Unless you have a heated garage. Snow ice build up freezes wipers and blocks intake vents causing fogging of windows and significantly reduced fresh airflow. Windows fog up. Air inside vehicle is stale and stuffy. Service Manager says there is nothing that can be done other than bring it inside a heated garage and let it melt. So if you don’t have a heated garage and live in a snow/ice zone like me, then do not buy this vehicle. In over forty years of owning vehicles, this by far is the most poorly designed and cheaply made. And you get no help from GM Service techs.
