You're approaching 120k miles, and usually a timing belt would be due around every 60k, so you should prepare for that. That's the really comprehensive service that includes a LOT of parts and labor - timing belt, tensioner, accessory belt(s), spark plugs, all fluids, all filters, water pump, thermostat, full inspection, tire rotation, etc.
