What exactly do they service at 30000 miles and how much does a 30k maintenance service cost? barring that everything is good.

Answers from the Automotive Experts

Amanda J. Pierce, MBA Justine, If you take your matrix to a dealership, most do not charge just for a 30k inspection. Often a fuel induction service is recommended, around $135.95. A coolant flush may be recommended as well a full flush $130.95. Transmission fluid will be checked and advised upon condition. Ask if they have specials running. AJ Pierce

Jennifer Frey, Automotive Service Writer and Technician at AskPatty.com Hi Justine, That really varies from dealer to dealer. A 30,000 mile service is usually the cars 1st major service and costs a few hundred dollars, (it can vary greatly by dealer, and city and state). It will usually include and oil change, brake inspection, tire rotation, air and a/c filters, automatic transmission fluid, rear differential fluid (if equipped), and some dealers may include spark plugs and a valve adjustment. No doubt your local Toyota dealer will perform what is recommended in your Owner's manual. My advice would be to call the Toyota dealers in your area and get some price quotes. Dealers will usually match other dealers so if there is a dealer in particular you'd rather go to, ask them if they price match and then find the cheapest price. Best of luck! Jennifer Frey

Suzanne Grego, Technician at City of Philadelphia Fleet Management Justine, Different manufacturers recommend different maintenance schedules. If you have your owner's manual, the schedule for your vehicle will be in there. If not, to find out specifics, just call the dealership and ask them exactly what they do for a 30k service. Most likely they will do an oil change, change the air filter and fuel filter, rotate the tires and probably change some fluids like the transmission and coolant. It is a good idea to stick with your maintenance schedule, especially if you are still under warranty. Many times, if you don't follow the schedule and something goes wrong, it will void your warranty. Suzanne
