Block heater available on 2013 US Elantra (1.8)? Yes, no, maybe?

In past post's it was determined (perhaps incorrectly) that the block heater from Canadian dealers would not fit cars in the States. I found this odd. However, the new Elantra GT with the 1.8nu is available in the States with a block heater. Just wondering if something changed or the original post about it not fitting USA model was wrong.

On a side note I did not find link in accessories. By the way! I'm not really in Saska. I'm in the states.

That's my feeling too Xion. However one member tried to have the dealer put one in that he ordered from Canada and it would not fit because of some very small protrusion in the mounting hole. It's possible that he had a bit of casting protruding. I think I am going to order one from a dealer in Canada and make it fit.

I doubt that! it's not in their financial interest to make the engine different for Canada but we never know. Anyway is a block heater really necessary where you live? I had one on my previous car and used it a few times, it's nice to have the engine get warmer faster but last winter it has not been that cold here in Quebec, a blcok heater is necassary when you live in Alaska, Yukon, Northwest Territories and Nunavut but winters in southern Canada are not as cold as they used to so I'm wondering if I should get one installed.

Well, we do get -25 to -30 sometimes. I'm just across the border from you in NYS. It's nice to have when it does get this cold. Instant heat for the cabin and defroster. The car is outside so this does help.

Indeed. I may have one installed this fall because I'm used having one on all my previous cars, without it my engine is still cold when I get to work.
