I've got a 2016 with 120K miles. Byakuya's experience pretty much matches mine. I had front brakes done at 70K due to warped rotors. Rear brakes are probably due for a change, but my driving is nearly 100% freeway/highway...they see very little use.

plugs replaced at 85K I think.
Transmission fluid (MTX) replaced at 40K and 80K miles. I'll do that again soon.
Suspension is definitely feeling a little worn...don't think anything is totally blown out, but I'll likely do struts before next winter. It'll probably be around 140K miles when I do suspension.

I'm looking at keeping this on the road for at least another 2.5 years, which will have me around 225K miles. Wondering if I should be replacing brake fluid and coolant this summer?

Back breaks replaced around 80k but probably had some life left.
Replaced plugs around 100 just because, didn't like the ones I got so did it again at 120.
Front struts blew around 140k but this car has seen some terrible roads and suffered a lot of hard hits, so it doesn't surprise me.
Rear struts feel like they're about to go as well so I'll be swapping those out soon.

Beyond that - regular 6k oil changes until 140k, now I've switched to 7000 because the oil tests keep coming back amazing.

Overall I've had no major issues with the car and still love it as much as day 1.
