    Default 60,000 Mile Service for Civic

    I have a Civic due for its 60,000 mile service. My local Honda dealership wants $374 for the service. A local Toyota's/Honda's only shop wants $289. I used to have my 89 Toyota 4x4 seviced at that shop and the work seemed fine. As far as I can tell each shop will perform the same service.

    Will the dealership do anything special that you are aware of? Does the dealership plug into the ECU to make sure everything is running OK?

    I'm doubtful about using the scantool unless you have a check engine light on.

    They'll probably do cap/rotor/wires/spark plugs,PCV valve,change all fluids including coolant,and possibly a valve adjustment (new valve cover gasket included).

    Man, I'd put that $300 in the bank for my next car. My '94 tercel has almost 75K and has only seen gas, oil, brakes, batteries, tires, mostly by my dad or me. Not a one of the recommended toyota services. Drive it to 100-150K then sell and let the next guy worry about it.

    I believe that car has a interference engine. Change it.

    You don't need to do a Honda/Acura t-belt until 90,000 miles not 60K.

    Some cars have an engine that allows the belt to break without doing any damage. In others (like the I-Force and many Honda and Nissan engines) once the belt breaks it causes the valves to collide with other engine parts making things not so pretty.
