Oh, and I also replaced a coil pack for $80 and ten minutes work two years ago. Otherwise the sum total of non-regular-warrantee maintenance work for those seven years of ownership are as follows.

The dealer cleaned my throttle body which didn't need it (the coil pack was an intermittent failure which they failed to diagnose). Because they left a hose disconnected during this visit I received credit for a free spark plug change which I took them up on at 120,000 miles

I'm about to purchase my fourth set of tires, not including the set that came with the car.

One radiator flush at Toyota.

Replaced a defective tire pressure sensor.

Four or five wheel alignments (lifetime from Firestone so all but the first are free).

That's it. Not working from original receipts, I estimate my total costs (dealer & DIY) so far to be around $5,000 or about $722 a year ($5,000/6.92 years). This has been by far the most economical car to maintain that I have ever owned.

Now my water pump may fail tomorrow which would kill these numbers, but that has been my experience so far.
Curious..how much was the tire pressure sensor replacement? Heard it was a few hundred dollars.
Thanks for your feedback.,

I'd think a replacement would run about $100 without too much hassle, if you want to scrimp it can be had for less.

A quick call to a tire store, dealership etc. might yield the answer.

It's hard to say how much the install will cost ie: a tire dealer I know will do it free for his customers while some like dealerships will charge. As garsarno pointed out you can get 4 for $150 on eBay or buy one for $90 at a dealership.
