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?
