Anything near zero and less than 50 miles my temp gauge doesn't get to "normal" 190. My commute this week is 15km (9mi) because the TDI is the only vehicle with gas in it until payday. Heated seats are the only thing that make it remotely doable on the commute. If you sit idling with a TDI you can watch the temp gauge fall in cold weather. The thing is so stingy with fuel at idle.

As for another post about customer service, I wouldn't give a Volvo dealer the merest glimpse of mine given attitudes I have experienced. I might as well have been asking an A-Q member where the pork sausage was.
