I just have to disagree with one point.

The flushing of the transmission fluid. I have heard that unlike the other items on a car, that you do not want to flush the trans, unless there is a problem. I have been told if it isn't broke don't fix it. Evidently this procedure could cause more issues then it is worth.

I'm not a mechanic - just my 2cents

I was with you through "use branded fuel," and was surprised to then find that that recommendation wasn't anywhere to be found in the article you linked to.

Stephen --

Looks like they replaced it with "keep the front end aligned" (which I like better BTW -- I think I'll change it) since I originally read it (a few days ago).

What? Changes in online articles that aren't detailed? I am shocked, shocked.

As a side note, that's why I like what you did in striking through the old information rather than silently replacing it.

My strategy has been to buy a used car that appears to be well maintained, drive it for about a year, then sell before I have any problems with it. I enjoy getting a different vehicle each year. Maintenance just doesn't feel like maintenance anymore, to me it is like putting the car on life support just long enough for me to put a good 20-30k miles on it and get it sold to someone else.
