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....

No, haven't changed my own oil for many years. Change coolant every year? Sounds like a waste of money.
