    I’m near the end of the factory scheduled maintenance plan.

    Just did a gearbox oil change and hydraulic steering fluid change. Gotta say that both the shifting and steering seemed improved.

    Aside from the usual oil and filters service, I’ve had the spark plugs replaced twice, and the serpentine belt changed too.

    Other fluids such as coolant and brake were changed at least twice.

    Gotta say that this is a great benefit to helping keep the car in tippy-top shape.

    Great idea with staying on top of it. I like to do the same. Why did you replace plugs twice? Unless you’ve got a ton of miles on it.

    Was the gearbox oil and steering fluid change complementary and part of the maintenance plan? I think my dealer wanted to charge me $700 for the DCT fluid change, didn't think to ask about the hydraulic steering fluid

    It’s part of the service schedule.

    Check out your booklets. If you hit the mileage then it is free

    I think MalibuGuy puts more miles on his car than most, so he got a lot more out of the maintenance plan.
