2009 AURA XE
Default Recommended service/inspections for 2009 XE?

My 2009 Aura XE is going on 13 years old, 115k miles, and I'm not looking to replace it anytime soon! I've done the routine oil/tire rotation stuff through the years, but I expect I'm missing some things that are probably due for replacement (and there are probably recommendations I wouldn't get from the car's manual...). Any suggestions on what to ask for, if I were to take it to a mechanic/dealer and ask for a more thorough bit of service?

Key items that have been done over the years:
- Oil changes
- Brakes, tires, wipers, air filters, battery (2x) of course
- Shifter cable recall was fixed
- TPMS replaced
- New transmission in summer 2018; also at that time:
-- Tie rods
-- Exhaust manifold
- Front headlamp bulbs (always a fun few hours...)
- Shim in the connector of the rear middle brake light to fix flaky connection
- Replaced turn signal lever (2x)

Car spent first 5 years in the midwest, then the past 7 in California. People freak out about the underside's rust until I tell em that

More cosmetic things that I've done...
- replace the hood and trunk gas lift cylinders
- replaced right rear door lock solenoid thingy
- front windshield
- That big ole cracked plastic shield under the front leading edge
