We've been suffering from a recent spell of snow coupled with extreme cold, and other than the (common on my three) defrosting issue, the car works flawlessly.
I wish it had fresh snow tires, but my well-worn (insert crazed laughter here) Michelins are still keeping me safe.

Gas mileage sucks when there's a bunch of idling, but still better with Mobil premium.

Gas mileage:

--regular around 23MPG (last tank 23.3)
--premium around 26.5MPG (last tank 26.0)

Mobil and Citgo provide best numbers........more testing required :drive:
