We’ve said this before, but since a shock may wear gradually over several months (or even years), it’s easy to not even notice it’s happening. So every once in a while, it’s a good exercise to step back a bit and pay attention to any peculiar shakes and bounces while you’re driving. Better still, you should take some time to roll around underneath your car, truck, or SUV to make sure everything looks OK with your suspension—any suspicious looking wear or odd residue should be noted and addressed.

The smell of the leather seats, the sound of the throttle, and even light from outside—all affect your state of mind. That’s what makes a good car great.
