    Dead in the water at 25 degrees farenheit

    Used the car yesterday - 45 minutes to and 45 minutes back. Won't start this morning so called roadside. 25 degrees here in D.C. Shouldn't matter. I checked to see if anything was left on. Can't see anything.

    Definitely. I always leave all the doors, trunk and hood (no lights there) wide open in the garage overnight after I wash the car and dry the edges and crevices of those panels so any little bit of water left in a crack can evaporate.

    It would turnover but not enough juice to start. Dealer has it and will call me maņana. Sounds like the battery was defective. Obviously 25 Fahrenheit is nothing (having grown up in Minnesota). Loaner is a silver 2013 with the 6. Interesting motor, but still like the 4. Steering is very dampened although I noted they had the front tires at 30 psi.

    Hello bluztoo,

    I am sorry to hear that your ATS wouldn’t start this Monday morning. I am glad to hear that the dealership is taking a look into what the concern was and have given you a loaner for the time being. Please keep us updated as to what the dealership says when they reach out to you about the diagnosis.
