Brake fluid change is pretty straightforward especially if you have someone to help. One person is needed to push the pedal and the other is needed to open the valve. I guess the question is does it really need to be changed at 60k. You may be fine until 90k depending on how you drive your car: grandma or earnhardt?
Looks like that is right out of the Owner's Manual, cmichael. Was wondering if what the dealer was going to do varied from that list at all. For $695 they better be doing a bunch more work than that. Of course, I think you are using the same dealer I used to use back in the day and I would not put it past them to be charging those rates today.
I already get oil & filter and tire rotation every 5k at no charge. 84 month battery installed 6 months ago as well as a transmission flush. Recently bought front rotors and pads from Sewells and had them installed along with brake fluid flush (not done at dealership). Filters, remote battery and wiper blades are no brainers so only other items I see are: replace cooling system fluid, lubricate drive shaft and add MOC engine oil treatment (assume that's a no brainer - additive) and fuel induction and throttle body service(????).
Update - Just checked online and Motor Oil Conditioner is less than $10/bottle. I plan to switch to Castrol Synthetic after my last free oil/filter service.
Thanks, cmichael. About what I thought. Guess there are enough suckers to take that "deal" to keep them in business. Would not let that shop touch my RX unless I had to. Screwed up too many things over the years.
A local shop that I trust charged ~$560 for 60K service (though they actually replaced the transmission fluid versus just inspecting it). I'm not surprised a dealership would charge ~$700. I wouldn't trust our dealer either given prior experience.
More than half of what I paid was labor so you can definitely save a bit by doing it yourself.
