Most new members here have bought a used Spyder and may have not gotten the Owner's Manual.
Some of these new owners ask about proper service intervals. To answer that, I have condensed
the Service Schedule, as presented below. It has some redundancy due to its recursive nature, but
there's nothing drastically wrong with it. For instance: Sparkplugs should be checked at 30,000 miles
after they have been installed and replaced 60,000 miles after installation, regardless of the car's mileage.




Every 5,000 miles (8065 Km)
* Replace Engine Oil & Filter
* Inspect/Replace Air Filter
* Check Tires (including spare) for Damage & Correct Pressure
* Check/Top-Up All Fluids


Every 15,000 miles (24,200 Km)
* Perform 5,000 mile Check
* Check & Adjust Serpentine Belt
* Check Operation of On-board Diagnostic System
* Inspect Exhaust System
* Inspect Brake System (Front & Rear), Lines & Hoses
* Check & Adjust Wheel Alignment (Front & Rear)
* Check Wheel Balance (All Four)
* Check All Accessories for Proper Operation
* Inspect All Lights


Every 30,000 miles (48,390 Km)
* Perform 15,000 mile Check
* Inspect Fuel System
* Replace Transaxle Oil
* Check All Chassis/Body Bolts
* Check Sparkplugs
* Flush & Replace Engine Coolant
* Align Wheels (Front/Rear)
* Inspect Steering System


Every 45,000 miles (72,580 Km)
* Perform 30,000 mile Check
* Inspect Ball Joints, Dust Covers, & Constant Velocity Boots


Every 60,000 miles (96,800 Km)
* Perform 45,000 mile Check
* Replace Serpentine Belt
* Replace Sparkplugs



Edit:
If you have a fabric replacement top, be advised that its water-repellancy should be renewed annually, using a product such as 303 High Tech Fabric Guard. It's a messy job.

I would add replace Brake/Clutch/SMT fluid to the 30k flushing. It's recommended every 1-2 years by fluid manufacturers.
