When your vehicle is ready to come out of storage, do the following:

Wash your vehicle to remove any dirt or grease film build-up on window surfaces.
Check windshield wipers for any deterioration.
Check under the hood for any foreign material that may have collected during storage (mice/squirrel nests).
Check the exhaust for any foreign material that may have collected during storage.
Check tire pressures and set tire inflation per the Tire Label.
Check brake pedal operation. Drive the vehicle 15 ft (4.5 meters) back and forth to remove rust build-up.
Check fluid levels (including coolant, oil and gas) to make sure there are no leaks, and fluids are at recommended levels.
If the battery was removed, clean the battery cable ends and inspect.

If you have any concerns or issues, contact your authorized dealer.
