I recently acquired a 2004 Lexus ES330. For its age, it doesn't have many miles on it at 73K. Looking through the maintenance records, I didn't see any fluid changes except for oil. It was a well-maintained car - going in for maintenance every 5K miles at the Lexus dealer. Apparently, the dealer didn't think there was anything wrong with the age of the fluids in it. I'm wondering if I should think about having some of the fluids changed. For example, the coolant is a 100K coolant. The ethylene glycol in the coolant doesn't wear out but the anti-corrosion additives do. At 9 years, it may be time for a change. What do you think?
