Was going to edit this into the other post, but as it was getting so long decided to make it one of it's own.
Does anyone ever utilize the dealer's "Scheduled Maintenance" stuff? They're obsenely expensive, I know, even if done by a regular mechanic type and even moreso at the dealer usually. I know I did the 15,000-mile one (@23,000 miles) at Honda and then the 30,000-mile one at Honda as well. Those are the only two I ever had done as full service maintenance things, and the car is now at 95,000 miles.
Should I think about having them do the 90,000-mile service thingy? The sheet shows this as the list of all things done at 90k miles:
Change Oil and Filter, Check All Fluids: Top-Off as Necessary, Test Function of Lights/Wipers/Heating&A/C Systems, Check&Adjust Tire Pressures, Replace Air Filter, Inspect Distributor Cap & rotor, Check & Adjust Intake/Exhaust Valves, Flush Cooling System, Check Engine Belts & All Hoses, Check Exhaust System, Replace Distributor Cap & rotor (as appl.), Check & adjjust Idle Speed, Lube Throttle Linkage, Clean & adjust Front/Rear Brakes, Lube all Locks/Doors/Gaskets/Hinges/Seals, Rotate & Balance Tires, Drain & Refill Transmission Fluid, Check Ignition System/Wires, Replace Valve Cover Gasket & Spark Plug Grommets, Check Parking Brake Operation, Replace Spark Plugs, Check Axles & Axle Boots, Check Emission Control System, Indicator Operation (ML Light), Rear Differential Service (PILOT) as applicable.
Pretty big list of stuff. And I'm sure it'll be at least $500 (since the 30k one cost me over $400 back in 2007).
Now I had STS do a Transmission Fluid Exchange this past February at 79k miles. And the Timing Belt (plus 2 K-Belts) & Water Pump replaced this past August at 89k miles.
I'm heading up there in 15 minutes so I doubt I'll get any replies fast enough, but when I get up there and find out the cost I'll proably say no to them anyway...but I'd just like to hear from ya'll anyway. Since if I don't do it this time, I may still consider it later depending on what the majority say.
