Personally, I do my own servicing so I keep a spreadsheet record of the details for all maintenance activity including date, odometer reading, details of servicing performed and $ spent. Also prepared details of planned servicing for each servicing interval for the next 2-3 years.

My main focus is change of engine oil and filters every 5,000 km and change of transmission oil and filter every 75-50,000 km or 3 years.

I check and replace the fluids in the reservoirs for the brake, power steering and coolant on a regular basis, at least annually.

When servicing, check the rubber boots on the drive shafts and steering arms for any damage. I also clean the throttle body and idle control valve whenever the air filter is checked/cleaned/replaced.

Overall, a great believer in preventative maintenance and having a reliable vehicle.
