Things to have inspected..... Belts, air/cabin filters, pcv/evap/canister valves, brake/steering/trans/diff fluids, coolant, spark plugs (if not done around 90K)... I would check for any oil leaks or any seals that looks like they are corroding and may start to leak soon. Lastly, make sure the timing belt/chain has been replaced! If timing belts start to wear and snap, most likely you will have internal engine failure and damage..... If you can get through all this to make sure everything looks good, you will be in great shape... Then just keep up with it! Hope this helps.

What maintenance/service is recommended for the 2005 Nissan Frontier at the 50,000 miles marker?

the only listing for 50,000 miles is to change oil and filter and rotate tires, this is assuming you have done the other services at 30,000 miles which has alot more done but this is all to be done at 50,000. hope this helps.

We have a 2002 Toyota Avalon in perfect shape with 40,000 miles, our Mechanic has told us that Toyota recommends changing the timing belt after 8 years, we are hesitant to do this maintenance because of...

Since it is a rubber belt, even though the mileage doesn't warrant a replacement, the time interval can. It's like changing oil, 3 months/3000 miles, most people will never change oil every three months if they didn't reach 3000 miles, however, oil degrades and becomes acidic over time so you'll still end up with engine damage. Same thing with the belt, low mileage, but with time it can dry rot or crack and if it breaks, well, you may have much more than $700 in repairs to look forward to. But for your info, the timing belt in my nissan truck is 10 years old and has 115,000 miles on it. Nissan recommends changing it at 100k miles. I'm taking a risk with mine for sure.

90,000 miles now what

If all this stuff hasn't been done before, it's not a bad idea to get it done. It'll have to be dealt with sooner or later.
