Yeah when I left the house this morning it was -8, even with the remote start running for 10mins I had to use that extra tug.

I had frost on the Jeep but the door opened right up. Last year I ripped the door handle off of my chevy tracker after leaving it parked for 5 days while I was in texas. Same style of door handle as the Reney. I ended up on my ass too. Sad day that was.

First really cold spell (about zero deg F) with my 2018 Rene Latitude. Started right up, I'm glad to say. Yes, water froze along the weather stripping and I had to pull to break the thin ice gathered there. Nothing new.

It was about 5º here this morning (felt like -7º), and I had to pull a bit harder than usual to open up the door. I didn't think to use the remote start, so it was totally cold when I started it up. It was ROARING as I drove away, it sounded like a semi with the mechanical fan stuck on. The MultiAir system is a bit noisy when it's cold...

Couldn't get my 1.4L to start yesterday in Chicago, was about -20F when I tried. Wasn't too surprised. Went back inside and poured myself another cup of coffee.

Started up this morning (8 degrees F) just fine.
