  - As the result of visual examination or functional measurement of a system’s operation (performance), correct, clean, or replace as required. (Inspect, and if necessary replace the air filter)

*1: If the vehicle is operated in very dusty or sandy areas, inspect and if necessary, clean or replace the air filter more often than the recommended intervals.

*2: Replacement of the timing belt is required at every 100,000 km {60,000 miles}. Failure to replace the timing belt may result in damage to the engine.

*3: Also adjust and inspect the power steering and air conditioner drive belts, if equipped.

*4: If the vehicle is operated under any of the following conditions, change the engine oil and oil filter more often than recommended intervals.

    a. Driving in dusty conditions.

    b. Extended periods of idling or low speed operation.

    c. Driving for long period in cold temperatures or driving regularly at short distance (less than 8 km/5 miles).

*5: If the brakes are used extensively (for example, continuous hard driving or mountain driving) or if the vehicle is operated in extremely humid climates, change the brake fluid annually.

*6: Replace at every 48,000km or every 24 months whichever comes first, if operated under the severe condition such as towing.
