Turning off car prior to car reaching proper operational temp- long run issues?


I have a question about turning off the car before the car reaches proper temperature. As I live about 1km from the gotrain and walking is not an option (don't ask ). Sometimes I have time to circle the area and run laps before I turn off the car, but not often.

I heard this is one of the worst things we can do to engines as the moisture (or carbon build up?) within the engine created don't have a chance to burn off and thus creates rust or issues within the engine.

Is this a legitiment concern with new engines, this being a thing of the past?
