Long Trip/Highway Scheduled Maintenance
The services shown in this schedule up to 100,000 miles
(166 000 km) should be performed after 100,000 miles
(166 000 km) at the same intervals. The services shown
at 150,000 miles (240 000 km) should be performed at
the same interval after 150,000 miles (240 000 km).
See “Owner Checks and Services” and “Periodic
Maintenance Inspections” following.
The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency or the
California Air Resources Board has determined that the
failure to perform this maintenance item will not nullify
the emission warranty or limit recall liability prior to the
completion of the vehicle’s useful life. We, however,
urge that all recommended maintenance services be
performed at the indicated intervals and the maintenance
be recorded.
# Lubricate the transaxle shift linkage, parking brake
cable guides and the underbody contact points
and linkage.
* If your vehicle has an Engine Oil Life Monitor
(Index), the monitor will show you when to change
the engine oil and filter
-- usually between 3,000 miles
(5 000 km) and 7,500 miles (12 500 km) since your last
oil change. Under severe conditions, the indicator may
come on before 3,000 miles (5 000 km). Never drive
your vehicle more than 7,500 miles (12 500 km) or
12 months without an oil and filter change.
The system won’t detect dust in the oil. So if you drive
in a dusty area, be sure to change your oil and filter
every 3,000 miles (5 000 km) or sooner if the CHANGE
OIL message appears. Remember to reset the Engine Oil
Life Monitor (Index) whenever the oil is changed. For
more information, see “Engine Oil Life Monitor” in
the Index.
+ A good time to check your brakes is during tire
rotation. See “Brake System Inspection” under “Periodic
Maintenance Inspections” in Part C of this schedule.
