Totally understand you not wanting to drive it through the winter. A lot of people don't really get how brutal it can get up here. You really need AWD. Also you have to take off part of the intake otherwise condensation can build around the O2 sensor and cause an engine light to go off, for winter driving in Winnipeg there are just as many things that you need to to as store it.
My car came with an "Advanced Battery Charging System" from birchwood, is that what your talking about. Also for everyone suggesting to drive it during the winter, we get so much snow in Winnipeg and I'm not very fond of the idea of using my car as a plow, I just spent too much money on this car to do that.

Over inflate the tires to prevent flat spots. Consider a car cover just to be safe.
