Footnotes:
1. Oil change – Castrol RS at 10W60 or any of the many other motor oils that exceed the
minimum specification of oil required for the location.
2. Replacing the oxygen sensor at 140,000km is not applicable in the UK and would only be
needed when units are checked as faulty.
3. Catalytic converters do not have to be changed in the UK until they are no longer able to
meet the UK exhaust emissions requirements, one of the checks in the annual MOT test.
4. Routine coolant change is important – normally after the first 3 years or 60,000 km (36,000
miles) and then every 2 years thereafter or every 40,000 km (24,000 miles).
