Default 2005 Honda Accord Ex at 100,000 miles what service do i need to do?

I have a 2005 Honda Accord Ex its at about 100,000 miles what services do i need 2 do? I have not done the 90,000 mile service and dont know how important that really is, i heard the 105,000 mile service would be more important. What do you guys think?

Also the dealer is really expensive so i thought i would try this place which i heard is really good what do you guys think of the #3 service on the very bottom, is it too expensive for the service they would do? Also how do i know if i have platinum spark plugs?

Assuming you've skipped maintanence for a long time:

Replace air filter, inspect body and frame, inspect brake hose/line, inspect brakes and traction control, replace cabin air filter, inspect CV joints, replace coolant, lubricate doors, hood and trunk, inspect drive belt, change engine oil, inspect exhaust system, replace transmission fluid, inspect all other fluids, inspect fuel lines, inspect lighting and horns, replace oil filter, inspect parking brake system, replace spark plugs, inspect steering and suspension, inspect adn rotate tires

That depends on the car , if it's a V6 or a 4 cylinder. Most of the filters and all that was suppose to be done at 90k, but if u did not do the 90k it may be a little more. 4 cylinder has a timing chain so.. don't worry about the T belt.If is a V6 than worry about it. NONE of the 2005 Accord have a cap and rotor or plug wires or fuel filter so... Don't worry about that. Brake fluid u change this fluid when it's 3 years old the first time and then every 2 years. I don't know if u did it in 2008 if not do it now. Spark plugs at 105,000 on 4 cylinder and V6. They are platinum spark plugs , about 20 to 30 dollars each. Don't get el cheapo aftermarket plugs, this car has a coil on top of the plugs if the plugs can't take the heat they will get damage it will set check engine light on , misfire and if a little piece comes loose it will damage the engine. A/T fluid every 30k drain and refill, if u have never change this fluid before well now at 100k flush the trans by draining the fluid out and refill then drive the vehicle around the block or so and drain again and refill repeat this step 3 or 4 times. U don't have a trans pan and gasket or filter to change on this model. Inspect air filter , a/c cabin filter , front brake pads and rotors, rear brakes and rotors or drums. Battery and charging system. Tires and suspension. wipers and all that.. Hope this helps and Good luck!
