Getting an eco-friendly car is something we should all aspire to do. Not only are they much better for the environment but they're generally cheaper to run, too.

There has been a lot of debate about whether you should let your car warm up on cold winter mornings. Some people say that it is bad for he environment and even bad for the engine while others say that when the car warms up gradually through idling, it is better for the car and for the driver who does not want to drive a cold car. So whats the truth? Which way is the best for the car, driver and the environment? http://scottsdalemuffler.com/arizona/letting-car-warm-cold-winter-mornings/
