I have never owned a Toyota product and wondered if anyone else has noticed in cold weather their vehicle has extended crank to start up in the morning on their xB. I know Corollas have a bulletin out for it and wondered if anyone else is have the same issue I am. I have a 06 xB with 3,000miles.

Thanks,
Mike

mine takes a second longer too, but every car, truck and suv I have owned does the same thing at 19f.

It's normal :)

I think all you Cali guys should come stay a day or 2 in the midwest......You will then know what COLD is..

BTW, Every car I've had does that as well. Since every car I've ever started does it, eh....No biggie here.

I grew up in Glendora, I'll deal with the cold anyday rather than live back down there! :p

Plus snowmobiling is a blast, and I still got dunes in the summer to ride the shee on.

yeah i noticed when we had a cold snap, the box didnt want to wake up in the morning.......if you get a battery with a few more cranking amp's it should do the trick....

Yea they take longer in the cold. Mine is going on it's third winter, and it's been good except for when my battery died because of the cold. The engine was okay for the most part in that storm. Dont worry, they all do it!

I'll say it to. Longer crank time in the cold is perfectly normal in any car.

We had a couple days down around 0 degrees already this winter up here in Minneapolis. Normally we get about 2 weeks worth of days well below zero.

This is my second winter with my xB and shes still going strong.
