89 for a tire rotation?! If you want to do all that stuff I would take it elsewhere, that is insane.

I just performed a full fluid exchange via the return line and replaced the filter on my wife's 2014 Rav limited at 88k miles. No towing. That WS was almost black. I went with Maxlife. Only drained a little over 2 qrts from the pan so just made more sense to do the full exchange.

So what's the consensus?
Toyota rav4 2012 has 30900 miles only and I'm paranoid so want the dealer to do it in case anything goes wrong (have one year left of extended warranty)
Do I ask the dealer NOT to use a high pressure machine?
Thanks for the advice. I already made up my mind on having the dealership do it despite relatively higher price because of the extended warranty issue

Garage
The service schedule shows changing trans fluid at 60,000 if heavy use, otherwise they just inspect it. I wonder how they do that??


I'm taking mine to a different dealership in the next month or so (when I reach 60,000) and see what they say about it. I'll definitely have them change the AWD fluids and engine oil.
