    I just hit 30,000 miles and when I went to schedule the service online, I found out it was going to cost around $450. So, I wanted to check with everyone to see if that's about right. The service lists a whole bunch of inspections to go along with the oil change. Are they all neccessary? I'm holding off to see what the norm is, thanks for your help.

    I got quoted $350 for mine. I didn't get too far into asking what was included. I ended up only getting an oil change from the dealership. I changed the front end, rear end and transfer case fluid on my own and rotate my own tires.

    I did the engine, rear diff, front diff, xfer case oils and rotated the tires along with cabin and engine air filter replacement myself. Only thing missing now is the spark plugs and automatic transmission fluid. Not sure if I really need to do those yet. xfer case oil looked pretty clean.

    Antioch ( California ) Toyota charged me $369.95 for 30,000 mile service ( replaced sparks plugs & oil change & replaced engine coolant & replaced air filter & etc ) last month.My 2000 Tacoma had 201,000 on it when I took it in.

    Never had my truck serviced at any independent shop ( at a cheaper price ) in the past 10 years,didn't want to risk the chance of some unethnical mechanic jerk purposely mess up my vehicle.

    Hey, maybe he prefers the higher priced unethical treatment...:D

    The dealerships usually aren't smart enough to cover their tracks if they cut corners and their easier to argue with and get it fixed. At least that's been my experience but I always test them like mark the oil filter to make sure I have a new one when I get it back, chaulk or ink pen the drain plug to make sure it was actually removed, etc. Not that I don't trust them, it's just that I don't trust them...

    The only thing I did was change the engine oil. I'm at 43k and still havent done anything except oil changes. The price places charge is insane to me.

    I agree. Prices are insane, and you never know if they are going to do something bad to your ride, whether you know them or not ( I am referring to a shop). I have mechanic friend do most of my work. For example we just did the front brakes yesterday. It cost me $38 for ceramic pads. He did a great job. Cleaned and used proper gels for all parts. He even smoothed out the rotors with a air gun disc. The stealership here in S. Florida wanted $220.00 for front brake pad replacement.
