Can't say about the equipment used in the U.S. but in Canada I drove the "Fruit Haul" from the West coast to the to the lake head one winter ( +45 F. to -35 F). Load, start the "reefer, set temp,and go so long as the unit keeps running all good.

My first car was a 1969 VW bug. No heat..........ever........no matter what. I would often drive down the road scraping frost off the INSIDE of the windshield. The only way to prevent the inside frost would be to stop breathing.

Only -12 below this morning, a high of 9 expected, a heatwave for sure! My dad died when I was 6 in a car accident, Mom bought VW Bugs from that day forward, they were just like little hard top jeeps. The heaters worked the first 2 years (barely) but the vent ducts would rot out quickly in NY winters so Ive felt those cold vinyl seats your talking about many times! They were great cars but lacked a few things like space and heat that would have made life a bit nicer for me and my 2 sisters on long vacations across the country in it.

I am hoping to have a bit better start this morning, sitting in my frozen truck at the side of the road in -15 without heat for half an hour sucked bad! By the time I was feeling heat, I was shaking like a Gay guy at a weenie roast! Could have been much worse if I didnt keep a blanket and extra gloves in the truck.

Lesson learned or relearned, always buy a vehicle with real gauges in it! If I had driven until an idiot light lit up and it overheated, the outcome wouldnt have been nearly as fun as it turned out!
