After having the A/C compressor replaced in our VW Golf, the engine idle speed drops way down to near-stalling whenever the clutch is released while driving. It pops right back up, but it's a bit unnerving. [more inside]

What proactive maintence is worth doing on a car with 120,000 miles on it? I have 2000 VW Golf automatic trans with 120,000 miles on it. Id like the keep the car until it basicly drops say 200,000 miles. Besides the usual oil changes, brake jobs, tires. etc.. whats worth doing to the car to keep it runnings indefinitely. For instance is it worth $900 to change the shocks and struts. Are the various "flushes" worth the cost. Etc etc...
