Get over it. It's all in your head. Just drive the TL and you don't even
dwell on whether the F or R wheels are driving. It's the only area, in my
view, where it falls just slightly short of a BMW 3 or 5 series. But the TL
is so much better handling than many other RWD cars such as Firebird,
Camaro, Mustang, M-B, etc. etc.

The weight distribution is more of a factor than which wheels are driving
(with VSA). You're hanging on to an old prejudice. I know. I do it all
the time myself.
