2007 Mazda3 2.3 Maintenance scedule after 100,000 miles

Does any one have a maintenance schedule for my Mazda3 2.3 after 100,000 miles??? I obviously do a LOT of driving and it is all hiway. I live in the Arizona desert where temps range from 30 degrees to 125+ degrees. This car was bought brand new by me and has been an awesome ride! I'm sure Mazda does not publish a schedule for young hi mile cars like mine, cuz they want to sell me a new one. This car has been TROUBLE-FREE since day one and I want to keep it that way. Oil, Filters, Air, changed every 3000 mi. Mobil 1 in crankcase. Prestone in rad EVERY fall and spring (complete flush 'n' fill)
ONLY Fram filtration. Tranny 5MTX, changed every 20,000 miles. I even have the original factory installed brake pads with plenty of meat still on them. Brake Fluid changed @ 75,000 Mi. (Casrtrol GT LMA) A little help would be appreciated...valve lash, or any other adjustments. Thanks and BEST Regards, BuggsinAZ

As a side question (not to threadjack) but my car (2008.5 NA 3) just hit 30,000 miles. Went to have my oil change and the technician suggested that I have my brake fluid changed. Since I bought the car used at 26,000 miles, I assume none of the fluids had been changed before. When should I begin swapping out fluids?

At 100k, you're probably due for:

--Spark plugs
--Power steering fluid
--Belts

You may want to start thinking about replacing the battery too, the OEM one seems to last most people 3-5 years. Because of the temperature extremes you see, you'll be closer to the 3-year end of that spectrum.

Not a whole lot else I can think of that you haven't done already. You obviously take good care of your car, keep it up!
