Hey guys I'm looking at purchasing a 2009 evo X for 10 grand, it has aprox 78 thousand kms. It has been sitting in my friends driveway for about 3 years and hasn't been started in over a year. I'm just wondering what maintenance the car will need as I have never owned anything else but a 98 Chevy s15 that doesn't need much maintenence to run good. Never touched a sports car, never driven one, never worked one. Just wondering what I have to do to get it running smoothly. Thanks

SOME evo's have the regular service intervals at every 5000 kms or 6 monthly. Especially with the 4B11T in the X if you miss services and do not use the best oil the timing chains can suffer with failure due to stretching.

Owning one is rewarding, but maintainance is a constant concern

Awesome thanks I will make sure to use the good synthetic oil I'll also drain and fill the transmission, transfer case, rear diff, change sparkplugs. Thank you for your help!
