Tips for taking care of your car during the coronavirus lockdown
Even though things are starting to get back to normal, the coronavirus is leaving a lasting impact on all of us. One of the ways it has impacted us is how we travel. Many of us spent less time on the road, and may have found ourselves going weeks at a time without driving. Spending less time on the road means you should actually be more attentive to your vehicle and its needs. Take a look at some tips below on how to take care of your car during the coronavirus!
Driving is what charges your car battery, so if you go long periods of time without driving, the battery could be dead the next time you get in your car and need to go somewhere. Be sure to check your vehicle at least once a week to see that it’s charged, and you can do so by taking it for a short drive or by using a battery charger.
Check fluid levels
Fluid levels should always be checked, but it’s easy to neglect them if you haven’t been driving much. If your car is sitting for long periods of time, you may be missing a leak or something else.
Check tire pressure
Tire pressure is another area most people forget to check up on until they notice the tires are nearly flat. If your vehicle is resting for long periods of time, you may find that it has flat spots and is slowly losing air. Check this regularly to avoid having a flat the next time you leave the house.
Wash your vehicle regularly
Your car can collect a lot of debris and acid over time when it sits outside, which will damage the paint and other components. Regular car washes will help a lot when it comes to protecting your vehicle’s exterior from the elements.
