Hopefully they actually did the 30,000 services and not just clean the filter. Thats damn expensive!

its average price. actually they did everything and alot of times they will void your warranty when not done, I had CEL so i HAD to take it in. Car runs so much smoother now, actually feels like more peppy-er after it!

So what exactly did they do? Usually at 30k all you need is coolant flush, cabin filter, maybe oil change, and inspect a lot of other things. No offense, but you got hosed.

most of those thing you can do yourself.......and save alot and buy MUCH better products that what the dealers give you. butttttttt if you just wanna get it done quick and have the cash i guess the "tune up" at a shop, which you dont know really what the did/didnt do, is easier

hmm so:
plugs= 10 dollars
wires=45 dollars
cap and rotor = 8+20
fluids = 10 coolant, auto tranny fluid 40, brake fluid =8, power steering, 8
oil change=15
air filter=12

some basic math... so approx: 176.... +3 hours to do yourself...



and these cars still have a cap and rotor? theyre not electronic?!?!

I didnt get hosed. I got my warranty still. dealerships could void it if not done properly or with them. happened to me and a few friends last time and I have a bad fuel filter assembly so Im glad i took it in all replaced under warranty.

err.. yeah do it yourself. save the money.. for the extra money the slam on you for the services, its not worth the warranty... the only the i ever got fixed when i still had my warranty was a window motor... yeah and i do my own tune-ups with better parts for half the price...

also.. if you have to get something fixed under warranty, they have to be able to PROVE that what you did to your car yourself had a direct affect on whatever is broken...

you are all assuming she knows how to do all these things.

Something you should consider is spark plugs not being an everyday thing everyone knows how to change.

In general, a tech that works at the dealership probably does a more thorough inspection on the car than you can as an enthusiast.

lol^ agreed..
and last time i brought my car to the dealership... it came out with black grease all over it that took me forever to get off even on one of my seats!!!
no thanks =]
and if she doesnt know how to do it.. she should learn. shes a car enthusiast so she should want to learn how to do these things.. no offense matrixgirl, im not ragging on you im just expressing my opinions in general.

Im thinking it all depends on the reputation/experience of the dealership and tech working on the vehicle...

ive personaly watched techs at my work and i can say that they ALL do great work, and pay attention to all the little details

I feel the same way. I had some problems with my sensors once and took it in to my local dealership. The tech that talked to me really knew his **** and really took good care of me. To top it all off they threw a couple bucks off my bill just because I chatted with them about cars for a little.
