Default Re: Is a 100,000 mile plus car a bad idea?

Everything 100,000 is pretty infrequent in the grand scheme of things. Doing everything all at once lowers effort (if you're DIYing) or cost (if you're paying someone to do the labor). It keeps the car driving like new and eliminated hunting for issues.
Makes sense. I can see your point.
