Going on an extended trip for a couple weeks or longer and not taking your vehicle? If so, here are some tips that will keep your vehicle in great shape while you are gone.
When you are ready to start driving again, remove the smart battery charger and check under the hood for any evidence of rodents. Check your tire pressures and look under the vehicle for any leak evidence. Then check the fluid levels. Next, test the brakes in your driveway and take a short test-drive around your neighborhood to make sure everything is working correctly. If something is amiss, get it evaluated and repaired as soon as possible.
