What are they charging for the 30,000 mile checkup? and do you know what exactly it is that they will do?
But im willing to bet the dealer has a nice list of stuff they want to check- (and from what others have posted--either unnecessary- or you can do them yourself) and they probably want about $300 to do it. I know some dealers will want to flush your coolant, transmissions, power steering, clean throttle body- injectors, etc...
Here you go---
Injector cleaning... this is an iffy one--- just buy a bottle of Techron and pour it in your gas tank.
Air filters will go to 50,000 unless dirty- or if you want to change it. You can buy at auto parts, ebay, or Amazon. heres a how to I made.
Also- they may want to sell you a throttle body cleaning. Heres the $5 way to do it. Another- how to I made.
Need to rotate the tires- heres how I do mine-
Rotate your tires? Check your brake pads, check for leaks, check fluid levels- heres what I did this weekend-
they will probably also air up your tires--- but have you ever checked the air pressure on your spare-- or lowered it...
do they include a Power steering flush?
heres how I do it little by little-- not a flush- but you change the fluid.
and last... I have not done a transmission fluid change. I will do that at 50K most likely.
And- the manual does state for a check of the fuel system (related to the high pressure fuel pump and the injectors. Something I dont think I need done- since I dont smell fuel out side of car---or have low MPG- or smell gas in the oil...
