I've read here the only thing that really needs done are tire rotations @ 7500 miles. I was wondering if these additional items seem reasonable even though they aren't mentioned (at least anywhere I've seen so far)...
@ 1 year replace cr2032 battery in fobs.
@ 1 year replace windshield wipers.
@ 1 year replace cabin air filter with carbon filter.
@ 1 year check agm battery (load testing).

IMO: 2032 battery and wipers as needed. Air filter 6 months. I've never load tested a 12V battery in a car but they usually need to be changed every 4-6 years depending upon usage and climate.

IIRC the battery in our car is an AGM (Absorbent Glass Mat) unit. If so I would expect it to last quite a bit longer than your typical flooded lead acid battery.

i think all those things can be done on an as-needed basis. no reason to pre-emptively change them. you'll be able to tell when your fob needs a new battery, likewise when the wipers aren't working.

cr2032 remote battery should last about 3 years ( 2.5-4 years) .. ... replacing it every year is a waste ...
AGM battery test & check after 3 years, should get 4-6 ..
