service maintenance for 2000 Civic
I have a 2000 Civic with 150,000 miles that my son drives. I have an appt to take it this afternoon for a wheel alignment ($70) and oil change ($30) at the Honda dealership. Now he also says it is stalling some and is sluggish.
I called about a service maintenance to be done at the same time as a checkup to find anything that might be wrong. The Honda dealership said I could have a 30,000 mile service maintenance done on it for $430, plus the $70 for the alignment.
$500 seems steep, but at the same time, I do not want a broken down car and I would like to get another 50,000 miles out of this car. I am a believer in preventive maintenance. This Civic had an extensive maintenance done at 110,000 (the service that included replacing the timing belt).
I have to take a car to a shop to have repair work done. I have no knowledge about working on vehicles. I don't think the 30,000 includes a tune up? Does this car even need a tune up?
If this were your car, what would you do?
