Storing Your Vehicle

If you only drive your car during a particular season, for example, you’ll want to store it properly. Before doing so, be sure the gas tank is filled up, the tire pressure is checked, and the car is covered with a cloth if left outside.

Weekly or Monthly Checks

Depending on how little you drive your car, you’ll want to do weekly or monthly checks. This includes starting up your car and running the engine for a few minutes. If you live in a very cold climate, do this for longer. You can even take it out for a drive to pump life into the battery and to be sure all the fluids are working properly.

Get an Oil Change

Technically, oil only needs to be changed when it is dirty. Therefore, you’ll want to check your engine oil every month or two to make sure it is still clean. Otherwise, wait the three months in between oil changes before taking it in. Time also does a number on oil and your other fluids.

Take Your Vehicle in for Maintenance Every Six Months

A semi-annual inspection of your low-mileage vehicle is necessary for its longevity and to keep it running smoothly. Your Honda technician will inspect the oil, tires, fluids, and more. He will also schedule your next maintenance appointment at Honda of Champaign for six months out.
