But Nissan has an app to solve that.

A new study by Nissan has revealed that almost two thirds of UK drivers (65.1 percent) forget where they park their car.

The survey of 2,000 motorists revealed that 33.75 percent, or one-in-three, said that they forget where they leave their car at least once a month, while a further five percent even admitted to losing their car on a weekly basis.

The survey's comical results come to light ahead of the so-called 'Super Saturday' – the busiest shopping day before Christmas – where thousands of motorists could be stranded in the cold for up to half an hour looking for their car.

On average it takes 10 minutes to locate a lost car, but five percent of those surveyed admitted to looking for more than half an hour.

The survey also revealed that although women are more likely to lose their cars (72 percent to 58 percent of males), they take less time to find their lost car – 8.8 minutes on average vs. 11.9 minutes for men.
