Some tips below to help you maintain your Vehicle

To ensure your car operates efficiently when returning to more usual travel patterns, there are a few simple steps you can follow.

Maintain your Battery

To build up sufficient charge in the battery, it is recommended that you turn on your vehicle once every seven days. In the first instance, start your car for a 30-minute period, with the heat in the cabin set to 22 degrees. Repeat this process for 15 minutes, once every seven days in the weeks thereafter, to ensure the battery is maintained.

Check your tyres

To avoid flat spots developing and ensure your tyres remain sufficiently inflated, check the tyre pressure against those listed in your vehicle manual. In addition, we advise adjusting the parking position of your Land Rover by a ¼ of a wheel turn once every 14 days, to change the point of pressure. Repeat as required.

Maintain your Brakes

After extended periods of no use, we’d recommend gently applying the brakes when first driving your vehicle again, at a low speed. This will help to remove any surface corrosion on the brake discs.
