I often commute to my work using bicycle and public transport, and groceries and family visits are also done via bicycle and public transport. As a result, my car - Hyundai Matrix petrol car - is not used regularly. Sometimes the car is not used for up to two months.
Still I want to have a car, for holidays and the times public transport is not an option. A car can deteriorate if it is not frequently used.
This time when I used the car, I actually noticed I had to use extra throttle (once) to get the car moving, as if something was stuck.
How can I keep my car in the best condition, in both maintenance and usage terms? Do I frequently need to check the oil levels, and drive it once a few weeks?
