I think the point is that even the newest D1 is 16 years old. Most have over 100,000 miles and most seem to have been neglected once they hit that 100,000 mark. If you buy a used D1 you should address all of the items on the list.
What's more is there are items not on the list that should also be addressed. Everything on a vehicle has a life expectancy and a lot of items are at the end of their life when you approach 20 years. You should also be looking at shocks, springs, ALL bushings, a-arm ball joint, Tie Rod Ends, fuel filter, fuel pump, and so on.
Not everything will need replacement but everything should be checked.
