Parked Cars Could Mean Big Problems

In between services? Not driving as much? Mostly we hear about how we need to keep our vehicles maintained every 5,000 miles and how to keep up with our scheduled maintenance. What we don’t hear about is what to do when we’re not driving our cars.

Believe it or not, it’s actually worse for your vehicle to be left idle and unattended than it is to drive it every day. Over time, fluids break down causing excessive internal wear, tires can get flat spots, seals and gaskets can become dry and brittle and start to leak. It’s also very common in Orange County for rodents to build nests and chew on the wires and hoses of your vehicle while it’s being stored.

New car sales are down as much as 35% nationwide through the second quarter of 2020 indicating that consumers are holding onto their cars instead of buying new ones. Here’s how we can help you get the most value out of your current vehicle.
