Winter Start Up

I have a 2010 Mustang GT & I wanted to ask a question about the vehicle it's self. I was wondering if it really matters or not to warm up the car before driving when it's cold? If I don't warm it up, does it harm it in any way?

Depends what type oil u are using. Full synthetics bond to motor parts to protect against cold starts so if using a good full synthetic oil no it should not Hurt ur car. If using regular motor oil then yes let it warm up before driving.

It hesitates when you gun it when it's cold, because exactly that. It's cold. The normal temp range is where everything works at optimum, anywhere outside that not so much. Meaning it'll start, run, and go but won't be interested in gunning it till its warm.
