Any thoughts on this? My dealer gave me a laundry list adding up to about $1000. I intend to compare it to the owner's manual, which probably doesn't recommend half of that. I admit I did have them change the plugs after reading that that is kind of an ordeal to DIY.
So from an ala carte perspective, which of these things do all of you think actually need to be done? My perspective on long-lived cars is change the oil frequently, repair as necessary. I am not usually a "preventative maintenance" guy, unless I can be convinced that there is (1) a performance benefit; (2) a safety issue; or (3) a significant chance of catastrophic (i.e. expensive) failure with no action e.g. timing belt.
