Is the site back?  Or am I wasting my time and should just delete this site from my favorites and just give up?

Thoughts on storing car outside

05 July 2016 - 07:01 PM

Hey everyone


As most of you know.  The XRS will be going into storage for at least the winter, if not longer.


Just curious to see what everyone's thoughts are on storing it outside for the winter months?


My plan is to get this car cover



and some wheel chocks so I don't have to leave it in gear and the hand brake up.


Any thoughts?  Pros vs cons?


I have a double driveway, but it's pretty steep.  Hence the reason for the wheel chocks.  I live in Southern Canada, so we get plenty of snow.  The indoor storage prices around here are a bit expensive and I don't want to leave the car in my single garage in case I need the garage for other projects.  Just wondering if anyone has had any experience with storing a vehicle long term outside in the elements.  Obviously under the car cover.

It's time

So the time has come.  The Corolla will be officially be off the road by the end of July this year.


I've had this car since new in 07/2004.  Still love the car.  But since purchasing our home in 2012, we've noticed that the corolla is no longer as practical as we had hoped.  We honestly need something with more storage space, cheap to own, and still under warranty.


We settled on a 2016 Kia Soul EX+  We should be picking the vehicle up this Thursday.  I WILL NOT be selling the XRS.  But it will be going into storage for the next couple of years.  


I will still poke my head in here from time to time, and maybe still collect parts for my baby.  But I won't be driving her again for at least a year.


This forum has been great(along with 9GC).  Great group of people, great site with plenty of very helpful information, and a wonderful staff who run this  amazing forum. 


Thanks for the amazing 12years, and more to come hopefully.
