Oil & filter change @ the dealer - what to expect?

Im just about ready to bring my Civic in to the Honda dealer for it's 1st oil & filter change. Anyone know if any other inspections are included as part of the oil & filter change service? such as fluid checks, belts, tire pressure etc?

Ive seen gas stations offer an oil change and they include some other checks, just wondering if this is the same at the dealer?

I would do the oil change myself, there not that hard and then u know that your not getting ripped off. Dealers charge too much and lots of time quality of work is not there for llittle stuff like this. I bought my first car when i was 15, im now 22, no one ever changed my oil except for me. The rest of the stuff isnt that hard to check either.

Same here, they also fill all the fluids (which is just generally windshield wiper fluid), wash the car and all that, but it's like $15.00 after tax.
