1997 Honda Accord LX 5sp Wagon 73,800 mi
Honda is going to give me a tune-up at 75000 miles due to a recall (courtesy tune-up?). I never have the car serviced at the dealer because of the price. However, since it's going to be there, I wanted to ask them to quote/check some things. Can anyone suggest what else should be checked? So far, I have the following:
timing belt (dealer charges ~$480. Reasonable?)
valves: never been adjusted
front wheel bearings (making a whumping sound; would this also cause the car to shake/shudder slightly on take-off in first gear? I know CV joints can cause this.)
clutch was replaced about 1500 miles ago
Is there anything else I should look at?
How much should each of these cost to have done at a repair shop vs the dealer?
