How Can I Make My Older Car Feel Like New?

How Can I Make My Older Car Feel Like New?

There are 14 million cars on the road today that are 25 years or older. While this may sound surprising, in reality, many drivers just love their rides (rust and all).


Some drivers may be able to easily trade in their vehicles for new shiny models, but others hold onto their cars like an old friend. Whether you're sentimental about your Subaru or you're just not ready to put in the blood, sweat, and tears that go into buying a new car, here's how you can make your old vehicle feel like new again.


Use car mods for bells and whistles


You don't need to buy a whole new vehicle to get your hands on new, cool toys. All you need is a few smart car mods and someone handy with installation.


Consider something fun like a new car radio or racing seats. Or go the functional route with an aftermarket exhaust system. An aftermarket exhaust system opens an older car's airways while giving it a new voice.


While you're at it, consider giving your car an aftermarket intake system and air filter. These new additions will help to kick up your car's output.


Clean everything (yes, everything)


Many drivers assume that cleaning the car means emptying out the trunk and vacuuming the floors. But, to make your car feel like new, you're going to have to do a deeper clean.


Clear out the trunk and vacuum the floors, sure, but also shampoo the carpets and the upholstery. Clean your tires like your life depends on it. Suck out the crumbs and grime from your seats.


Once you're done cleaning the inside of your car, clean the inside of your car. Get an oil change and clean any and all grime from the engine bay.


When you're done with that, clean under the car, too. Trust us. You'll be able to tell the difference.


On the hunt for Subaru aftermarket parts?


Over 79 million cars were sold in 2017, but that doesn't mean that many of the cars on the road today are brand new. In fact, there are 8 million more 25-year-old vehicles on the road today than there were on the road in 2002.


Subaru upgrades like Subaru aftermarket parts and Subaru replacement parts can have your vehicle looking like new again in no time. To learn more about Subaru aftermarket parts or other upgrades, contact Import Image Racing today.
