Timing Belt?or chain.Timing Belts wear out and break and mess up the motor but chains are bathed in oil and never need replacing.Spark plugs these days seem to be like new after 100,000 so i would just ask about the timing system, then change oil regularly slow down around corners and relax. Dont trust mechanics if you're female, they like to play on your fears if they need the work.

If it is an automatic, have the transmission flushed. This will cost about 120.00Otherwise change all plugs and spark plug wires. The timing belt is not a worry until about 110K. Change the fuel filter and add STP gas treatment every 3rd fuel up. Most Honda's are almost undestructable if you are a normal driver. There weakness is automatic transmissions.

Check your owner's manual and don't listen to anyone else. They just want your money.There is no service recommended at 75,000 miles but there is one at 70,000 miles and at 80,000 miles etc. Check your owner's manual on page 200.Basically change the oil every 10,000 miles and inspect and adjust certain items every 20,000 miles.Replace the air filter every 30,000 miles. Replace spark plugs and timing belt every 110,000 miles. Replace the coolant at 120,000 miles or 10 years and then every 60,000 miles or 5 years after that. Replace transmission fluid at 120,000 miles or 6 years and then every 90,000 miles or 5 years after the first change. Replace brake fluid every 3 years regardless of mileage. Replace dust and pollen filter every 120,000 miles.You only need to do these things more often IF your driving meets the severe use definition. Follow the Maintenance Schedule for Severe Conditions if you drive your car MAINLY under one or more of the following conditionsriving less than 5 miles (8 km) per trip or, in freezing temperatures, driving less than 10 miles (16 km) per trip.Driving in extremely hot [over 90°F (32°C)] conditions.Extensive idling or long periods of stop-and-go driving.Driving with a roof rack, or driving in mountainous conditions.Driving on muddy, dusty, or deiced roads.IF your driving is severe use driving then you would change your oil twice as often and your transmission fluid at 60,000 miles the first time and then every 30,000 miles See page 202 of the owner's manual.I change the oil in our 2002 CR-V every 10,000 miles and I know that that is OK because I have had the oil analyzed when I change it.Use only Honda transmission fluid and only the recommended motor oil grade 5W20.
