    I always replace the sump plug on a new car I get, just out of habit.

    Check & replace any fluids you're not sure of, such as coolant, brake, PS & gearbox.

    To be fair, these cars are like any other... look after them and they'll look after you.
    I still have a new magnetic sump plug to fit on my next oil change.

    The state of some easily serviceable things i have found since taking ownership is shocking

    I think the poor fella didn't know a piston kit from his sisters t!t

    People don't know how to maintain a car.

    And all this modern day craze of lease and pcp where everything is done for you is just encouraging people to be clueless when it comes to servicing .......

    My car has done less than 500 miles in a year so I've not bothered changing it just yet.

    I’ve used this https://rover.ebay.com/rover/0/0/0?m...2F232567480237 for the last 5 years with no issues. Not sure what’s used by the garage I take my car for it’s main service but this is what I have used in between each of the garage services
