can anyone recommend a good spreadsheet to use to keep all maintenance records. I got one from microsoft but I didn't like it that much. I was wondering if anyone has one that is very complete.

I made one of my own that has the following columns:

Date, Service Description, Mileage, Comments/Notes (such as Warranty work, Synthetic Oil, etc.)

Good luck!

I keep a small notebook in my glove box. On the right hand side I keep the fuel records date, mileage, station, gallons, price, MPG. On the left hand side I note any service items, such as oil changes, repairs, problems. One page every two months. Works well for me and has for 30 years.

Here is a couple of sample pages from my Excel spreadsheet:





I keep a separate sheet for my oil changes. The columns there are date, mileage, filter costs, oil costs, labor costs, total price, miles since change, oil description, filter number, plus some others, like engine run hours, gallons burned per change.

In general maintenance, I have columns for date, mileage, price, Itemized Service (I include part #s and description), and vendor. I also track on that page how many miles on key parts like brake pads, rotors, and tires.

One day, I gotta see someone about this OCD thing....

That's what I'm talking about. Would you be willing to share your knowledge?
