Mine has been in the trailer sleeping since mid October.  It has a dead battery so it's not going anywhere anytime soon.

One of these things is not like the others. One of these things just doesn't belong, can you tell which thing is not like the others. By the time I finish my song? ...  Tongue

My Charger is a senior citizen now. I worry if it's icy it could slip and brake a hip. So unless the roads are clear it stays in the garage.

 Back in the days when I  drove them year round, winter tires, sandbags in the trunk and slowing down helped.

Depends on how cold it gets in your area. Go down to the local mechanic that you have in town and ask him would be your best bet.
I wish they would sell your 4 door chargers over here in Australia, then it would give me a good reason to upgrade my 93 Volvo 240.

I usually have enough when I drive a new Charger as a rental car in the states. No need to drive it overhere.

If you live in a salt dumping area, about the only thing you might want to do beyond regular winterizing (antifreeze) would be extra undercoating or rust preventative.  It should be ready to go as it came from Dodge.

There's a million other reasons to upgrade from a Volvo.
Don't let us not getting the new Charger be your excuse or you'll be stuck with it forever.....
