I remember one winter I warmed my car up but it malfunctioned where I could not open my door and I locked myself out of my house. Ugh it was freezing and I had to wait till someone came to help me. Felt like an idiot too.

As for summer and the car in FL all I know is one year I burnt my hand on the steering wheel and got a blister. When you buy groceries you better get home asap or you have melted frozen foods and the fruit is basically ripe.

We bought a couple of those bags from Costco that are insulated for the cold stuff. They work pretty well.

so does any modern car.

they'll warm up faster if you drive them vs. sitting there idling, which is useless and wasteful after @ 10 seconds.

Thank you.

As I said...

You do not want to "warm" your car up, no matter where you live. It's a very bad idea unless your car is an antique. Modern fuel injection has changed everything.
Why is everything so difficult, lately? I thought this was a helpful place to be and not the debate forum. When starting a car turns into a fight, it's time for me to move on. Done.

To simply answer the question at hand... It gets very hot in FL in the summer time.

Daily temps in the lower to mid 90s with high humidity.

That's about all that can be said.
