Gen1 shocks & struts

Has anyone changed out their shocks & struts for their gen1s and if so, at what mileage did you do it? I’m at 85k miles at the moment, but the car feels like new when going over bumps (though maybe it just seems that way since wear is gradual over time).

Haven't changed coolant yet? If not you're probably due with your 2013. My 2013 build date was October 2012 so I had to get it done recently. If over 90k miles you're probably due for a transmission fluid drain and fill too.
Don't go scaring people like that! :)

Engine coolant 5 years or 150,000 miles
Transmission Fluid 97,500 miles (45,000 under SEVERE conditions but few Volts will fall under that category)

Still got another year on my 2013 coolant and plenty of time for the transmission fluid.
