Default A Complimentary 45 point Analysis mailer

Got this mailer yesterday wanting me to book appointment for this 45
point analysis. If I had known this car would have been this high
maintenance I might have got the Lexus instead. I have 20k miles on
my 2002 TL and have been told everything from having all the body
bolts retorqued at 7500 miles to a $2.65 cent crush washer for an oil
change. What a dealer. Like the car though.

Gee, it was only 27 points with the dealer here. Ignore it. Look at the
service schedule that came with the owner's manual and only have those
things done. The rest of it is a scam.

A new crush washer is needed when changing oil on most cars. Most places
charge a flat fee for an oil change. Its unusual that they would itemize
it.

I got the same thing for my 94 GSR.

We have an ES300, the Lexus prices aren't any better, I can guarantee
you that.

For the 60,000 mile tuneup, they wanted $795. This included spark
plugs and fluid flushes, etc. But, it did not include the timing
belt.

I had it performed at the Toyota dealer (using the Lexus checklist)
and it cost me $405.
