Sandy Lane Auto service update during COVID-19. See details.
With a majority of vehicle owners living in areas of the country that have stay-at-home orders, many vehicles may be sitting idle for days or weeks at a time. We at Sandy Lane Auto recommends starting your car at least once a week and keeping up with routine auto care to help prevent potential maintenance issues.
Just as it is recommended that people stay active during this time of social distancing, your car should get some activity as well. If your vehicle sits idle for too long, the battery could die, the tires can develop flat spots and the engine oil may start to deteriorate. Just a short solo drive once a week and a little car care will keep your car running efficiently and safely.
When starting your car weekly, let it run for at least five minutes. If the vehicle is started in a garage, make sure the garage door is open and there is plenty of ventilation. In addition, we suggest monitoring the following areas of your vehicle if it sits idle for long periods of time.
For more helpful information about maintaining your vehicle for safety, dependability and value, feel free to call or email the team at Sandy Lane Automotive.
