How Is Your Car Similar To The Human Body?

Are you someone with an older car that you love? If you are, then you’ll want to read this. An older car of say, older than 10 years is like a senior citizen in the automotive world. When your car is new and fresh, it rarely has automotive issues. But as you age, your body, like your car, requires more care and certainly more preventive maintenance.

Preventive Maintenance

While we always believe in preventive maintenance, it’s even more critical as a car ages. Like your body, things in a car tend to break down as they get older. For example, hoses may become more inflexible and break. Gaskets get worn down and may leak. An older car is more likely to creak, and the brakes may get worn out. The suspension may be “squishy,” too. And the electronics often go haywire in older cars as well.

What to Do?

As we age, we need to go to the doctor more often for checkups. We can’t skip three or four years of doctor’s visits just because they’re inconvenient. When we’re younger, our teeth look shiny and white, since they haven’t had to do much work yet. But as we age, we may need to have a better diet with more greens and we might even have to stop drinking. For your vehicle to perform its best, taking it to your mechanic more often for services becomes more critical, just like a senior going in for regular bloodwork and cancer screenings. Having the oil checked and changed regularly, and doing all the routine maintenance, such as tire rotations, are important. All of the checkup and services are investments in your vehicle’s health.

We Don’t Know What Will Happen

Just like with a person, we don’t know what the future holds for us and our vehicle. But if you bring in your vehicle for all its maintenance checks, you’ll be more likely to weather any bigger problems when they do come along. Also, your auto repair technicians will have a better idea of the issues your car has if it’s in the shop regularly. Just as it’s critical to have a good doctor as one ages, having a good relationship with your mechanic will let your car age more gracefully.
