Default 99K Maintenance

Hey all,

My 02 Bonne SE is coming up for it'* 99,000mi maintenance. Can anyone recommend anything that I might need to have done to prepare for life after 100,000mi?

I've been pretty good about maintenance with this car, but I'll admit I'm not very knowledgeable about cars in general. The last time I had any major maintenance done was in the 50K-70K range (all fluid systems flushed and changed, as well as spark plugs, etc.)

I know I should be due for some of that again, but I don't want to feel like the mechanic is taking advantage of me either.

I bought this car new and I'd like to keep it for as long as possible, it'* the first time I'll ever be taking a car over the 100,000mi mark.

Thanks All!

Has your upper intake manifold ever been replaced or your lower intake gaskets? These are items known to fail on the naturally aspriated motors over time. While there are some that have made it well past 100K miles on the original parts there are also many that did not. Since your motor can last into the 200-300 thousand mile range with little TLC, I'd suggest these as part of the regiment you are planning if they are original.
