Get a car starter and let it sit in idle for a few? :)

Personally, if there was a car that I was going to baby, I wouldn't drive it in winter. I'm from Alberta.

yeah, but even with a car starter, its gunna be hard (maybe impossible) to turn over on these -30 or -40 days.

Hey Tec, I'm in Canada too. Edmonton, Alberta to be exact. We probably get much of the same weather.

Anyway, I've noticed something with some dealers. They automatically throw in block heaters for Canadian models. I remember this because I didn't want one but it was included. I believe this was the case in my last 2 cars.

I hope they throw it in. They didn't on the car my girlfriend bought a couple years ago. I took a look on the first cold snap and realized that it didn't have one. It just doesn't make sense not to include one in Alberta. You just have to know that turning it over at -35c isn't very good for it, though it has never had a problem starting.
