Thread: Putting my car away

    Default Putting my car away

    Hello.

    Given the weather this time of year, my car can wait two or three weeks before it is driven.

    Should my car be left out of gear with the handbrake off, or the other way around? The garage is obviously on level ground!

    Thanks, Chris.

    DO NOT LEAVE IT IN GEAR,chock the wheels handbrake off,if you are in a slopy area use the handbrake not the gearbox,if the handbrake dont hold take it back to whoever serviced it.
