Damn that is a lot of money!!! My usually cost about 80-90 dollars everytime I take it which is every 5000 miles. They change the oil, check the brakes, pressure in tires, fluids, I depends how many miles you got.

I have gotten a plentiful of Toyota's "tune ups". Including the $600 one twice. Most of it is crap. Now I start writing things off that I don't need or I can do myself. That leaves a very few things like grease the chasis (which I can do myself) and oil change and filter because I'm lazy. I take my car to a shop that checks my suspension, because Toyota knows nothing from my past experience. My brakes can be cleaned and checked by myself with a $3 can of brake cleaner. The engine is the same. It's all crap and I wish I never spent the money. Those Toyota mechanics are no different than those mechanics you see at a chop shop. They are all the same.
