I'm doing it simply because its easier to transport my kid to and from work in an SUV than a convertible. But I do drive it on weekends sometimes since there is no salt or ice here. If it were a colder climate, I'd definitely be keeping her tucked away. Since I got it in September, I've only put a couple thousand miles on it. How many of you drive a different car in the winter? Or if it is your beater, what are you keeping in the garage?
