    I don't actually know what a "tune up" is at this stage. Your manual lists 7,500 mi, 15,000 mi, 30,000 mi, 60,000 mi, and 105,000 mile service procedures (ignoring the 90,000 mi service as it's a repeat of the 30,000 service).

    Which one? The 30,000? All fluids, all filters, rotation, check belts and brakes? $300+ in my area. 60,000 adds spark plugs and $. DIY is much cheaper, as are independent shops. Tell them the "hood" is aluminium, and not to press is shut but to drop it shut instead so they don't crease it.

    Off topic q - So seriously, I should stop pressing the hood shut? I ALWAYS let mine down and then press it shut with my palm right where the latch is.

    Yours is not aluminium, it is pressed steel I think.

    Do not press on your 02-07 hood. You cannot fix aluminum. 08+ is no longer an aluminum hood, just be careful, however they latch pretty simple.
