55000 is probably just oil and filter...........

60000 is when you hit some maintenance.

You probably wont need anything like fuel additives if you've been filling up with the regular brands of gas though some people on here swear by something called Sea Foam to clean out deposits in the engine. I recently hit 70k and I haven't done much other than fuel filter and new spark plugs. Maybe I should get on that, haha.

Also, if you have the car's manual the maintenance schedule booklet should be in there some where which tells you what needs to be done and at what intervals.
