Through recent events across the world and throughout 2020, it’s highly likely that you haven’t been using your car as much as you used to. This, therefore, means that you may have had extended periods of time where your vehicle was not in use and this can pose a potential problem for older cars. Older batteries can have issues if they are left for extended periods of time without use so it’s important to try and regularly use or at least run your car so you don’t run into any unexpected nasty surprises.
It’s important to remember that you may not be as used to driving as you were before. The winter can also be particularly difficult for new or newer drivers as they may face hazards that they have not experienced before. Snow and black ice can be highly dangerous and you may not be as familiar with the various vehicle maintenance checks that need to be carried out.
