I can attest to this, though there are limits. If my car is to be used as the measuring stick, it's -40 degrees (C or F, it's the same thing) when the battery goes "nuh-uh, not today".

SCR problems as mentioned. Warranty extended on that but only 5k more miles I guess.

Mine's at 185k km, SCR done and only problem with it currently is a dead parking sensor.
