Just paid $800 for 30k dealer service :rant2: , is there any suggestions for less expensive service. Dealers? Or should I just take it to Pep boys, Strauss, Autozone? :hmm:

What exactly did they do for $800, new brakes & tires??...
You shouldn't have needed a coolant flush, trans service or spark plugs/tune up @ 30K.....

Did you get a b***job with that? Depending on what you had done, $800 sounds pretty steep, but for god sakes dont put your beautiful and highly sophisticated car in the hands of some Pep Boys wrenchhead (no offense to anyone who works at Pep Boys, I shop there all the time but I still dont think they're qualified to work on my car).

I only hoped that you searched this forum for threads on the 30K service before you brought your car in, or at least post an iquiry...That's why we are here....My dealer was charging I thin about 700 for the 30 K service..I posted a thread, got some feedback, and I didn't go thru with it.....

For 675, they would inspect brakes, rotate tires, oil change etc, but the main portion of this service is cleaning and flushing of the fuel system...fuel injection system is cleaned; intake valves cleaned; throttle body cleaned and flushed and some other stuff....they also replace the filter, but I have a Volant. Oh, I ended up with just an oil change (free for life), and took care of a recall item and some accessory work.
