Try driving first with just engine oil change. Doesn’t mean you need to replace any parts just because it’s a 2010 car.

As mentioned by others, drive now till its open for us to head in JB. Fix/ service those safety area first.
JB huh? Look forward to early next year, then i assumed can head in without added travel restrictions.

Recent tried workshop in Kaki Bukit, send my 12yo ride for servicing. Boss meticulous. OMO type.

Whitesnail Performance/ Servicing Center. Find them on FB.

Most of the time when owners wants to sell their rides, they will not bother to maintain it.

Take it as a no, have an oil change asap. That's the 1st thing I did when I've collected my ride recently. Why not go for one that provides XX-points check and let them tell you what parts needs to be changed (of course take note that you're not obliged to proceed if price is not right).

Tires are changed, did you check the year of manufacture?

Tires look at the threads and the DOM.

First things I would change is the engine oil and ATF.

The acronyms are quite new to me. May i know what is DOM (date of manufacture?) and ATF?

Didnt know can find date of manufacture, please advise where can it be found on the tires. And max age of tires being manufactured such that i should change them even though they are new?

i was told a sticker at the driver sun shade flap showed the car travelled 2000km after owner has sent for servicing, should be able to run for another 1-2000 km before changing?

DOM - date of manufacture. You look ar the tire wall for 4 digits (eg 2717 means week 27 of 2017).

ATF - Automatic transmission fluid.

Tires - Depends on tire wear (but recommended to change no later than 6 years anyway - and if not constantly parked under the sun)
ATF - There is no such nonsense as “lifetime” fluid. Change every 40k km at the very least.

You can actually gauge by looking at the dip stick. Low level, go. Gunk, go. I personally felt the engine was running rough, thus I wasted no time and went ahead.

Considering that oil change these days are pretty affordable at around $5x, I would still recommend to go for a peace of mind.

How does that sticker work? Does it show the next mileage point for oil servicing? If thats the case then it seems fine. then again, I changed mine within a month of purchase even though i could go another 5 to 6k
