I’ve been following the same routine every winter since 2009. I’ve driven a Mercedes CLK followed by an SLK every summer, and I’ve switched it with the Jeep every time it threatens to snow in the winter. I only have a one-car garage, so it’s been annoying at best. The summer sun is getting replaced by rain clouds and chillier temperatures, so I traded the SLK in for a 2009 Audi A4 Cabriolet.
It has Quattro, Audi’s version of full-time all-wheel drive. It’s also a convertible. It’s the best of both worlds! It’s pretty loaded, but I had to replace the miserable factory head unit with a new one. The car only had 38,000 miles on it and it’s in fantastic shape. Come on, snow!
