View Full Version : first drive in 6 months

I left in June for a semester in Australia, and just got home wednesday. My car sat covered in my parents back yard untouched for the last 6 months. I'm glad to say that it started right up after a second or two, and I went for a short drive. The hand brake was left off when I parked the car, but the rear brakes are seized. That awful brake smell followed me the whole way home. I'm not too concerned, because I've done all the brakes before so I'll check it out tomorrow. Is there anything else I should watch out for after letting my car sit for so long?
