toyota maintenance
so i keep getting these coupons in the mail for yellow green or red services from the dealership, just hit 13k on my motor last week(it's a 2004) doo i really need to get those things done? for example they want to charge about 160-200 for the green service which pretty much is an oil change with a filter(oh my goodness there's a surprise!)rotate tires, tighten e-brake, change transmission fluid, check timing belts, and reset car to factory settings. is it just me or is this a little excessive? and do i need to do this to my car if it only has 15k miles?

why was it free? i was thinking i can change my transmission fluid, i alreadyy do everyother oil change my self n-e way, and discount could rotate my tires, but i wasn't sure if it would be hard to tighten the e-brake. only thing i don't think i can do is check on the timing belts exactly and restore factory settings, but hey it only has less than 15k on it, do you think it will make a diff?

I get them all the time too. I get a lot of excessive papers from them. Goes straight to the trash. Sometimes reminding me in big bold red lettering.

WARNING: Maintenence Needed. 15k blah blah

it was free, cause i was about to walk out of the dealership and the finance guy said he would throw in free maintance if i would buy my celi from him. so now no matter the maintance schedule or mileage, i just walk in and hand them my little paper he gave me.
