Reliable Vehicle wearing well

Predictable still drives well. Brakes can be troublesome, they are prone to sticking if not kept lubricated. Pollen filter has to be replaced to stop the fan motor dropper resistor over heating. Windscreen washer motor fuse can blow in cold weather. Electric window switches have feeble connector pins that oxidise and stop the windows working. The diesel air intake is prone to coking up and does not raise any warning lamps. But does seriously degrade performance. Also not that the antifreeze anti Corrosion properties degrades to being useless at 10 years. It’s not part of the service schedule. It’s worth changing as it could save some expensive repairs. But for 15 years service, is that bad?
