刚来美国时，我开的是一辆前驱的马自达6。进入冬季，有天下班高峰突然毫无预兆下起了小雪，上千辆车堵在了50号公路上：只要一点小坡，前面的车打滑，后面的就谁也过不去了。我见势不妙提前下了高速，结果没走多远也困在了雪地里，本来想强行调头绕行，结果旁边的居民说，你还是停这儿吧，前面刚有辆警车掉沟里了……最后还是信小信开着当时刚买的 ML350 过来接我回家。从那以后，我就坚定了「只买四驱车」的决心。

车罩 Car Cover
当时我的两辆车都结了冰碴子，很心疼，并且担心融化时水会渗入车厢。其实如果提前买一个车罩，就没有这个问题了。我2018年买了 single house，终于有车库啦！如果你车停在露天、并且所在区域冬天经常下雪，想爱惜一点的话可以买个车罩，根据车型选好尺寸即可。
