    so I had to go look at my car to see this grill motor. What is the intent? air flow? Mine are open when the car s off. I assume the close when you are up to speed. Did you get some error code or cel telling you it was bad?

    Had these on my Dart also and although there were some people that had the motor burn out I never had the problem up here in the snowy great white North. Always was worried when I brought it to the car wash in winter but never had a problem.

    Hope the 200 is the same.

    Every time I go up my driveway in snow I have to use a wooden spoon to clean out the snow that the wheels love to pack inside or else I can't drive the car the next day and it partially melts and then freezes throwing off the balance. First car that I ever had this problem with.
