What stuff should RX owners do as preventative maintenance? Is it a good idea to change the thermostat, radiator cap.. any other small cheap cooling system components that could cause overheating if they fail?

Mine's a 2006, not sure if that counts as early. There were some rust spots picked up on its 2019 MOT which I had dealt with, this year's passed with no advisories. I'm planning to deal with some spots on the bonnet soon so when I get around to that I'll have a look underneath as well.
