My car hasn’t moved off the drive in the last 3 months. Partly because during the locdown I’ve had nowhere to go, and more recently because bouts of vertigo make it unsafe for me to drive. The upshot of this is a vehicle with a lot of cobwebs hanging off the mirrors, decorated with more bird poo than you’d think possible, and a totally flat battery. Still, it wasn’t all downside. For being off the road for 25% of the year my insurer gave me back 3% of my annual premium.
My question is – should I reckon on doing anything more than just getting the car jump-started? I wonder if the brakes may have bound on, if oil has “settled” (if that’s even a thing), or if tyres will have the mechanical equivalent of bed sores. I know there are a few pertolheads here – any advice?
