I'm not certain which items are included on a tune-up since this is not a distributor-type ignition or a carbureted fuel system.

Tune-ups consist of making fine adjustments to mechanically controlled systems. Your vehicle is computer controlled, so there is nothing to adjust.

Now, scheduled maintenance would be needed, and this would consist of everything listed in the back of your owners manual.
Things like oil changes, spark plugs, spark plug wires, fuel fitler, transmission flush and refill, filter replacements, brake system checks and flushes, etc..

The short answer, I need to know what work was performed to tell you if you received a good deal or a gouging.
