Only 5 items (in bold) are replaced and the LONG list of checks. They sure know how to make 'a list'. All this for a whopping grand after tax!!! I did the bold items plus a plethora of others myself two weeks ago and it costs me about $160 in (genuine) parts.

I have noticed that at my local dealership as well. Oil change and air filter change is 400$, with a overall check that would be standard or complementary at my local Chevy dealer.

All of that is basically just checking stuff too! Imagine if they had to do something do it.

I've said it many times on here and I'll say it again: if you are not doing the work yourself and you need a service, just pay for the items that are replaced a la carte. You'll almost always come out cheaper. Any tech who wants to make money will check over the car no matter what it's in for.

Changing the cabin air filter is almost worth the price (almost).

I'd say, if you are not doing the work yourself, get a Toyota before you go bankrupt... lol
