies that I wished I know some basics. I recently got involved with cars and have to do a lot of research which have made me a bit versatile about cars, their parts and functionalities. In this article, I will share the knowledge I have about some automotive abbreviations. Feel free to add yours at the end of this article as no one knows it all.
4WD: four-wheel drive. This is a kind of system that powers all four wheels for improved traction mostly during off-road use or adverse road conditions.
FWD: front-wheel drive. This drive system help provides power to the front wheels of the car only.
FCW: Forward collision warning. When a collision with another vehicle is imminent, this system serves as a form of alert to warn the driver.
