50k mile to-do list

Im almost to the 50k mile mark and it kills me. Im getting ready to take the car in for a oil change what are some other things that need to be taken care of at this mile mark? I.E.- a tune up, any other fluid changes and any other things like that ??

Mine just turned over 36k but at 50k I will replace cabin air filter and engine air filter. I replaced both filters already at 24k but also replace the belt under the hood no matter how good it looks.Battery will probably be ok for another year.
Just my $0.02's worth.

If you haven't done the rear diff fluid, I would recommend that. Tranny/gear fluid? I've done them both this year, but I bought mine with 42k on it, and I drive it hard, so just wanted to be sure that it had new stuff in it, not sure what the previous owner did or had.

The cabin filter should be replaced more often than 50k, I believe. Haven't done mine yet, keep forgetting to do it. I bought a K&N engine filter the day after I brought my car home.

I found $80 in my jeans pocket. The kid in me said "buy nerf guns and candy!" But then the adult in me said "buy vodka, nerf guns and candy!"

Depends how much you want to spend. I'd do coolant (dexcool doesn't last 100K) power steering flush, diff service, brake fluid, trans fluid.

Easy to find, just open hood and look at top of cowl under wiper on curb side. Three push in snap connectors and lift off panel to see filtler in slot.
