    Default C5 2003 Maintenance - Special Circumstances

    Have a 2003 Coupe with Z51 option; 6sp.

    Car has ~ 6K miles. Have driven it little over the past few years due to illness. Car still smells/looks like new.

    Aside from a few oil changes, have not done (nor needed to do much) with it. Still original filters, even wiper blades. Have used a Battery Tender Jr. to keep the battery charged. BTW - that is a great product for cars not driven much here in the great Northeast winter!

    However, given it's 6 yrs. old..............would appreciate feedback on how to look at PM on this car. What maintenance would be recommended for this special circumstance...........anything important that is not obvious/atypical of PM listed in owners manual?

    Change all fluids including flushing the brakes. Change the oil filter. Run some Red Line Injector Cleaner through the engine. Replace the wiper blades.

    Then repair any obvious problems.

    Drive the car.

    Oh yeah...have fun with the car.
