2010 Mazda CX-9 Question: Service to a throttle body
Every car should have their throttle body cleaned and their air filter replaced about once a year or every 15,000 or 16,000 miles which is the equivalent of 1 year of driving. You should figure about $1200 per year in maintenance over the first 10 years of a cars life, the first 4 years will be less, then a new set of tires, brakes front and back, shocks and struts at about 90k, it will begin to add up. It is very much worth it to properly maintain a car, so it lasts, that way you will not have to spend another $20-$30k every 5-8 years. A well kept car should last about 20 years. - dandd
