I would treat years as the same as mileage if your going to keep your car and you care. Change your oil twice a year, short trip, low mile driving is also hard on oil. Coolant flush and change every 3yrs, its realy not that difficult. Brake fluid every 2yrs, it gets contanminated. Read end fluid every 2yrs, its only a quart.
Remember the manual is only a "guide" of bare minumum. They want to sell cars, not have us keep it good running order for a long time.
