How cold it should be? I use to drive while -25C to -30C in Quebec with nothing special installed on my Grand Cherokee that time.

They get milder winters than we do in Winnipeg but their record lows are ridiculous in comparison. Think -46*C before windchill takes it lower . Vehicle testing engineers can say all they want about simulated test environments but odd things occur in real world conditions.

Yes this is brutal, I belive gasoline become jelly in such temperture. Warm garage helps? Must be fun, I like real winter as well as real summer ...

Oh agreed definitely. I never want to be in Winnipeg in winter! Northern Alberta can get pretty brutal though. And the days in Edmonton I was referring to I believe were -53 with the wind. We were tied with a weather station in Siberia for those ones!
