Thumbs down Have completely lost confidence in this car

I will no longer let my wife drive this car when the temperature gets below 20. This car is garaged overnight where the temp hovers around 40 degrees. However, she goes to work and the car sits out all day in the freezing cold. I can only assume this is when the hoses are freezing up.

When it is cold she will have to drive the more reliable 1998 Ford Taurus station wagon my grandfather gave me.
