Why should I check my car, even if it’s parked?

If you haven’t been using your car and it sits peacefully on the street for an extended period of time, be careful before driving it again. Contrary to popular belief, a parked car can degrade:

  • You can see rust forming on the brakes when a car is parked for more than 3 days.
  • The car battery can gradually drain, especially if it is hot.
  • Remember to ventilate your car to prevent moisture from forming and mold from growing inside.
  • Don’t leave your car parked with the hand brake on; extended time with the hand brake on can cause the springs to grip and block the wheel
  • Do not leave your fuel tank empty, fill it at least halfway to prevent dust and dirt from forming.

We advise you to take a drive from time to time to prevent wear and tear from inactivity. If you notice anything abnormal on first use, don't hesitate to contact your Point S mechanic to verify that your car is still safe.
