First off WELCOME to HAF........

since you got no clue on any service performed i would do a major service

engine + tranny fluid ( Honda atf-z1) , plugs, air and fuel filter, valve adjustment, and have the shop inspect the timing belt ,,,,,
if there is a shop that specializes in Hondas i would go there rather than the dealer ( cheaper ) and they should still use honda parts

and what that guy said about the tranny fluid being tick etc etc,, pay no attention to that

DH forgive me if I miss something but Major service should include

Timing belt
water pump
drive belts
coolant flush/ change
trans fluid change
brake fluid change
PS fluid change
Oil change w filter
inspect air filter and change if needed
Inspect brakes
adjust parking brake
inspect rubber suspension parts and replace as needed (this has to do more with the car being 9 years old than the milage)
inspect allignment
inspect suspension
inspect tires

Yeu,, buddy ol pal there is nothing to forgive ,,as i always appreciate your inputs.

the timing belt IS NOT part of the major service.. if you go to a dealer and ask for a major service , it will never include the timing belt., neither a wheel alignment nor a p/s fluid change , you can inspect wheel alignment but all you do is actually see how the tire are wearing ..if uneven wear than you reccomend a wheel alignment but it is extra money ,normally 60 to 70 dollars

adding to the above list ,what is also included on a major service is,a valve adjustment, a fuel filter , spark plugs,,

well based on the milage/age of the car, they should tell you t-belt is due when you ask for major service at 90K...at least my dealer did when I had my 94....

i totally agree with you,, the tech should ask wether t-belt has been done and if not , reccomend that customer does it in the very near future ..
some people do it at 60, 70, 80k miles / ..so at 90k t-belt could have been done already at another shop , but if customer goes to same shop all the time than obviosely they would know if it has been done or not and advice customer accordingly
