Ok guys, my car is just around the corner of hitting 100k miles.
This is only my second car Ive ever had. Ive never done any maintenance work to it besides cleaning the throttle body and cleaning the air filter on my intake.
The only thing Ive had changed was the cat converter because it was still under warranty, and that was at about 70k miles or so.
I know you are suppose to do some maintenance work when you hit the 100k mark, but what exactly?
I know there is google and such, but I wanna hear straight up from the balt owners!

seafoam? spark plugs? what?

Thanks guys.

Sell it.. lol As soon as the odometer hits 100k the value of the car drops dramatically.... But that only matters if you are looking to sell it at some point.

If reselling isn't either an option or you just love the car that much just do the scheduled maintenance and continue to drive the hell out of it.

I have sold every car I have owned with the mileage between 90k and 100k.

Then drive the hell out of it until it breaks. lol Just do the scheduled maintenance and you will be fine.

I just got my balt and I am far from 100k. We will see what my decision will be 80k from now. lol
If I didnt put as much work/ money into it as I did, maybe Id consider selling it...but I love my balt :) (except the auto transmission lol)
