Do you take your car to the dealer to be serviced?

That shouldn't have needed anything but oil changes and tires by that mileage. Maybe front brake pads depending on how you drive. 3+ maintenance sessions a year is wasting money. 

I've put over 200,000 miles on a used car that already had 120,000 when I bought it without that much maintenance. 

We have very bad weather here. I like to get it serviced before and after the winter. Usually I only need the $33 fluid and overall review. Most of my repairs, and there haven't been many, are due to the time that the piece of machinery has been used, rather than the amount of use. The service guys say that some people drive their cars hard and need things replaced, etc. all the time. My stuff doesn't get abused, but you do need to replace a belt or something every now and then.   It works for me.
