Today it's only going to be 13 degrees outside in Manchester, NH. My Subaru with its heated seats and cold weather package is more than up to the task of keeping me safe and warm. Today I'm heading out to run a couple errands and this car can do just about anything. Yesterday while driving, I hit a patch of black ice. I thought that was the end of my Subaru's short life. But, with its VDC, and AWD I managed to swerve left and right and avoid hitting anything and drove it on home unscathed. I know if I was in my old vehicle, a 2004 Scion Xb , it may have been a different story. But that was yesterday.
