service maintenance and towing
I bought my rav4 2007 2 years ago at 78k miles and it is now 98k miles so I am thinking to do a 100k service maintenance / tuneup. Given that I have only done an oil and filter change at ~85k miles and a break pad readjustment in the front right wheel at ~90k miles but nothing else, what would you recommend me to do?
From what I read it looks like I have to do the following:
- engine and oil filter change
- tire rotation and pressure check
- replace engine coolant
- transmission fluid flush
- visual inspection of brake lining/drums and brake pads/discs
- tighten nuts and bolts on chassis
Is there anything else you guys would recommend me to do? Also I will be towing a small boat (~1500lbs) so is there anything else I should have checked/replaced given that I will be towing something soon?
Last question, would you recommend me to go to a Toyota dealer or is a regular mechanic enough for all this?
