Thanks Leon, that's good to know, cause in about 10,000 miles I'll have to do a 30,000 miles service. Anyone know how hard this one is to do yourself, or is it just best to suck it up and go to the dealer?

Most of them are DIY'ers.
I would think you could handle them all, at least with a little help.

I believe the 120K service is the same as 60K....you wouldn't do the 90K @ 120 since that includes the timing belt (which should have been done only 30K miles ago).

I just hit 120K, changed the oil and trans fluid yesterday, still need to do some more inspections and change the plugs and fuel filter.

Regards,

60,000 or 90,000 miles?

My owner's manual says to change the timing belt rvery 60,000 miles. Where does the 90,000 mile interval come from?

Thanks,

Jack

every manual is different some 60,000 some 90,000 at lest you dont have the one that says 40,000 that would suck. It seems they built the legends all allittle different, some you have to change the pads very 2,225mi!!! , im in search for a legend that requires no oil change, but im not losing sleep over this search.
