Your car won't be damaged but the battery life will be affected.

Car batteries are not inverter batteries and inverter batteries are not car batteries.

Starting a car draws high current in a short period from the battery so the car battery is designed for high current draw in a short time. Inverter batteries are designed to discharge slowly for a long period. So a car battery has thin plates and increased surface area of the plates for high current while inverter batteries have thick plates for deeper discharge.

Although, a car battery used as inverter battery will suffer damage more than an inverter battery used in a car.
