    Default Need advice for Mark X Servicing

    Hello everyone,

    I'm going to be getting a mark x (either 250G or 300G) later on this week. It's obviously going to be a used car, and I'll need to service it accordingly.

    I'm horrible with cars so I need your advice on two things:

    What things specifically should be replaced and serviced immediately (assume a 75k driven car)? I know fluids need to be changed, but which ones? Which filters? And should I get engine tuning and wheel alignment done as well? If I'm changing fluids, is there any specific oils or liquids I should be using (I don't want to damage the car with the wrong fluids!)

    Secondly, where should I get all this servicing done from? Again, I'm not very good with cars, and the service centre will probably be able to screw up the car without me even realizing, so I need people who are very reliable, trustworthy, and skilled. Should I go to a Toyota service centre? (I am in Karachi). Also, please let me know what the approximate cost for all of this will be from the various service centres you suggest.

    Fluids: Engine Oil, Coolant, Transmission fluid, differential fluid, Brake fluid, power steering fluid.
    Filters: Engine oil, Engine Air, Cabin Air, Brake Servo Booster.

    I would suggest OEM parts and fluids.

    For a service center, I am sure PWers in Pakistan can suggest good places.
