Generally a solid car.  All the v6 engines require a timing 
belt/idler/water pump between 75k and 90k.  Failure to do this costs you an 
engine (1).  About $1k at the dealer.  That's the only major item I can 
think of.

- Change the oil, obviously.
- change brake fluid every 2 years
- suspension and bushings begin to wear after ~100k miles, but can be made 
"good as new"
