maintenance for low mileage van
I have a 2011 that only has about 20K miles on it. I'm the little old lady that only drives it to church on sundays, except that I don't go to church and I'm not that old. lol. However, with less than 20K it has already had 2 motor mounts replaced and just needed a new battery. Yes, I live in AZ where the summers will kill anything, but at least 5 our of 7 days, it's garaged. So, I guess my questions are, 1. is it odd that it already needed motor mounts, 2. Some maintenance is timed based, so what should I do as far as maintenance for a 5yr van, although it only has 20K and 3. What can I do, since I don't drive it very much to keep it in good shape. When I took it in for the motor mounts, the mechanic told me not driving it is almost as bad as putting a lot of miles on it.
