Yes just regular service like for oil changes every 3,000 miles or every 3 months like any normal car. I own a Porsche 928 with the 4.5 liter V8 so they are not to bad when it comes to service these Porsche's. You can do most of the service yourself if you know how to use a socket wrench.. The Porsche your looking at is really awesome and with 45,000 miles it's good because then you know it's been serviced when needed and not sat to where most exotics do and then the head gaskets leak etc etc.
So if you can afford a 911 I would go for it you won't regret it either they are way fun to drive.

Good Luck!

To stay true to the Porsche value of ownership, you should take the car into a dealership as they electronically input data into their system and a pump is required to do oil changes since their is oil in lines traveling to the cooler at the front of the car. One mistake and you are out an engine.

Red light on maintenance required is on, what would that mean. Oil has been changed recently, approximately 45,000 miles on the car

the maintenance schedule is in the owners manual on the last 2 pages I believe, But here are some of the things to check the maintenance schedule on that car calls for oil changes every 3,750 miles if you primarily use the car around town or 7,500 if you do mostly highway driving without stop and go traffic. Most cars should go by the 3,750 schedule.

tire rotations should be every 7,500 miles. Brakes should be checked when the tires are rotated.

the major service on the 4 cylinder is every 30,000 miles. that includes the tune-up items of replacing spark plugs, adjusting the valves, replacing the air filter, transmission fluid, interior cabin filter and the inspections and adjustments.

the 6 cylinder does not need the valve adjustment or spark plug replacement until 105,000 miles. otherwise, the fluids and filter replacements are every 30k.

the timing belt on both the 4 cyl and the 6 cyl is 105,000. at that time the water pump and coolant are also replaced as well as the other accessory drive belts.

Brake fluid should be replaced every 3 years or 45,000 miles.

What is the yearly maintenance for a mitsubishi ecipse

Maintenance schedules are usually not on a yearly schedule. They are based on miles or months (whichever comes first) and what services are required depend on how much you drive your car. If you down load a factory service manual it will tell you at what mile/month intervals to do maintenance.

How often oiol change on 2004 avalon

If you have an extended warranty that requires a certain schedule, follow that. Otherwise, per the testing that Consumer Reports did a few years ago, six months/6000 miles is fine. Shops want you to come in at three months/3000 miles, but based on long-term (60000 miles) wear testing that they did on multiple cars (NYC cabs), there was no difference in wear between 3000 mile and 6000 mile intervals.
