I have a 2008 cheve impala that I left sitting (covered) for about three months. It got a new battery just four months ago. If I call AAA and get it started, will it be ill advised to drive the car like normal, or must I go to a mechanic? That is, is there much of a risk that my car will not start again? Thanks to anyone who can help!
So, you can get the AAA to start it, you should also check the oil level and tire pressures. You could also put the battery on charge overnight and if all else is well it should start from its own battery.
After that you can drive it, you may find the tires have "flat spots" due to being in the same position for so long, but they will normally work themselves out after a few miles or so.
Then after that it should be normal - it should not affect the reliability any further.
