8 signs of an old car

If your car suffers any of these 8 symptoms, it is time to change it

No, it’s not like we have anything against used cars. What’s more, we are fans of redbone of classic cars. We are fans of vintage vehicles ourselves, as we have demonstrated multiple times. However, not everyone shares this way of thinking and it is for them, for whom we write this article.

If you are thinking of selling your car that is no longer so new, and buying a new one, here are some benefits that you will get if you decide to do it.

1.- A safer car

The relationship between the “old” of a car and the possibility of having an accident is very high, we can avoid this reality if we choose to buy a new vehicle.

A new car is safer as it is developed with the latest technological advances, which better protect the occupants. In addition, they incorporate the most modern security systems.

2.- Aid to the Environment

The emissions of old vehicles are higher than those of new ones, since these are increasingly more efficient in terms of consumption and emit fewer pollutants.

Today, a new vehicle emits 30% less CO2 into the atmosphere compared to a car that is more than 10 years old.

3.- You will save more

Cars with more than 12 years of life break down more often and their maintenance is more expensive, since it is necessary to change important parts for their proper functioning, such as brakes, dampers or the timing belt, among many other things.

The probability that a new car will break down is relatively low (except for some not very honorable exceptions, of course) and if we add to this that the current engines are more efficient and consume less fuel , this undoubtedly translates into savings for the pocket of the consumer .

4.- A more comfortable car

More comfortable seats, smart climates, driver assistance systems and much more, make life more comfortable and enjoyable for a new car owner.

5.- You will have a smarter car

Technology is advancing by leaps and bounds and the car has benefited the most, which is why manufacturers launch cars packed with modern technologies on the market .

For example, the owner of a new car can connect to the Internet, use hands-free to avoid accidents, check his email or access his smartphone through applications such as Apple’s CarPlay or Google’s Android Auto.

6.- You will have more comfortable trips

When a car has been in use for several years, some suspension components lose their qualities, which is why travel becomes heavier, since road imperfections are more noticeable, both in the seats and in the same steering wheel.

7.- Think about verification

If you live in a city in the Megalopolis or in an entity where the anti-pollution rules apply , you have a powerful reason to get rid of your car as soon as possible. The more time you spend, the more likely you are to stop circulating one day a week and one or two Saturdays a month.

8.- Yes, you will save even more money

A car with several years on it, translates into higher maintenance costs and with this we do not refer only to the mechanical issue, but to other equally important details, such as its exterior and interior appearance. Over the years, it will be more difficult to restore the painting to its former splendor, the clarity of headlights and the like.
