Default How long should I go without driving my RS?

As much as I like driving my new RS, I live in the city and don't need a car to drive to work. Recently, I left my car for about a week without driving it. When I then started to drive it, it was a little "disoriented". The alarm went off 4 or 5 times when unlocking the car, and the car almost stalled when I started the ignition.

Am I hurting my car by leaving it that long? Or could there be something wrong with my new car?

Leaving your car for a week should not affect it at all. I would think that as long as you ran it once a month that you should not have any problems. Take it for a long ride so that the battery can charge and the engine and exhaust can get good and hot.

As for your car stalling and the alarm going off, I doubt that it has anything to do with the car sitting. Perhaps the battery is dying?

good luck

Hmm. Could I be having a battery problem already? I mean this car is only 3 1/2 months old.
