i would replace the timing belt, water pump and tensioner as soon as humanly possible. some say 80,000 miles and others say 100,000 miles. either way, you're close to that.

this is your number one major maintenance upgrade.

there are quite a few topics on this. check the how to topics in the tech section.

Timing belt, water pump, torque struts and check the control arm bushings. I would suggest getting a radiator flush/fill, tranny fluid flush/fill (if automatic) and replace the spark plugs.

It may seem like a laundry list but all that should have you sitting pretty for a while.
