We spent quite a bit of time driving around in the Jeep today. The seven inches of snow and hard-packed ice on side streets were quite fun.

The Grand was rock-solid and never slipped or slid unless I forced it to. In some ways, it’’s a bit boring. But I’‘ve never been accused of being a live-on-the-edge kinda guy anyway.

The heater and heated seats are awesome; you build up a sweat pretty quick. I hate driving in a coat anyway, so that comes off, even though the temp gauge reads 10 degrees.

Almost a month, 550 miles and counting, and I’‘m still very, very happy. (Well, mostly. We won’‘t talk about the gas mileage.)
