I’m looking for advice on what to do about my car (2020 Honda Accord), which I haven’t been able to drive due to an injury. It’s been sitting in my carport for about a month now, and I probably won’t be able to drive it myself for at least another month.
It’s my understanding that leaving a car like this can cause some damage, including draining the battery and potentially causing flat spots on the tires. I’m really concerned about what damage has already been done, and what more might be done by leaving it sit even longer. I bought it new about a year ago (December 2019) and haven’t been able to drive it much in that time (less than 3000 miles on it).
What would you recommend I do at this point? Would it be best to try to turn it on and drive it briefly?
What if I just leave it sitting for another month?
I might be able to enlist a friend to help me out with this in the next week, at least to get it going and possibly drive it once a week. I can also call AAA if I need to get the battery charged and tires inflated, but I probably won’t be able to get any further maintenance done until I’m able to drive it myself (hopefully mid- to late November).
