I recently got a job that is about a mile from my house. Should I be worried about driving such short distances and not letting the car get to operating temperature on a regular basis?
I'd walk or ride a bike. It's not good as there will be condensation in the oil and exhaust from such short start ups.
Argh, I thought a trip back and forth from work was bad enough, but now you've just doubled the problem! If you're only putting low mileage on the car like that with such short trips on a daily basis, you're probably better off leasing. At the end of the lease, turn it in and let the next person deal with your car. Other than that, I'd buy a Honda Grom lol. It never rains in Southern CA. On the rare occasion it does, it's Challenger time.I would bike or walk, but it is uphill getting there and I like to come home for lunch.
