Re: Winter Commute

Agree, 46 miles will never be a problem in the Kia. Ever! My wife commutes 80 miles (one way) with hers, she made it even the one day we had sub-zero temperatures (farenheit).

If you drive a lot, and need to charge the car during the day for further use in the evening, like us, you can get a special...
