Should I have the power steering fluid flushed and changed?

(2000 Honda CR-V)
in San Diego, CA on October 07, 2011
A local oil change place told me that my power steering fluid needed to be replaced or bunch of bad things will happen. My car has about 120k miles and I don't recall if the power steering fluid has been changed. I am the original owner.

As with all fluids in your car power steering fluid can break down and not work as well as when it was new. Changing the power steering fluid is a good maintenance item. It will help extend the life of the power steering pump as well as the steering rack. However, it is a maintenance item so it isn't anything that will cause you to break down.
