Keeping your pony well maintained?

Just curious what the best route is to take when it comes to keeping your mustang in perfect, running condition? My GT has just under 90,000 miles on it (the majority of them being highway), and she runs like a champ, but I still want to keep everything in pristine condition (or as close as possible).

Are 30k mile tune-ups really necessary? What should I be looking for/doing in terms of maintenance?

Absolutely 30k tune-ups are necessary. The reason you change the fluids is because they lubricate metal components. Over time these break down and you're essentially runnin water in you engine, tranny, etc. (not literally but it's about the best way I can think to put it). I'm also a maintenance nazi, but it will most definitely prolong the life of your car.

Check your owners manual to find all the routine maintenance

I agree! The Ford dealer here usually sends me a reminder with a coupon near oil change time. I let them look it over from top to bottom and they usually test the fluids and say this is nearing replacement. Then I go and do it myself. The oil change is a wash.
