THey should make the car for the market, not just make something and hope someone buys it. In America it was a bit shocking for me to spend some time up Nawrth. I notice many places had plug ins for block heaters in parking lots. Cars came with block heaters and many models offered were AWD.

Down South you dont see or hear of block heaters and you have to special order AWD on a vehicle that offers it as an option.

I find my sidekick is much more controllable in 4wd even on dry pavement, but they caution against that in the book. Id want an awd vehicle, but to find one thats also an eco vehicle is next to none.

Granted some people use to import the hijet vehicles and get them registered for road use, those were few and far between.
