What O2 codes are you getting?

On general advice, depending on where you live you may want to keep an eye out for sub-frame/cross-member rust.
I use fluid film on the sub-frames and suspension parts at least once per year; it works pretty well at keeping the rust in check.

If you have a CVT, I recommend you change the fluid and filters every 30-50k miles depending on driving conditions.
The manual says 120k but is way off the mark.
