Audra Fordin, Owner at Great Bear Auto Shop Dear Alicia, The SE, SEL and Sport all reuire a little bit different maintenance because they have different features. That being said, the general maintenance is pretty much the same for all. Change the oil and filter check the air filter and cabin filter, inspect the exhaust, steering components, brakes cooling system transmission fluid and tires. Good job keeping up with the maintenance! Mechanically yours,
