I'll second that!
But first, let me say a few words about the great tune-up ripoff.
There is NO SUCH THING AS A TUNE UP!
I come from a time when cars had points and carburetors. Tune-up was a periodic maintenance item because these parts wore out, went out of adjustment, and needed maintenance.
Modern technology has eliminated every part of a tune-up except for the spark plugs.
Spark plugs should be changed according to manufacturers recommended maintenance periods. Every 30,000 miles for regular plugs, and every 60,000 for platinums.
Filters are recommended to be replaced at around 20,000 mile intervals.
The prices you were quoted sound unreasonably high to me.
