2002 Toyota Corolla 4 cyl Four Wheel Drive Automatic 37000 miles
Hello: Tomorrow morning I am going to a new Toyota
service dept. For the 30000 mile maintenance check-up.
My old Toyota dealer abruptly shut their doors recently and economy aside I am not suprised. I had to watch,
listen and be sure of every recommendation they made after the dealership changed hands. Exactly one year ago however, while doing an oil change, I was told I needed my shoes and drums replaced because I only
had 5000 miles remaining on them. Well, I generally
only drive 5000 miles a year as you can see so I did not
do the service. However, I have since been watching the speedometer and making sure my brakes are ok but many times I kept thinking something might be wrong. In fact when I went back for an oil change, I asked about
it and was then told nothing needed to be done. That was roughly 4 months ago. I don't know what this new dealer will find tomorrow, don't know what to expect and just don't want to get ripped off. What is customary
for a 2002 car that isn't driven a great deal, but where I am light on the brakes and consider myself a very good driver, and where the car is extremely well maintained.
The maintenance is costing plenty so I just would like to
know what I should pay in the northeast reasonably for
whatever they may recommend with the brakes, if
they make recommendations at all.
