What should a 30,000 mile(mileage on odometer) service include and cost? The dealership has listed more service items than the owner's manual calls for.
thanks

    Your owner's manual is definitely the right place to start. Sometimes additional services are a good idea, especially for those of us who drive in cities and do a lot of commuting. At 30,000 miles, you may need brake work, a throttle body cleaned, if the throttle body in your car is serviceable. You probably do not need any of your fluids "flushed" or a fuel injection cleaning.

    I have been advised that my 2009 Nissan Murano is up for a scheduled maintenance at 30,000 miles that will cost about $599.00 does this sound like a reasonable price for this work?

    I just paid $529 for this service and the dealer had a 15% discount internet coupon bringing the price to around $449. After nearly 4 years, its my wife's 2006 vehicle this was the first major investment made on this car. At the same time, the dealer recommended changing out the engine belts, found a cracked front engine mount and repaired a clicking in the axle (that I never heard but was not charged for). The belt replacement cost $159 and the motor mount cost arount $500.

    A reputable independent shop is charging me $252 for the 30K mile service on my 2009 Murano. They are following the "Schedule 1" maintenance intervals shown in the service manual http://www.nissanusa.com/pdf/techpubs/2009/2009_N_SMG.pdf
    This is what is required to maintain the warranty.

    A dealer may follow the "Premium" maintenance schedule, which is overkill. They created this schedule to make more money.
