It's really weird how you read so many things on this forum.

When I took a test drive, it was really cold, so I didn't get any ASS during my test drive. According to my CA, this was normal. Also, based on what I have read on this forum and in the owners manual, I shouldn't expect to get any ASS when it's really cold.

But then people like yourself say you're getting ASS all the time even when it's below 37.

As usual, most CAs have only a peripheral understanding of these vehicles, and don't know what they're talking about. Mine also works well below 37 degrees, but as another poster pointed out, the engine has to be nice and warmed up. The 37 degree parameter is not a disqualifying factor. The computer looks at a multitude of variables and then determines when ASS will/won't kick in. How many and exactly what ingredients the computer uses to "bake the cake", I don't know. But I can tell you for sure, that the 37 degree temp isn't a definite ASS killer.
