Geez Bert, I don't know if it was ever serviced. I just purchased the car. The car is far from perfect but the price was right and it has low mileage (73K). Next year I can look back and know if it really was a good deal....let you know then. The fluid looks clean. I guess the best thing for me to do is have the fluid and filter changed.
The first things I am cleared included new front tires, just changed the front brake pads, outer right tie rod end. As I type I am pondering whether or not to try changing the ball joints. It is a poooor holiday weekend here in Massachusetts so there is a good chance I will get into the ball joints before the day ends.
