If you're not inclined towards doing the wrenching yourself, make sure your car has been recently tuned up by a trusted mechanic. Your Owner's Manual should tell you at what number of miles what checks should occur. Common tasks include:

  • Check the fuel filter
  • Check the spark plugs
  • Check the fluids and refresh/replace
  • Replace the air filter
