Question for Maintenance (More then Engine / tinny Oil)

I see a lot of people talking about how often should we change the engine oil / the lifefill tinny fluid
However, I have more question.

What about:
Coolant
Brake Fluid
Power Steeling Fluid
Air Filter
etc..etc...etc....

I only see Engine Oil and Spark Plug maintenance info from the computer. and the Manual didn't tell me anything at all.

Does anyone one know how often should we replace those fluid?

the onboard system should prompt you when its time to do that stuff.

These fluid are inspected/replaced during Inspection I. When the time comes, the OBC will alert you.

i called my dealer because i wanted to get prices on maintenance after the 50k limit. I was curious about brakes as well as oil changes. Its one hundred dollars for a once a year oil change, but its two hundred dollars for an oil change and for them to refill all other fluids. I am going with the 200 one bc i know that fluids should be replaced like once a year and it gives me one less thing to do
