And that is why I live in AZ, I get to drive all year round.:smile:
I also live in NE Ohio. I bought the ST as a fun daily driver and I use it as that all year long. I do admit the salt bugs me but that’s the life of a car in Cleveland.I live in Ohio, my new ST is my daily, I don't understand putting a 20k car up for winter...I love it but its nothing special for me to be doing that to. LOL.
My Jeep is a nice change of pace, plus my ST needs to be in good shape when I retire in six years. I agree the ST is nothing special, but for me it's no big deal to put her up when the weather is crappy. I plan on driving it several years after my retirement. My Jeep was $900, and the insurance is dirt cheap. Every Summer I tackle a new project with it. This Summer was paint and I freshened up the exterior. I get why people don't want a Winter beater, but I enjoy an older car to work on.I live in Ohio, my new ST is my daily, I don't understand putting a 20k car up for winter...I love it but its nothing special for me to be doing that to.

Right, often it's not you or the car you're driving, but the other pinheads on the road. I lost a beautiful '06 WRX when it was less than two years old that way. A 16 year old girl driving a Cavalier for the first time in the snow came into me head on. I hated to lose that car, and this was in '08 when they moved on to the next gen. I had it at Stage 2, and it was a wonderful car. Trying finding a used WRX that hasn't been beat on, and I didn't like the new body style. I had to move on from WRXs, and I've never had another. Ugh...I wish I had a winter beater! I'm not a big fan of driving in the snow and now that I have a nice car ('17 ST3) I'm a little paranoid about it. I drive cautiously in the snow but plenty of other people do not, those are the ones I worry about.
