You're approaching 120K. Check the owner's manual for recommended items.
On the 1st. Generation 2.2's, it was time (120K) for a timing belt with recommended water pump, oil pump re-seal, cam and crank shaft seals.
Not sure about the schedule for later models like yours.
Check the brake pad and rotor condition. Change the brake fluid too.
See if the dealer has maintenance records they can share with you. Maybe some of this work was done recently.
Otherwise your list is a good start.

The 96-99 2.5 are notorious for blowing them. They will start by occasionally overheating here and there, and then they go.
Otherwise you have mentioned all you need to change out.
