    Default 30K mile service

    What have folks been paying for this service? I was quoted $425.00, is that reasonable?

    You need to find an itemized list of what they plan on doing. Personally, at 30k miles, all I see is air filter,oil and filter change, tire rotation and in cabin air filter. The rest should just be inspections. Personally, I can do all of this myself, but others may not be mechanically inclined, but 425 sounds like a bit much to swap some filters, and poke around the car.

    I have found dealers have their own service packages at various mileage milestones that they sell regardless of vehicle. If you take your service manual in and go over exactly what it says to do at 30K, it is likely to be a much shorter list and less $$.

    Good points, the only additonal service is a coolant flush. You are correct, everything they want to do, I can do for next to nothing.

    Thanks for the heads up.

    No need to flush the coolant on a car this old with only 30k miles, it's a unnecessary service. The manual states 5 years or 60k miles, whichever comes first. Check the reservoir when cold I added about a cup of distilled water to the tank. In terms of maintenance, when it comes to listening to dealer or engineers, I choose engineer 100% of the time.

    30,000 miles should be - change filters (I can do that) check brakes (I'll let them do that), check TSB's, check this and that. $80 tops. For $425 I think you will be buying lunch unknowingly for the service bay crew!

    LOL. I second that notion Streets. When it comes to a couple hundred bucks the big costs should be when you need things like a new alternator, catalytic converter or brakes etc.

    CONCUR 100%!! Dealer = sales = doesn't know crap most of the time.

    However, seeing as I work with engineers every day, I "balance" their input with that of my analysts. Engineers can get a bit "over zealous" sometimes when it comes to cost control and staying within the defined requirements. My analysts help to keep my engineers "coloring between the lines".

    My dealer gave me a sheet with all recommended service intervals. For the 30K service he wants $375.50. Throttle Body Service and Spark plugs are recommended and extra.

    Plugs are good for 100k, throttle body doesn't need to be touched.
