negative 40???!!!!


my record is right at 0, after I had been driving for an hour,the interior temp was maxed out and I let the car sit at least 15 minutes before spraying it, even with the hot water that comes out of the sprayer I could not wipe it down before it turned to icecicles (spelling needed)

Well, I don't even know what temp my thermostat is.. when I got the car, the thermostat was shot, so I quickly ran out and got one thats 'for the car'... I was more concerned about getting home to Edmonton from Taber than what temp the thermostat was.. lol...

She heats up quickly and doesn't overheat now, so I'm happy... its pretty bad when its -10oC and you car can overheat doing 110km on the highway... lol
