Bottle jacks are suitable for lifting vehicles, however, they should not be used as supports for a vehicle, as the seals in a bottle jack could fail suddenly, leak and cause accidents.

 

Use a bottle jack to lift the vehicle only, and always place axle stands appropriately under the vehicle to supprt its weight.
