I have not had to do much on the car since day one, serp belt, gas filter, front brakes, 114k miles and passed emissions.
Disregard , I found my answer, first time working on a front wheel drive vehicle, and I guess the rear drum setup is quite different. Now to find time to actually do the brakes.

2006 ZX3 7 miles when car delivered to me
102,986 miles
21 Mobile 1 0w-20 oil changes
3 75w-90 Lubro Moly MTX fluid change
3 Fuel Filters
2 Brake/Clutch Fluid Flushes ( once every 2 years )
Still on first set of replacement tires (over 80,000 miles on them, still a 32nd away from the wear bar)
Two Sets of Front Rotors/Pads First set replaced at 20,000 with Hawk HPS, second set at 96,000 (napa super ultra premium dual compound pad)
KYB rear shocks replaced at 50k, probably should think about doing another set
Coolant Changed Nov. 2010 when I had posesion of vehicle for exactly 5 years to the day and about 98,000 miles when changed.

No leaks, no rattles, no vibrations. Best vehicle I've ever owned. Since I took ownership of the car with 7 miles on it on Nov. 5, 2005 it has never been inside to the dealership or any other shop, besides the one I work at.

Also Autolite Racing 103 copper plugs every 10-15k.
Modifying cars is retarded. Buy a bike instead.

2001 Focus ZX3 with over 115,000 miles on it. Dead compressor on the AC, and it needs new struts, but other than that it runs well enough.
