Many people who have old cars has no idea what to do with them when it comes to maintenance work.

Old car need much more attention than a new one and naturally one reason for people not to take care of their old cars is that it has no warranty left.

Warranty or not there are certain things that definitely should be looked up on a regular basis. Brakes are one thing. Brakes can turn out to be quite unpredictable with old cars. If you are not an experienced driver it takes quite a lot to feel that brakes are wearing out. You should have both brake fluids and the brake pieces checked at least twice a year. Good place to have them checked is when you change your tyres. Just drive to your nearest Vianor, ask them to change tyres and inspect brakes, it does not get any easier.

Other fact that you have to keep checking is all lights on the car. If you pop both your rear lights and you’re driving in the dark, it suddenly is much more dangerous than what it would be with functioning lights. Never underestimate the importance of lights. You may see without them but you turn out to be hard to spot in the highways if you don’t have proper lights.

Third fact is that old cars usually have old tyres. People tend to drive their cars like it is the last day for that car. This means usually also that they are driving with badly kept and much driven tyres. Tyre is the one thing you should be not messing with because whether it’s a new car or an old car, safe tyre (in Finnish: turvallinen rengas ) is the one thing that keeps you on the road.

When taking care of your tyres, you should also be thinking about buying new ones just as if you would have a new car. And if you are only looking at the price when you buy new set of tyres you should also think about the safety. Old car without any fancy systems like traction control becomes much more safer if you buy proper tyres.
