Oil and oil filter should be changed along with an inspection on your air filter. If your air filter is dirty or covered in debris, we recommend switching your air filter as well.
Brake fluid, coolant and windshield wiper fluid should also be inspected every 3,000 to 7,000 Miles. With regular visual inspections you should become very familiar with the current status of your vehicle and at this time should be comfortable enough to spot out any irregularities such as low transmission fluid.
