So I got an email from my local Scion dealer reminding me to come in for the scheduled maintenance. It included a list of what's included (pasted below). If I read this correctly, a major service is $400 and includes an oil change, tire rotation, and an air filter. In addition, they look at a bunch of stuff but don't fix it unless I pay for repairs. Does that seem a bit expensive to anyone else, or is it just me?

Yeah, I already do my own oil changes. I buy furnace filters and cut them to size for the cabin air filter.

I was mostly appalled that the price jumps from $70 for the oil change to $400; and the only thing you get for the extra $330 is a visual inspection!

I use to think the dealer had the best tecs and it gave me that warm and fuzzy feeling to get my Toyota's serviced there. When I got my used 2010 xB I took it there first thing to get the full service treatment, after treating me like crap lol, I got home and looked to see if they really replaced the air filter and found a crack in my air box. Some visual inspection right! That sucks! Tec replaced the filter and didn't even see the crack, one big enough to let dirt into my intake. I'm done trusting them and I told them they lost a loyal customer. If you don't buy you car from them (Kearny Masa Toyota) they do give a crap about you, and I payed 250.00 to find out the hard way that the service tec and service manger don't care either.
