How UK weather and roads are secretly damaging your car and how to prevent it
Winter weather is not only difficult to drive on, it is also secretly damaging your car.
Firstly, if you leave your engine idle in a bid to warm it up in the morning then you could be causing it unnecessary strain and increase wear and tear.
The road surface themselves could also be causing harm to the vehicle.
