If COVID19 has affected your travel habits, like working from home, utilizing shopping delivery services, or avoiding usual visits or vacations, it’s possible your car may need some attention to keep it in sound mechanical condition. Some of the more common issues encountered with extended sitting are dead batteries, rusty brakes, even mice. Yes, mice! Here at Octane Garage we have seen several cases over the last year. They make their nests in hidden, inaccessible places and apparently they enjoy chewing on wires. So good advice is to keep up driving your car regularly, even short trips on the weekends can avoid some of the problems that can occur from sitting idle for too long. If you have a case of “CARVID”, need some regular maintenance or just a checkup call Octane Garage for an appointment at (732)509-9911. Stay safe!
CARVID - (kar-vid) / noun, slang:
A condition experienced by vehicles which have been sitting idle for extended periods of time due to COVID19. Vehicle problems developing from lack of regular use due to the pandemic’s changes to travel and commuting habits.

Octane Garage invites you to let us know how we’re doing, what do you like about us, what would you like us to change? We’re listening, but more importantly so is the public. Every review on any platform is valuable to us and we thank you in advance if you’ll take the time to write a few kind words, simply a “Like” on our Facebook page can help someone in making their choice. The age of electronics has changed the way small businesses get their names out there to the public. Small Repair shops rely heavily on recommendations and reviews when it comes to growing their business. Having a recommendation is a tremendous help in finding a reputable Auto Repair Shop, without one the feedback provided by local strangers can be very helpful. When the public shares their personal experiences in the form of reviews on various social media sites it can provide some insightful information, both positive and negative. When trust is important a little homework in advance, like reading customer reviews, can help find what you’re looking for. Stay safe, and if you need an appointment call Octane Garage at (732)509-9911.
