E320 CDI in the Cold

My 2005 E320 CDI is the second diesel MB that I've owned. I just got back from a round trip from Orlando, FL to Minneapolis. Though worried about how it would perform in the cold, the car ran perfectly. The return trip was hair-raising, as we drove through a heavy snow storm on both sides of Chicago and ice through much of Wisconsin. While behind a snow plow, we took several chips in the windshield from the sand being spread and the car was covered with a heavy layer of salt. After a good wash/wax, the car looks no worse for the wear.

Now I'll have to have the passenger seat checked. The seat belt alarm continues to chime though there is no passenger.

All things considered, a very positive experience. We definitely got our white Christmas.
