Winter in the Massachusetts definitely was not boring. The abundance of rainfall and all the ensuing trouble there - snow porridge, severe frosts, blazed among the two feet of snow piled "path" for cars. For a whimsical-class machines such conditions, of course, become unbearable. The same happened to my Mercedes S180 (Blue Efficiency). I want to describe my impressions of what this car brings stress as snowy weather with its attendant troubles.
The first thing that should be noted is the technical characteristics of the car just in height. No extraneous noise or emergency outages of elements even in extreme cold. Start with 1-2 turns even at -15. Maybe this is and my merit - care and skillful treatment.
Of course with the advent of winter was it eats up more fuel, per liter and a half more. I was not particularly concerned, because the cold is the cold. But this is how the city covered with a thick blanket of snow and cold, I hit a little bit worried, because too low a clearance famous Mercedes "amazingly" played a role in the formation of the icy bottom. In addition, having a sports kit, between the tire and wheel on it, also stick a pile of snow, slowly hardens to a state of ice blocks. As a result, every bump and the wheels because of the lack of compensating options, hit on the cob, which simply shakes salon. Such an effect even on relatively smooth asphalt, so I went, well, at the minimum speed. This problem was not the only one in which the main accused of the case acted snow. The second annoyance was the accumulation of ice in the rear bumper, which has seemed specifically designed for this cavity. There so much ballast accumulates that I had to be in constant tension, concerning about what may just fall off the bumper and its cargo. One time, I remember having my car wash - ripped, but not without difficulty. However, after a couple of days bumper turned out to be loaded with snow again. I’ve decided not to tempt fate and to the end of the winter moved to Chevrolet Cruz.
design, engine, suspension, motion - all on top.
not adapted to snowy roads of Massachusetts.
