Brakes: Everything from the brake pads to brake rotors, right on down to and including the brake fluid should be monitored. There is no set time interval or mileage limits as to when a brake pad might need replacing. It is largely affected by your individual driving style. In other words, how hard you brake and how frequently. Replacement can be anywhere from 20,000 to 40,000 miles. Brake fluid should always be at the appropriate level.

Inspect engine belts regularly: Worn belts will affect your engine's performance. An inspection of your timing belt should be done every 10,000 miles. However, if nothing is wrong with it, it doesn't have to be changed. Minor spider cracks on the surface of the belt are okay, but if a visual scan reveals severe cracks or broken teeth, then it's time for a new belt. Failure to do so can result in hefty damages. These belts should also be changed at the manufacturer's recommended mileage.

Windshield wipers: These should be replaced at least twice a year. They're cheap and easy to do yourself. In fact, most auto parts stores will replace them for you as a free service at time of purchase.

Oil/Oil Filter Change: This is the most frequent part of your automotive maintenance. Always consult with your owner's manual, but short of that a good rule of thumb is to have the oil and oil filter changed regularly, every 3,000 to 4,000 miles. If using synthetic oil, then you may extend that to 5,000 miles or 6 months. Again, consult your owner's manual. Don't forget that early diagnosis and repair of your engine are your best bet. This leads to minimal operating costs and a long safe, useful service for your vehicle. Left unattended, even the smallest of malfunctions can and usually does, lead to serious major repairs.

Tire Rotation: Your front and back tires will experience different rates of wear on different parts of their treads. With proper tire rotation at every 5,000-8,000 miles, this wear should be uniformly dispersed across their tread surface. At this time also check for proper tire pressure.

Keep your engine tuned: A fouled spark plug or plugged/restricted fuel injector can adversely affect gas mileage by as much as 30 percent. Your owner's manual should specify when the spark plugs will need to be changed. Depending on the type of spark plug used, this could be anywhere from 30,000 to 60,000 miles.
