why does my dealer say $900 for the 90K service? on 2007 Toyota Camry Hybrid

the dealers in my area are quoting over $900 for 90K service, thoughts? they probably want to replace the drive belt, is this neccisary on a 3 year old car with 90K miles?

Make sure that your fluids are topped off, you have regular (no more than 7000 mile oil changes w/ synthetic) oil changes, make sure you change out the air filter, or if a K&N type, clean it, and the drive belt, which is NOT very expensive, takes a knowledgeable person about 10 to 15 minutes to replace. If someone charges you more than $150 including the cost of the belt, you are being ripped off. Period. I don't care where you live. There's great private mechanic shops, which hopefully the one that also answered you that should come in around that price. I realize that things are more expensive in Ca., but no one needs to make more than $120 / hr. In Phoenix, they make around $85 to $90 an hour, and that is an easy changeout.
