I'll kick off this thread by admitting that I really don't know dick about cars.
With that in mind I went to the dealership to get my 30K service done on my 2003 Hyundai Sonata (in addition to tire rotation/balance, oil/filter change). The only real thing that the 30K mark mandates is a transmission fluid change and coolant flush in addition to inspecting various systems.
Anyway, these assholes wanted $600 for their standard service and when I said I only wanted to do the maintenance in the manual their prices were still steep (in my admittedly ignorant opinion): 190 for transmission flush, 110 for coolant flush, 120 for induction service (my idle has been a little rough, so I do want this service done).
Anyway, any mechanically inclined people out there think these prices are too much? Also is a transmission flush even necessary? They claim it is, but I thought simpy replacing it is preferable.
All advice is appreciated.
