Default scheduled maintenance at 80,000 Miles

The scooby has nearly 85,000 miles. I think the last time I had scheduled maintenance done was around 70k. Since then I have changed the PS belt and there are no real problems. When I had the oil changed last week the guy said that the radiator was leeking. He wants to replace the entire radiator, but I think that might be overkill (Limited budget right now).

So is there scheduled maintenance between 80-90k miles? I need to keep this for at least another 20,000 miles so I want to keep the scoob happy.

02 WRX - stock.

the only safe way to stop the radiator leak is to replace it. (hint, aftermarket is WAY cheaper, and better...) 02/03 have horrible radiators, the area where the plastic joins the metal with crimp connections leaks.

also, if you plan on keeping it another 20,000, that puts you right in the timing belt replacement timeframe. probably the most expensive scheduled maintenance item, and DON'T neglect it and wait until it breaks. broken timing belt on suby engine = new engine.

Any sugestions on where to get a new radiator and aprox how much would it cost? I think my guy said $250 - that may have included labor though.

How much is the timing belt? Is it done at 100,000? What else needs to be done?
