Old timers are very sensitive when it comes to dealing with their vehicles. They don’t like taking their cars or trucks to the mechanics as much as possible. They’d rather get grease on their shirt and lay on the floor fixing their own engines. This is a remarkable attribute. It shows a high level of understanding of how cars work, of their parts, and of the right choice of tools for the specific task at hand. When talking about modern auto body tools, though, this can be quite a different story.
Cars that have been launched and sold more recently are without a doubt a “little” different in terms of their make and systems. The parts are more sophisticated, modern and digitalized. We have, to name a few, GPS trackers, improved safety features, auto cruise control and car sensors now. If someone who has been used to the older type of cars gets one of these new babies, there is no doubt that confusion will surface. These days, there are more buttons to push and commands to order than the manual labor to do yourself - and those who aren’t use to this setup may not fare too well. Even our diagnostic tools have gotten a makeover. When diagnosing a car’s problems, we use a lot of computers and scanners now.
In order to keep up with these changes, motorists - young and old - need to keep abreast with new trends and updates when it comes to car models, systems, maintenance and upkeep as well as the modern auto body tools that are used today.
