The following tips to maintain an older car are a continuation of our blog on keeping your vehicle in good running condition:

Maintain your wheel bearings.
Wheel bearings ensure the smooth running of the tires. At your next car checkup, make sure to ask for a wheel inspection to see if your bearings are in good working condition. This usually only involves adding some grease to the bearings to get them moving smoothly again.

Change your brake fluid.
Changing your brake fluid helps to keep your brakes free of rust and corrosion.

Keep your exterior clean.
The common recommendation is to wax and wash your car four times per year at a minimum.

Keep the interior out of heavy sunlight.
In warm clients, the vehicle’s interior can fade from continual exposure to the sun. Try to park in the shade as often as possible, especially if you live in a warm climate. Also, use a sun shade to keep your interior fresh and looking new.

Wipe off debris.
In cold climates, salt sticks to the bottom of a vehicle. Make sure you eliminate all of the salt and any other debris before you wash your vehicle; otherwise you may get paint damage.
