My first car was a 1967 VW Squareback – a classic. I bought it used and it was more than 10 years old when I purchased it. It was a simple car with a basic engine that ran great (as long as I kept oil in it). Outside of the routine maintenance, I only fixed my car when it broke. If I was lucky, my car would warn me when something was about to happen. It might start performing sluggishly, idle rough or make strange noises to give me a warning that my engine needed work. Then, I’d take it to my mechanic. He would diagnose the problem and let me know what needed to be fixed; hopefully before any major repairs were needed.
