That sounds about right. I would check the brakes and tires for wear and possible rotation. Other than that, sounds like your good to go. I'm fixing to have 20 k on mine, so all that is in the near future for myself. I would like to add though, I think it's neat that your conider the cabin filter. I don't know bout yours, but that didn't come standard on mine and I added it. Just thought I was one in a million that thought of doing that being that it's never talked about or been brought up.

yeah the cabin air filter really works and i can tell its time to change it. i took a peek at it and its nasty.

is there any instructions to change atx transmissions? or is it like any other? i changed it on my old 91 celica and it was fairly easy. but im thinking if its any different on my 2002.
