To help share knowledge of car care during this time, Nissan in Thailand has created five easy steps to protect your cars, and maintain their value and condition. As the leader in EVs in Thailand, there are also extra tips for EV cars, so owners please read on!
When you do, make sure that it gets up to full operating temperature before you shut it back down to make sure the engine is working properly. Or better yet, take your car out for a spin around the block or to the grocery store whenever necessary. While it is not recommended to go out as often during this social distancing period, getting out of the house just once in a while to get essential groceries and errands can do wonders for your mental and physical health during this self-quarantine and work from home period.
If possible, put a cover on your car’s exterior to prevent damaging the paint. You can purchase this online simply by typing in the keyword “car cover.” This is especially useful if you are parking your car outdoors, without any roof or shelter. Also, it’s a good idea to keep your tire pressure at between 30 and 35 PSI to make sure that the car can function at its best. These useful tips apply to all types of cars, including ICE vehicles, hybrids, and EVs.
If a vehicle requires more attention, remember that automotive dealerships and their service departments are still open per usual. Most Nissan service departments remain open and are available to assist with vehicle service and repairs, simply contact Nissan Call Center at Tel 0-2401-9600.
The shelter-in-place orders in effect throughout much of Thailand mean that many vehicles are seeing infrequent, if any, use. The longer a vehicle sits unused, the more likely it is to develop issues. By taking a few key steps, drivers can keep their cars running smoothly.
Last, but not least, please keep safe during this period and omit unnecessary social contact where possible. Always remember to keep your hands sanitized, and wear masks. Above all, don’t forget to take care of the people and things you love, as we all get through this difficult time together.
