Default Love my Outlander but Need Your Help Regarding Maintenance

Hi

I bought a 2009 Outlander LX 2009 V6 3.0 FWD brand new and I love it.

It's been flawless and the only maintenance I've done is:

i) Brakes
ii) Oil change every 5K Miles
iii) Flush transmission at 60K

It now has 120K miles on it and runs fine fuel economy wise (still getting 25 mpg which is what I always got). But I'm wondering what
maintenance *must* I do without breaking the bank. Right now its only worth about $3-4K.

a) Spark plug replacement?
b) Transmission flush again?
c) Radiator flush?
d) Something else?

Thanks in advance.

Default Thoughts?

I've already been to the dealer but they of course recommend everything which will cost $3k+

So I'm asking for what's absolutely required to keep it going for another 3 years or so.


Thanks in advance.

Replace all Fluids, change spark plugs, change timing belt, get an alignment and balance. You can get this work done at Firestone, Pepboys take advantage of coupons.

I try to follow the factory maintenance schedule exactly. A lot of the fluids say "check" not replace, so it depends on your driving habits and environment. In addition to your basics you covered, I would definitely recommend spark plugs, air filter, brake fluid, timing belt every 105k miles.
