A key factor in having any vehicle perform at its optimum peak can be summed up in two words, PROPER MAINTENANCE. This means changing oils, filters and other components at regular intervals that are suggested by the vehicle manufacturer. I have had vehicles that I have properly maintained, and have gotten more than 200,000 miles out of them before I sold them. One that I have sold is still in service and reaching the 400,000 milestone without major repair.
