I'd add transmission fluid to your list and also check for oil leaks (most common near the oil filter) and transmission leaks (from the sleeve). If you are on your original control arm bushings, I am sure they are starting to crack. If you want to get really aggressive I would consider a preventive water pump replacement, but they are quite pricey for these vehicles. If you haven't had an alignment in a while, I find these cars tend to drift out of spec quickly. Of course, I would clear out the sunroof drains and check for any water in the trunk compartment. A new battery and/or IBS sensor would be a good idea.
