Performance Chevrolet in Elkins, WV Offers Tips on Keeping Your Chevy in Good Shape

These days, people have more reasons to stay home and drive less. With many businesses adopting a work-from-home model, this may continue for some time. If you're one of the people who isn't driving as much as before, you may wonder how you can keep your Chevy in good shape. At Performance Chevrolet, we want to help you keep your Chevrolet in top shape, so we'll give you some important tips below. Find out more here, and then come see why drivers from Beverly, Coalton, and beyond choose Performance Chevrolet for their Chevy needs.

Do I Need To Bring My Chevy In for Service as Often?

In short: yes, you should probably bring your Chevy in for service about as often as before. There are indeed some services that won't be necessary as often, including brake pad replacement. However, other services use time in addition to mileage. Take oil changes, for example. At Performance Chevrolet, we recommend having synthetic oil changes performed every 5,000 to 7,500 miles. But even if you don't travel this far in a year, Chevy still recommends getting your oil changed at least once a year.

How Often Should I Drive My Chevy?

It's a good idea to take your Chevy for a drive at least once a week -- and make sure your drive is at least 15 minutes. This way, the alternator will have time to recharge the battery, which naturally drains as your Chevrolet sits. Not only will a weekly drive recharge the battery, but it will also keep your vehicle lubricated and keep your tires in good shape. It can even prevent the buildup of rust on the brake rotors.

How Can I Take Care of My Chevrolet While It's Parked?

In between those weekly drives, you should keep your Chevy parked with a full gas tank. This can help prevent the buildup of condensation, which isn't good for your vehicle. Before you drive, be sure to check the tire pressure since tires can lose air over time. And if you're parking outside, it's a good idea to invest in a car cover and use it to cover your Chevrolet.
