Ticking could be the normal direct injection noise
topping fluids- not much to top since the oil is being changed anyway the transmission is sealed there is no power steering fluid and coolant should be good to 100k
I guess you can check your wiper fluid
...The 2IS is really pretty easy... by the book you're looking at:
(you can go much longer, safely... at least 7500 on normal oil, and at least 10-15k on any decent synthetic, 25k on Amsoil... but 5k is what the book says, the better to make the dealer money)
Change air filter and cabin filter (you can do these yourself, maybe 5 minutes each, and pretty cheap)
Change brake fluid- probably gonna pay someone to do this unless you're pretty comfortable working on your car... it's not super hard if you are, but it's one of those things you want to be SURE is done correctly- leaving air in brake lines is a Very Bad Thing.
Spark plugs (again, can do yourself or not, depending how comfy you are working on cars... this is at least less of a "do it wrong can kill you" thing than brakes )
Oh, you'll need to change the battery in your smartkey every 2 years or so, if you want to count that.
That's about it for the RWD auto 250 and 350...
If you have an AWD 250 you'll have differential fluid changes in there occasionally... and if you have a manual RWD 250 you're the lucky one who can change transmission fluid (but will also get to change your clutch and flywheel for around $3,000 eventually)
