I know I do. I change the oil of both my truck and my wife's car every 3000 miles, rotate the tires every other change oil, check the brake pads, drive belts, air filter, etc everytime I get down and dirty. Also I change my engine coolant once a year preferably before summer. A lot of work, but a lot of savings in the long run....

Definitely. Also do the tyranny fluid. Power steering, brakes but I still have factory ones from 13 years ago they still have good amount of tread! I got my tires from americantire so they rotate them free.
