Well I just acquired this car from my dad, been driving it before than but never did any maintenance on her. What kind of maintenance is needed? I have already done some already.

I have:
Changed Cabin Air Filter
Going to change brake pads and rotor's in front
Going to have an oil change soon

What else is needed at 58,299 miles?

thanks

In addition to listed maint, I would check the rear shoes, ( I assume it is drums) and watch for cylinder leaks. Pic attached is '03 from non rust area and it shows starting of cylinder leak and failure. If you replace the shoes, you need to replace the cylinders also. This car had the shoes repalced and not the cylinders and note they are leaking quickly. This would ruin the shoes and a 'do-over'. This car bought used and I found this in my check it out list.

Good luck and congrsts.
