If you are a Reno, NV resident, you may not be driving your vehicle as often as you normally would. And while you may be enjoying not having to fill up as often or the miles on your Volvo going up, it is still important to keep your vehicle healthy. Especially if you find yourself barely driving at all.

How to Take Care of Your Car When You Aren’t Driving It

At our service center we take the health of your model seriously. We want to help you get the most out of your ride, even if you are not driving. Here are a few simple tips to keep your model healthy during these times:

  • Keep an Eye on Your Tires:
    While you aren’t driving your vehicle, your tire pressure may fluctuate. Be sure to keep an eye on your tires to keep them in good shape. You can conduct a visual inspection, or, better yet, utilize a tire pressure tool. Consult with your owner’s manual to determine what the proper tire pressure is.
  • Test Your Battery:
    The last thing you want is to step into your Volvo, press the button or turn the key and have nothing happen. If you allow your battery to die, you will no longer be able to utilize your vehicle. You can visit our dealership to have your battery properly tested.
  • Check Your Fluids:
    There are a number of fluids that your vehicle relies on. You will want to check things like oil and washer fluid to have peace of mind that your model will function as it should.

If you are someone who isn’t driving much right now, don’t forget about routine and preventive maintenance. If you have questions, you can contact our service team to learn more.
