fyi, fuel injected cars do not need 'tune-ups'. that's only for older cars with carburetors when you had to manually 'tune up' the air/fuel mixture on the carb.

the only things you should need (providing the belts and water pump have been serviced already) are new spark plugs, oil change (including oil filter), and possibly air filter.

no tune-up required on any of the fuel-injected cars.

By tune-up I meant service. The belts and water pumps were changed earlier this year at 62k miles. I'm also having the brake fluid and coolant changed. Anyone else ?
