60,000 Mile Maintenance?

Hi all,

I have 65,000 miles on my 2006 LT Sedan Automatic.
I'm bringing it in for an oil change and to get the serpentine belt replaced.
Anything else need to be replaced?
Thanks

P.S. Dealer wanted $180 to replace belt, my local shop wanted $90. Guess who I'm going to?

Fuel filter if you haven't changed it yet. Cabin air filter if you haven't changed it yet.

Cabin filter I do myself with a Micron brand filter-better than oem.
I never had the fuel filter changed so i guess I should add that.
Thanks

The tranny fluid doesn't need to be changed unless it looks bad, right?

I'm actually at the dealership right now and they were gonna charge me $400 ish to do the brakes, air filter, oil change, and radiator/power steering fluid flush, hell I can do all that stuff myself so they're only gonna do oil change

Yeah, my friend blew her alternator the other day. The shop wanted 400+. I bought the alternator and had it installed in an hour for 140 just on the part. Screw shops!!

People can feel free to disagree, but I'd never leave any fluid in my car for 100K.

My reading has led me to the belief that time and heat will make your fluid less effective at a chemical level (fluid does far more than just lubricate). In addition, increased service intervals will allow you to visually check seals and take a look at what (or more importantly, what's not) in the pan/filter.
