I need to travel to the east coast and work from there for a duration of 5 months. I can leave my car in covered parking here and ask a friend to start the car for a few minutes every week.
What possible issues could I face with the car maintenance when I return? Or what issues can arise since the car will be non-operable for a long period?
The car is a Honda Civic 2008 in good condition.
Also, I have the option of shipping the car to east coast - but it would cost me anywhere from 850 - 1000 dollars.
