I have had a Cuore Automatic for a couple of years, it has served me well, and I want to do some cost effective affordable, preventative maintenence, and some other stuff, so I will list them to make answering easier.

1. Would it be a good/bad idea to put in some new/better shock absorbers? Not that this car has bad ones, but how much would it cost to put in better ones? Would that lead to any issues? Drop in resale value?

2. Its an automatic, and I hear the gearboxes are "delicate" and expensive to replace. Any preventative maintenance here?

3. What cheap preventative maintenance should be done? Winter time is coming, so a cng tune up is in order as well. Not factory kitted with CNG.

Thanks all.
