    The turbo runs rich af too, so if you're worried about it, don't buy one...

    Not as bad as carburated engines with manual chokes but they still run rich when cold.

    Same here. Start it up, put my seatbelt on, put it into gear and go. It's how I've driven all of my cars in temps as cold as -45c, though on slower startups I do give the car a few extra seconds for the RPM to settle.

    And honestly thatís what most normal people mean by ďwarmed upĒ.
    You're right. My bad banging on the 70 degree thing. He's not expecting 70 degrees in 10 idle minutes. He wants to know how long it takes to get to 70... I wouldn't really know... better question would be when are you comfortable? LOL
    I idle my car a lot and it starts blowing warmer air significantly quicker once I start moving then it does without a brief warmup.

    The main thing imo that missing is the ambient temperature. Is it 50į F (some consider this cold) or 5į F (actually cold). Makes a big difference in how long itíll take a car to provide a warm cabin.

    I had a Jeep Grand Cherokee at one point and I will absolutely agree it warmed up fairly quick just idling in the driveway...until later in it's life.

    My CX-5 on the other hand? Warms up much faster just driving it. I don't understand why anyone would just leave it idling in the driveway unless they want to do so for 20+ minutes. 5 minutes of driving on the other hand, and my CX-5 heater is heating it up nicely.

    Because gas is cheap and they donít want to be uncomfortable even if itís only a coupe minutes.

    Warm it up first, it takes like 2 driving minutes.

    Mine takes forever. Not so much to get hot, but because there is no insulation the cold intrusion occurs nearly as fast as the heat, until you've driven for 20-30 minutes.

    Yeah. If I turn the heater off, cold gets back in quick for sure. But the heater itself heats up pretty fast...once I start driving. Idling? Takes forever.
