over a week under -20.
This winter in moscow is real cold. And more than a week we experience weather constantly under -20. Well, my 2007 brera 3.2 drives well. No disappointment at all.
Just couple of minor items, i wanted to share.
Rear gear beep is constantly ringing in the morning when the car is still cold. It disappears and works normally during the day after heating and driving for some time.
Couple of days ago, after heating the car and started driving, i had to boost on the way at some point. I saw the engine light blinking, got scared, and soften the pedal. It disappeared, and didn't repeat again. Related with cold or can be another serious issue?
One morning when it was -28, after switching the ignition, an abs fault appeared. Swithced off and turned on again, it didn't repeat.
I have to carry with me a de-frost spray for the frameless side windows to unstick them from the sealants, and use a silicone spray to avoid that.
When the car is cold in morning, the side windows is going up and down a little slower, but i think this is ok because of such cold.
This is my second winter in moscow with my birdie.. 4 wheel drive works perfect but still not so experienced for winter conditions.
Do you guys have any suggestions, or warnings?
