As someone who lives in a generally-mild climate I welcome the rare (to me) "snowflake" warning. I live on a winding country road and there is one curve which retains moisture and it occasionally gets 'black ice', which manages to wipe out at least a couple of cars each winter. Although the 37°F (2.8°C) alarm trigger is perhaps a wee bit high, I, for one, appreciate this warning.

I have slid on ice many times when it was 37 degrees. I like the chime.

Hi Folks,

The near freezing temps ding was un-nerving till I knew what it was!

For me, the least favorite 'feature' is the right/rear pillar obstructs vision when merging.
I've learned to lean forward/back to better check what's coming, but am still cautious.

The headlight dimmer is kindof soft, I've learned to be very deliberate with it.
Our other car has a clearly heard/felt 'click' when using the dimmer.

Double the range would be nice, but really, I'm ok with what it does now.

A 1958 VW microbus with the big, cloth sunroof and 25 windows was probably my favorite ride ever.
But for just regular driving, Maeve is the best ever, out of many cars.

Thanks and good health, Weogo
