I'm okay so far.
But what has the winter done to your car?
I'm just waiting for some ice to break my plastic under-tray again.
(Salt stains and snow on your car don't count.)

My window froze shut causing it come off the regulator and crash into my door, making it impossible for me to close the window. Had to get the window replaced and re-tinted. All covered under warranty

Nothing has gone wrong yet aside from an old battery finally biting the dust.

My throttle is sticking on the Jetta, looks like I'll have to switch back to the factory air box. And the black plastic on the trunk cracked open while I was opening the trunk for the snow brush.....

Surprisingly enough my car is ok.
But then again I can't see what is under my car that could have been damaged when the city of Toronto was kind enough to not plow certain roads.

My cars self esteem is shot! She sees other clean cars and wishes, no she longs for the days when she is clean and looking sexy! Yes those SUV just shoot by, not even looking at her.. bastardos! I say! and when a cute beetle come close.. well its the ugly duckling story all over again.. I ask you dear friends when will all this madness end.. she is tired of wearing her winter boots all the time she wants to have on her summer foot wear.. .. its like a super model wearing sensible shoes.. not my cup of tea...

Re: (speedR)

My Jetta is holding up well, washed the car on saturday after not washing it for about a month (bad boy, bad! Shame on you!!!) got all the salt off and the car still beads water off like a freshly waxed car!!! Thanks to Meguiars!!!!!! Cleaner wax is the bomb! (opps that is my secret)
GTI though is sitting tight in the garage collecting dust.
