How often do you change plugs/wires/cap+rotor on these cars? Cause ours had the same ones on there for a long long time.. over 100 000 km.
Usually, whatever the owner's manual says.
Some change their oil more often. Some use synthetic oil.
Some drive harder than others so they do more maintenance/repairs.
Some do mods so they do a LOT more than others.
