    Mine is a 2010 with about 18,000 miles.

    1. I've never changed the windshield wipers. Most of our daily drivers its lucky if you get a year out of them. Most of the wear comes during the winter probably. Mine is a fair weather car and the only time I usually use them is after a car wash, they still seem in good shape. It helps that my car is waxed within a inch of its life so water really beads on the windshield.

    2. I've never added washer fluid. See number one above.

    3. I'm still running the original tires. At some point they may just get old but the RSA's still have good tread.

    Anything else that doesn't get done to a car that doesn't get driven a lot? These are the only things I could think of.

    Might want to list "Drive your car" as a thing you do not do.

    Mine is a 2012 that just hit 17K miles. Same list as the OP, except I do have new tires. The original Goodyear F1's did not last very long.

    This is true. Mine has 11k miles. My son is a tire tech. He looked at my tires this past weekend and said "It won't be long". The tires are not needing to be replaced, but it's not going to be much longer.

    I've never checked the oil . In fact I've only opened the hood a handful of times . I'm going to do another Canada road trip soon maybe I'll check before I go , probably not though it'll tell me if something's wrong. :):p
