You only changed your brake pads one time in 180 000km ?

And you never changed your tie rod and ball joint ? I changed them 2 times already and I have 100 000 lol

I don't think I want to know. Yeap for sure don't want to know. I am sure a lot of this you just deciding to do together and its not a melt down.

CVT fluid change is expensive from what a dealer told me. 125,000km is the recommended point. Notice that just out of the power train warranty. LOL

Ooooh, timing belt ... who knows.

well no i need allot of these parts i spent under 1,200 talk about a steal. every time i hit a speed bump i bottom out. 180k on OE struts...time to change. my rear end is so ****ed up i have about -5 negative camber because all my joints are loose so replacing everything in the rear front swaybar links since the first ones went at 80,000km and i'm on 100,000km since i last replaced those. need front pads i will need to do the back pads at 220km so why not buy them now they were cheap enough. my foglights are all cracked and my headlights are all pitted so why not i needed a new drive belt and idler pullys so figured do the water pump too for 40$ cant say no. o2 sensor was 60 and it's a premium bosch sensor that was onsale from 110. cant complain!

You don't need to change the timing belt. Maybe you meant the serpentine belt then that's ok. The timing belt, no. Don't forget to use synthetic oil only such as Mobil 1. I am currently using G-oil but I will not give you report on my findings until after six more months. I change oil only twice a year but I clean the air filter every week. Engine runs great.

CVT oil change can be expensive but definitely worth doing. I did mine at 120K and I felt the difference between the old oil and the new oil, not to mention the wallet feeling lighter too. $135.00

Oh before I forget, you did not mention the inner tie rods. Those are the parts that really go bad first. Some people might think that its the links or shocks but its really the inner tie rods. If you lift the wheel off the ground and move the wheel left-right-left-right and feel any looseness, it's those inner tie rods. All cars suffer from this problem due to the small size of the inner tie rods. You can save the sway bar links or extend its life a lot by injecting grease into them.


Sorry you did mention your tie rods being replaced. Anyway this info is for those who are contemplating some repairs in the near future. tks
