I didn't think of a loaner, it would be nice to not have to put my car through those brutal cold starts. My main worry is that I tried starting my car in this terrible weather 20-30 times, I guess I just figured the block heater would or was working. I don't want to have damaged my car.

To be fair the dealership was extremely nice, and kept the car indoors for me the whole day, and made sure it was warm when I left. But once I get it home tonight it's back to the same ball game.

I am a bit peeved about the hours I've missed at work though and bumming rides, it's money out of my pocket.
