Why does my car only get frosty on one side?


Why does frost only appear on one side of my car and not the other? It’s always only on one side.

Answer: When you drive home and it’s cold, you have the heating on and you create a warm ecosystem inside. The one thing that changes is the wind outside, so depending on the direction, one side will cool down quicker and the warm air in the car will condensate on one side of the car more than the other.
