Tips to make your car feel at home

Your vehicle needs your attention especially when it is kept at rest for long periods of time. Here are some tips to protect your car and keep it healthy.

Safe Parking

  • Park the car on an even, solid and dry surface
  • Disengage parking brakes, and keep gears in engaged mode(or "P" for auto-transmission cars)

Protect Battery

  • Start the car once a week and keep it in idle for 15 to 20 minutes.

Tire Health

  • Increase tire pressure(only if you have a compressor) during parking period, to avoid cracks on tire sidewalls.
  • Move the car back and forth (in your parking area) to prevent damage.

Air Circulation
