With the multitude of changes in recent years, many more people are driving less. As such, their cars tend to be inactive for longer periods of time. When your car sits, many things can happen to it, both inside a garage and outside. We want your car to stay in the best condition it can, and here at South Bay Mazda, we can help make that happen, whether through our service tips or our high-quality service.
One of the problems of tires sitting in place for a long time is that they can develop flat spots due to tires’ natural elasticity. Also, over time, your tire pressure can decrease due to the natural nanopores in the tire rubber. We recommend taking your car out at least a few times per month, preferably for more than 20 minutes, which is about how long your alternator will take to recharge your car’s battery. When you take your car out, you even out the pressures on your tires and let them form back into the round tire that you need. Don’t forget to check the tire pressure as well!
The sad truth of all fluids is that they age and break down, especially when the weather changes constantly shift their temperatures. This degradation reduces those fluids’ efficacy, which is why you should change your oil about once a year, even if you aren’t using your car. Also, when your car is stopped, it doesn’t run any fluid through its internal parts, so protections against things like corrosion can be absent while your car sits. Changing your oil, checking your fluids, and running your car can solve these problems before they become big problems.
At South Bay Mazda, our goal is to provide your car with the best service and provide you with the very best care while your car is in the shop. Our customer waiting lounge has complimentary Wi-Fi to keep you connected, as well as our Mazda mcafé coffee bar to treat you. We also provide snacks and soft drinks, so you’ll be able to relax and treat yourself while we treat your car.
If you have any concerns about your car, especially if it’s being used far less than it used to be, we can help. Our oil change, fluid checks and changes, and part replacements will keep your car in the best shape it can be.
