    cold

    How cold does it have to be before the plastic gets brittle?
    Whatever you are, be a good one.

    It usually has to be around -10 to -20 degrees Celsius before it becomes brittle. Parts will break based on how hard you drive your truck

    A well-known plastic parts manufacturer considers 50*F (10*C) to be outside normal operating conditions. I have experienced the brittleness of plastics at that temperature.
