You cannot buy a new car or a truck all the time, isn’t it? But how about buying an old one and turning it into a new car or a new truck? Sounds good?
So, here we are to give you a couple of tips as to how you can keep your car or truck, as good as new one even if you end up buying a second hand car from sales or a used garbage truck sale in Florida.

It is essential to change items like engine oil, oil filter, and air filter while making sure parts like brake pads, brake oil, air-con filter and suspension are in good condition. You should also have a look at the previous service history to have a better understanding.
Makeover the exteriors
Foam wash, car polish and what not. Get the exterior of your car pampered without fail. You must fix the minor scratched too. Just in case there are bigger dents then visit a repair shop and get it sorted. Also make it a point to restore the lamp and headlights.
Makeover the interior
When you are done with exterior then shift your focus to the interiors. Floor mats should be replaced and if the seat covers have marks, get new ones installed. You may also want to get a new steering wheel and gear lever cover in leather finish. Also, don’t forget a nice perfume.

Watch out the tyres
Tyres are the point of contact between your vehicle and the road. Replace them without fail. They do cost a lot (upwards of Rs 10k per piece for SUVs!) but can drastically improve the ride quality, decrease road noise and increase traction for added safety.
These were a few of the points that you can consider while revamping a used car. Keeping a keen eye on safety measures is important whether your car is new or old.
Please take that if the expense is too much, you can break it down and do one job at a time, or in a month. In the long run, these changes will certainly bring a smile on your face every time you get behind the wheel.
