Help - I've done almost no maintenance!

First, I know I've been very dumb so, no need to tell me that. LOL

Next - I can't believe what I'm about to say but, here it is.....

I bought my CRV in 2013 and kept an eye on the oil life display. When it would get low - maybe 20%, I'd get the oil changed at a quick change shop. They would reset the minder. As a result, I HAVE NEVER SEEN A MAINTENANCE CODE!

I had the brakes changed a year or 2 ago so likely the fluid was changed too. I'm not sure I ever changed the antifreeze or any other fluid. It is possible something was done upon recommendation by the quick oil place but I usually decline those folks so, it is possible nothing else was ever done other than an oil change.

So today I got to wondering what the car might need now that it is at 70,000 miles and 6 years old. I found no maintenance schedule in the owners manual and so came to this site and read up and realized I've not done any maintenance all these years.

I searched here for a question like mine but didn't find an answer. I need help - What do I do now? What services have I missed, what should have been done? I realize I'm going to have to have a lot of work done on the car and that's fine. It's been a good car (even tho' I"ve ignored it) and I would like to bring all service up to date.

Any help is greatly appreciated.

I sat last night and went through all my receipts. It does appear I had the ATF fluid changed about 20K ago.

I also read through the manual again and it doesn't seem I've missed all that much but I do need to attend to it now.

I had decided to do just what you suggested. I'm going to take the car to the dealer and have the anti freeze checked and likely it will need a change. I'm sure some other fluids need changing and will have that done too.

Thanks for your response and suggestion. They were reassuring.

Be well
