Default Estimated Cost of a tune up

So I went to my local PEPBOYS and asked about the cost to have my KJ tuned up at 30k miles. See attached photo of the estimate. Please also note that the estimate will also include the cost of the purchase and mounting of new tires.. I am also not interested with the tires they estimated me with.

So what do you think?

Don't let them touch your trans,they have listed they will fill your trans with DEXIII ATF when your KJ requires ATF+4 only,DEXIII will kill your trans and is not full synthetic like ATF+4.They also want to add the wrong coolant to your cooling system,they want to add OAT coolant which will destroy your waterpump.Your cooling system requires HOAT coolant(commonally found at Napa as Zerex GO5).


The price is good for the plug change and with good plugs.Skip the K&N air filter for DD driving.

What a RIPOFF...

Do the stuff other than tires in your driveway and buy a case of beer with all the leftover cash!

I totally agree. Most of that isn't even required. Do you need new tires? What the heck is a "Battery Service?!" Most batteries this day are NOT serviceable! Gumout Pro Fuel? What the? Dexron III? Seriously? Say goodbye and QUICKLY to your transmission! You might not even make it out of the parking lot!

That's just a short list of questions! RUN, DO NOT WALK, FROM PEPBOYS!

Your prices are too expensive. I'll do it for 3/4 case.
