In Georgia the temperature will usually get in the teens overnight, but very rarely in the single-digits. So I've never had any problems starting any of my cars in the mornings. Since I'll be moving up to PA, and the temp looks like it regularly gets to the low single-digits and negative digits, what should I worry about in regards to getting my truck going in the mornings? I've heard of cars not being able to start but never paid any attention to this. I have a 2002 Avalanche that I'll be driving up there.

I have a 02 Avalanche also. I live in WI and have never had an issue with the cold. I don't have a block heater or anything. You should be ok.

Thanks! I'm doing fine up here, the Av is a great vehicle anyway.
